In addition to the classic matches you get with buying a PPV over the web, now WWE has the Match Jukebox. Here, they have 20 historical matches which all happened in the current month. You can buy a yearly subscription to the jukebox, you can buy the whole month, or even just buy a single match. Although, since buying the month is only $3.95 and a single match is $1.49, I don't know why you wouldn't just spend the extra 2 and a half bucks for all 20 matches. Kind of interesting, like the WWE 24/7 thing. Does anyone know when that's supposed to start up?

Okay, that's REALLY fucking cool. 35 bucks ain't bad to get a ton of matches each month. Even though some are down right horrifyingly bad (DDP & Jay Leno v. Hogan & Bischoff, Sting & Cat v. Muta & Vampiro), it overall looks to be a pretty good deal. I think I might sign up for this.

This sounds like a tremendous service. Notice how they're showing very little WWE/WWF footage proportionately? Guess they're saving some of that for later...

In any event, the match description I found the funniest was from the Hulk Hogan/Andre match circa 1980:

"Many people donít realize that Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant actually squared off before their WrestleMania III classic."

Could that be because... you TOLD fans in 1987 that it would be their first encounter? Geez, guys, you can't have it both ways....

I think this might be the usual issues with the Old (and now disallowed) Scratch WWF logo.

Not that they won't show them eventually, but since they're starting off and getting things set, they're probably saving some money by not worrying about blurring out logos.

No word on a start date on 24/7, but they are moving on it.

I bought it.

The quality is a little choppy, but honestly, when I haven't seen like half these matches I don't particularly care.

I was speaking to the folks at Rogers today, and they were telling me their VOD service for cable has been delayed (they were supposed to launch in mid-July), HOWEVER when it does we'll have access to over 500 movies at once. Included will be WWF footage, as was previously reported at various news spots.

I'm going to be a really easy target for these VOD people....

This is without a doubt the best service ever offered!

I am drooling over the prospects of seeing classic Four Horseman, nWo, and DX matches all at the same sitting. Watching Magnum TA, Rock'n'Roll Express, ECW classics, and WWF cartoon era (Hogan era) matches, this is a long time fans dream.

History is repeating itself, and it is only $3.95/mth.

Pretty good, even though I've got most of those on tape. Too bad you can't save them on your hard drive. The hell's the point of buying one match for 1.49?
...and of course no scratch logo footage. Good lord I get pissed about this more and more everyday and I don't know why.

I don't know why either. We've all seen THAT footage a zillion times over. Give me the old stuff!

Bought and done. I did it mostly for the ECW matches. I have seen most of these, but I certainly don't have these on tape. I do like the diversity here though, and this could be a great precursor to the 24/7 deal.

And like Cfgb, I will once again be fleeced by WWF and I will like it.

I ended up getting a one-month subscription. Like cfgb said, the video is pretty choppy. However, for only 4 bucks, I can't complain. Good stuff. It'll be nice to see what matches they put on this thing in the months to come.
