Been watching from the start of NWO with the powerbombing Bischoff off the ramp onto the table and and currently up to Starrcade '97.

Final Roku note (...for now): mine does not have chapter breaks, so when attempting to watch, say, the 2000 Royal Rumble, I'm forced to fast forward through the rest of the event.


Related: RR2000 is not so great!

I'm using Roku 2.  I still think video is not great, but may be more wi fi than anything else.  I may end up running a LAN connection.
 
Chapters would be great, but FF does work pretty good.

Crystal clear stream of live Main Event right now.  On the other hand, NXT Arrival streamed great for me, so I was not one of the unlucky ones who had long interruptions.

The quality is fluctuating a little bit, but that could be on my end for bandwidth. It's staying live pretty well.

I froze during the New Age Outlaws entrance, but a refresh cleared it up.

Picture quality dipped briefly for a few seconds at the finish of the Bellas match.  Otherwise, looks good.

It's nice to see The Outlaws remembering that they are still heels.

If Randy Orton is the face of the WWE, why do I see Cena's face when I log into the WWE network on my Roku?   :laugh_mini:

I have to sign out of the mobile app in order for me to get to the vault if something is already airing, it's weird and slightly inconvenient but whatever, it works.

I can't get the archives on my XBox 360. I see some old WWE PPV's, but not all of them. I also can't get any old ECW or WCW PPV's. Were they not supposed to be on the Network or are they still having problems on the 360?

The 360 app is terrible. No search function, no chapter breaks, too long loading times between screens and, as you've noticed, no WCW or ECW ppvs. And not even all WWE ppvs (no Wrestlemanias or Royal Rumbles other than the most recent shows). Also, you can't scroll the ppvs by year, only by name. So if I know that Cena had a good match against Umaga in 2007, I have to guess the name of the ppv it was on (out of 40+ generic wrestling event names), rather than jumping to 2007.


I haven't used the 360 as a gaming device in a long time, so when the Roku stick comes out next month, I think I'll finally put my former best friend away in a box (and get this giant white monstrosity out of our living room, to my wife's pleasure).


I have a roku on a much smaller tv in the bedroom, so I've watched what I can in there. Somehow got through three hours of Wrestlemania 20 this afternoon. For all the talk of events 'not feeling like Wrestlemania' that I recall from a decade ago, through the sands of time and lowered expectations (and skipping ladies' events), it's been a relatively entertaining and breezy card. Adhering to the Raw/Smackdown brand split sticks out. No one cared then (besides Smackdown occasionally being left to its own devices and featuring good product, iirc).

So are they not putting up new RAW's and Smackdowns?  Part of the reason I got this was I work when they air and I have no DVR so thought I could catch the replays to keep up..

That's my understanding. PPVs and regular programs sans NXT are on a 30 day delay. Otherwise they risk ticking off the networks.

Then what is the reasoning for pre 2014 being sporadic and few to choose from?

Most things aside from the PPVs aren't available on VOD until after they've aired on the Network live feed.  I'm assuming over time they'll add more RAWs over time that way.

Anyone heard when Monday Night War will begin airing?  I enjoy Countdown and WrestleMania Rewind, but Monday Night War is the original show I want to see the most.
