WWE Network Goes Live, Encounters Tech Problems At Launch

The WWE Network streaming service went live this morning, and consumers "started complaining early in the day that they couldn’t access the service via the WWE website." The company "blamed the snafu on higher than expected levels of traffic that overwhelmed the servers" of MLBAM, which is handling the back-end technology for the service. WWE in a statement said MLBAM was "overwhelmed and their systems have been unable to process most orders since 9 a.m. due to demand" (NYPOST.com, 2/24).
