WWE's Stephanie McMahon on the Power of Letting Fans Call the Shots

The company is a leader in the streaming market—it launched an OTT (over-the-top) Internet-based streaming service in 2014. According to research firm Parks Associates, the WWE’s service is the fifth most popular in the U.S.

Originally, the WWE had planned to do a traditional TV deal, says McMahon, but then the company started taking a closer look at its fans’ online behavior. What they learned, she says, is that WWE viewers are five times more likely to consume online media than the average person. (The WWE also boasts the second-most popular YouTube channel globally.) That data point convinced the company that, along with its live events and partnerships with USA Network and others, it should take a risk on going OTT.
