WWE Teams With YouTube22 Jun, 2010 By: Billy Gil
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and YouTube have announced a multiyear agreement for full episodes of WWE “Friday Night SmackDown,” “WWE NXT,” “WWE Superstars” and “ECW” to appear on WWE’s YouTube channel.
The partnership is notable for being one of the first to make full TV episodes officially available on YouTube, at www.YouTube.com/WWE.
“WWE has established itself as one of the top global entertainment brands in the world,” said Chris Maxcy, strategic partner director at YouTube. “WWE’s content is hugely popular on YouTube. Bringing in full-length, primetime television programs to the site is a huge win for our community and fans of the WWE.”
WWE also will up the number of “Monday Night Raw” and “WWE Classics” clips it offers. WWE’s YouTube channel previously had 90,000 subscribers with more than 100 million WWE videos viewed.
