    If there are any Wrestling fans here, did you sign up (or at least attempt to) yesterday? And how has your experience been?

    There is already so many hours of old school wrestling on YouTube!

    For the $10 a month they're asking for it, can they finally start hiring some competent referees and possibly enact an instant replay challenge? A lot of this stuff just is way too fast and loose.:|
  4. I thought I was the only TB'er who watches.

    Unfortunately for me, the WWE Network is not available to Canada yet, as well as other countries. (They're saying 2015). Yesterday, there was a work around if you signed up through iTunes/Apple TV, but at some point overnight the app had been removed and customers refunded. Geo-block etched in stone. lol

    I've been reading different reviews online. It's working fine for some people and there is a great amount of material already available, with more to be eventually added. Others had literally waited hours to sign-up/logon. Once completed, I've heard the live streams function quite well but any downloads selected will take some time buffering. Unfortunately, I guess that means the current sign-ups are basically paying beta-testers.

    If I could sign up, I would. Monthly PPVs are at least $30-40 each. With a sign-up of 6 months, I would get more than my money's worth.
  5. Yesterday, they began excessively removing YouTube clips posted by other sources. I read a humorous report where their detection program accidentally deleted some of their own clips. Ha!

    Figures. I can see the logic in removing YouTube vids. I mean, we wouldn't want to take food out Vince's mouth and have him starve!

    It's tough to be a billionaire.
  8. Can't deny Mr. McMahon his steak drowned with ketchup. (If you've listened to any past interviews, they usually says it's his frequent meal at work.)

    First world problems. haha
