ETN was created by skateboarders and offering raw, gnarly, and exclusive access to original skateboarding shows and live events via their app back in 2016 with the creative director Erik Bragg who brilliantly hustle his way through the skate scene by using his ability as a website designer to creating Ryan Sheckler's site to knowing the pro skaters and editing his lottery ticket hoax winning and just being creative.
The streaming service has well-known shows like Face Melters, Foooour Wheels Live, a talk show called Topical Paradise, Get lost, and more. However, in 2018 Bragg announced his departure from the skateboarding pay-per-view on The Nine Club Experience. The separation was about the creative differences of the new management after Brian Atlas left. The company was growing but Bragg was not seeing eye-to-eye with the new network guy on the new strategy.
Fast forward to 2021, Erik Bragg visits The Nine Club for a stop and chat. And he immediately said that ETN will finally release all the programming for free on YouTube after Chris Roberts and the other host jokingly asked him about the network.
Bragg says, "We've been talking about trying to get it to be seen again for a couple of years now, but there was a bunch of acquisitions with SLS and this other production company that bought SLS which owns the ETN library, and all the stuff was on a server, and it got moved to the new office, and then there was covid, and no one's allowed to go the office so, it's been something we've been trying to work out for years, and today they're like yeah we got it we can do it like next month."
