DirecTV Joins Dish in Dropping WWE PPV Events
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.14.2014



- In another piece of fallout to the WWE Network, DirecTV is set to drop offering WWE PPV events. According to a report at PWTorch (via PW.net), the satellite company has decided to stand with Dish Network and will not offer such shows going forward.

The moves from the two satellite companies come after WWE put their PPVs on the WWE Network for all subscribers; Dish claimed it was unfair to their customers for WWE to offer the events as part of a $10 subscription and then charge full price to watch outside the network. Dish didn't offer Elimination Chamber and nearly didn't offer WrestleMania but gave in for that show. DirecTV offered both but will not offer the rest.

Of course this will mean less buys for WWE's shows but likely more subscriptions to the network, as DirecTV and Dish customers sign up so they have access to the events. This could easily backfire for the providers.
