The Motley Fool website has an article up discussing the WWE Network and the concerns over steaming issues. The article noted the stream issues that came with the launch of the network and the issues some viewers had with the NXT Arrival live stream. One thing to note is that I fully expect WWE to have all of the remaining issues resolved before WrestleMania. The reason for the WWE Main Event live streams is for the company to be able to test and work out the bugs. The WWE Hall of Fame will be their largest and final test before WrestleMania.
WWE issued a statement assuring subscribers that they have the stream issues addressed:
“Notwithstanding the overwhelmingly positive response to WWE Network, we want to ensure subscribers have the highest-quality experience watching WrestleMania 30 and all our programming, and thus have put in place significant quality assurances. These steps include increased capacity to handle high volumes of transactions, logins, and concurrent live streams, daily ‘stress’ testing of all systems over an extended period, and the addition of technology experts to review our plan and procedures. We’re confident that we’ll be ready on Sunday, April 6.”
