WWE Network surpasses 2 million total subscribers following WrestleMania 34

Originally published at https://www.postwrestling.com/2018/04/09/wwe-network-surpasses-2-million-total-subscribers-following-wrestlemania-34/

The WWE Network announced an updated subscriber number on Monday with 2,124,000 worldwide subscribers, eclipsing the 2-million mark, which they fell just short of after last year’s WrestleMania event.

The breakdown of that number is that 1,808,000 are paid subscribers and 316,000 free subscribers.

The last week of promotion for WrestleMania 34 was heavily focused on new subscribers having the ability to watch WrestleMania for free as an incentive to join the network and raise the number as high as possible for Monday’s announcement.

The paid number is also not indicative of how many are paying the full price with several promotions this year with the network offered at discounted rates during WrestleMania season.

The WWE Network’s number the day after WrestleMania 33 in 2017 was 1,661,000 paid and 288,000 free subscribers for a total of 1,949,000 subscribers worldwide.

Surely it’d make more sense to use the big events to bring in paid subscribers rather than get a load of free ones so the announcement looks good… Still confusing that they don’t stop sign up for the free trial during the 30 days leading up to WrestleMania and the day of WrestleMania.

Reigns did it.

Numbers don’t lie.
