Vince McMahon and George Barrios talk network

Vince McMahon and George Barrios had a call with investors this morning to talk about the launch of the network.

There wasn't a lot significant to come out of it that hasn't already been covered.  They did note that there are 88 million U.S. homes that have broadband capability.

Sign-ups for the network will begin at 9 a.m. on 2/24 with programming beginning about 14 hours later.

They are predicting 2 million to 3 million U.S. subscribers by the end of 2015 and 750,000 to 1.5 million for the rest of the world.

They also said in talks with USA that they believe the network will lead to an increase in both Raw and Smackdown TV ratings.

They expected a studio talk show to debut in a few months.
