WWE Network officially launches on Monday at 9 AM EST. Dot com is hyping the historic day and offering a one-week free trial.
“Today is a historic day for WWE as we transform and reimagine how we deliver our premium live content and 24/7 programming directly to our fans around the world,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & Chief Executive Officer. “WWE Network will provide transformative growth for our company and unprecedented value for our fans.”
WWE Network is in collaboration with MLB Advanced Media.
“We applaud WWE for this bold, timely and strategic move to fully optimize the power and potential of live entertainment,” said Bob Bowman, President and CEO, MLBAM. “We are proud to work with WWE to help provide its millions of loyal fans with unencumbered access to distinctive and engaging live content across the devices they use most.”

February 24, 2014 8:15 AM EST Update: WWE Network is now available for purchase. The on-demand library is ready to go as I already have Wrestlemania 29 playing in the browser beside me. For some reason I had to create a new WWE.com account but it didn’t take long. End update.
February 24, 2014 8:29 AM EST Update: You can purchase gift subscriptions, however, they must be paid for the year in full at $119.88 (which is $9.99 for 12 months). My own subscription was only $9.99 but I had to consent to a 6-month re-bill. The gifts I bought were paid at the former price as that was the only option. End update.
