Since the advent of the WWE Network's launch in February 2014, the streaming service's infrastructure has been handled by BAMTech, now called Disney Streaming Services, but that ended with an announcement today that WWE will be shifting its product over to Endeavor Streaming. The news was first reported today by entertainment trade publication Variety.

"Endeavor Streaming’s best-in-class technology enables us to offer more features, elevate the user experience and provides us even more opportunity to delight our fans around the world,” WWE chairman/CEO Vince McMahon said in a statement to Variety.

Endeavor Streaming’s clients also include the NFL, NBA, Euroleague, Univision, Sportsnet, Sky Sports, MSG, National Geographic, and Big Ten Network. Endeavor represents WWE as a client for a number of different deals and they officially announced the launch of Endeavor Streaming today.

There is no word when the WWE Network will shift over to Endeavor or if there will be any noticeable change for WWE Network subscribers during the transition.
BAMTech is located in Chelsea Market, there is an elevator that had all of the streaming services marked on it and WWE was not represented - which I found quite strange because I knew from day one they were streaming from the same place as MLB Network was, and MLB Network studios are there too.  So I'm not at all surprised to see this because they obviously updated the graphic knowing that WWE was moving.  I was just down there about three weeks ago, and the elevator door wrap looked brand new.
