Netflix on Tuedsday said it will soon be home to the WWE’s most-watched wrestling show, as part of a multibillion-dollar deal that will throw the company into the ring of live sports. 

The streaming giant is acquiring the rights to WWE Raw in a $5 billion deal to be paid out over 10 years, as the wrestling group’s contract with Comcast nears its expiration, Bloomberg reported. The series will begin airing on Netflix in January and will be available to subscribers in North America and other international markets. WWE is part of TKO Group Holdings.
