The Motley Fool website added a new article recently looking at the WWE Network and
whether or not it will be able to handle the large amount of viewers tuning in
for WrestleMania XXX in April. The article notes that WWE is saying the right
things and taking the right steps, but mentions that they are headed into
uncharted territory in April.
WWE issued the following statement to the
website in response to their article:
“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.”
