WWE Network set for January 19th launch in Britain

Published 7 Comments

British WWE fans have received more news that they will have waited a long time for and that is.... that the WWE Network is coming to the United Kingdom.

The WWE website has officially revealed that the Network will officially be landing in Britain on January 19th.

Just in time to purchase it for the Royal Rumble and the Road to WrestleMania, the British WWE fans will be happy if a little cautious at this news.

The network is being advertised at £9.99 and €12.99 in Northern Ireland so the WWE fans will finally be able to see what they've wanted for almost a year.

Since the Network was launched prior to WrestleMania XXX it has been released in 170 countries worldwide and unlike its initial launch, there is now no commitment to keep it on.


This isn't the first time that the Network has been promised to WWE fans and then the official launch gets pulled at the last second.

It has in fact happened twice already since the Network crossed the border of the USA and Britain remains currently the biggest fan base without the network.

In the official announcement on wwe.com, it says

"WWE Network will be directly available on Web, iOS and Android devices, gaming consoles, Smart TVs and digital media players." - WWE announcement on the Network

The official announcement from the company also comes with a handy video from Vince McMahon.

The Chairman claims that the Network will be launched on the 19th and in his own words, "This time we mean it".

British fans will surely be cautious around the announcement as they have seen the launch being postponed twice in Britain.


There has been a lot of outrage amongst WWE fans in Britain since its continuous postponement.

With fans during April's and November's UK tour chanting 'Where's our network' and the WWE haven't helped themselves.

Hosting the United States Championship match in which Rusev defeated Sheamus exclusively on the Network sparked outrage amongst British fans - a moment they haven't since repeated.

Another postponement of the Network could see many British fans cut the final ties with the company so if they are announcing it again, it would be best for business that they mean it.
