WWE Network Subscriber Number Released
The WWE released their Q3 financials today, and announced the number of WWE Network subscribers. The company confirmed that they have 731,000 subscribers for the network. The company added 31,000 subscribers in the quarter, representing a 4% increase from June 30. The Network was expanded into 170 countries, and considering that they had 700,000 subscribers at the end of Q2, this has to come off as a disappointment. The company continues to gain some subscribers, but is also continuing to fail in maintaining the ones that they had.
WWE Network Pricing Plan Changed
WWE announced today in their Q3 financials report that they are introducing a new “simplified price plan” for the WWE Network. They are dropping the six-month commitment, and keeping the price at $9.99.
TNA Status Update
There have been reports that TNA Executive John Gaburick was in New York City yesterday, finalizing a new TV deal for the company. Pwinsider.com reports that they have reached out to TNA, and that is not true as Gaburick is currently in Nashville, TN at the TNA offices. TNA is still negotiating with multiple parties to secure a new TV deal. If they do secure a new TV deal, the company has a verbal agreement for three dates in early January at the Manhattan Center in New York to tape TV.
