WWE Network app available now on Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4 but not Xbox One

Streaming service coming to Microsoft's new console sometime this summer; no mention at all of support for Nintendo platforms.

The official WWE Network app launched today for consoles like the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Notably missing from that list, however, is the Xbox One, which will receive the much-touted streaming app sometime this summer, the WWE said in a statement.

Also missing is support for Nintendo devices like the Wii, Wii U, or 3DS. The WWE did not today, nor in their original announcement of the WWE Network last month, ever mention support for Nintendo platforms.

In the United States, WWE Network users can watch live shows and archived content for a $10/month subscription (as long as you commit for at least six months). This includes access to all 12 WWE live pay-per-view events like Wrestlemania 30, as well as reality shows and documentaries.

In addition to support for gaming consoles, subscribers can watch WWE Network content through their PCs and mobile devices. The above image shows off how the WWE Network app looks on your PS3 or PS4.

Ok I am now officially a PS4 user (got mine yesterday at Gamestop) More and More M$ hands people reasons not to invest in Xbox One. Thanks for yet another one. Gods if I bought their system I'd take a trip to their headquarters and puch the first employee of theirs right in the face...


BTW when you have a new console out you support it FIRST before your last gen.

Can't get the PS4 WWE app to work.  Won't even let me click on the 'continue' button after inputting all the login info smh.

LOL@ the sony fanboys acting like this is a victory.  If a streaming app came out that let you watch live streams of people taking a dump they would applaud it as long as it was something that PS4 has and X1 doesn't.

It's not available outside US until next year anyway. So it will be on Xbox One way before it's available to me. WWE told everyone it wasn't available on XBO at launch over a month ago. This isn't news!

"...but not on Xbox One"   I see GameSpot continues to try to fuel fanboy wars in their article titles.  When they put up articles for things like the Bonnaroo app and NFL Now apps for Xbox One they never put "...but not on PS4".   But who cares Microsoft knows their consumers are too sophisticated to have any demand for a WWE app.

i was excited untill i read in the US, come on guys people from all over the world use your site you could at least put that fact in the title


and also we know the Wii U would not be getting an app like this because that not the kind of thing the Wii U would have anyway


also we get it gamespot you don't like Nintendo (even though as journalists your ment to be impartial) so you don't have to bash it with these little remarks every chance you get

Ironic that the "all-in-one entertainment system" doesn't get the WWE Network until summer.  I would've loved to watch it on Xbox One, especially since I could just use voice commands to control it (hopefully).  Regardless, I have it on my PS4 and it works really well.  I just wish Raw and SmackDown replays were available immediately.

The 360 has had a WWE app since last year. Also there should be no reason for the delay since the hardware between the PS4 and the Xbone are almost the same. Sony must bought a timed exclusive app! hahahahahahha 


They won't do that for Hbo Go app since Time Warner is a competitor with Sony Media.

Sad to see so many people waste their money on a company that doesn't listen to its fans.

I'll get it in about a week to let them work out the kinks. Being a fan of wrestling, this a no-brainer for me. Even if it would be just to watch the PPVs cheap and legally. XD

As a gamer, I feel like i'm hitting a wall.  Beside MLB the Show and Rocksmith, nothing is really exciting me these days.

The match against Cesaro and Blandy Borton from Smackdown from two weeks ago is surprising good. But WWE went back to being bland and boring after that.


The few good moments that WWE gets these days is like a magic trick: Now you see it, now you don't.

It's a bigger fail that grown men watch this trash.

I just went to WWE to check out their Network.


Its a FAIL.


I thought it was going to have ALL the RAW and SMACKDOWN episodes in FULL ever aired on their network, but they have NOTHING!


They have Raw and Smackdown "replays" with ISN'T the FULL episodes.


FAIL.


So much potential thrown down the drain.

Not really interested in the Network, with the current WWE booking and main event for wrestlemania being bland... i'll just wait till it gets better before i sign up.

I remember how big WWF was in the 80s, 90s wwe is a far fall from that time

Just what we need: something else for Michael Cole to shill during RAW broadcasts.

So Nintendo isn't getting this at all? Some people love to call Nintendo consoles the "kiddie" consoles, so wouldn't that be what all the John Cena fans play? Looks like the "Cenation" won't be watching this on their game consoles then.


On a more serious note.. it would be nice to see it on Nintendo systems since I still have an old Wii I use for Netflix once in a while, and this would be nice to have to watch the older content (screw the Cena era). Yeah I have a PS3 I could use, but since that's in a different room it would be nice to use the Wii every now and then.

@PosiTVEMinD355 Isn't it fascinating how things continue even after you no longer pay attention to them?

@Kinguard73  Microsoft doesn't like to have rushed bare bones apps. They like more development to go into it for a more streamlined optimized experience. Good example is the trash Twitch app on PS4 compared to the amazing one on the X1. I thought gamers appreciated quality over rushed software?

You mean the type of consumers that get all excited about another COD clone? That kind? lol

@MajinSquall These guys are not true journalists, at least Eddie isn't. He is just a glorified commentator. Nothing more, nothing less.

@Mraou  ....which is why they are allowing you to watch archived footage, you can choose to rewatch your nostalgia fillled memories without "having" to watch the current product.

@SavoyPrime So far there are no kinks, unless you count the app issue on 360.  The streaming quality has been superb the entire day.

@chev7781 Did you see it years ago, back before WCW got revved up?  Eeesh.  Outside of pay per view, almost every match was Somebody Real vs. Joe Nobody.  Once the other firms started giving them competition, things got a lot better.

@johnnycontardo !?!?  The original announcement sure made it sound like they would have all the old shows.  That is really sad.

@b74kd3th I remember when wrestlers actually used nick names (Jake the snake, Andre the giant, Hulk Hogan, Warrior, etc..), these days they go by their real names... Its not as memorial as it was back in the days when wrestlers were larger than life.

strife14467

@b74kd3th I used to watch it regularly during those times, but now I just don't care for it anymore. The whole PG Era (AKA John Cena Era) is dull and stupid. What happened to all the great characters? What happened to all the creative stories? Now all we have are reality based clowns (no offense to Doink) and idiotic stories. I might consider the WWE Network only for the older content (especially ECW), but the new stuff can rot for all I care.

@SchNerdy @Kinguard73 Mind you they already stated that their console is a Multi entertainment system thus their focus wasn't at all on games which has be proven a dozen times over but seriously. I really do hope a PC OS company of such quality as Microsoft could at LEAST bring out a better Twitch app then a Gaming company such as Sony. Mind you I like PS4's twitch just fine but I mean come on. Microsoft  better be better than Sony at PC like apps.


God knows the fans don't need to be insulted further than they already have been by that company.

@SchNerdy @Kinguard73 Yes, that must be it. The WWE app, not at all developed by Microsoft, was rushed out to the 360 ahead of the Xbox One. Because Microsoft are all about quality.
