WWE’s very own streaming service, WWE Network, which launched several years ago, has gone through a flurry of changes in recent times. The entire UI was revamped a few months ago, for a smoother experience for the users.

It was reported some time ago that WWE is trying to introduce a multi-tiered version for the WWE Network, which will include content from independent promotions as well. It seems like WWE has partly introduced this system on the network, as users can now see ‘free’ content on the WWE Network.

This free content is a part of the rumored free tier on the network, and it largely consists of videos from WWE’s own YouTube channel. WWE co-president, George Barrios, talked about this multi-tiered system a few months ago and described the introduction of three different tiers for the WWE Network.

The free tier, which has been quietly launched by WWE, will feature recap videos, which can be also seen on WWE.com and Youtube. The standard tier will be the current paid model, and Premium will feature extra content along with providing benefits like free delivery on WWE orders among other things.

“We think there’s also an opportunity to super-serve our most passionate Network subscribers with a premium tier that’ll bring together more content for them, more features for them, and also integrating some of our other non-video services like our commerce — potentially integrating something like free shipping, bringing together our digital ticketing efforts in there. It becomes the one place to experience everything WWE.”

WWE Network currently hosts the monthly PPVs of WWE, and NXT episodes which air a day later than the broadcast on USA Network. The viewership of PPVs through the network hasn’t been astonishingly high, but WWE is still in much better shape than other companies selling PPVs at traditional prices.
