WWE and Cable Providers

Post by Vegas_Bloodstone on Thu Feb 20, 2014 10:59 pm

With Dish not offering WWE PPVs and rumors that others will soon follow, my question how long till WWE is strictly on their network?

I don't think the others will stop showing them. It'll be on a month-by-month basis. Ultimately, that'll drive people to pay 60 bucks, and get 6 months worth of PPVs when they can't get one.

Plus, not showing WWE PPVs is just taking money out of their own pockets.

They may have, but I reckon the cable providers will welcome them back with open arms.

DISH, apparently, counts for 12% of their PPV business. For not carrying EC, they are losing 460,000 bucks.

Based off what I just learned in my former math class.

I reckon, that's about 3,833,333.33 bucks on the table. Could be wrong, I hated finding "X number if X% of what number" 

minus DISH's would be cut, that's still 3,373,333.33 dollars between the other companies.

I know Dish was saying that WWE refused to lower the cost of PPVs

Knowing WWE, they probably did. Which could be both good and bad for DISH. If they lower them and buys don't change, DISH probably gets less.

If they did change, and more came in, it'd be iffy if DISH got more. Less money = less money, unless the buys were enough to offset it.

But that's just what cable companies say anyway. Whenever there is a dispute about a channel, one of them(either the content provider, or the carrier[dish, dtv, blah]), always say "They won't change their prices."
