WWE has signed a new deal with Disney for their media rights, meaning the WWE Network will be available via the media giant’s streaming service in Indonesia.

In 2021, WWE announced they were signing a deal with NBC Universal to provide their Network as part of NBC’s Peacock streaming service.

The 5-year $1 billion deal was recently discussed by company President Nick Khan in an interview with the Sports Business Journal where Khan stated:

“In what is now a cluttered OTT subscriber marketplace, it only made sense to partner with somebody. We want to be in business with everybody who is a real player in this business. Understanding the business – where it’s at and where it’s heading – is a key part to all of this.”

Now WWE has taken the approach in Indonesia where the SBJ is reporting that the company has signed its first deal with Disney. The deal will see the WWE Network move to the streaming service Disney+ Hotstar beginning with the Royal Rumble in Indonesia – the fourth most populous country in the world.

Events on the streaming service will be available in English as well as the Bahasa Indonesian language and the content will be included as part of a standard subscription to the Disney+ Hotstar service.
