MediaPost.com is reporting that MyNetworkTV is paying WWE a licensing fee and will then gain all of the advertising time. To help compensate for the fee, MNTV is asking affiliates to give up an extra two minutes of ad inventory each hour during the show. According to a MNTV representative, so far affiliates have been amenable.
