WWE Exec Speaks on Network Expectations

WWE's Executive Vice President of Digital Media, Perkins Miller, recently spoke with Cynopsis Sports, and had the following to say regarding expectations for the new WWE Network:

"We are looking at a lot of demand across our social platforms. The last time I looked, our network Facebook page had around 2 million likes on it. We've had a tremendous amount of demand in the media. In fact, at CES, in spite of all the announcements from Yahoo, Sony, etc., a study showed that WWE Network had the greatest impact by a factor of two, compared to any other announcement coming out of CES. So we feel that we've got a lot of excitement around our launch. If you look at the way our fans buy right now, we have anywhere from 800,000 to a million fans buy our PPVs on any given year, so our estimate right now is that by the end of this year, we could get to around a million subscribers. Our goal, over time, is that this model across the country could attract between two and four million subscribers."
