DISH Network Issues Statements On Elimination Chamber & Their Future With WWE PPVs



Elimination Chamber

- As PWMania.com reported, WWE confirmed in a statement today that DISH Network will not be carrying the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. DISH has released a statement to Zap2It and says they will continue to consider the value of WWE pay-per-view on an event-by-event basis:

“WWE has chosen to launch a 24/7 online network, without its TV partners, that includes all of its pay-per-view events. As WWE enters the increasingly fragmented media world by themselves, DISH will continue to consider the value of WWE pay-per-view on an event by event basis. DISH continues to provide a variety of WWE programming, including ‘WWE Raw’ on USA, ‘WWE Smackdown’ on Syfy, ‘WWE Main Event’ on Ion and ‘WWE Total Divas” on E!. At this time, WWE pay-per-view events are not available on DISH.”

DISH also posted the following on their Facebook page:

“DISH will not offer the ‘WWE Elimination Chamber’ PPV on 2/23. WWE is not willing to adjust their PPV costs to satellite and cable companies, which is unfair to their customers. We need to re-focus our efforts to support partners that better serve DISH customers. Other satellite and cable companies, including DIRECTV, have also expressed they may no longer provide WWE PPV events in the future.”
