There has been a lot of talk about raising the price of the WWE Network. While Netflix increasing some of their prices by $1 is worth watching in regards to the WWE Network. If WWE went with a $1 increase, it would bring in $7 million or more per year.
As most of you know Netflix and Amazon have both raised prices recently, WWE and UFC kept their prices at $9.99 just because Netflix had already set the value of streaming services with their low price point.
WWE will eventually raise prices and the majority of fans (including me) will pay for it. WWE knows it and really it is just a matter of time. Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
