WWE’s quarterly earnings report lists the WWE Network as having 1.742 million paid subscribers as of June 30, 2018. The number was down from the 1.81 million subscriber mark that was announced April 3, 2018 (the day after WrestleMania) and up from the the 1.633 million for the second quarter in 2017.
The overall WWE Network subscriber count (including free promotional users) is 1.787 million through the end of the second quarter. The overall WWE Network subscriber count on April 3, 2018 was 2.12 million.
Powell’s POV: WWE is touting 1.8 million average paid subscribers in quarter two compared to 1.634 in the prior year quarter. Total revenue for WWE Network (including pay-per-views) in quarter two is listed as $56.2 million. The international paid subscriber count is 470,000, while 1.272 million paid subscribers came from the United States.
