WWE Says the Network Has Already Reached 667,000 Subscribers

network
The goal discussed for the launch of WWE Network to be considered successful was one million subscribers by the end of 2014. According to WWE, they’re already two-thirds of the way there.

WWE says the Network has 667,287 subscribers, according to Darren Rovell, ESPN’s sports business reporter.

Obviously the value is there with the WWE Network. For $9.99 per month you get access to every WWE, ECW and WCW pay-per view, every live PPV, and a ton of other content. It isn’t exactly a hard sell to the diehards. It was the more casual fan that left some questioning if they would see the value in the WWE Network.

Apparently they did.

After just six weeks, WWE is two thirds of the way to its goal. With the international launch coming late this year or next, it seems safe to say now that the WWE Network is a success.
