This is really good news. The WWE Network launched in February 2014. In less than three years, the service has grown at a remarkable rate. According to cordcutternews.com, the WWE Network is the fifth most subscribed to subscription service in the USA for the third quarter of 2016. Here’s the top 5:
2. Amazon Prime
5. WWE Network
This puts the WWE Network above services such as HBO Now, Showtime and CBS All Access.
For a niche market, this puts WWE in a rather strong place. The same article mentions that WWE has 1.5 million subscribers. At $10 a month, that’s $15 million a month and $180 million a year. Obviously there are costs that have to be taken out but that’s a lot of money with a big chunk coming from just opening the video archives. With the rumored potential changes to the Network including various perks and benefits, there’s a good chance that number will only be rising in the future.
