Xbox One can now stream Wrestlemania with WWE Network app's release
The WWE Network app is now available on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.
The Xbox One can now count itself among the video game consoles with access to the WWE Network, thanks to the release of the service's streaming app today.
When the 24/7 streaming service was announced in January, the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 were among the platforms it was slated to be available on at launch. Sure enough, the app was released on all three systems in February, while Xbox One owners were told they wouldn't be getting access until this summer. That release window has now been beaten, although the app unfortunately was not available in time to let wrestling fans watch Wrestlemania 30 live earlier this month.
For a $10/month subscription (with a six-month commitment), WWE Network subscribers get access to all of the WWE's live pay-per-views in addition to original programming and classic PPVs and TV shows, including WCW and ECW content. That means you can easily watch a replay of Wrestlemania 30 or a random Chris Jericho WCW match where he throws a tantrum.
The Xbox One version of the app improves on other versions in at least one way by allowing PPVs to be sorted by year, rather than individual event. This makes it easier to pick your favorite year of wrestling and watch all of its PPVs in chronological order.
There is still no word regarding a version of the WWE Network app for any of Nintendo's systems, including the Wii, Wii U, and 3DS. In addition to the aforementioned platforms, access to the WWE Network is available on PC, as well as iOS and Android devices.
