Have you watched a lot of the on-demand stuff?

Hey, then again maybe the network will fix itself when all the trial people cancel next week. Who knows!

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Decided to try the search again with my ipad. Vader time! First thing that came up was a strap match vs hogan in wcw. Could be amusing so I went with it and it started playing right away! Only to stop completely after 90 seconds.

I'm sure they will get it running smoothly but I'm still having a lot of problems. Can't get any video to play on my computer. Oh well, once it works it's going to be awesome. The search feature looks so cool. Page after page of matches with anyone you want. Looked at terry gordy, rick rude, ric flair, terry funk. This will rule.

I called the customer service number, it sounds like they outsourced the calls to India, and the woman said the $9.99 charge would drop off in a week and then they would put through the $9.99 charge for the first month. She said the first charges were just to make sure the credit card was valid and would go through. I wasn't happy about it but the combination of her being hard to understand and the quality of the connection made me not want to argue with her. It also sounded like she kept reading from a script no matter what I asked her.

Tajiri vs super crazy search is great! until a nonstop buffer at 9 minutes during their first match.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

I can load almost any event I try, but once I try to skip ahead/fast forward, the events all freeze up.

Live channel still working flawlessly. I highly recommend everyone watch Cesaro/Zayn from NXT. Wow.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Videos are now working on my Desktop PC and our Kindle WWE app finally got updated so everything seems to be working now.

Starting with the Wrestling Classic from 1985, one of the very first wrestling VHS tapes I ever got back in 1985/1986, and planning on working my way through every PPV up to 2014. I already have every WWF/WWE, NWA/WCW, and ECW PPV on DVD but it just more convenient to stream them then to put a disc in for every PPV. If you haven't seen the Wrestling Classic it's very good, especially the Dynamite Kid vs. Randy Savage match.

Are you able to fast forward and skip chapters?

Quite a bit. I watched Vengeance 2002 and SummerSlam 2002 on Monday. One Night Stand 2005, and Fully Loaded 2000 yesterday. It took about two minutes to start each time, but no lagging during.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Any rumors of other sports or entertainment groups that are thinking of starting up something like the WWE Network?

I would love to see the NFL make their NFL Film Library available. I went to the NFL Films website and doesn't look like it's active. The NFL Network is 100 percent useless.

This was working for a bit earlier but it's back to being unusable again. Frustrating because when it works, its great.

Same here. It was good while it lasted.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Mine is still hit-or-miss, but mostly still streaming fine. A few stops here and there, but alright.

I'm currently listening to the joy that was King of the Ring 1994, with Art Donovan doing "color". I had totally forgotten about this, and it's magic.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Streaming is working for me now on my PS4. I can fast forward through videos without the app freezing up.

I was watching a MSG show from 4-6-1981 with Stan Hansen vs.Bob Backlund and some matches listed aren't on there.

No Mil Mascaras vs. Moondog King or Dominic Denucci vs. Killer Khan and a couple others.

So according to the network, in 2 years I will have a 7 year old son who likes John Cena. I better get started on that.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Still can't watch any archived videos without them resulting in getting booted with an error screen. The live feed works fine though.

The Wrestlemania 1 main event might actually be worse than the upcoming Batista vs Orton match. I remember watching as a child, but it wasn't quite as good as I remembered. This Network may ruin all of my childhood memories.

I haven't checked that one out yet, but are you sure that they're not just missing chapters for those matches? I've noticed that quite a few are missing in some events.

Doubt it, the fans were actually into the match and while in hindsight Mr. T in a main event is a joke, at the time he brought in plenty of fans along with Lauper.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

While Raw and SmackDown are subject to a 30-day delay before they can join the network, Main Event is not subject to that restriction. Last night's Main Event will air on the Network at 6:30PM Eastern today, leading into the pre-show for NXT ArRIVAL.
