    I was very impressed by the WWE Network on my Apple TV last night. No real problems, other than the audio issues in the pre-show that corrected before the tag match, but that apparently affected everyone. Great litmus test overall for their platform.

      Yeah me to I watched it through the network on my ps4 from Ireland where it’s not even available yet and it streamed perfectly without one issue at all.

  • Cory Schneider

    I had the network pause a few times during the battle royalroyal and a few back skips on my PS3. But over all it worked pretty good. I didn’t miss anything and only finished about 7 minutes behind. I can put up with that for $9.99 vs $70

      It’s €25 over here to get the ppv over here that’s 3 months of the network paid for with a bit of change so it’s defo value for money. Plus staying up till 4 in the mornin over here the 7 minute lag doesn’t really make much difference.

    I know they are putting the positive spin on it, but there is no way they can be happy with that number. Not a disaster by any means, but not great either.

    From what I’ve heard the network pretty much ran flawless last night. If that’s the case, you can expect that number of subscribers to jump also, its gonna get a huge jump once its released in Canada, Europe, Australia and other places.

    I thought it was meant to be by the end of the year. Not a month
