I'm thinking of ordering the Royal Rumble webcast, but the only issue preventing me from doing so is that I can't tell how big the video will appear. I've watched Velocity and Five Questions with the Champ, and they always pop up in a tiny box in that pop-up window, and looking over the WWE technical FAQ, it looks like there's a bigger window that displays the paid content. Is that correct? Cuz I wouldn't mind shelling out $35 for full screen (or nearly full screen) action, but not if its going to be limited in that two inch by three inch box or whatever. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

They pop up for me in the Windows Media Player and are good quality if you have dsl or some good connection. I've ordered 5 or 6 over the lasr year to year and a half and have been satisfied.

When you order a PPV Webcast, it comes up and plays in Windows Media Player. Once that's open, you can double-click it to maximize it and make it take up the whole monitor. The quality's not as good as a TV screen, but it's good all things considered.

Before I went broke this was the ONLY way for me to get a PPV at my house. After they upgraded to the 500K live feed it became worth it. It is near TV quality and very little pixelzation.

Awesome. I will definitely get this without any reservations. I have an S-Video cable set up to output to my TV, so I'm hoping that aside from the audio coming out the speakers there won't be much difference as compared to ordering this through the cable company. (which I can't do since I lack a cable box.) Thanks for the input!
