Since Pay-Per-View seems to be on its last legs, WWE is now going forward with a complete vision on getting as many subscribers to the WWE Network as possible.
WWE needs about 1.3-1.4 million monthly subscribers worldwide to break even. Since there has been a numerous amount of budget cuts, including traveling and potentially catering, that number could drop some.
In order for WWE to make it back to a successful point, they would need about just under 2 million subscribers monthly. If this number can be reached, WWE will be in the best financial position they have ever been in.
For the future, WWE would like to have 850,000 subscribers by the end of this month. Given the push for the Network on every single show and loading up Pay-Per-Views recently, anything less would be somewhat of a failure in their eyes.
During WrestleMania XXX, the network reached 667,287 subscribers and they were banking on hitting at least 1 million by the year’s end.
