Netflix will take over as the UK broadcaster of all WWE programming from January 2025, it has been announced.
The multi-year deal will see the streamer show programmes including Raw, Smackdown and NXT and broadcast live events such as WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Royal Rumble.
The agreement is part of a wider global deal between WWE and Netflix which will also see the flagship Raw show move away from linear TV in the US for the first time.
"This deal is transformative," said Mark Shapiro, president of WWE owner TKO. "It marries the can't-miss WWE product with Netflix's extraordinary global reach and locks in significant and predictable economics for many years.
"Our partnership fundamentally alters and strengthens the media landscape, dramatically expands the reach of WWE, and brings weekly live appointment viewing to Netflix."
WWE's original series and documentaries will also be added to the Netflix library when the deal kicks in. body check tags ::
