WWE Raw to move to Netflix in game-changing billion-dollar deal with start date announced

Netflix have agreed a game-changing deal worth a reported $5 billion [£3.9b] to stream WWE's flagship RAW programme over the next decade.

Beginning in January 2025, the streaming giant will be the exclusive new home of RAW in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Latin America, among other territories.

The show, which airs live every Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, is currently the most popular show on USA Network. It is said to bring in 17.5 million unique viewers over the course of the year.

In a statement on Netflix's official website, it was confirmed that the service will become the home of all WWE shows and specials outside the United States.

That includes Smackdown and NXT, as well as pay-per-view live events including Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble and SummerSlam, which will crucially come at no additional cost to Netflix customers.

WWE's award-winning documentaries, original series and forthcoming projects will also be available to watch.

Triple H, the former WWE superstar who is currently their head of creative and chief content officer, reacted to the huge news on Tuesday.

"This partnership is one that will break new ground, and take @WWE to new heights," he wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. "Thrilled to bring #WWERaw to @Netflix, coming January 2025. Now we change the game!!!!"

WWE president Nick Khan also praised the partnership, saying: “In its relatively short history, Netflix has engineered a phenomenal track record for storytelling.

"We believe Netflix, as one of the world’s leading entertainment brands, is the ideal long-term home for Raw’s live, loyal, and ever-growing fan base."

Netflix president and COO Mark Shapiro called the deal "transformative" in a statement.

"It marries the can’t-miss WWE product with Netflix’s extraordinary global reach and locks in significant and predictable economics for many years," he said.

"Our partnership fundamentally alters and strengthens the media landscape, dramatically expands the reach of WWE, and brings weekly live appointment viewing to Netflix.”

Netflix is one of the world's leading entertainment services with over 247 million paid memberships in over 190 countries. WWE, meanwhile, can be seen in more than 1 billion homes worldwide in 25 languages.
