I’ve noticed on my GUIDE that my WWE Net Pak channels are now called WWE Network/HD and WWE Network On Demand? Is this accurate?


Yes – we’re happy to announce that the WWE Network/HD and WWE Network On-Demand are the new channel names for your existing WWE Net Pak – the same great content with a clearer name. WWE Network/HD will continue to provide the live WWE content you love, and WWE Network On Demand will continue to be the place for your archived WWE, ECW and WCW pay-per-views, classic matches and more.



Why is Rogers Cable exclusively carrying WWE Network?


Rogers Cable is NOT exclusively carrying WWE Network. Rogers Media (which owns the Canadian WWE distribution rights) is actively working with all major Canadian TV service providers to bring WWE Network to all Canadian fans. Rogers is the first to offer it to our Cable customers, but the other TV service providers are interested in WWE Network, and are negotiating with Rogers. Like any business deal, these negotiations can take some time to come to an agreement.



I live in a former Mountain Cable service area? When can I get WWE Network from Rogers?


Rogers is currently working to offer WWE Network in your area. We know how much you want WWE Network and although we don’t have a specific date yet, once we know, we will communicate it out.



I don’t have Rogers Cable, How can I get WWE Network?


Rogers is in discussions with all major TV providers in Canada to offer WWE Network. Please contact your TV service provider and ask them to carry WWE Network. Your voice will tell your TV provider that their customers (YOU!) want it! This will help encourage them to carry it as soon as they can! The other TV service providers all are interested in WWE Network, but like any business deal, these negotiations can take some time to come to an agreement.



Does WWE Network have a Free Preview?


There is no Free Preview of WWE Network. WWE Network is available to order for $11.99/month.


In order to launch as quickly as we could, both Rogers and WWE worked to offer some On Demand programming on its own channel.  WWE Net Pak was a preview, in other words, a selected sample of the best WWE Network programming that is being carried in Canada as a monthly Pay Per View subscription package. The use of the word “Preview” has caused some confusion with customers thinking this means it’s a Free Preview. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.



How much is WWE Network?


WWE Network is available for $11.99/month, as a monthly recurring subscription. Taxes are extra. The Full Monthly Service Fee will be charged if the subscription is cancelled anytime during your billing cycle (no full or partial refund provided). The WWE Network is billed month-to-month, with no term commitment. As a comparison, in the U.S., the month-to-month rate has been announced to be $19.99. There currently is no plan to increase the price.



When will I be able to get WWE Network online like WWE Network in the U.S.?


Rogers and WWE are working on all the technical requirements to make this happen in an authenticated, secure manner that meets Rogers, WWE and Customer’s expectations. Unfortunately, there is no current timing that we can provide. This also includes offering WWE Net Pak on all-screens – tablets, mobile phones, Smart TVs etc. – to offer our customers a true “TV Everywhere” experience.



What is the difference between WWE Net Pak and WWE Network?


WWE Net Pak was a preview or sample of the best WWE Network programming that is being carried in Canada as a monthly Pay Per View subscription package. We wanted to provide this programming to customers as soon as possible (prior to CRTC’s approval for carriage in Canada) and this was the best way to do it quickly.


Now that WWE Network has been approved for carriage in Canada, you will see a vast improvement to the content available. The main differences are that WWE Network in Canada has both an HD and SD TV channel along with an On Demand channel, while WWE Network is strictly an online service in the United States that has both the streaming live video (shown on Network’s HD/SD channels) but also the vast WWE Library online.



When will the full WWE Network be available?

Rogers has received permission from the CRTC (the regulatory body that oversees broadcasting in Canada) to carry the full WWE Network in Canada as of December 3rd, 2014
