WWE Network coming to Xbox and PlayStation--but what about Nintendo platforms?

Newly announced streaming service from World Wrestling Entertainment launching February 24 across consoles, mobile, and PC; no mention of support for Nintendo platforms.

The WWE Network, the 24/7 streaming service announced this week at CES 2014, will be available through a multitude of devices including consoles like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the company has announced. The service launches in the United States on February 24.

In the United States, users can watch live shows and archived content through the WWE Network via a $10/month subscription. This includes access to all 12 WWE live pay-per-view events like WrestleMania 30, as well as reality shows and documentaries.

The WWE Network can be streamed through PC and mobile devices, while dedicated apps for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 will be available at launch. The Xbox One app is scheduled to arrive sometime this summer. No mention is made of support for Nintendo platforms in the WWE Network's extensive FAQ, though the company says availability for additional devices will come at a later date.

Most WWE Network programming will be commercial-free, the company said, explaining that some content will feature "limited promotional content." The streaming service is scheduled to launch in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Nordics by the end of 2014 or early 2015.

Great article Eddie. I love watching RAW and Smack Down. For those who can’t access WWE Network due to geo restriction like me, you can use UnoTelly or similar tools to get it in your country.

To those who say they miss the old days: You can relive them through WWE Network. I'm dying to watch ECW and WCW again. :D

Wrestling games have been in decline. After sub-par ports on the Wii it's no surprise that Nintendo gamers got fed up and stopped buying them. Blame sloppy ports.

This is hardly news anymore,almost every single announcement of any kind now pretty much excludes nintendo,they´re irrelevant for most developers and service providers.

Wow leave it to Eddie Makuch to point out specifically that the service was NOT announced for use on the Wii Wii U DS or 3DS. Man Eddie does your biased hate toward Nintendo know no bounds.

i don't watch wwe for about 7 years now, it's just not the same like WWF. WCW & ECW era when wrestlers had great characters and awesome finnishers like the Undertaker, Bret Heart, Hulk Hogan, the ultimate warrior, Goldberg, The sting, stone cold steve austin, eddie guerrero, booker T and so on... damn i miss the old days xD

Seems like the bash-Eddie-Makuch fad bandwagon is official. It's super-hip to some. :P

@ADO300 For sure.  The FAQ makes it sound like we can watch all the old stuff, though:  "...the most comprehensive video-on-demand library featuring all WWE, WCW and ECW pay-per-views and classic matches uncut and uncensored as well as replays of Raw and SmackDown episodes."


Maybe pick it up for a month or two and just gorge?

@19James89 i miss the old days, the old wcw days with the wolfpack , goldberg sting, wwf when they had stone cold the rock even as far back as doink the clown or jake the snake, bushwackers legion of doom....the list goes on, wrestling today is nothing like it was when the characters actually had character

That would be hilarious. Every time someone hits him it does no damage, he can't be thrown, items have no effect and he can't fall to his death.


In the yearly WWE games, they designed it so Cena automatically kicks out at 2 no matter what.

@PosiTVEMinD355 They've got the old stuff, too, and not just WWF.  You can watch all the big name wrestlers bleed out of the WWF and into the WCW all over again!

Also, you may be wearing a tin-foil hat if you are thinking that some staffer at GameSpot is conspiring against Nintendo.

I was referring to you. ;)

Also, you are one to call another a dumbass when you are using incomplete sentences. With that said, when you wrote "talk about being a dumbass", are you sure that you are not referring to yourself? You did not clarify who is the subject. ;P
