PostSubject: New Japan Pro Wrestling Unveils It’s Own Streaming Service   Mon Dec 01, 2014 8:53 am

Moments ago, New Japan Pro Wrestling held a live press conference to announce the unveiling of their very own streaming service, “New Japan World”.

The service is available immediately, and is very similar to the WWE Network, in that the promotion will be airing all their major events live. Unlike WWE, where they have TV contracts that keep Raw and Smackdown on major networks, the bulk of New Japan content is offered as pay-per-view in Japan, and internet pay-per-view in the United States. What that means is instead of one major PPV on the WWE Network each month, you’re going to get upwards of four or five big live shows in a given month, including the G1 Tag League finals next weekend.

New Japan World is being offered at 999 yen, which is roughly $8.42 per month, and we’ve already received emails from U.S. fans that have subscribed and are watching classic content. Their website advertises its availability on desktops, tablets and smart phones as well.

You can't watch entire shows but new shows are shown live.

- Last night at 1AM ET, New Japan Pro Wrestling held a big press conference to announce the launch of New Japan World. New Japan World will be a steaming service, similar to the WWE Network in that they will have both live and archived material available. The price is 999 yen a month, which is $8.40 US at this time. Here is some of that they will include on the channel…

* Basically every major show will air live. There will be four live events in December.

* They will air five live shows in January, including the WrestleKingdom 9 event, which will cost $35 in the US on traditional PPV. They will also air the show the next night from Korakuen Hall as well as two of the FantasticaMania events with CMLL.

* Last year the entire G1 tournament, which was considered one of the greatest ever, cost $110 to order all of the shows. The G1 shows will all air on New Japan World this year.

* There are documentaries on New Japan World, focusing on some of the legendary matches in New Japan history including Antonio Inoki vs. Willem Ruska, Inoki vs. Hulk Hogan, Tiger Mask vs. Dynamite Kid, Keiji Muto vs. Nobuhiko Takada, as well as the G-1 Climax movie that aired in theaters this year.

* They have content going back to 1972 uploaded.

* During the press conference NJPW’s Takaaki Kikani stated that they were the #2 company in the world as far as business goes and #1 as far as wrestling goes. Theier goal is to overtake WWE as #1 overall.

* Much like WWE, they are cannibalizing their iPPV business. The iPPV business outside of Japan was small, so they hope that this service will attract more subscribers.

* They have a goal of 100,000 subscribers for year one.

* You can order the service here.

Yeah that, but I think it's just matches, right? I mean... You can watch every match on the card but not the entire event, if that makes sense? I don't know. Yes, every match is on there, but you can't just hit play and go through a 4 hour show like on the Network.

They probably did that to skip all the unnecessary parts, like the intermission and the beginning & end of the show where it's nothing but the commentators talking.

- According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, New Japan’s “New Japan World” online streaming service had a very successful launch. The site reports that NJPW owner Takaaki Kidani was “blown away” with how many customers came from outside of Japan.

The company has an initial goal of 100,000 subscribers and the majority of them are expected to come from the Japanese audience. There are plans to expand internationally and possibly add English commentary for major events. An English version of the website may be available soon.

Kidani said at the press conference announcing New Japan World that while they’re #2 to WWE in terms of business, they want to close the gap. The company is looking at the upcoming Tokyo Dome show, which will air on PPV in the US and be announced by Jim Ross, as a measure of how successful they can be to break into the market.
