Happy Birthday WWE Network

WWE Network is celebrating its first birthday, and the company and its subscribers are celebrating.

To start a network, it takes time to grow, and WWE is climbing the ladder slowly but surely with this innovative idea.

Pioneering the concept on a larger scale online, WWE is leading the way for other TV networks to facilitate their own online broadcast opportunities.

WWE Network programs include groundbreaking NXT TakeOver events, original series such as Monday Night War and Legends House, WWE Network specials including The Stone Cold Podcast with Special Guests Vince McMahon and Triple H and Journey to WrestleMania 30: Daniel Bryan.

Now available on 13 platforms in more than 170 countries, WWE Network surpassed 1-million subscribers in just 11 months, making it the fastest-growing digital subscription service. In its first year, there were more than 285-million streams of WWE Network on more than 2 million unique devices.

WWE Network’s one-of-a-kind programming includes all 12 WWE pay-per-view events LIVE at no additional charge plus groundbreaking original series, reality shows, documentaries, classic matches, exclusive coverage of special events and a robust video-on-demand library with 3,000 hours available to subscribers.

Like other digital subscription services, such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, fans are able to sign up for WWE Network online by going to and can watch WWE Network on their TVs through connected devices such as Sony PlayStation 3, Sony PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku streaming devices as well as Smart TVs including Sony and Samsung.
