WWE Network will also broadcast a Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown post-game show as well as a “Legend’s House”, a reality show featuring WWE Legends and Hall of Famers.
WWE Network will be available on desktops and laptops via WWE.com. WWE Network will also be available through the WWE App on: Amazon’s Kindle Fire devices; Android, ions, Roku streaming devices, PlayStation 3 & 4 and Xbox 360.
