I've seen several references to issues transmission-wise regarding web-based or WWE network events. Can you guys please share specifics and anything that you know about what WWE may have stated the issue was, and if they said they were addressing it (and how)?

It's a professional question so any input would be greatly appreciated.  

Thanks!
Eric

Over a year of having WWE Network I have never had a problem with the Network. I use a desktop.

Just buffering issues mainly, better now that I've switched from Time Warner to FIOS.  They're using MLB's infrastructure, as are tons of other companies now, and it's solid and has no significant problems.  MLB, by the way, is making a fortune off of this.  They're probably making as much money off of technology as they are off of baseball now.

Same here, buffering issue. It would skip back a few seconds and reply something. That was at my old house. I just bought and moved into a new house two months ago, so I had to change my ISP. I got a faster service of 50mb, and haven't had any issues since.

Thanks for the heads up Steve. I had no idea that MLB had a technology division but they seemed to be the first to market with streaming their product.

Yeah HBF, when they made the original announcement in Vegas last year, they touted the fact the guys at MLB took on the infrastructure of getting the network up to let everyone know that this was a rock solid endeavor based on MLB's reputation in this area.

So it seems that the issues are related to user bandwidth and/or faulty ISP's.  I'm still inclined to speak with them but the scope is now much lesser, unless they are looking to build or change their own CDN (Content Delivery Network, like Akamai).

I encounter 2 different issues using my Roku.  The first is as you mention.  It skips, but it skips seamlessly.  You'll watch something, then watch the same thing again, and if you weren't paying careful attention you would barely realize it.  This seems to be happening on their end.  If you rewind, the skip is still there. 

The second issue is the buffering issue that is likely on my end as a bandwidth issue.  The screen will go black and take several seconds to a couple of minutes, to reload.  The screen can also become pixilated and blocky, like an old Super Nintendo game that was being stretched to its maximum capabilities at times.  This was much worse with Time Warner for me than with FIOS, at least the pixilation issue.  In general though, my screen is crisper using FIOS across the board.  My 3rd and smallest TV never worked right in my old apartment with TWC, in fact I was going to return it soon after buying it for having a generally muddy picture but got lazy and never did, but since hooking it up to FIOS after my move, it's perfect.

I use a desktop connected to a big screen. No issues. yes, occasional buffering, but it's usually very short and the picture quality is excellent. I've been happy with it, but I don't watch all that much with all the stuff that's on youtube but it's so cheap it's worth it even just watching the PPvs and a few original episodes.

I have terrible internet at my new place, so I watch it mostly on my 4G phone, and have just the skipping issue mentioned above... at my old place I also had from time to time the pixelated screen on my laptop hooked up to my TV for a few seconds at a time, especially it seemed when it was towards the end of the event.

I do not usually have the same issues when watching stuff "from the vault", just the live streams, and overall, I am very satisified with the service.

I think at $9.99 it is well worth it for the PPV's alone, and everything else offfered is a bonus
