The only thing I've been able to watch so far is the first WrestleMania Rewind episode. Hopefully by the time this is finished, some of the PPVs I tried to access earlier will be working.

I was wondering about that. Do you still get the free week if you sign up today and pay?

There are two different links, one for the free trial, and one to pay now. You have to give a credit card either way, but if you sign up for the trial, your billing cycle is supposed to start next week.

Although I said I would wait until I got home from work, I went ahead and signed up this morning. I pulled up SummerSlam 1991, the first PPV I ever saw "live," and watched the first three matches (56 minutes) without a single problem with buffering or retrans, great quality, NO WWE BUG (!), awful ad for "TITAN'S HOT TICKET - HULK HOGAN: A REAL AMERICAN STORY" ("Coming this October, exclusively on Pay Per View!") intact, and I feel like I've already derived $9.99 out of pleasure from this free trial.

Your mileage may vary, of course.

CRZ, did they edit out any announcers saying "WWF," or is that an OK thing again now?

Got an answer regarding the hold on my account:


EDIT: To sum up, the problems today are the fault of MLB Advanced Media and "some banks."

I was hoping for longer consecutive runs of Raw and ECW Hardcore TV. PPVs are great and I guess that is what most people want to see but I also want to see the storylines in between. Not sure if I'm going to get this now but I'll play around with the free trial at least.

Also, first 3 PPVs I have tried have not worked.

Getting VOD to play on PS3 has been close to impossible but the livestream works fine. Just saw an ad graphic bumper for upcoming programming at the bottom that Daniel Bryan kicks off of the screen, amazing.

From what I've seen, WWF is intact, except in one really funny instance. Don't ask me why, but I started watching Survivor Series 1995 (Bret v Diesel). The show opened with the cheesy 1995-style video package...no editing of WWF during the voiceover, but the graphic said "WWE Championship".

Mania X-Seven has "My Way" intact.

I'm a subscriber as of 9:30 am est. My first pull up was WM XX to see the Main Event and what if any edit job they did. No disclaimer that I noticed, plus a full entrance and mentions for Benoit. There's been some lags and pauses in the stream, but considering it's the first day, I fully expected it.

I am now stuck with a great problem to have, so many choices and not knowing where to begin.

I'm a subscriber as of this morning as well. I did notice that search for WWE on Google Play that the official WWE app wasn't the first choice.

I haven't had a chance to test it out yet, but will when I get home.

PPVs finally seem to be streaming on PS3. WCW Capitol Combat 90 is my first show. Cos... Robocop (never seen the show but Flair/Luger in a cage and a couple of decent looking tag matches caught my interest... and Robocop).

Initial observations - for the first five minutes or so, the lag is pretty constant. After five minutes or so, it seems pretty stable.

If you stop watching a show and then go back to it, it doesn't remember where you were like Netflix does, and so forces you to fast forward to where you left off (assuming you can remember).

Anyone know when they're gonna stop offering the ability to sign up for a free week? If at all possible, I'd like to sign up on Saturday and then have two(ish) weekends to test out the service ...

The free week isn't tied to when you sign up. It's literally a free week starting from 9 AM this morning when they launched. If you don't sign up until Saturday, your free week will instead be a free day and a half.

After frustrating myself into a powernap trying to get this to work at 9 am. I woke up and finally set up the service. I've been watching it via my PS3. I'm mainly typing this now as the archive PPV streams have to buff and re-buff every so often.

The interface is very slick and manageable. It's very easy to find the program, ppv, or wrestler you are looking for either through search or browsing. It's actually easier to navigate than Sony's own PSN Store.

Not all content is available obviously, but the potential for growth for this app (once they establish more servers for stability) will kill all productivity for hardcore and older wrestling fans in the future.

The problems with streams cutting out sometimes are annoying but it's day one of several thousands if not millions of people trying to use the product. Anybody that thinks this is bad never tried to play GTA V Online last year on launch week!

Now back to the greatest six man stable rivalry in recent history....

Signed up this morning. I have had no problems on different laptops, except for one instance where the livestream just refused to load until I refreshed the page.

I share the account with a friend of mine and we were able to login at the same time on different computers, but I still can't confirm if we can both stream at the same time. I watched the opening seconds of TLC 2011 and it was working fine in glorious HD.
