    I just thought I'd start a thread to discuss the WWE Network and decided to add a poll on who's interested in it.

    I'm quite interested in it, but what Australian involvement have they pledged? As most of these things are locked to the US only.

    Regarding the WWE network, I'm pretty confident you can do a workaround by making a US playstation account and watching it via ps3/4.

    I Jizzed lol! Seriously though, I never expected anything this good!! Every past WWE,WCW and ECW PPV and every current WWE PPV for only $9.99 (Not Australian price, but I guess it'll be close to it). Also every past RAW and Smackdown episode on demand!!! I'm hoping they also have every Nitro episode on demand as well. On top of that we get all the great territorial wrestling from the 60s 70s etc.... If you consider yourself a wrestling fan, then you wouldn't even hesitate in subscribing to the WWE network!! EPIC!!!! :D

    Does anyone know any good unlimited internet provider??
    I currently have 200GB per month plan and that wouldn't be enough for when I get the network!! After all each past PPV download would be about 1.5GB!

    Problem is, all providers in Australia that provide an "unlimited" service all offer a crappy quality of service too.

    Anyway, IMO, the WWE Network is a decent idea, but they need to go the whole hog IMO (make their own cable channel, have one location to watch all their shows, and have full control over all their content) for it to really work. The only problem is that that pretty much rules out the casual fan though.

    Suprised it has taken them so long to do something other than sporadic DVD releases with that massive tape library they have though.

    Agree. All the providers here in Aus that offer unlimited deals are shit! It's really annoying.

    I'm around the same with Steam downloads, NBA league pass and other things. God knows how I'd fit WWE Network in as well.

    Thankful that we're upgrading to 500GB cable early next week. About $20 more expensive than our old 200GB ADSL2+ plan (but it has speed boost as well which is $20 per month in and of itself). Should be fine after that. If the quality of their PPV streams are decent enough we wont need to purchase PPVs from Main Event so the monthly subscription will actually save us money.

    Yeah I'm thinking of upgrading to a 500GB plan soon as well. Although I doubt ever 500GB is enough for the WWE Network!

    Good news - everything will be uncensored. There will be parental locks for parents that don't want their kids watching MA 15+ content!!! Chair shots, bra and panty matches, blood, hardcore and CHRIS ******* BENIOT!!! :D

    Also I'm wondering if they'll have Over the Edge 1999?? I know they said every PPV, but I have my doubts that they'll include this one. If you don't know already, WWE never released Over the Edge 1999 on VHS due to the death of Owen Hart.

    Every show featuring Chris Benoit will come with a warning before the show begins.

    As far as OTE 1999 goes, I sincerely doubt it. I think what they're implying is every PPV the companies (WWF/E, WCW and ECW) released will be on the service.

    Yep I heard about that 'Chris Beniot warning'. Not a problem since it'll only takes 3 seconds or so! It really is unnecessary IMO. If they were promoting him, then that would be completely different, but they're using him for historical purposes so really a warning before the show is unnecessary!

    seems like we'll be in a better position when the network is launched here, as more content will have been rolled out. slow rollout (plus they would still have to convert a LOT of footage you would think)

    WWE PPV's in the US are $45. Apparently WWE get only $10 from that $45. So really WWE would be making a huge profit from the network. Think about it! WWE get around 200k for each of the 'B' PPV's but with the Network I'm positive that they'll get around 500k + subscribers!

    I agree, but the WWE are trying to protect their ass. If they didn't, there would be such an outrage in the media.

    Don't blame them, blame people just looking for something to complain about.

    Luckily I have unlimited downloads and meters from the local ISP exchange. So whats the idea along the PS3/4 American Accounts, you can access them via there?

    Also when will this be released in the US? I saw someone say late 14/15 but is that for Australia or US as well?

    US Cable providers must run Ethihad. ;)

    Sounds good though, assume its going to be slightly more expensive here (if NBA League pass is a guide).

    Progressive move. Proxies FTW too.
