The WWE Network's free tier has officially arrived.
WWE announced the launch of the free tier today, hyping that "more than 15,000 action-packed WWE titles" are now available for free. That free content includes:
New shows including Raw Talk, streaming Monday nights each week immediately following Raw
Groundbreaking original series including Monday Night War, Ride Along, Table for 3, Photo Shoot and Story Time
Recent episodes of WWE’s flagship programs Monday Night Raw, Friday Night SmackDown and NXT
Select historical WWE pay-per-views and NXT TakeOver events
Weekly WWE highlights, Top 10, WWE’s The Bump, WWE Now, The Best of WWE and WWE Timeline
Raw Talk is making its return as part of the free tier. Charly Caruso and Samoa Joe will host the post-show following tonight's Raw.
“The launch of WWE Network’s Free Version is a key component of our company’s digitization strategy and a new way for all fans to be able to experience premium WWE content,” said Jayar Donlan, WWE Executive Vice President, Advanced Media. “As we continue to reimagine WWE Network’s offering, the Free Version will serve as an effective way to reach a broader group of consumers and allow them to experience the history and spectacle of WWE.”
An update on a potential VIP tier for the WWE Network wasn't mentioned. WWE said last July that they were planning on rolling out a tier system within the next 12 months, with the VIP tier coming several months after the launch of the free tier.
