Big Changes Coming To The WWE Network This Year

Quote:
WWE has been working on the introduction of a new WWE Network launch that will take place later this year.

The new platform, which WWE partnered with the Endeavor streaming company on, was referred to as a "re-launch" of the Network at one point during today's Q1 earnings call with WWE executives. WWE Co-President George Barrios noted that their team has been working on the new platform for over a year, and they are very excited for it to be released.

Barrios said the new platform will introduce new features that fans have been asking for, and they believe it will help with the growth of the Network. The new platform will develop over the next few years and they are excited about what it will grow into.

Barrios would not confirm which quarter the re-launch will happen in, but he did say it will take place in 2019.

WWE officials have been talking about introducing a tiered pricing version of the Network for a while now. It was noted earlier this year in the 2018 Q4 earnings call that they were "developing the next iteration" of the Network. There's no word yet on details of the new platform or possible tiered plans, but WWE issued a survey in 2018 that gauged interest on a potential premium tier of the Network, which would offer "more content, features, and perks" for $15 per month.

We have details on the updated WWE Network subscriber countdown and breakdown at this link.

Re: Big Changes Coming To The WWE Network This Year

This is the cutest way they can possibly step back from their insanely premature decision to make PPVs inclusive of the subscription cost, and at least get WrestleMania, the Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and Money in the Bank back to being events you need to order, since UFC had the bright idea of simply making them available to purchase through their OTT. It's obvious that the Network has hit a ceiling in terms of number of subscribers, so now it becomes about milking the saps that have it.

The Network has the most garbage search function ever.
Fix that.

I'd love to believe it's something like making Raw and Smackdown available next day but something tells me whatever it is will be beneficial for them not us. Probably looking to charge a little more for PPV or paying like a dollar each week to watch Raw live and another for Smackdown. I dunno what to think honestly.

I’m presuming for $15 one will get:

1) No ads, or only 10 second ads
2) Access to all historic PPVs and Vault content
3) All PPVs

For $9.99 one would instead get

1) 1 minute ads before and during content
2) No historic content
3) Current PPVs, but only one month later

The era of the wrestling PPV is over. I can't see myself ever paying serious money for a single show again. In the age of illegal streaming Network priced included live PPV became a must that most wrestling companies have adopted since WWE Network launched.

That model wouldn't be terrible although I'd still like access to Raw and Smackdown shows sooner than 30 days. Maybe they'll work that in there, I can't be the only making noise about that.
