Best things to watch on the network?

So, some people are having a paddy about the redesign and “missing” stuff and bugs etc. Clearly they didn’t see the madness of the Day 1 launch

Take 5 minutes to have a look around and you’ll find everything that was there before

Found the Hidden Gem section then?

It’ll show up, but it’s not there now.

What a proper fuck up this redesign is. So you can only browse WWE PPVs by title and not chronologically. That’s just basic.

What are you watching on?

Roku has it where on the Home screen press down 4 times and you should be on ‘Every WWE Pay-Per-View Ever’ and they’re in chronological order, or go to the ‘WWE PPV’, and literally the first thing it highlights is the most recent PPV, scroll right to go back in chronological order

It just looks like everything's a bit blown up on my screen, like someone pirated the Network menu in 1997 and sold it back to me. Shit.

I’m using an iPhone. Under WWE PPVs the sections are ‘Jump Into Extreme Rules’, ‘2019 PPVs’, ‘Current PPVs’, ‘Retired PPVs’, ‘PPV Related Shows’ and ‘Editor’s Choice’. The Current and Retired PPVs seems to be the main way they want you to explore the full archive and this is by PPV name. Who the fuck can remember the order of minor PPVs like Over The Limit, Fatal Four Way etc?!

I know it’s only a 2 min task to go to another website to get a chronological list of shows but it can’t be good business to drive people to go elsewhere.

Not seen on iPhone, but on Android, Roku and the website there's a filter button that's set by default to "All Shows" and "Most Recent". The first of these lets you look by specific show names (eg SummerSlam) and the second by year.

There's definitely some of the Hidden Gem videos up, but it looks like they might be putting it in new categories. The recent Crockett Cup 86 is up there and somebody supposedly saw a tag that suggest it will be in a "tournaments" section. Also the 1986 Great American Bash show are already (inaccurately) in the WCW PPVs 1986 section.

I take it all back, the app on LG Smart TVs is a disaster. All I’ve got is a Agree & Proceed Cookies box that I can’t do anything with and I can move a menu bar up and down, that’s it

The search option on Android finds most things that have gone walkies. I was looking for Clash of the Champions 5 earlier. Couldn't find it on the menus. 

The Network does seem to have made a habit of making me sign in everytime I try to watch something.

The best word I can think of to describe it is sloppy. Really feels like a shit beta test rather than an improvement on the previous one. The only thing I will say works better is the streaming which is kind of the core thing I wanted improved as on weak Asian networks it was difficult to watch things at certain times of the day. But apart from that it is a mess with icon positioning and finding things being the most difficult.

I was giving them the benefit of the doubt, waiting until the official transition was complete, and remembering what a shitshow the 2014 launch was. But when you see all the problems and bug listed out like this, it's pretty hard not to say it's been a major screwup:

Videos are playing fine for me, but I'm not a big fan of the new design, although that may just be getting used to it, and obviously there's quite a lot of stuff has vanished or you can only get to it by searching for it.

 

This is interesting:
