WWE Network averages 918,000 subscribers through Q1 2015

March 30, 2015

The WWE announced its network subscription numbers on Monday and Wall Street was unimpressed.  The WWE Network surpassed 1.3 million subscribers which is almost double its total from a year ago.  The current average is approximately 918,000 paid subscribers through the first quarter of 2015.

The WWE stock dipped during the day on Monday on “confusion over the company’s subscription growth,” according to analyst Laura Martin of Needham & Co.  Last year, the company announced WWE Network subscriptions at 667,000.  The average is at 918,000 per company press release.

The WWE Network surpassed 1 million subscribers in late January.

Payout Perspective:

As of the time of this writing, WWE stock was rallying in after-hours trading.  The 1.3 million subscribers sounds like a good number considering we are over a year in with the platform, but the fluctuations in how many subscribers there are at a current time still remains a source of confusion for investors.  Thus, this may be the reason the stock dipped today.  The network announced 8 new original series for the network during WrestleMania 31 on Sunday which the company hopes will facilitate consumer retention of the network.

    “I hear below 50k hahahahahaha”

    The voices in your head aren’t actually real. The rest of us do not hear that.

    Saldaqueef just makes up statistics, then when people find the actual numbers and humiliate him with them, he calls them google educated. HAHAHAHA!!! Fucking retard! HAHAHAHA!!

    The UFC has no reason to release fight pass numbers. They do not sell ad space on there so there is no need to release its numbers. They are to no use to anyone but the UFC. I have fight pass as well as my brother. To think only 50k have it is ignorant. To many stats have headlined fight pass events like Connor and Gus to think their fans in those countries would miss those events because they didn’t want to pay $10 for fight pass!

Got something to say?
