Yep. I'm not really enthused with the current product, and WWE cancelled all the original shows I liked besides Table For 3. The archives have always been the main reason I subscribed and that's becoming more and more the case each month.

This morning I received an electronic mailing from my good friends at the wwe network because they were concerned I hadn’t used the network in a few weeks(actually it’s more like 2 months) fearing I must have forgotten my password and they implored me to try logging in to make sure my info still works so I don’t miss all the great action this Sunday at TLC and they requested that I e-mail them as to why I haven’t used the network recently.I’m not interested in the current product including ppv’s and they don’t add old stuff that frequently especially stuff that I haven’t seen to death I’ve been gifted a year of the network by a comrade of mine but I won’t be using it until either the current product changes drastically(which isn’t likely) or they add some old stuff that I’m interested in.

I've had the network all year and the only things I've watched of the current product is the Royal Rumble match and Wrestlemania. I'd love them to introduce a separate cheaper subscription for archive only content.
I'm pretty much the opposite. I only subscribe for whenever a current PPV interests me and even when I do I usually can't be assed to watch anything from the archives. In part because I can only handle so much wrestling at a time, it's not at all something I can happily watch every day of the week even if it's good.

Honestly if I could get the Network for like 4.99 a month instead of 9.99 and all I got was the archives I think I'd do that. I know 5 bucks a month extra for all the live ppvs isn't bad but I just really don't care about current WWE. I use the network to watch mostly stuff from 1985-2000. I enjoyed legends round table, Story Time, Legends with JBL, and some of the podcast stuff but really I just want the old ppvs and weekly shows.
Why we keep begging for more. We want WCW Saturday Night, Superstars, Challenge, Heat, Shotgun et al not just for nostalgia and relive the history, but because it’s ten times better than the current product. If the Network was only current, subscriber base would look like the crowd at a SmackDown taping.
Some of the PPVs from 97 and 98 are ROUGH to watch. I listen to the Prichard podcast so any time they do a PPV show from like 98 I cringe b/c the undercard is such a mess.
But yeah, I do keep the Network for the historical stuff, and just watch NXT Takeover and the PPVs.
I think Yes will be everyone's answer, the new content is simply a bonus for when you're bored
What a hilariously sweeping statement.
Having spent the first fifteen or so years of my fandom with PPVs either inaccessible or prohibitively expensive, and my only access to weekly TV being either Heat on 4 or censored Saturday morning Smackdown on Sky One, I still get a thrill from getting to see a PPV even if it's the day after.
And at ten quid a month, even if I only watched one PPV a month, that's still roughly the same that buying the big four on Sky Box Office would be.
