Shane McMahon Featured in Hollywood Reporter
Former WWE executive Shane McMahon was featured in a recent article by the Hollywood Reporter, talking up his company's ambitious plans for growth in the next 2-3 years.
"You On Demand intends to be something akin to the Netflix of the Chinese market, and to that end, the company has signed a 20-year joint venture agreement with the Chinese broadcaster CCTV-6 and its pay-TV arm, China Home Cinema. The deal means the New York-based company can tout being embraced by a Chinese media giant, which McMahon hopes means that YOU On Demand is in the Chinese government's good graces as the first and only company to be licensed to operate a PPV service in all provinces in the country."
The YOU On Demand product has been in Beta testing for some time now, and by its 2013 launch, McMahon estimates they will be in 13.2 million households, "with the goal of being in 30 million homes by the end of 2013 and 200 million cable households by 2015."
