have released their latest set of financials, including
a significant update on their latest Network aka 'over
the top' subscription count.
per the report, subscribers increased to an average
of 1.52 million over 2017's third quarter. This can
be broken down to 1.11 million U.S. and 400,000 international,
and represents a 4% increase on their Quarter 3 2016
total count has dipped from the previous quarter,
with WWE reporting 1.63 million paid subscribers back
in July. This shouldn't be surprising, though: WrestleMania
falls within Q2, and the numbers always spike as viewers
sign up for the showcase event, giving the average
figure a lift.
firm, as per usual, have failed to provide a breakdown
of free vs. paid subscribers, but given how liberal
they are in offering free access periods to lapsed
customers, it's probably a safe bet to assume that
the true subscription count is considerably higher.
previous breakdown came in their post-WrestleMania
33 conference call, when they reported 1.959 million
total subscribers, with 1.661 million of those paid.
expect the paid subscription count to fall to 1.47
million in Q4, and project an average of 1.53 million
for the full year, representing an 8% growth on 2016.
