On Monday, FloSports and WWNLive announced a deal that will make FloSports the exclusive source for streaming Evolve Wrestling and a myriad of other independent wrestling promotions.
The deal calls for FloSports to take over worldwide, exclusive live streaming rights from WWNLive in addition to hosting their on-demand event library back to 2003.
Similar to other streaming services, all events will be available for a $20/month subscription with a deeper discount for a one-year committal. FloSports is available on both AppleTV and Roku, making it easier for users to access the service.
In conjunction with the announcement, FloSports officially launched FloSlam, a pro wrestling focused website that will feature the streams, news, and documentaries.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but it is a five-year deal that will cover roughly 60 shows yearly. It begins on November 4th with SHINE 38.
In addition to groups like FIP, SHINE, WWN Supershow and Dragon Gate, the Evolve wrestling inclusion makes this partnership all the more interesting given WWE’s recent interest in bringing on more independent wrestling as part of a tiered Network package as well as their past working relationship with Evolve.
An added layer: WWE recently was part of a group that invested in FloSports. Unless a deal can be worked out, WWE will have to look elsewhere for new sources of non-WWE wrestling content.
