Foxtel Group, WWE Announce Partnership Extension

The Foxtel Group, along with the WWE, have announced a multi-year broadcasting partnership, where the broadcaster will provide live and on-demand coverage of the WWE.

The deal will see the WWE broadcast exclusively across Foxtel and streaming platforms, Kayo Sports and BINGE, with a dedicated 24/7 WWE channel being launched in December this year.

Additionally, BINGE will become the streaming home of the WWE Network from January 2023, which includes Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania 39 and all other premium events.

Commenting on the deal, Foxtel Group chief content and commercial officer, Amanda Laing, said: “We are thrilled to remain the long-term partner of WWE, and be part of what will be an exciting new chapter for WWE in Australia.”

“The reach of the Foxtel Group is a game-changer for our partners such as WWE. It’s why sport and entertainment partners in Australia and around the globe, including major Hollywood studios and world-leading sports and now WWE, continue to choose the Foxtel Group to showcase their content and build their audience reach in Australia.

“We are particularly pleased to offer all our Foxtel subscribers access to WWE’s Premium Live Events, that were previously only available on a pay-per-view basis for up to $30 per event, at no extra cost,” she said.

BINGE executive director, Alison Hurbert-Burns, added: “For generations WWE has delighted fans across the globe and we’re thrilled this expanded partnership makes BINGE the new streaming home of WWE in Australia.”

“We can’t wait to bring WWE’s unpredictable drama, larger-than-life personalities from past and present including Roman Reigns, Rey Mysterio, Ronda Rousey, John Cena and The Undertaker, along with all the world-class WWE action to passionate Australian fans,” she said.

On the Foxtel Group, WWE chairwoman and co-ceo, Stephanie McMahon, said: “With its far-reaching and engaged audience, the Foxtel Group has been a trusted and long-standing partner of WWE for more than 20 years.”

“We look forward to expanding our partnership with the Foxtel Group, and welcoming BINGE as the new streaming home of WWE Network in the region.

“Together we will continue to provide our unique blend of action-packed, family-friendly entertainment to fans and grow the WWE audience throughout Australia,” she said.

The broadcast deal comes after the WWE announced a wide-reaching partnership with global retail company, Fanatics.
