What Is It?
A 24/7, 365 dedicated streaming service featuring a slew of wrestling content from WWE's ridiculously large library. In addition to past and present TV shows and Pay-Per-Views, the Network will host several original programs (such as "Legends House")
$9.99 per month, with a 6 month commitment/contract up front. No word on whether or not the service will be available without said commitment, and if so, how much it will be.
Does it Include Pay-Per-Views?
Yes! All of WWE's Pay-Per-Views, INCLUDING Wrestlemania will air LIVE on the streaming Network
Does It Include Weekly TV?
Superstars and NXT will air weekly on the Network. We can probably safely assume that replays of Raw, Smackdown, and Main Event will be made available on demand, though we don't know how quickly.
This in NO way means WWE is dumping their TV contracts. Their major shows will continue to air on USA, SyFy, and iON respectively for the foreseeable future.
Where Can I Watch It?
PC/Mac via WWE.com
iOS via WWE App
Android via WWE App
Unnamed Device (WWE "couldn't talk about it" at the press conference)
When Does It Launch?
The Network launches Monday, February 24th, 2014 at 11:05pm immediately following Raw. We do not have official confirmation as to when they will allow us to open accounts and purchase the service.
How will it look?
The Network is capable of delivering all content in up to 720p
Other Cool Stuff
Many programs will have "second screen experience" that you can initiate on a secondary device (namely a smartphone or tablet) featuring superstar profiles, interviews, Twitter feeds, etc.
Most live programs have the ability to "start from the beginning" if you join the party late.
I'll continue to update this and feel free to share it. Does anyone have a list of countries available at launch and in the future? I wasn't paying much attention to that.
