I am in the exact same position you are. I live in Hamilton, ON and am on Rogers version of Shaw cable (which is brutal).
So this is what I did: Signed up for Unblock-Us (it's only $4.99 a month). Signed up for the Network (using a US address / pay with paypal). Turn on Unblock-Us, turn on the Network and BAM! No issues since. It works like gravy on my PS4.
I use and subscribe to that for my DNS. It costs £2 - £3 a month with a week free trial.
Once you're registered etc go to the site and it will tell you what country you want to use for your Netflix region so in your case use "USA". (You don't need Netflix obv)
Then subscribe to the network and use Paypal as payment method. If it asks for an address or the likes then just use a random US address. IIRC I used WWE HQ in Stamford lol
On the unblock us website it will show you how to set it up on all of your devices be it android/Apple/xbox/PS etc. others may recommend a free DNS service but I've never had any issues with Unblock-Us so it gets my vote
Let me know how you get on
I recommend UnoTelly over UnblockUs. I've used both. It's better value. Supports more stuff.
Android: Yes you need UnoTelly, but you'll also need FakeGPS and a rooted Android device to make WWE work with it. Also of note: After app version 3.2 I've been unable to get the on demand stuff to work in Canada. Live stream works. (Basically when they changed the icon to the new WWE logo, the on demand archive stopped working on all my Android devices.)
If anyone needs it, I have the last APK that has worked for me.
PS3: You just create a US account and it believes you and lets you download the app. Other consoles: Damned if I know.
iOS: So long as you have a DNS option setup like UnoTelly it works just fine.
(For the record I do not work for UnoTelly. Just having used the two services they have better customer service, and have been cheaper and more reliable).
As for your warning: WWE cancelling accounts for doing this is about as likely as Netflix. While Netflix explicitly say you can't in their TOS, which is just to cover their asses so they can say "Look, we don't allow it!" to their partners I imagine.
WWE is NOT going to turn down free money from out of region especially when Rogers, Sky etc... have buttfucked them.
Article fails completely to show UnblockUs and UnoTelly (the latter being my choice as you can get up to six months free). A VPN is going to route the video via their servers first meaning you're stuck with whatever bandwidth they have. The two I've mentioned are DNS solutions that use your bandwidth only.
Having used a VPN recently for another video service, I'd highly NOT recommend it from my personal experience.
I saw a theory the other day that the delay is adding closed captions to the episodes... This might back this up...
I'm back again.
Apple have now listed the WWE Network application on the Apple TV website with NEW next to it.
UK link - https://www.apple.com/uk/appletv/whats-on/
US link for comparison - https://www.apple.com/appletv/whats-on/
I'm excited as I can finally drop my VPN and get it for £6.66!
UnLocator. It's in BETA atm so it's free but they will be charging when BETA leaves.
Best way is to set up the DNS code on your router so that all your devices work, either that or you will need to edit your DNS on each separate device.
Works for me on XBox 360, PC, Mac and PS3 and also on Android with Fake GPS (rooted).
You don't need to pay for a proxy . Download Betternet VPN , its free in the App Store .
Turn it on . Sign up through , and just pay via pay pal monthly . It takes it out monthly without me doing anything .
Then you can use it anywhere , including Xbox , PS4 where ever you can download the wwe app you'll have it .
I believe that is a message they're giving to people trying to watch the Network from outside the US. I have two VPNs, Private Internet Access & Hotspot Shield, & neither of them seem to working for the WWE Network.
The Hola Chrome extension usually seems to work, although it is a bit patchy. Unblock Us however has worked fine, although it isn't a true VPN, doesn't work for every site on the internet, & is more expensive than the other two VPNs I've already got. Currently though, I'm just using the free trial.
True enough. Unlocator is currently in beta and that's why it's "free" at the moment.
And for sure, you're preaching to the choir from a security standpoint. Just throwing my recommendation into the ring - I use a DNS solution on my iPad, Apple TV and PS3 and it works seamlessly.
I am using the network in the UK, getting a flawless HD live stream and the VOD is working perfect. I'm using Google Chrome on a HP laptop. The program I am using is Spotflux, you can find my guide to connect here:
if you use Unblock-Us or UnoTelly, you can put the DNS addresses in your router and all devices attached to wired or WiFi will be able to access WWE Network, computers, tablets and game consoles.
On Xbox One, you need to change the consoles region setting to English/USA to download the WWE Network app. You can change it back to English/United Kingdom after.
On PS3/PS4, you need to sign in with a US PSN to download the app.
On iOS, you just need the WWE app.
On Xbox 360, just search for WWE in the app store.
As a Canadian here's what I did:
I used to generate a fake identity. Basically generated until I got an Oregon address. (Something to do with taxes someone said. You'll be charged slightly more in other states).
Created a WWE Network account with those details INCLUDING the email address it generates. Then I went to signup, went to Paypal, used my usual login and paid. When the Paypal process finished, however, the WWE site threw a "page not found" error. I thought it hadn't gone through, but it had.
Of course they ARE geoblocking I believe so you'll need to sign up for something like UnoTelly (with which you can get a 7 day trial, and then for tweeting about their service get 30 free days) so you can appear to be in the US so you can watch.
So far for me it works fine on my PC and my iOS devices. Android, for some reason, knows I'm not in the US. Not figured out a way around that yet.
So far I've watched a bunch of the live channel, and a few things from the vault, and not had a single issue at all.
Except that's only on your PC, and also runs as a VPN I think, which means you're using someone elses bandwidth as well as your own.
The DNS level ones like UnoTelly do not effect your bandwidth so if you have an epic hookup, you'll get to use it.
You really should have searched before posting my friend since there are many of us who've mentioned on here we're streaming in Canada.
UnoTelly is my service of choice. And hasn't cost me a thing. Clearly with you there is an error in the geoblocking as it is very much blocked for every other person outside the US I've come across.
Edit: Actually it would seem they dropped the geoblock from what others have said. Meh, UnoTelly is what I use to change Netflix regions anyway so whatever.
if you're using a DNS proxy (Unblock-Us, UnoTelly, etc), put the addresses into your router instead of each device. you can message me if need more help with it.
I get that message whenever I switch over to Google's DNS (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124) since I'm in Canada. when I switch back to UnoTelly, the Network starts working again.
Rogers is sponsoring an application to the CRTC to bring the traditional network to Canada. I assume there was some kind of holdup/issue there along with Rogers dumping a truck of money at the WWE.
I'm interested to see what the monthly cost will be, having the ability to PVR shows will be nice, but at the same time I've had the Network since Feb thanks to Unblock-Us so whatever...
HOLA will be slow as it uses their proxy I think so it's routing via elsewhere before coming to you.
I use UnoTelly. It's better than UnblockUs IMO as it supports more services, and more importantly you can get 6 months free by tweeting about them. I've had it two months. Not paid a dime.
I've had zero issues with it on WWE at all, and since it works at a DNS level it's a direct connection to your computer. I'm using it on the PC, PS3, iOS and Android.
One thing I will warn you is on Android you'll HAVE to have root on your phone to use it. You have to fake your GPS location, and that can only be done properly with root.
If you have any other questions I'm happy to answer.
Check your IP address against something like https://ipinfo.io and see if country data is correct -/ or ideally maxmind (google “maxmind demo”) as that’s what WWE uses mostly.. it may think you’re not in the right country and blocking you. The platform is kind of trash so I wouldn’t be surprised
For what it's worth, got mine up and running within 5 minutes.
Changed region + locale to United States. Rebooted.
Downloaded the WWE Network App. Changed region + locale to United Kingdom. Rebooted.
Changed DNS settings to match UnLocator. Rebooted.
Signed in to Xbox LIVE, launched WWE Network app. Clicked play.
Currently watching WWE Countdown Tag Teams.
Hope I have somehow helped!
u/swagboyclassman Hello. Good evening. Is everything still going well for you in watching the WWE Network UK, via NordVPN?
I actually tried it on an iPad (Apple), and was not able to log in. It kept telling me that they were having problems with their servers, etc. This was back in the middle of March. It also did not work for me with ExpressVPN. I live in California. Should I try it on a computer better? Or will it work on the Amazon Fire TV?
I'm using my router(Asus RT-AC5300) to route the VPN(NordVPN) to certain MAC Addresses when ever I want to watch the WWE Network. I watch on my Xbox One X for streaming (Series X is not effected with the VPN), iPhone and PC/macOS.
I got kicked April 4th at 2:35am est. that was the first cut off for everyone. Got my refund. Did my re activate and still worked. Never got a refund yet. Talked to WWE Network reps and they told me yea that was the cut off but if you did reactivate then your fine but you still have the Peacock wall in the US. Use a VPN and your golden. I chose Canada since the servers are there are streamable. ASUS Router CFW Merlin with NordVPN routed to my Xbox for streaming is working perfectly.
Those of you using a VPN and in the US, what are you doing for address and payment options? Wonder if they will catch on to this if they see accounts associated with US addresses.
I have ExpressVPN and it'll let me sign up, but haven't tried yet.
Our options will be to get a cable package just to get the network here (hell no!) as they said it's status quo for Canada. Or use a VPN to access Peacock from here and create an account.
I gave the Peacock app a go on my Nvidia Shield TV using NordVPN and it's really hit and miss... Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. To be honest, as much as it saddens me, it may just be time for me to move away from the network... 😢
The last I heard (admittedly over a year ago), the WWE Network did not play well with Chromecast. But, theoretically, yes that would work.
On the flip side, I use the WWE Network on my PS3, 1st-Gen Roku Stick, Roku 3, Smart TV, XBox360, and occasionally on my PC. I like the freedom of being able to use it on any TV in my house (I have 3 kids, and sometimes screen real estate is tough to come by). I figured paying $12 to Shaw Direct for limited access, or about $16 total for Unblock-Us and the US version of the Network was worth the extra few bucks. I also use Unblock-Us for so I can watch Jays games live, as well.
the WWE Network app isn't on the Canadian store. You'll need to change the region setting of the console to USA to download the app. You can change it back to Canada, and the app will receive. updates whenever they are available
Here's how to change the region to USA. Use the same method to change it back to Canada or to look at stores in other regions.
Might I suggest using FlyVPN temporarily to sign up using an American IP address. This way, you won't be tied to a cable company and the Xbox One app will be of use to you. You only need the VPN to sign up for the WWE Network, not to watch after you sign up. You can use Paypal with a debit or credit card to pay each month.
Rogers/Bell/Cogeco username and password can't be used on the Xbox app
You need a DNS service like Unblock-Us and set up the manual DNS address under network and go into settings -> general -> itunes store -> location set to United States.
Don't think it will work without a paid DNS service.
Ah Germany, that makes it tougher. You might have to buy a proxy and have the proxy change your DNS to the United States. "Private Internet Access" is a really cheap proxy ($3.33 per month if you buy a year) and get the WWE Network U.S.
I'm really not sure if Germany has access to the network by regular means.
I use the Samsung Smart TV app with Unblock-Us DNS so it depends on how reliable the quality is and how the On Demand selection is with Telus. If the selection is the same and the quality is more reliable I will switch.
If you use the instructions at , you can get it for free for the week of the PPV. Unblock-Us offers a free week trial, and you can take advantage of the WWE Network offer at the same time.
UnoTelly is dead easy to setup my friend. They have full instructions and so far it's working fine on iOS and PC. Can't try on the PS3 as I can't get the app. Android it won't work as they're being very anal retentive about location checking.
Yeah, except I use UnoTelly who are A) cheaper, and B) support more stuff than UnblockUs.
The Android app checks your location via the GPS in your Android device, so not only do you need DNS mojo you need GPS mojo to use it as well.
HOLA and UnoTelly may become a headache believe me i have had that experience. But, Since i bought PureVPN every thing has become easy like a piece of cake.
I use UnoTelly, and since I'm already a subscriber so I can jump Netflix regions, watch the BBC etc... I don't need to include that as an expense. (UnoTelly incidentally offer a free 8 day trial AND up to 6 months of free service by tweeting about them)
$10 is an amazing deal. I created a US PSN account on my PS3 (I'm in Canada) and downloaded the app and it works great!
Unlocator for me. It works with everything, netflix, hbo, cbs, nbc etc etc and on pretty much all sorts of devices too. Works out about 3 quid a month for that so the Network is costing me about 9.50 a month which is still great value.
I'm using Unlocator, and it works perfectly fine for me in Toronto. I tried using Hola on Chrome and I could barely watch it for like three seconds before it would just stop and have me constantly get the live feed back. I don't mind paying the $4.95 a month for now until it officially launches in Canada
HOLA may become a headache believe me i have had that experience. But, Since i bought PureVPN every thing has become easy like a piece of cake. Just download PureVPN software on your device and get over with all hurdles as well as censorship. Make your live easy with PureVPN. For more details see the link.
You can get unblock us for free.
I'm certain you don't have to pay if you wanna use it on a console. But if you use the DNS on the PC, it asks you to log in.
There's plenty of services that offer the exact same service for free, though. Unlocator is the one I'm using.
So, I'm in the US proper, but I have a VPN which allows me to appear as though I am coming from any number of different countries.
WWE Network works perfectly when I'm not connected to the VPN (duh). It works perfectly when I'm connected as though I am from California (which leads me to believe it should work for you), but it also works as though I am connected from France. That last one doesn't make a ton of sense. I mean, if I check a "where am I?" website which looks up your location via IP, it definitely shows up appropriately (e.g., I'm from France now lol), but Network doesn't seem to care at all.
I guess it's possible they have some magic thing which lets them see through a VPN, but I have absolutely no idea how that could possibly work. That's like some hardcore Papa Shango voodoo there.
The VPN I'm using, by the way is Private Internet Access. You can subscribe to PIA easily, just Google it =)
Another Day One subscriber here.
Technically, they could block access via DNS switching, but I very much doubt they would.
I use UnoTelly, however, as it gives me not only the DNS service, but a free VPN too.
This means that if DNS switching stops working, the VPN definitely will. It also means I can watch on the go with 3G and also on public wifi (such as Openzone or hotel wifi etc) where altering the DNS settings is a no-no.
Weeks trial, and if you tweet about them you get months free. Been using since January. Not paid a cent yet. Much better than Unblock-Us. Stuff I had issues with there I've had no issues with UnoTelly.
October 1st, it was confirmed on Raw by JBL and several other people last month.
I still think the reason it's launching differently to everyone else is because we're going to get fucked and it's going to be a Sky premium channel.
My advise is just to pay for a VPN and the American version of the network, with Unblock-Us and the WWE Network it comes to about £8.20 a month, and there's no way the network will be cheaper than that in the UK. Unblock-Us is super safe and it's let me get the Network on my PS3, PS4, mobile, tablet and laptop with no problems, ever.
I've used Unlocator on my PC/Laptop (trying with 360) to access the network;
They have an ipad guide too, so hopefully this'll be of some use to you
I used Hola when the Network launched but it was absolute crap, than it worked, than it didnt or it worked poorly. Just before Wrestlemania 30 i signed up with the free beta of Unlocator. Now you gotta pay 5 a month but when the Network came available here i stopped using it.
On a PC or Mac I'd recommend Chrome with Zenmate. Works great. Also, once you choose your video or start the live stream you can switch it off and then you don't have to worry about slowdown or laggy internet.
I used Private Internet Access as my vpn, set the location to the US, and then used an app called 'WiFi Spoofer' or something similar. It did only work one for me, and I haven't tried it in a while as I have deactivated my wwe network account.
I got mine working too its a little wonky from time to time but its still good. I have the App downloaded on my 360 but it isnt working yet, I used Unblock-Us service to gain access its 4.99 a month but has a week free trial and officially supports the network.
My guess is that the adapter fails to handshake for the DRM component in the HDMI standards. Normally seen with Blu-ray and other such DRM-ladened content.
You are much better off with a small streaming device like the Amazon FireTV Stick or the Google Chromecast. There are any number of Android-based TV boxes that can work with the WWE Network. These boxes cost under $40 on Amazon.com Something like this LINK I have no connection with this seller I just searched the Amazon site.
