WWE’s quarterly earnings report lists the WWE Network as having 1.528 million paid subscribers as of December 31, 2018. The number was down from the 1.615 million subscriber mark that was announced at the end of the third quarter. The paid count at the end of 2017 was announced as 1.471 million.
Powell’s POV: The international paid subscriber count for the 2018 fourth quarter was 412,000, while 1.116 million paid subscribers came from the United States. The paid network subscriber count peaked for 2018 at 1.742 million coming out of WrestleMania.

Check back at that time for my live report on the conference call. Plus, Jake Barnett and I will be discussing the newsworthy aspects of the report and the conference call in today’s Dot Net Weekly audio show for members.
