WWE content has been on multiple streaming services for a long time now. According to PW Insider, all WWE content on Hulu will be pulled on Saturday, September 25th because the deal for next-day rights for Raw & SmackDown will expire. Other WWE shows such as NXT, Main Event, Total Divas, and Total Bellas will be removed as well.
The majority of WWE content on Hulu has an ‘Exp. Sat’ flag as well. Talks are still going on in order to negotiate a new deal.
Hulu is actually owned by Disney and NBCUniversal owns the remaining portion. Both Disney and NBCUniversal are partners with WWE to certain degrees. WWE has been in a business relationship with Hulu for around a decade now.
During past investor calls, co-CEO of WWE Nick Khan spoke about the company’s rights involving the second-day rights for Raw and SmackDown. Khan believes multiple bidders for WWE content as streaming services get more involved in the mix in the coming years.
