WWE announces new partner for video distribution in Europe, Middle East and Africa

WWE announced a distribution agreement for home video with FremantleMedia Enterprises to distribute WWE DVD, Blu-Ray and any other digital content across Europe, Middle East, and Africa, replacing their long-time partners SilverVision.

The deal goes into effect in January of 2013 and will see FME manage the DVD, Blu-ray and digital rights for all new and existing WWE content, making it the first time that fans of WWE’s popular programming can access it digitally across EMEA.

Pete Kalhan, SVP Home Entertainment & Archive EMEA, FME, commented, “WWE is an incredibly strong and ever-growing brand with a huge and extremely dedicated global fan base. The brand has a rich history and has performed exceptionally well on DVD for many years. We look forward to working with WWE to grow all aspects of their home entertainment catalogue and are particularly excited about introducing the content to the masses across EMEA via digital platforms.”

Casey Collins, Executive Vice President, Consumer Products for WWE said, “WWE is pleased to partner with FremantleMedia Enterprises on the digital and retail distribution of our content in EMEA. FME’s broad retail reach will allow us to place more WWE content across all channels where our fans shop.”
