WWE Network partnering with Endeavor Streaming
WWE has found a new streaming infrastructure partner for the WWE Network.
WWE has signed with Endeavor Streaming and is leaving Disney Streaming Services, which was formerly known as BAMTech. Disney/BAMTech had been WWE’s streaming provider since the Network launched in 2014.
The press release announcing the news included a statement from Vince McMahon on what the move could mean for WWE Network subscribers: “Endeavor Streaming’s best-in-class technology enables us to offer more features, elevate the user experience and provides us even more opportunity to delight our fans around the world.”
In addition to joining Endeavor Streaming, Variety noted that WWE has announced a partnership with user-interface design firm Massive Interactive. WWE said the new partnerships are “part of our evolving strategy to own more of the WWE Network technology stack.”
Endeavor is the parent company of the UFC, and UFC Fight Pass is also supported by Endeavor Streaming. Endeavor Streaming is newly created and was announced on Monday. Endeavor notes that incorporates their internal video platform technology with “OTT leader NeuLion, acquired by Endeavor in 2018, will be absorbed within the new group.”
