I can watch on IE but not Chrome.

I can navigate in Chrome but videos do not load. In IE they load fine and play smoothly.

I did the same as you. Took me a couple minutes to figure out how to order it. When you get to your account screen there is an option that says "Buy WWE Network." Not sure if it was there the whole time, because I didn't notice it right away.

Thanks. That did the trick. Watching some ECW Hardcore TV.

Ok I'm watching videos again, but I can't seem to get them to playback perfectly smooth. It can be smooth for a few mins at a time, at most, but every now and then, it pauses as if it needs to load more content and then resumes. Is anybody else experiencing this or not experiencing it?

The issues with the WWE Network are all said to be issues on the MLBAM's side of things. There was no real frenzy or craziness in Stamford, CT over the issues, as it was out of their hands. There were a lot of people at Raw and in Stamford who weren't able to access the VOD content on the network, so if you think it's you having the problem, you are not alone.

It keeps saying that there is an error. Anybody else having this trouble or are they now blocking me?Same problem here. Though after an hour of trying, I got 6 minutes of Starrcade 86, and it had that film-like appearance

What are you watching with (Roku, xbox, Google Chrome, laptop, etc)? I've heard there are adjustments that can be made on some devices that will correct this problem.

I can't seem to watch much of anything. I was successfully able to watch the Legends show about Giants. Other than that, anything I try to watch either won't load or, if it does start, it stops and buffers so frequently and for so long that it's unwatchable.

I called their tech support line and she asked me what device I was watching it on and I told her I'd tried both PS3 and Apple TV. She asked me what browser I was using, so obviously, she really doesn't understand any of the systems.

Hopefully they'll have the bugs worked out soon.

I am using PS3, Andriod and PC through Google Chrome. None of them were working well at all up until a few hours ago. Right now, Google Chrome is working best, although it chokes once in a while.

Are the Clash shows on there? Doesn't look like it, but I may not be navigating correctly.

Obviously, the big news of the day is that WWE Network launched yesterday with its free trial and well, as one might suspect, there were some issues.

The VOD feature worked sporadically, at best, for anyone not using a mobile device. If you were using a Roku, a Playstation, etc., you were likely frustrated at some point in the day. We are told that MLBAM was completely overwhelmed by the usage of the VOD area and that logjammed requests users were making and causing failures. I was told by one person that since the service was free, that allowed far more users than expected to begin sampling the product and the stress of all those users (at least some of whom won't be remaining as paying customer) didn't help either.

We've also heard from angry readers who signed up for the free trial and claimed their credit cards were immediately charged $9.99. If that happened to you, I suggest calling the Network's customer service immediately.

I am assuming over the next few days WWE and MLBAM figure the bugs out. There really is no way to beta test for insane levels of traffic and honestly, there had to be some issues expected along the way. Even Disneyland's opening was a complete trainwreck. When you break new ground, things aren't always going to work properly. As long as WWE's customer service tries to make good with the audience, all will be well in the end.

The New York Post covered the launch and its issues yesterday at this link.

No. Just the PPVs and a smattering of older shows.

They started showing RAW from episode 1 today, and they have all been added to the archive

Anyone still having issues? I started on an ECW PPV earlier on my iphone , and it worked fine, but I had to pause it. Now it's hanging and then the app crashes or it just goes back to the PPV listing page.

I already have a charge on my credit card even though it said I wouldn't be billed until 3/3/14. I checked the My Account page and it even says there that I won't be billed until 3/3/14.

I called the customer service center, sounds like they are in India, and they said the charge is just to verify that my credit card is valid and it will drop off in a week at which time they will charge my credit card again for $9.99 for the first month.

Still can only get a couple of things to work on the Roku except the live stream, which plays fine.

WWE posted the following on the Network's Facebook Page:
"We are currently experiencing technical issues with WWE Network’s video-on-demand library affecting 20% of viewers. Working with MLBAM, we expect to have this issue fully resolved by 6 p.m. tonight."

Everything is working on my Roku 2 devices now. Still can't get anything except the live stream on my PC with XP.
