WWE announced today in their earnings report that WWE Network revenues, which include revenue generated by WWE Network and pay-per-view, increased 6% to $46.2 million from $43.7 million. WWE Network subscription revenue increased 5% to $43.4 million based on a comparable increase in average paid subscribers to 1.48 million (1.06 million U.S. paid subscribers and 0.41 million international paid subscribers) at the end of the fourth quarter, representing a 5% increase from December 31, 2016. WWE Network content, including pay-per-views, original series, NXT Takeover, and specials continued to drive viewer engagement. The Company added nearly 300 hours of original content to WWE Network’s featured programming in 2017, and more than 2,400 hours of archival content, which resulted in an on-demand library of approximately 9,400 hours at year-end 2017.

WWE is projecting average paid Network subscriptions to rise to 1.53 million, an increase of 4% from the last quarter, and aim for a 3% growth from year to year.
