It will feature all 12 WWE live pay-per-view events – including WrestleMania.
WWE Network will also include original programming, reality shows, documentaries, classic matches and more than 1,500 hours of video on demand at launch.
Fans can subscribe to WWE Network beginning at 9 am ET on Monday, Feb. 24 at WWE.com, and for a limited time will be offered a free one week trial.
WWE Network, delivered directly to fans through over-the-top digital distribution, will be available on desktops and laptops via WWE.com.
It will also be available through the WWE App on: Amazon’s Kindle Fire devices; Android devices such as Samsung Galaxy; iOS devices such as Apple iPad and iPhone; Roku streaming devices; Sony PlayStation 3 and Sony PlayStation 4; and Xbox 360.

“Today is a historic day for WWE as we transform and reimagine how we deliver our premium live content and 24/7 programming directly to our fans around the world,” said Vince McMahon, WWE chairman & CEO.
WWE Network will also offer fans a second screen experience for all original programming and live events via the WWE App, similar to the interactive fan experience currently available for TV programs Raw and SmackDown.
WWE collaborated with MLB Advanced Media (MLBAM) to build a solution for delivering 24/7 WWE content to fans.
