WWE Network First Impressions: Not Ready For Prime Time

RPad.TV gives its first impressions of WWE Network. While the site liked the initial content, it was unimpressed with the performance. It feels like a beta product that was pushed live too soon. (TV, WWE Network)

I got the WWE Network day 1 one and it's been hit and miss. The 24 hour stream that functions as a channel works almost flawlessly. It loads in about 3 seconds and very very rarely has a error or a timeout. The on Demand section however is still impossible to watch. Day one I could not even get a video to load now they load and will play about 5-10 mins and then timeout.

While it's annoying the on demand stuff isn't working well it's nice the main stream is as that will be where the pay per views like Wrestlemania will air live and if that is running smooth then that is great.

Also I noticed a mention of swearing here and how it was edited. WWE had released a statement not long ago that said they would not be editing that so my only guess is that the stuff that was bleeped when the content was made is bleeped because it was at the time. That said I have no gotten the time to watch a ton of the older stuff to see if this is the case.

I can confirmed that none of the media is edited. You can confirmed this by viewing the Payperview "Bad Blood" which featured the first Hell in Cell match with Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels.

During the match Undertaker and Shawn end up on the top of the cell. Shawn Michaels is profusely bleeding from a head wound and gets some on the camera below. As the blood drips on the the camera lens you clearly hear the camera man say "Ahhh shit!" and moves away from the dripping blood.

So far I'm enjoying the WWE App very much on the Ps3. It's still kinda of buggy, but I'm sure they're ironing out the bugs before Wrestlemania arrives. The app is well worth the price of admission.
