WWE News: WWE executive says PPV will go away "over time" after WWE Network launches
Mar 20, 2013 - 05:13 PM


WWE CFO George Barrios spoke with 4-traders.com and was asked if the shift of PPV events from traditional PPV to the WWE Network, should the network launch, mean the end of PPV. Barrios responded in the affirmative: "We believe over time. We believe the value proposition will be much more powerful to subscribe to a network at $12.99 to $40.99, 24/7, you have the pay-per-views, a lot of great content, our library, a lot of retrospective programming that we're doing that's testing really, really well, we're producing it right now so over time, I think the pay-per-view does go away." You can see the video interview and read a full transcript at http://www.4-traders.com/news/As-they-plan-to-launch-a-new-TV-network-World-Wrestling-Entertainment-CFO-George-Barrios-says-pay-p--16562704/.

Shore's Slant: Not that I disagree with Barrios or this strategy, but how wise is it to openly discuss this when there is no actual network yet? If the network never materializes, how difficult will the next contract with InDemand be after admitting several times that they want to take their product off pay-per-view?
