WWE Network Touts Free February Offer
Days after pinning down 1 million subscribers, the WWE Network will be offered free to non-subscribers for the month of February, according to the pro wrestling outfit.
During the month of February, subscribers will have access to all of WWE Network’s programming, which includes live coverage of all 12 WWE pay-per-view events including its Feb. 22 WWE Fast Lane event, original reality shows, documentaries, and WWE library content, said company officials.
The WWE credits a similar free month offer in November for helping the $9.99 per month subscription service reach the 1 million mark.
“Last November we offered a free month of WWE Network to new subscribers with great success, helping us reach the 1 million subscriber milestone,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE Chief Revenue & Marketing Officer. “We are excited to extend the same opportunity in February to those who have not yet subscribed so they can experience all that WWE Network offers right before WrestleMania (on March 29).”
