In an interesting deal between two household name brands, Disney and WWE have come to an agreement to stream WWE Network in Indonesia as part of the Disney+ Hotstar service.

The deal begins with this Saturday's Royal Rumble. All WWE live events will be made available in both English and Bahasa Indonesia languages with a standard Disney+ Hotstar subscription.

Financial terms were not disclosed. This is the first such streaming agreement between Disney and WWE, but according to Deadline, "the companies are understood to have held preliminary discussions for other territories" as Disney continues to look to achieve its 2024 goal of between 300-350 million worldwide subscribers.

WWE president Nick Khan has mentioned on previous investors' calls that they were going to look for international licensing deals for the Network, similar to what they have done in the U.S. with Peacock.

The Indonesian service launched in 2020 and according to Deadline, it accounts for more than 40 million of Disney+'s global subscribers as it is offered as a low cost add on to the Hotstar service.
