Established in 1952, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has become synonymous with fast-paced, action-packed events. It also boasts a worldwide following in selected countries of over 3.5 million, and is available through local TV services. But did you know that you can also access the latest entertainment from WWE through the WWE Network?
The WWE Network is a 24-hour a day channel available on the WWE Website and through the WWE App. The channel can be streamed to just about any device. Simply put, you can now access the latest superstars in action with ease. A WWE Network subscription costs a little under $10 per month.
What you get from a WWE Network Subscription
A network subscription to the WWE Network gives you access to all live WWE Pay-Per-View events. In addition, you will also have access to a wide range of media such as Stone Cold Podcasts, the WWE Ride Along, The Monday Night War, The Edge & Christian Show, Camp WWE and WWE Countdown. You will also get a front row seat to hours of on-demand programming.
All you will need is a fast and reliable internet connection, a connected device and your WWE Network subscription. It is recommended that you connect using a wired Ethernet device as Wifi connected devices are prone to lag. Lag will cause your live streaming action to buffer and no-one wants that.
WWE Network in Cuba and North Korea
The WWE Network is currently unavailable to users in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Abkhazia, Sudan, Syria and Liechtenstein. If you live in any of these countries then you likely missed WWE’s Survivor Series.
It’s the one night a year that superstars from rival shows Raw and SmackDown battle it out in what can be best described as entertainment heaven. This year was no different. The main event featured superstars Brock Lesnar and AJ Styles and while the bout was not a title fight, fans from around the world thought they’d never have the opportunity to see the fight.
If you’re wondering why you missed this and more from WWE it’s because you are geographically blocked from accessing it. But, it’s rather simple to unlock this content. All you need is a subscription to a VPN (Virtual Private Network) such as Shellfire. Learn more about the VPN here.
To access the VPN, simply log on to your account and select the country to which you want to connect through the VPN. In this case, you will want to log into a computer in a country which has access to the WWE Network such as the USA. Now open your WWE Network App, sign in and enjoy the entertainment. You can learn more about geo-blocking here.
