Dish Network Relents, Will Offer ‘WrestleMania 30’

Dish Network has reversed its decision not to offer next month’s “WrestleMania 30” to its subscribers.

The company announced this week, “Dish will offer WWE’s ‘WrestleMania’ pay-per-view event, airing Sunday, April 6, on channel 455 and 456 in HD and SD, respectively.”

In February, the satellite service said it would no longer offer WWE’s PPVs, starting with that month’s “Elimination Chamber,” because of the launch of the WWE Network, a digital service that offers subscribers who pay $9.99 a month an original slate of series and access to a vast library of content, as well as all of WWE’s PPVs, including “WrestleMania 30.”

“WrestleMania 30” will still be sold on all other cable and satellite providers now. Annual event is considered WWE’s Super Bowl and typically generates around 1 million PPV buys.

“As WWE enters the increasingly fragmented media world by themselves, Dish will continue to consider the value of WWE pay-per-view on an event by event basis,” it said last month. A new statement this week repeated that plan.

While DirecTV also expressed concern over the PPVs on WWE Network, Dish wound up being the only provider to pull PPVs from its lineup. WWE chairman Vince McMahon had called the move “foolish,” saying that such a move would leave “found money” on the table.
