Nope, but I'd assume based on the continuation of the free trial period, they have not hit the number they wanted

Yeah, I think this plays a part in it, I've just spoken with live chat and they did mention this, however the delay is huge (end of the year/early next year) so it seems like quite a while in that sense really.

Maybe, however they're going to do this to get more and more people anyway, whether they hit their target or not, judging by the sign up process and problems they had, could say otherwise, I'm not sure.

Watch this Rick Martel 'Hall Of Fame' nomination video including lots of facts and quotes from other WWE superstars all behind his long overdue induction.



Come on Vince .... it's time!

And the fact they're basically plugging it all over (obviously) is just a slap in the face to those who can't get it, but patience is a virtue as they say, I also want to watch this Legends House also.

My evening's set. The weakest nights seem to be Sunday and Monday (understandable that Monday would just be anything since they're figuring we're tuning in to Raw). I love the Tuesday and Wednesday night lineups. Great stuff.

Aah you're lucky, I can't wait until we have the network launched here in the UK

Random but, I was just talking to them on the chat again just now, I got the same person who I spoke to earlier and at the end of the chat I just asked her this :

Me: Quick question, how many people work there on the chat?
Michelle Corbe: I'm so sorry Sir but we're not allowed to disclose any information regarding the company since it's within our policy. Have a great day Sir.
Michelle Corbe has disconnected.

She answered my question and disconnected really quick lol

As I'm watching from the UK I don't tend to view stuff when they first air on the stream, but the upside is that there's now a new Countdown, Legends of Wrestling and Wrestlemania Rewind to catch up on tonight. Wednesdays are now officially my favourite day for the Network!

Re: Official WWE Network Discussion Thread

Seeing i cant reply on a reply that was in the old thread (we actually passed over 600 pages. ), will state it here, if some people have issues with the likes of Main Event and such, they really should air a Smackdown or Raw live, because i think they will get allot of views for Raw.


"Watch NXT, Lucha Underground, NJPW, become a fan of wrestling again!"

It couldn't have been that many who had issues with Main Event. A few on here and a couple on the network facebook page but that's it. Had it been like that first NXT show it would've been everywhere and WWE would've sent out a service advisory email. Last night was flawless for me throughout Main Event and complaints were minimal. I was just as confident after last night about Wrestlemania as I've been over the last couple of weeks. I've been lucky though. I never saw most of the issues many were seeing on launch week. The few I've had wound up dissipating.

They know about the concerns though. I saw this article on motleyfool dated on the 15th:


http://www.fool.com/investing/genera...stlemania.aspx


Quote:
NXT is small, Wrestlemania is huge

Being the first special on the network likely brought more viewers to a show featuring the largely unknown NXT brand, but that number is still small compared to the likely Wrestlemania audience.

"When it was over, I felt more uneasy than ever about WrestleMania, considering the network had technical issues trying to handle an audience that is likely to be minuscule in comparison," the Observer wrote.

Still NXT was the first live special and WWE was not only quick to apologize, it was quick to realize it needed more tests. Following the NXT glitches the company added a weekly live streaming of its Main Event program to the network. WWE also heavily promoted the live stream on its RAW and Smackdown shows. The company also offered fans better match-ups than usual on Main Event, likely to attempt to put as much stress on the network as possible in order to prepare for Wrestlemania.

WWE is taking steps to prepare

WWE seems to understand that ensuring a positive streaming experience to customers for Wrestlemania is critical to the long-term health of the network. In a statement sent to the Fool, the company detailed the steps it was taking for the April 6 special event.

"Notwithstanding the overwhelmingly positive response to WWE Network, we want to ensure subscribers have the highest-quality experience watching WrestleMania 30 and all our programming, and thus have put in place significant quality assurances," WWE said in an email. "These steps include increased capacity to handle high volumes of transactions, logins, and concurrent live streams, daily 'stress' testing of all systems over an extended period, and the addition of technology experts to review our plan and procedures. We're confident that we'll be ready on Sunday, April 6."

Same here, man. Wednesday's have become a great retro night on the network.
