WWE has been in partnership with Hulu for the past couple of years with the latter gaining access to past episodes of RAW, SmackDown, NXT as well as other shows. However, WWE’s Premium Live Events and exclusive shows continued to air on WWE Network on Peacock.
Earlier this year, it was reported that WWE’s deal with Hulu was coming to an end and if both parties weren’t able to reach an agreement, then WWE’s content library would have to find a new home. However, it doesn’t seem like that may happen anytime soon.
Ringside News founder Steve Carrier reported from WWE’s 2022 3rd quarter earnings call that WWE and Hulu will carry on their deal into 2023.
WWE has a short-term extension with Hulu as they are entering into negotiations for TV deals next year.
This means that Hulu will continue to air previous episodes of its weekly television shows until the contract extension expires. Hopefully, fans will have no trouble finding WWE content, no matter what kind of deal the company strikes.
This news will keep Hulu subscribers pleased, as they can still continue to watch their favorite WWE shows. It will be interesting to see if they will re-sign with Hulu once this extension expires as well.
