  • While not a fan of WWE, I find this idea quite a novelty. I’d love if other networks took this route too, and I don’t mean the big cable/broadcast ones. I’d love to get Boomerang, Comcast doesn’t provide it and I need a fixing of the old cartoons. :(

  • They have made some great partnerships for the network. I’m so glad they waited and took their time to launch to get things right. $60 is a steal. I would have paid more for just WrestleMania alone in HD. I just hope they can support everything and it doesn’t crash upon launch from all the traffic it will be getting.

    • Well, you would have, seeing as how Mania is now $70. I think it was that much last year as well.

  • So roughly $120 a year, which is a fraction of the cost if you wanted to buy every PPV a year, and you get oodles of extra content. And it’ll stream to several consoles as well as computers, meaning getting the content on your TV will be damn easy.

    Yeah traffic problems are the only real issue I see arising right now. Even if new content made for the Network sucks you’ve still got the PPVs and the classics.

    • I’m actually curious if they’ll let you go month to month after the initial 6 months. They didn’t really say anything about that.

      • It appears that the $9.95 price point per month is with a six month commitment. While that typically means the full six months is charged up front I don’t believe that is the case. I think they will charge your card on a recurring basis each month. That will probably be clearer closer to launch time.

  • I’ve been following this whole network thing for years and honestly didn’t think I had much interest in actually getting it (if it ever even became a reality). Including all PPVs for that 9.99 price point though has me seriously considering it. When I was young my friends and I would pool our and gather at one house for ALL of the PPVs, but I honestly haven’t ordered ANY of them in years due to the pricing. 9.99 though? I’d pay that much for JUST the PPVs. The rest of the content is merely icing on the cake.
