MAJOR PROVIDER INTERESTED IN WWE NETWORK, FULL DETAILS

By Mike Johnson on 2013-02-09 16:11:52
DirecTV is taking a big interest in the potential WWE Network and issued a survey to their subscribers on Thursday gauging interest in the carrier picking up the network.

In the survey, it was noted that the network could carry 11 WWE PPVs (everything but Wrestlemania) and asked for feedback on how often viewers ordered PPVs and whether they would order the PPVs if they didn't have access to the channel. They were asked if the PPVs being carried on the channel would be of value to the overall network.

DirecTV also requested viewer feedback on potential original WWE programming, listing The Monday Night Wars, classic matches, games shows and documentaries as material the Network could produce.

DirecTV also asked for feedback on the network being part of a larger package or as a stand alone channel. As a stand alone channel, the network asked for feedback on different price points, listing $29.99, $24.99, $19.99, $16.99 and $12.99 and asking whether the Network was worth those prices per month.

Viewers were also asked if they would still order Wrestlemania on PPV if they purchased the channel.

They were also asked if they felt DirecTV would be a better value with the network.

Thanks to Rick for his help.
