WWE Network | Price, features and content compared

WWENewtwork

WWE Network offers the best in professional wrestling with both live broadcast events and a massive library of past performances to watch on demand.


If you’re a fan of the professional wrestling shows put out by WWE entertainment, then the WWE Network is practically heaven for you.

Where once you’d have to pay $30 or more for a single Pay-per-View event, you can now stream every PPV ever put out under the WWE umbrella (including older events put out by companies that WWE has bought out such as WCW, ECW and a number of smaller US promotions), as well as the latest PPV events and special network-only shows to boot.

With thousands of hours of content, there’s more than enough wrestling to keep you happy for months at a single low price.

How much does WWE Network cost in Australia?

WWE Network is sold on a rolling subscription basis, with each month’s access charged at US$9.99/month. During your subscription period you can watch any new PPV or special events, as well as new shows and everything in the WWE network archive live and on demand from your choice of device.

If you're a new customer, WWE offers a 30-day trial of the service. You do need a credit card to access the trial, and charges will apply if you don't cancel before the 30-day trial period expires.

How much data does WWE Network use?

WWE uses an adaptive streaming model, so usage may vary depending on the quality of your network connection. At maximum quality you can expect to use around 1.35GB of data per hour. As with most streaming video services it’s highly advisable to watch using a fixed line connection rather than more costly mobile broadband services.

What kind of content is available?

WWE has largely shifted its existing Pay-Per-View business over to the WWE Network. While those shows are still offered on an ad-hoc basis via Main Event for Foxtel subscribers, they’re also shown simultaneously on WWE Network, including any pre- and post-show specials.

This includes the 'big four' PPVs (Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, Summerslam and Survivor Series) as well as the brand-specific PPV events such as Hell In A Cell, No Mercy and Elimination Chamber.

Alongside its live broadcast PPV events, WWE currently produces two live shows exclusively for the WWE Network. NXT showcases the WWE’s developmental roster in a weekly show usually broadcast out of Full Sail University in Florida. NXT also has quarterly 'Takeover' specials, usually broadcast the night before a big four PPV where major feuds and title matches are settled.

WWE Network’s other live show is 205 Live, which focuses on in-ring action from cruiserweight (under 205lbs) wrestlers.

There are also a number of network exclusive shows covering everything genre-wise from comedy (Camp WWE, The Edge & Christian Show) to reality TV (Drive Along, Holey Foley). From time to time, specific collections focusing on a particular wrestler, faction or feud will be made available.

In an archival sense, WWE makes its entire library of past Pay-Per-View events stretching all the way back to the first Wrestlemania available to watch. As time has passed it has also added the PPV libraries of one-time competitors WCW and ECW, and a number of smaller US promotions such as GFW and Smokey Mountain Wrestling. Selected archival TV broadcasts from some of these other brands are also available to watch on demand.

Which devices are compatible with WWE Network?

WWE Network is streamed over the Internet to a wide variety of devices. You can watch content on a browser on any PC or Mac, as well as via dedicated client apps for iOS and Android.

Apple TV is supported with a dedicated app for both the 3rd and 4th generation Apple TV, as well as Airplay from macOS and iOS devices. Google’s Chromecast is also supported.

There are also WWE Network client apps available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.

WWE Network is technically compatible with a range of Smart TVs from Samsung, Panasonic, LG and Sony, but the listed models are specifically US ones. We’re not aware of it being made available on the Australian models of those TVs. If you do own one of those models, you could always check to see if it’s available from the relevant Smart TV download store on your TV.

Roku’s set top boxes also support a WWE Network app. However, while it is at heart a Roku 2 box, the Telstra TV does not currently offer the WWE network app.
