STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– WWE (NYSE: WWE) and C&W Communications (CWC) today announced a major broadcast partnership that will see Flow TV – the leading TV service in the region – become the new home of WWE Network across the Caribbean.
The partnership includes all WWE Premium Live Events, kicking off with Clash at the Castle this Saturday, available for customers subscribed to the Flow Sports packages on Flow Sports Extra Channel 4. WWE Network’s full library of original and archived programming will be available to stream on-demand via Flow TV VOD to all CWC Flow TV subscribers.
Additionally, linear channel Flow 1 will continue to broadcast live weekly episodes of Raw®, SmackDown® and NXT 2.0® to all CWC Flow TV and BTC TV subscribers.
