Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Yeah, everything's running perfect for me too. PS3 search feature isn't nearly as in depth as the iphone/ipad version, but everything is there if you know where to look. I've been going through old observers to make a list of 4+star matches I haven't seen before.

This is really awesome and consuming much of my free time now.

It was the power settings. Thanks for the help.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Now that everyone's had a week to play around with it, what are the features you'd like to see them add?

Here's my Wishlist:

- Watchlist/Queue
- Match listings for every event/show.
- Chapters so that you can jump ahead if a match sucks.
- Remember my place across multiple devices. So if I watch half a show on one device, I can resume it on another.
- Stars section, so that I can browse by wrestler. Wouldn't have to be every appearance. Just major matches and career highlights.

Related to chapters, I'd like a way to fast-forward while seeing what I'm skipping through. Like how things looks when I FF recorded shows on my DVR (the whole screen going fast) or the way Netflix shows it (showing smaller images at the bottom of the screen when particular time intervals).

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

it's been working pretty great for me too and I've pretty much had it on nonstop since last week. A real trip down memory lane and it may just get me somewhat interested in the current product. Which I know is their goal.

Off the top of my head all I want is more content.

1. "Prime Time Wrestling" shows
2. "Saturday Night Main Event" shows
3. Some of the Diva videos/shoots from the 90s.
4. "WCW Clash of the Champion" shows

A section for newly-added content. Some of the older stuff has been added, and its hard to remember what I've already watched.

I can watch Royal Rumble 2014 on my Kindle/Iphone/PC but cannot find it on Roku. Also only one of the Maple Leaf Garden shows are on the Roku but their are 2 different shows on my Iphone/Kindle/PC.

Is there a way to find the WWE/NXT Arrival PPV?

FYI- I have heard that if you plan on having a Mania party with several people over, it might be best to purchase it regularly. They would like for the app to work, but they cannot guarantee it for live PPVs just yet. If the NXT was any indicator, they have some kinks to iron out in the coming month.
Nothing major if you plan on watching it alone, but not worth the risk of having it crap out when many people are at your home and might start looking at you if everything freezes or goes blank.

It's under Shows > WWE NXT. It's the 5th episode (NXT ArRIVAL).

Well it's Monday and still not able to log in on the 360. I have faith that they'll get it working but frustrating paying for something that isn't fully functional.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Plan on watching the available PPVs in chronological order as I didn't start watching until the end of 1998. Some stuff I've seen already (Wrestlemania DVDs/Best Of's/Specific wrestler DVDs mainly) but not so much the other stuff. Especially WCW/ECW.

Halfway through Starrcade 83 now. Due to the Flair DVD, I've seen the main event but the rest of the card has been pretty entertaining. Orton/Slater vs. Youngblood/McDaniel was very entertaining I thought.

I've just been Wikiing the history to the matches so I have an idea of the feuds. Hopefully by the time I get to mid-late WCW/WWE/ECW, a good chunk of their weekly shows will be on there.

I know there's probably some clunker PPVs on the horizon but should be interesting to see the progression of the business in regards to production/wrestlers/wrestling style etc.

Been watching on Ipad/phone but apparently the 360 issue is finally fixed so it should be nice to watch it on a TV now.

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

Are some of these Old School Cards being condensed to fit an hour format?

Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

I read there was a new XBox update released so you should check for that to see if it solves your problem.

The Starrcade 1986 that is up is the 4 hour version that is an hour longer than the Turner Home Video version. I haven't checked out the other ones yet so I don't know which ones are shorter versions. The Old School cards have definitely been cut down.

Which WCW PPVs are condensed? I haven't seen any examples of this yet.

I haven't watched them myself, I saw it reported somewhere. If I can find it again I'll let you know.

I haven't gotten the network yet but I was actually there for that one and I remember it being almost four and a half hours so taking out the intermission that sounds like it's probably the entire card.

No Chi-Town Heat (Starcade 87) was up last time I checked and that was my favorite Starcade so that was kind of disappointing.

Starrcade 87 is on the Network and it looks like it might be the PPV version but I would need to check my DVD to see.

Something to ask you streamers ... any chance they have ECW (the real ECW - Heyman style not the WWE ECW we got a while back) shows and weekly broadcasts?

Would love to see those show in some sort of chronological order

Thanks...I saw it on my phone when I first signed up but didn't see it on my computer on Friday morning.

Edit: Nope, not there. Skips from Starrcade 86 to Bunkhous Stampede 88
