Hulu Plus has signed an exclusive, multi-year deal to offer next-day access to USA Network's WWE Monday Night Raw series and other WWE shows.

The agreement covers online streaming access to WWE's Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown, WWE NXT, WWE Superstars and WWE Main Event, which are aired across USA Network, Syfy and Ion Television. For Hispanic viewers, Hulu Latino will air WWE En Español, a Spanish-language magazine recap programme.

"As a clear leader in digital content delivery, Hulu is an ideal partner for WWE," said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman and CEO, in a statement. "Hulu delivers more ways for our fans to experience WWE programming than ever before."

The deal may also later include WWE Saturday Morning Slam, which airs on the CW's new Vortexx-branded kids programming block.
