They're starting it this Friday with no promotion at all? I'd have no idea this was happening if I wasn't on here.
Their promotion of the Network is so small now. It went from $9.99 being said every 10 seconds to basically nothing. Corey Graves makes the odd mention to old footage you could watch, but I'd guess that all comes from him. They hype it on the PPV pre-shows, but I'd bet more people are already watching that on the Network, rather than on YouTube or Facebook. I think they majorly overestimate the power of Twitter and Facebook. Vince probably think that all the likes and follows means each and every one of those people read everything they put out. I think they only decided that date this week, and they will probably run trailers on 205 Live and NXT this week.
It's all a bit of a mess, since they needed to show episode 1 of the UK show before TakeOver: Chicago. Then they spoiled the first show by announcing the UK match for TakeOver last week.
They finally mentioned mentioned the UK series tonight on Raw, and I got an e-mail about it. They send out about an e-mail a week which covers things much more thoroughly than anything they say on TV. It's actually helpful to me, but I don't know how many people read them or how many people even used their primary e-mail to sign up. I could've easily have given them my spam e-mail.
This thread was great before AA ruined it.
