Video game consoles are about to be put in a headlock, as World Wrestling Entertainment made a huge announcement last night during the Consumer Electronics Show that shook up the wrestling world.
The company finally announced the forthcoming WWE Network, which is a 24-hour streaming channel that features original programming, vintage wrestling shows, and access to live pay-per-views. The services will be available on a number of consoles and mobile devices, including PlayStaiton 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. (The Xbox One will follow sometime this summer.)
WWE Network will cost users $9.99 a month with a minimum six-month commitment – so no order one month and you’re out tactics for you – but, again, it comes with all the WWE pay-per-views over the year, making it a significant savings. The fact you can stream them on your favorite game console, well, that just can’t be beat.
The service goes live on February 24th at 9 AM Eastern time. If you want to learn more, head over to the WWE page. There are details galore there.
Don’t forget to play some WWE 2K14 on the side. It’s available now for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
