The WWE Network launched the free version of their streaming service to not much fanfare. They wanted to see how it works before announcing it to a wider audience. Hopefully, they can fix some issues like the ones that caused tons of fans to miss Starrcade
The WWE Network tier system has been long talked about, but now it appears to be upon us. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the idea is to have three tiers. The free tier, a $9.99 tier, and a $14.99 tier.
Those fans paying for the highest level tier will have access to events that weren’t previously available on the WWE Network. Those companies might not even be under the WWE roof, but it is still content that WWE can use.
The idea has been to do a three-tiered network, with a free tier, the $9.99 tier and a $14.99 tier (which should be launched early next year and would feature content from Evolve, Progress, wXw and perhaps other promotions) for early next year.
We’ll have to see how much content from other companies WWE decides to use. They could certainly stream any number of libraries from CZW to WWC in Puerto Rico. A lot of fans might be really excited about Evolve, Progress, and wXw as well. It will be interesting to see what else WWE Network puts on the highest level tier to further entice fans to shell out an extra five dollars a month.
