  4. Kinda bummed since Canada still has the shitty version of the WWE Network. :sad1:
  5. WWE doesn't like black people and Canada, or so it seems.
  6. Does Vince think Canada is Nigeria or what?

  7. He's a bit senile and clueless, so you never know.
    • Zing! Zing! x 1
  8. Canada gets to pay more than the $9.99 and we get less on the network ...what a deal! But the line that really upsets me is: "...And if you're not a Rogers subscriber, do our job for us and bug your cable provider by begging them to add the network."
  9. Good to hear they finally rescheduled the launch of the Network over there, hopefully everything goes down properly.
  10. Can't wait to get the WWE Network in September 2015. :kiss:
  11. lol UK \_/
  12. Abit late don't you think? lol

  13. This is laughable... after what 2 or 3 failed launches they now launch it and it's £10 a month? That's $15. No incentive for anyone who currently access's the US version with a VPN to cancel and get it legitimately... I'm surprised considering we only used to pay £17.95 for a PPV which is about $27, compared to the $50 you paid over there, I thought they'd keep the network cheaper also, considering Netflix is only £5.99 here.
  14. No, not at all.

    Anyways, everyone should stick it to Vince and not buy this thing.
  15. Exactly the point my precious post was trying to make. This seems like an act of desperation, rather then an act of mending a mistake. To little, to late in my opinion.
  16. But, it's not the company's fault the UK still hasn't got the Network, it's the fans' fault. :dawg:

  17. I honestly don't know why anybody in the UK would bother. The majority of people who watch will already get Raw, SD, NXT and the UK special stuff like WWE Vintage on sky sports- which they already have to pay for.
    I'll stick to streaming WWE.
  18. Yeah, you're right in terms about what they'll get.

    But the UK fans had every right to chant 'Where's our network?' when the 'E messed up the first time.
  19. No thanks, I'll stick with RAW on my Sky Sports plus all of the free TNA stuff on Challenge. But NXT is not shown on Sky Sports anymore, apparently it's being removed for the Network. :'(

    So we would pay $5 more and they pretty much pissed us all off. GG.
  20. EuroCryfags gonna cry.
