Re: The Official WWE Network Thread

All the devices the Network is on have a Schedule section but without knowing how you are viewing it it's hard to direct you where to look. On my PC & my Roku it's on the first page but on my Kindle & Iphone you have to go into the Network section to find it and it's the top option.

Thursday & Friday night from 6 to 8 the Network will be airing live footage from WWE Axxess. Also on Friday night at 10PM they will are a special Legends of Wrestling roundtable with different Wrestlemania legends discussing their greatest Mania moments.

Note: This is for the PC version - may be different if you access WWE Network on another device.

When you bring up the WWE Network screen - click on schedule located on the top of the page. It then goes to another page which has the current schedule where you can scroll down the schedule to see what programs are coming up by click on the down arrow button located on the bottom of the page. You can also click on the next days schedule or jump to a date by clicking on the "jump to date" calendar located on the top of that page. Note: The schedule only goes like five days in advance.

Websites like ProWrestling.net, PWTorch.com and PWInsider.com also post each days schedule on their sites.

Speaking of schedules - looks like no Wrestlemania Post-Game Show - they are showing a sneak peek of the newest WWE Countdown - Infamous Gimmicks - from 11:00 pm ET to 12:00 am ET. (Thought I read they will be having post-game shows after each "PPV". Guess not. Weird having a two hour pre-game show and then not have at least a half-hour post-game show.)

New Special - Journey To Wrestlemania - Follow a WWE Superstar behind the scenes on his journey to Wrestlemania.
Premieres - Tuesday, April 8 - 9:00 pm ET to 9:30 pm ET.
Wonder what wrestler they will be following? Does this special replace Wrestlemania Rewind that week? - they didn't promote one for next week after the Triple H vs Jericho WM18 one aired last night. Or maybe Wrestlemania Rewind is on from 9:30 pm ET to 10:30 pm ET and then we get a repeat of Journey To Wrestlemania from 10:30 pm to 11:00 pm ET? Schedule on the WWE Network site doesn't list whats on for that day yet - should be made available sometime on Thursday. Got the above info from a "Wrestlemania Week Programs on WWE Network" article.

Looks like they just added 8 ECW Hardcore TV shows to their Vault section. Need to find time too watch them.
I wish they had a checklist/and or wishlist feature so I could see what I've watched and stuff that I want too watch.

They have chapter breaks(like blu-rays and dvds) so it's not hard too find if you stopped at the end of a match.

I just discovered this channel today. I can't believe I'll be able to watch WrestleMania on my Roku, and the channel is a great price, only $10 a month.

Thanks for the reply. I'm on a roku, and I did end up finding it thanks. I don't like how they do the schedule on the Roku. I would rather see a grid, like in a TVGuide. I will checdk out the website and see if that may be different.

As I stated above, I'm on a roku, but dont liek how they handle the schedule on there. So I will check out the WWE site, and the other links you posted to see if they handle the schedule in a more grid like manner.
Thanks for the reply.

The live 'Legends of Wrestlemania' ,wow.

Flair getting choked up over his retirement match...got a little dusty in my living room.

The only problem with it so far is that Cole is such a shill for the product that he won't just let the conversation develop long enough.

It's still been a great watch.

360 was a bit laggy/glitchy for me during HOF, which gives me great pause for tomorrow. Contemplating just ordering the PPV to be safe...ugh. Not sure

Update: Looks like the new special - Journey To Wrestlemania - replaces Wrestlemania Rewind this week - at least. (The schedule for Tuesday, April 15 isn't up yet.) It premieres from 9:00 pm to 9:30 pm ET with a replay showing from 9:30 pm ET to 10:00 pm ET. (Unless they decide to follow another wrestler? would be cool if one show followed a "Face" wrestler and the other show followed a "Heel" wrestler.) No mention of who they followed yet - hopefully someone interesting.

I planned on watching the replay of the Hall Of Fame Ceremony at 12:00 am ET but saw from a report on a wrestling website that it was running long (Razor, Colon and Warrior haven't yet spoken) so I joined it LIVE around 11:00 pm ET. Unfortunately, my feed was terrible - very choppy - film like - so I had to stop watching. Like someone did here, I went to the schedule and clicked on watch from the beginning, went ahead a bit - start of Trishs intro for Lita - and everything was fine. Wonder if my friends and I will have to do the same thing tonight - watch Wrestlemania XXX on a slight delay.

I had the same problem on my Roku, so much that I gave up. I never thought to watch it from the beginning.

Honestly fuck Flair. He's a big fake if you ask me. The fact that he went to TNA after WWE gave him that great sendoff at Wrestlemania XXIV really kind of soured my opinion on him.

The video was looking crappy on my Roku. Switched over to the AppleTV and it looks much better.

I'm kinda surprised the stream worked so perfectly for WMXXX. The confetti shower at the end was a blocky mess. But other than that, the rest of the show looked great.

I wish it was 5.1 audio.

I just signed up yesterday, was on the fence, wasn't sure about how the quality was. Suprisingly no issues what so ever using the Apple TV for Wrestlemania.

At one point he owed $20,000 a month in alimony payments alone. Flair cannot stop getting married! I can't blame him for needing to work when he has such great debt each month.

No issues at all on my PS3 other than some audio distortion during the preshow. Very happy.
