WWE Network will finally launch in the UK on 19th January.
The streaming service, which first went live in the US last year, is now available in hundreds of countries around the world, but was delayed in the UK last October – and again in November.
Now, it will finally arrive on British shores, offering streaming access to wrestling action for £9.99 a month (and €12.99 a month in Ireland) with no contract.
WWE Network subscribers in the UK and Ireland will have access to the US English language version of WWE Network, with all 12 annual pay-per-view events live, 24/7 scheduled programming and the most comprehensive video-on-demand library featuring more than 2,700 hours of content, including every WWE, WCW and ECW pay-per-view. As well as coverage of special matches, programming will range from original series and reality shows to documentaries and classic matches.
“We are thrilled to start the new year by offering WWE Network directly to our fans in the UK and Ireland,” says Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO.
“I want to thank our fans in the UK and Ireland for their patience, and I’m confident it will be well worth the wait.”
Like other digital subscription services, such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, fans are able to sign up online by going to WWE.com and can watch WWE Network on their TV through connected devices such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku streaming devices, Sony Playstation 3, Sony Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Smart TVs including Sony and Samsung.
The launch arrives just in time for fans to watch Royal Rumble on Sunday 25th January.
