WWE's subscriber numbers continue to grow.
In a press release highlighting their fourth quarter results, WWE reported today that 1.48 million people are paid subscribers to the WWE Network during the fourth quarter of 2017. The press release notes that this is consistent with the company's guidance.
For the first quarter of 2018, WWE continues to expect their paid numbers to grow. They project that 1.53 million people will have subscribed to the Network by then. In terms of revenue, both the Network and pay-per-view increased by six percent to $47.3 million dollars, while subscription revenue increased by five percent to $43.4 million.
In the United States, the WWE Network has 1,065,000 subscribers, while internationally there are about 406,000 subscribers. This is an increase from last year's fourth quarter, which had 1,033,000 United States subscribers and 370,000 subscribers internationally.
The WWE Network was launched back in 2014, providing all big live events, as well as new in-ring and historical content, on one streaming service. WWE's subscriber base since launching has steadily grown, continuing to gain in numbers both in the United States and internationally.
