The video / audio has changed quality with the launch of Network 2.0. One step forward and one step back.

Old specs (Everything but live stream):

Video: H.264 1080p 30fps 7000kbps
Audio: AAC 192kbps

New specs (Everything but live stream):

Video: H.264 720p 30fps 4500kbps
Audio: AAC 128kbps

The live stream also jumped in quality, but it is slightly less quality than the non-live stuff that gets uploaded later on.

The problem is that all 11,000 videos seem to have botched mono audio. Meaning that both the left and right audio are outputting the exact same thing. The original Network had the same problem when it launched but they fixed the issue quickly later on and everything added after that was in proper stereo. However, they never went back and fixed what they launched with which was in mono. Back then, they had about 1000 or so videos affected by this bug, now they have about 110000 videos. Will they fix upcoming videos? Probably. Will they fix everything that's already on WWE Network? Who knows.
