The WWE Network is now available in over 170 countries and territories, including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, Spain and the Nordics, among others.
The network is expected to go live in the UK this October, and will roll out in Italy, UAE, Germany, Japan, India, China, Thailand and Malaysia in the near future.
For $9.99 (€7.48) per month with a six month commitment, wrestling fans will have access to 24/7 programming, all 12 live WWE pay-per-view events, and a comprehensive VoD library. In addition, subscribers can now choose a monthly offering at $12.99 with no commitment and the ability to cancel at any time.
WWE Network will be made available internationally across all platforms including web, mobile, gaming consoles and connected devices.
This Sunday the WWE Network will stream the Summerslam PPV live – traditionally one of the biggest events on the WWE calendar. The card is headlined by Brock Lesnar v John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.
