Following a poor reception to the WWE Network from both cable distributors and consumers alike, WWE’s plans for the fledgling channel are being revamped, FightNetwork.com’s Live Audio Wrestling reports Friday. The project has undergone some major changes behind-the-scenes with the entire concept being revamped, a WWE source told the website.
Cable and satellite-television providers have expressed little to no interest in carrying the wrestling-centric channel due to the belief it’s not viable. And while WWE has considered making the network a pay-subscription channel, the internal belief is that it would be extremely difficult to make the venture profitable in today’s climate.
Despite these dilemmas, WWE plans to eventually get the project off the ground in some form or fashion. Details are scarce but the company is expected to make an announcement in the future regarding some sort of partnership.
