On Monday February 24, the WWE unveiled their highly anticipated WWE Network. Unfortunately, the debut didn't go as smoothly as planned. Within a few hours of the official launch, many subscribers were complaining of issues with the service. The complaints grew rapidly and forced the WWE to make an official statement. According to a February 25 report by, the WWE made the following comments:

"We are currently experiencing technical issues with @WWENetwork's video-on-demand library affecting 20 percent of viewers. Working with MLBAM, we expect to have this issue fully resolved by 6 p.m. tonight."

Early estimations are that over 250,000 wrestling fans signed up for the WWE Network on its first day. According to WWE's statement, that means roughly 50,000 subscribers were experiencing technical issues. It seems for the most part, these issues haven't been fixed as of yet.

On Tuesday, in addition to the reports circulating the Internet, loyal readers of this column were still experiencing issues with signing up, getting their free 1 week trial, videos constantly buffering and videos on demand constantly freezing up.

For those who haven't signed up yet, waiting another few days might be the best option as to ensure these issues are fixed.

Other than the technical issues, most of the general feedback is positive toward the live streaming, overall content and the WWE Network's interface.
