WWE News: Vince McMahon Says WWE Network is Free for First Month

November 2, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Vince McMahon announced that the WWE Network will be available for free for the month of November for first-time subscribers.

That includes the Survivor Series.

Those interested should go to the WWE website to take advantage of the deal.

The league has changed some aspects of the network since its inception in an attempt to get more subscribers.

The free first month is similar to the deals that Netflix and Hulu Plus offer and is aimed at getting more people to try out the network and stay on as paying subscribers.

“We are excited to offer new WWE Network subscribers the month of November free to experience all of our live programming, explore thousands of hours of video-on-demand content, and watch Survivor Series, one of our most popular events,” said Michelle Wilson, chief revenue and marketing officer, in a statement.

“Our research combined with best practices in digital subscription businesses affirms our belief that a simple, single price plan will help us continue to grow WWE Network’s subscriber base.”

The free offer isn’t available in Canada.

Also, the network previously required a six-month subscription but is now available month-to-month.

Each month still costs $9.99 other than the free month.
