Starting January 2025, Raw becomes exclusively available on Netflix in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Latin America, with plans to expand globally.

Netflix will also become the home for all WWE shows and specials outside the U.S. as they become available, inclusive of Raw and WWE’s other weekly shows, SmackDown and NXT. Not only that, but the company’s Premium Live Events, including WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Royal Rumble too.

In more updates, as per CNBC, the matches will be scripted around the commercial break to satisfy ad-free customers. They will be able to enjoy the full match from the live matches. In conclusion, this move will certainly turn out to be beneficial for the company in the future.
