  • The on-demand part of the company's website and app didn't perform perfectly due in part to high demand after the midnight launch.
  • The WWE streaming service will be an early test to see if online viewers will pay to watch live sports and entertainment.
  • Related: Just last week, 120 Sports (TWX) announced an online sports venture that looks to be disruptive.

    I anticipate after the company gets its act together for the roll-out of the network (no excuse for not being prepared), the number of subscribers will drive the SP higher. Would love to it hit 30.

    This could be a huge precedent if successful. DIS (OTC:ESPN) should be worried. All other sports leagues will eventually eliminate the middleman networks and deliver their content directly to their audiences.
