In what could be one of the biggest clearances for the WWE Network, WWE today announced that the WWE Network will be available in India starting Monday for $9.99 per month and it will work on desktop, laptop, and mobile devices.
The deal is the same such as the one offered in the United States and most of the countries that get the WWE Network however the 12 monthly pay-per-views will not air live on the Network in India, but rather 24 hours after they are broadcast in India with the current provider. The pay-per-views will switch to live broadcast on the Network beginning in 2017.
“India is a strategically important market for WWE and we are thrilled to make WWE Network available to our fans there,” said George Barrios, WWE Chief Strategy & Financial Officer. “The global expansion of WWE Network is a key driver in our commitment to growing the WWE brand internationally.”
WWE Network will be made available on additional devices, including Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Sony PlayStation 3, Sony PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Roku and Smart TVs prior to Survivor Series on Sunday, November 22.
Other countries in the Indian subcontinent including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal will also get the WWE Network starting Monday. The first month for new signups in India will be free of charge.
