- According to The Wrap, Warner Bros. is in talks with WWE to acquire the company's full tape library. The site has spoken with two people with knowledge of the negotiations, who say that the deal would include the full library which includes nearly 150,000 hours of content. That includes TV shows, PPVs and house shows going as far back as the 1950s as well as "a large selection of the visual history of modern professional wrestling."

The library is currently held by Cinedigm, an independent content distributor in the US that has direct relationships with Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target, iTunes, Netflix, Amazon and many other retailers. According to an insider with knowledge of Cinedigm's contract with WWE, there is no end date for the contract but that the company is "transitioning away from the library."

Obviously, what this would mean to the WWE Network is not currently clear. Cinedigm handles WWE's home video releases; it would suggest that WWE is looking to license the rights to Warner Bros. in order to alter their home video release strategy. Another possibility is that they would sell the library to Warner Bros. and then license the content for the WWE Network. WWE has worked with Warner Bros. as of late for their Scooby-Doo films.

Holy shit. Funny
Warner Bros. also makes all of DC's films. I wonder what that would mean.

Last night TheWrap.com reported Warner Bros. Studios is in talks to acquire the entire WWE tape library, as WWE is looking to transition away from the library.

Earlier today WZ spoke with several sources close to the situation who have all labeled the report as “inaccurate.”

We previously reported that the story of WWE looking to sell their tape library was false, and WWE sources confirmed the reports to be inaccurate.

The Wrap’s story claimed Cinedigm owns the library, but this is also incorrect. WWE is the owner of their tape library, with over 150,000 hours of footage on file. Cinedigm is the current distributor of all WWE DVD releases, but does not own it. It was also noted that Warner is looking to take over the distribution rights, not buy the library.
