WWE Partnering Up with YouTube for New Paid Content Channel

– According to Variety, WWE will be joining about 100 other channels on a new TV initiative by the Google-owned YouTube.

WWE will be providing content to YouTube’s new service. It sounds like this could be the first clearance for the new WWE network.

YouTube will pay each channel no more than $5 million and in turn, will charge viewers a fee to view the content.

YouTube is launching the new initiative to compete with satellite and cable TV providers. Other channels joining WWE include The Wall Street Journal, skateboarder Tony Hawk, actor Ashton Kutcher, Shaq and others.

Most of the channels will be launching early next year and once up and running, the channels will provide about 25 hours of new content each day.

    I never get ads, go me! But Google started ruining a once great thing the moment they touched it with their greedy fingers. I wouldn’t be surprised if they made users buy a membership fee next.

    I’m already sick of the non stop advertisement before videos. Make us pay to watch YT videos? You must be crazy!

  • Devil_Rising

    I really don’t care, so long as USER uploaded videos are still free, and don’t suffer.
