4/28 WWE Network updates: Slammy Awards category removed, WWE begins process of cracking down on account sharing

WWE Network

On Thursday, WWE Network made some updates to its service. The first is that the Slammy Awards category in the video-on-demand section has been quietly removed. While Slammy Awards editions of WWE RAW from 2008 to present day have been moved to the WWE RAW Replays area, the historical editions of the show from 1986 and 1987, as well as 1994, have been removed from the Network altogether.

Also, WWE has begun the process of cracking down on users who share their WWE Network accounts with others on multiple devices. Users of the Network have begun to get an error message of “stream limit exceeded” when they log-in to their account on multiple devices at the same time.

On the help section of the Network, the following is listed about this issue:

If you see an error that says “STREAM LIMIT EXCEEDED” or “TOO MANY USAGE ATTEMPTS” it means your WWE Network account is in use on another device. WWE Network allows one Network stream per login.

To resolve:

* Log out of all devices

* Log back in to the primary device you are trying to view on

If you have shared your account with friends or family, they may be using WWE Network while you’re trying watch some content. WWE Network allows one Network stream per login.

If you think someone is using your account without your permission:

* Log out of all devices

* Change your WWE Password

* Log back in to the primary device you are trying to view on

WWE has also added the following in their “Terms of Service” section in regards to this new development with account sharing on the Network:

Access to WWE Network is subject to approval of your Payment Method information and verification of other information you submit to us or that is otherwise provided to us. Accordingly, if your payment (flat fee or monthly) cannot be processed for any reason, including because your Payment Method is no longer valid, we may terminate your access to the WWE Network immediately. Although your WWE Network subscription is accessible on a number of devices, your use is limited to one (1) WWE Network stream on one (1) device at any given time. IF YOU CIRCUMVENT OR ATTEMPT TO CIRCUMVENT ANY OF THE USE RESTRICTIONS IN THESE TERMS, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE SUBJECT TO IMMEDIATE TERMINATION AND YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL ACTION. SHARING OF LOGIN INFORMATION, INCLUDING PASSWORDS, IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.
