WWE's streaming network breaks new ground

The streaming debut of the WWE Network (WWE) had a few glitches, but is now back up and running.

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.

    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.
