No, it's about some app from the Microsoft store apparently. I didn't even know they had one until I looked it up

It's this thing lol.

Oh okay, why the hell would they even have a desktop app when you could just use a browser? thanks for clarifying it for me

Re: WWE Network Not Going to be using Certain Devices Anymore Starting 5/21

I got such a Samsung machine and that really freaks me out.
Shall I replace my pretty new TV stuff just for the Network? I am not watching that much TV anyway, but I don`t wanna watch a 7 hours PPV on a Laptop/Tablet.

Also I remember right now, that they want to redeploy the network, which will end in costing more money, if I understood that right. Would be interesting to know some more details about that upcoming change.

It is not like I couldn`t afford to buy new hardware just for the network, but I don`t watch so much network beside the PPVs. I am not into watching Orton`s wife having dinner with Angle`s wife or Total Divas etc. etc. Also I don`t like these loud gaming consoles or whatever I will need there.

I am not sure what I will do about that. At the moment I guess I will wait until it stops working and cancel the subscription. We will see.

Im also affected by this. I have a x box one, ps3 and laptop. I use my ps3 for my entertainment aps. X box one heats up a lot so only use it for gaming. I thought of 2 work arounds. You can connect your phone via micro usb to hdmi cable. Pretty sure you can buy them on Amazon. Another option is buy a 12 foot Hdmi and connect it to the laptop. There is a setting on windows by right clicking that allows the Tv to show entertainment and you can still browse and visit the forums while full screen on a laptop. I tried this a few times while gaming or streaming tv shows . It works well.

I had been using my PS3 for watching, but it had started to freeze and constantly say "error" when I used it. So had to start using my PS4, so I guess Im ok, but sucks for the people that are using the things mentioned.

Re: WWE Network Not Going to be using Certain Devices Anymore Starting 5/21

I'm on the same boat as the OP, I'm not sure whether the Smart TV I got is an earlier model before 2016. Only way to find out is if it doesn't work on 5/21. In that case I'll be deleting the app.

I do have a phone and laptop but I'd prefer seeing it on the big screen.

Anybody who might have to use a laptop for their Network, get a HDMI cable and connect the laptop to a TV and watch it that way. That's what I've done since I got it.

Oh you mean it is JUST the app and not the network all together. God I hope that is the case because otherwise no wwe network for me.

They better not be removing this from my Samsung smart TV. It's the main reason I watch it. It's so much easier just hitting the apps button on my TV.
