WWE Network launches on OTT in over 170 countries

MUMBAI: Sports entertainment company WWE has announced that the US English language version of WWE Network is available on over-the-top in more than 170 countries and territories, including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, Spain, and the Nordics.

The network is expected to be live in the U.K. by this October and plans for the network in India, Italy, UAE, Germany, Japan, China, Thailand and Malaysia will be communicated at a later date.

For $9.99 per month with a six month commitment, fans will have access to 24/7 programming, all 12 live WWE pay-per-view events, and the most comprehensive video-on-demand library. In addition, subscribers can now choose a monthly offering at $12.99 (U.S. dollars) with no commitment and the ability to cancel at any time.

The $12.99 price point is a change from the previously announced $19.99 monthly plan and allows WWE to offer an option with no commitment that we believe better reflects the variety of economies that exist internationally.

Like other digital subscription services, such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, fans are able to subscribe online by going to WWE.com and clicking on the WWE Network button on the top right corner of the navigation bar. Throughout the day, WWE Network will be made available internationally across all platforms including web, mobile, gaming consoles and connected devices.

Additionally, WWE today announced that WWE Network will be available by tomorrow on Sony internet connected TVs, Blu-ray Disc players and Blu-ray home theater systems. By this Friday, WWE Network will be available on Samsung smart TV devices, Blu-ray players and home theater systems.
