WWE network gets global OTT launch; Rolls out in 170 territories | Over-the-top wrestling channel WWE Network has launched outside the US for the first time. The network, which sports entertainment giant WWE launched earlier this year in the States, is rolling out in 170 territories including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, Spain, and the Nordics.

The WWE expects the network to be available in the UK by October, and launch dates for Italy, UAE, Germany, Japan, India, China, Thailand and Malaysia will follow at a later date. Consumers will be able to access the service via WWE.com, with a commitment to a six-month contract at US$9.99 a month giving them access to 24/7 programming, 12 live payper- view- events and the WWE library ondemand. Alternatively, a monthly US$12.99 contract allows customers to cancel at any time. The service, however, has struggled to attract subscribers since launch in the US.
