- The Motley Fool has an article here looking at if the WWE Network will be able to handle traffic for WrestleMania, given some of the glitches that have popped up since its launch. WWE sent the following statement in an email to the site:
"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."
- Speaking of the Network, it appears as if almost-one-term former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin might be following in WWE's footsteps. The New York Post reported this week that Palin is in talks to start her own digital network that would cost $9.99 / month. If the WWE Network is a big hit, you'll be seeing a lot of people throwing their hats into the online digital channel medium.
