WWE has surpassed the 1 million subscribers mark on YouTube, surpassing popular YouTube channels such as ESPN, HBO, Comedy Central, Discovery Networks and Apple. WWE was one of the first partners with YouTube to launch original content on their channel, and the company premiered almost 30 hours of original programming in 2012 with shows such as Backstage Fallout, Outside the Ring, WWE Inbox, WWE Download and Z! True Long Island Story. With almost a half billion views, WWE has more views than Showtime, ABC News, ESPN and UFC. In addition, WWE fans watch more than 1.5 billion WWE clips a year across YouTube.
