WWE Possibly Looking Into Closed Circuit Events For PPV
By Ryan Clark | June 11, 2009
Another portion of the survey questioned fans about the interest in watching WWE PPVs aired via closed circuit in high definition at movie theater chains. Cineplex Entertainment in Canada already does this. Before the boom of PPV, major arena shows, including the first three WrestleMania events used closed circuit. WWE did some testing for this back in 2008, when they released the Greatest Superstars of Wrestlemania DVD for a short run in Carmike Cinemas.
In the last few years, Fathom Events and Sony's Hot Ticket have used closed circuit theatres to show live concerts, opera events, Broadway shows and other events.
