It is official: The WWE Network has gone global.

The WWE finally made the WWE Network available to fans outside of the United States Tuesday. The company announced that the English language version of the network is now available in “more than 170 countries and territories, including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, Spain and the Nordics, among others.”

The WWE also unveiled another change to its pricing format for the network. The network is still available for $9.99 with a six-month commitment, but for those who wish to pay on a month-by-month basis, the network is now available for $12.99, down from $19.99, which was what the company announced during its quarterly conference call July 31.

According to the WWE, the change in price “better reflects the variety of economics that exist internationally.”

Beginning Wednesday, the network will be available on Sony Internet connected televisions, Blu-ray Disc players and Blu-ray Home Theater systems. By Friday, it will be available on Samsung Smart TV devices, Blu-ray Players and Home Theater systems.
