I've noticed that the web versions of Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ do not allow any access without first entering your e-mail address and password. WWE Network allows anyone at any time to browse the entire site and see what is being offered. The only thing blocked is the video player itself. Even the content descriptions of every video are made available to the public.
Is there a reason for this? It's kind of surprising that only WWE offers this feature.
That's actually nice to hear. Seems like it could be hella problematic if there's ever a major hack, though? - the idea of being able to access the network and just the video player is protected seems like it'd be less secure than a Netflix or a Hulu.
But this setup sounds like a cable program guide approach - you can see what every channel is playing all the time (and descriptions/details), but obviously you can only access the channels that're on your cable plan...
