While it's cool I can watch PROGRESS through the Microsoft Edge app on my Xbone, anyone else have issues with the quality being shit? It's so pixalleted and motion causes tears in the same places even when rewinding. I play the same video on my computer without these issues.

I've had that same issue streaming that app and haven't tried it since.

Well I guess it's good news that it isn't just me but it's a shame to know it's a problem at all that doesn't have a known fix at this time. I hope they make an app or something, I guess a big screen/surround system isn't needed for pro wrestling but it's still nice. My laptop screen is like a quarter the size of my TV.

Have you tried streaming anything else? Could be that the XBox doesn't have the hardware to stream in such a way, or the Pivotshare website may not play nicely with that particular browser. Do they still have a download speed cap? That could do it as well.

Had the same problem streaming through my tablet.

Cancelled my subscription in the end due to the poor quality especially with the Manchester shows.

Admittedly, no. Everything else these days seems to have an app. I know NJPW World doesn't work at all through the Edge browser and neither does Shudder but they bragged on Progress that their shows do. And yeah they play but the quality is so bad it's unwatchable.

Oh so you even had problems on your Tablet? I've not had any issues yet on my PC but on my Xbone it's bad. It's weird as well because it tears the same way in the same places no matter how many times you view it.

I just wanted to say that the WWE UK Tourny made me more interested in checking out PROGRESS than ever before. I will be getting a subscription soon.

Chapter 42 is out. What I wanted to see from it ended up being rather disappointing. End vs. Havoc only goes 5 minutes (which is fine considering End wrestled again later that day on a much bigger stage) & Riddle vs. Rampage had some good action but felt pretty one-sided by the end of it. The ending itself was anti-climactic too. Oh well.

After Night Two of WWE’s UK Championship turned out to be pretty good I decided to check out some Progress Wrestling via their Demand Service and while it has a host of problems and limitations which may explain the price tag, if the shows continue to be as good as the one I just watched, I can live with those warts.

The show I started with was the opening night of their Super 16 Strong Style Tournament, mostly because the card is absolutely stacked and I hear much further back than this is for PROGRESS diehards only as the wrestling and production qualities were pretty low at the start. I hear they have come a LONG way per episode but that there really is a world apart from the quality of these Chapters and the ones that kick it off. I do still kinda want to give it a go though as I hear they have made sure the stories told there still matter even today, which is nice and rare for a wrestling promotion. Especially a small indie like this.

Minus that now in hindsight truly heartbreaking opening with Kris Travis, I can’t think of a much better introduction to the company, I have fallen in love with PROGRESS on my first show. It’s basically the British PWG. Honestly up and down the card I think you’d be hard pressed to find a bad match and just as hard pressed to single out one match as a favourite, as such I’m not really left with a lot to say, in the best possible way.

I mean with work and my other hobbies I will admit it took me two weeks to get this show finished, coming in at nearly four hours but it’s absolutely crammed with content. Their matches are usually short and sweet so I could watch a match or two before bed or whatever. But yeah, the crowd are hot as fuck, some of the wrestling is a little scrappy in places but we’ve got technical matches, high flying matches, matt based matches, hard hitting matches, matches focused on storytelling/character/psychology or matches with a mix of all of those things with some genius match ups, some exposure to big indie guys who somehow flew under my radar and some guys who were made familiar to me in WWE wrestling under different gimmicks here while they still had that indie edge.

Now onwards to night two!

Don't want to bring any negativity to the PROGRESS thread, but I feel this needs to be seen.

Smallman would respond and show just how classy and awesome he is

Cornette is an absolute piece of shit and a disgrace to the wrestling business. Calling for someone to be murdered because you don't like the way they dress, you fucking cunt. He needs to shut the fuck and remember the golden rule "DON'T BE A DICK"

Definitely getting Chapter 44 tickets tonight.. My first Progress show.

Couple of questions for Progress-heads.. For 44 tonight, will it be standing and seated tickets, or standing only? For standing tickets, what do we think of the experience? I'd imagine it would be a good laugh being standing?

Secondly, does anyone know if Progress on demand has a download and watch offline feature.. Watching Progress on the way into work sounds perfect haha.

Don't think so otherwise I would have something to watch during long bus rides to and from work. Can't get it work on my phone

Anyone else manage to get tickets to Chapter 44 last night? First ticket buying experience with Progress and it was an absolute nightmare. Server crashed three times with tickets in basket trying to check out.. After 45 mins, managed to get two standing tickets.

To be fair, Progress' Twitter and Facebook seemed to be as confused as the fans, don't think they could access it to rectify the issue.

Was lucky enough to get tickets to Chapter 44 and Super Strong Style weekend over the last couple of weeks.. As 44 is my first Progress show, I was just wondering when they usually announce the card? Is it far in advance or right at the last minute?
