After nearly 1 year, WWE has announced that the WWE Network now has 1 million subscribers.
Vince McMahon commented on the milestone:
We’re thrilled that we’ve surpassed the 1 million subscriber milestone less than a year after launching WWE Network and in advance of WrestleMania, our biggest event of the year on March 29. We remain focused on delivering an outstanding value proposition for ours fans by adding new content and new features in the coming year.”
WWE will be doing another free month promotion in February, as clearly the free promotion for Survivor Series 2014 in November was a big success.
