WWE and Disney signed their first deal together.
According to Sports Business Journal, Disney has signed an exclusive deal that will see them operate the WWE Network in Indonesia.
The agreement will bring WWE Network available on Disney+ Hotstar. WWE Network is open on Disney+ Hotstar starting from Sunday, January 30, culminating with the Royal Rumble event the day before.
The new Disney agreement with the WWE will ensure that all WWE events are accessible for Disney+ Hotstar subscribers via the standard subscription. In addition, the event will be covered with both the Bahasa Indonesian language and English.
This is the first fundamental arrangement with WWE and Disney, although the two entertainment giants already have a long-standing relationship. WWE has previously signed contracts with FOX in Latin America, which then inherited by Disney as part of its 2019 acquisition of FOX entertainment assets. Disney-majority-owned Hulu also holds the United States re-air rights for RAW and SmackDown, which are up at the end of the year, and the U.S. rights to WWE Main Event.
