On Monday, fledgling streaming company, FloSports, announced that they have signed a new 5-year deal with WWN to begin streaming WWN’s family of independent promotions, including EVOLVE and SHINE, beginning on November 4 with SHINE’s SHINE #38 iPPV. FloSports, which announced back in August that they have received over $21 million in investments towards their services, including by the WWE, is said to be looking into making deals with more top independent promotions to exclusively stream their content. With the deal, this is said to not change WWN’s current working relationship with the WWE, nor will FloSports be taking over the production of the WWN-branded iPPVs.
Fans can subscribe to FloSports’s FloSlam service to access live iPPVs and on-demand content from WWN and other wrestling promotions for $20 a month, or $150 a year at http://www.floslam.tv
