WWE Network Will Launch Before Monday Night Raw on Feb. 24


As WWE Network’s official launch comes closer, more details about the channel’s first hours are emerging. Dave Meltzer reports in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE Network content will actually be available before the announced starting time of 11:05 p.m. on Feb. 24.

Meltzer says that as WWE begins to allow fans to sign up on that day, the on-demand content that WWE has promised such as past pay-per-views and other programming will be immediately made available. As Wrestling Rumors reported earlier, sign up time for the network will be 9 a.m. ET that day. Customers will be given a free trial of the network if they wish.

Live programming will not start until 11:05 p.m., however, as Monday Night Raw goes off the air. As noted, WWE has major plans for this particular episode of Raw, as not only will it kick off the final part of the Road to WrestleMania, but big names will be involved. Among them are Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker.

    Ok, for starters, I am a huge fan, but don’t have a clue as to how all these new techno devices work. (I don’t even know how to, or want to know how to text!) I went out and bought the little apple tv box, and have plugged it into my tv set. What do I do next? I know I’m supposed to sign up somewhere on Feb. 24, but not sure where to or how to. Is there a testing thing I can do before all this starts? Any help is appreciated. I don’t facebook or tweet either.
