If it was 14.99, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. That would save me a lot of money as I buy the PPVs.

That's a pretty reasonable price, actually.

15 bucks is a genius price point IMO. If you get people that rarely buy the events other than Wrestlemania (as I feel many people do this, including myself) this gives a little incentive to do so. Since Wrestlemania isn't included that means that the $15 for April is basically a waste, so factoring it into the rest of the year and you're still paying $16 and some change for the rest of the ppv events. That's actually a really good value for those that purchase even just 2 or 3 other shows a year.

Yeah, anything between $13 and $15, I'll buy it for sure. A caller also asked Vince if the network would remain PG because the adult viewers want edginess, and Vince McMahon said they would accommodate to that just like they do on their Home Videos (DVDs, Blu Rays, etc).

Will they have a bunch of **** on it during the non-RAW/Smackdown/PPV times?

In other words, don't hold your breath. It's not happening. Vince gave a good answer, but it's just not happening.

I imagine there will be a good amount of reruns. Probably air Raw, Smackdown, Main Event and NXT every day, twice in some cases. Then the rest of it will be interviews and old programming sitting in the archives.

Me too, probably. But I own every season of Friends and that doesn't stop me from watching on TV all the time.

Isn't there a WWE Vintage channel? Be nice if they just got rid of that and threw vintage **** up on the WWE Network.

I don't know if there's anything they could do to stop this. But with my cable - I can order a pay channel (let's say Showtime for this example) and cancel it 3 days later. I only pay a prorated portion of what the monthly cost is. 3 days is roughly 10% of a month...so with the $16 bucks a month they charge for Showtime, I would only pay $1.60 for having Showtime those 3 days. And they allow you to call and cancel, or switch as often as you like.

So what would stop people from ordering the WWE channel on a PPV day...then canceling it the next day? It literally might cost you 50 cents to watch a pay per view and it would be totally legally and tapable, etc.

I just hope if they start showing their DVD documentary library on the new channel that they don't pull them from Netflix. Would piss me off greatly.

I wouldn't be shocked if your cable company has a loosely enforced 30 day policy where you aren't supposed to be able to cancel for 30 days. If they notice that you are doing this every month I would expect that they would start enforcing this, but I suppose you would get away with it for a while.

Well they don't now for their pay channels. It was their rep on the phone that was encouraging me to do this if I wanted too. Now if the WWE could get cable companies to make separate policies for their channel...but I doubt they could pull that off.

For me personally - if they made a channel for 12-15 bucks, I'd get it. Especially if they have to fill time slots with old matches from the 80s and stuff. Would love to see some of that stuff again.
