WWE News and Notes
– A reply to a question on Facebook regarding the WWE Network being
available on the Apple TV was deleted by the WWE social media team but not
before Apple websites such as Mac Rumors and Apple Insider got a hold of
it. A would-be WWE Network subscriber asked about the availability of WWE
Network on Apple TV, a device which WWE has so far not mentioned about
being supported. “In order to experience WWE Network on Apple TV, you must
have a second generation or later (black) Apple TV and be a WWE Network
subscriber,” read the response. The second half of the response mentions a
WWE-specific app on the Apple TV like Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLB, and others
have. “Once WWE Network is available, you will be able to launch the WWE
Network app directly from your Apple TV.” The response also said that the
app would launch on February 24. The reply by the social media team was
however deleted from the Facebook page soon after it was posted probably
because they’re not allowed to reveal it yet for some reason. At the
launch event, WWE Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer Michelle Wilson did
mention that the service would be available on a connected device that she
was not allow to mention yet. Media reps who attended that event were
given a Google Chromecast or an Apple TV for free. (thanks to Colin Vassallo)
