The WWE Network was supposed to be launched in the UK today at 8PM GMT. Just 20 minutes before the announced time, at 7.39PM GMT the long-awaited launch was delayed yet again. The WWE posted the following on twitter:
The fans’ reaction was as bad as it could have been expected. Here are a few examples:
I have to say that, knowing that the WWE Network isn’t proving to be as profitable as expected, this botched launch is not going to do the company any favours.
The WWE Network has been struggling to hit 1, 000, 000 subscribers. The WWE registered a third-quarter loss of $5.9million. Offering November for free is a desperate advertising campaign, meant to save the WWE Network’s future. It’s disgraceful that the execution of it has been so poor, knowing that the UK is the home of one of the largest WWE communities in the world.
