WWE Network technical issues thread

Recommended Posts

I finally cancelled by subscription for the first time since April 2015. I have no problem paying for it, but not if it doesn't work. When the dodgy streams I can find are giving me a better picture and sound quality than the £9.99 service (which was incredible value before the update) then there is a problem. 

Since I have never cancelled before I found it incredibly strange that they don't ask you why you are cancelling or try to convince you to stay. I'll sign back up again for sure, but I'll give it time until I think all the bugs are fixed from this shit new update, which could be a while.

I echo the above sentiments that the network is a bargain when working but when simple things like an inability to fast forward properly or have streams actual work are so problematic it renders it worthless.

There are numerous alternative means to watch the same content in better quality, with better convenience and without any issues, for free.

Since the update the app is no longer supported on my smart TV meaning I can either watch on a tablet or through my PS4.

Today I had to watch Crown Jewel with the Saudi commentary as the english language one wasn't working.

Incredible for a company of their size to make changes to an app that worked perfectly fine which have produced no benefit, countless issues and are still yet to be addressed months on.

I had this when trying to watch on PS4 this morning. Managed to get English commentary watching on a Roku instead, which so far has been the best option to watch on since the redesign

I couldn't watch on PS4 this morning, just kept freezing at the start and even when I skipped ahead it just buffered, every other show was working fine.

Worked fine on my phone though so had to watch it on there instead 

The commentary did randomly change to German before the main event tho even tho the settings were still showing English and even when I changed it to a different language it stayed on German, had to exit it and play again and it was back to English again, very strange

I watch the Network mainly on Roku and in most instances it is stable. I do however now and again receive a message about an "invalid token" on some videos which causes the app to close and reset.

Admittedly, I only really watch the classic content so unsure if the issues people seem to have is with the live streams etc.  

Echo other members statements about how poor the app seemingly is. Considering the size and worth of the company it is showcasing, it really should be better.

They parted ways with the company that used to do the technology for them. I’m not sure if it’s come out why that was, but presumably the new mob they’ve got doing it are the ones who said the app needed to be updated to work only with newer devices, and they’ve not got the know-how to do it as well as the last lot.

I forgot I’d resubscribed, but went on to watch Crown Jewel last night around the time it finished. Clicked “watch from beginning” and it went straight to an image spoiling the main event. So I watched an illegal stream instead, because that seems more reliable.

They were with MLB network from the launch - at the time, known as the best in the game. I remember reading it was silly expensive to have them maintain the network.

I wouldn't be surprised if they've been offered a better cut of it all with a good company. However, I very much doubt MLB have fallen so far behind, given they were applauded for their constant ideas and implementations of them.

I finally managed to watch Crown Jewell but show kept freezing, started at the end of the show spoiling the end and reset to the start after the app crashed halfway through. I would expect this from the video game but not the network.

Great, now the PS4 app won’t let me sign in. I can highlight the option to sign in, but it just keeps going back to something else. 

I’m down to being able to watch on either Roku or iPhone now

Got sick of the Xbox One App constantly buffering so picked up an Amazon Firestick 4K via a Black Friday deal for ÂŁ30 (think the HD one was ÂŁ20). The Network hasn't buffered for me once using the Firestick. Far better.
