WWE Network Goes Global and On New Devices
As well as just launching in more than 170 countries, the WWE Network is also now available on Sony internet connected TVs, Blu-ray Disc players and Blu-ray Home Theater systems. By this Friday, it will also be available on Samsung Smart TV devices.
The $19.99 monthly commitment has now been reduced to $12.99.
The U.S. English language version of WWE Network is available starting today, on an over-the-top basis, in more than 170 countries and territories, including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, Spain, and the Nordics, among others. The network is expected to be live in the U.K. by this October and plans for the network in Italy, UAE, Germany, Japan, India, China, Thailand and Malaysia will be communicated at a later date.
For $9.99 (U.S. dollars) per month with a six month commitment, fans will have access to 24/7 programming, all 12 live WWE pay-per-view events, and the most comprehensive video-on-demand library. In addition, subscribers can now choose a monthly offering at $12.99 (U.S. dollars) with no commitment and the ability to cancel at any time. The $12.99 price point is a change from the previously announced $19.99 monthly plan and allows WWE to offer an option with no commitment that we believe better reflects the variety of economies that exist internationally.
Like other digital subscription services, such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, fans are able to subscribe online by going to WWE.com and clicking on the WWE Network button on the top right corner of the navigation bar. Throughout the day, WWE Network will be made available internationally across all platforms including web, mobile, gaming consoles and connected devices.

Weird Al and Flo Rida Wish Hulk Happy Birthday
WWE have compiled a video of various celebrities wishing Hulk Hogan a happy birthday:
Here’s an off air photo from the birthday segment with Vince McMahon:
Jim Ross blogged:
The birthday party for Hogan tied together well with Lesnar vs. Cena at Summer Slam. This should be a great show Sunday if the matches have the time to tell viable stories. However, when in LA the WWE generally goes “Hollywood” and I’d expect this Sunday to be much of the same. That’s cool but give me my wrestling.
