seems that dish has decided to offer WWE on a case by case basis....

With WWE set to launch its own network Monday (Feb. 24), the topic of cable providers continuing to carry their pay-per-view programming has come into question. WWE is offering its pay-per-view shows as part of the network, which costs $9.99 monthly.




Dish Network has decided to stop carrying WWE pay-per-views for the time being, beginning with Sunday's (Feb. 23) "Elimination Chamber." With the WWE Network not launching until the day after, that leaves DISH subscribers without a way to tune in, other than buying the pay-per-view online.




In a statement to Zap2it, DISH says: "WWE has chosen to launch a 24/7 online network, without its TV partners, that includes all of its pay-per-view events. As WWE enters the increasingly fragmented media world by themselves, DISH will continue to consider the value of WWE pay-per-view on an event by event basis.

"DISH continues to provide a variety of WWE programming, including 'WWE Raw' on USA, 'WWE Smackdown' on Syfy, 'WWE Main Event' on Ion and 'WWE Total Divas" on E!. At this time, WWE pay-per-view events are not available on DISH."




Additionally, DISH support writes on its Facebook page, in response to a question, "DISH will not offer the 'WWE Elimination Chamber' PPV on 2/23. WWE is not willing to adjust their PPV costs to satellite and cable companies, which is unfair to their customers. We need to re-focus our efforts to support partners that better serve DISH customers. Other satellite and cable companies, including DIRECTV, have also expressed they may no longer provide WWE PPV events in the future."




Currently, all other major cable providers are scheduled to offer "Elimination Chamber."




UPDATE: WWE has issued a statement to Zap2it, reading: "WWE is pleased that the majority of our cable and satellite Pay-Per-View distributors are giving our fans an option to purchase traditional Pay-Per-Views as we prepare to launch WWE Network on Monday, February 24. Unfortunately, DISH will not be doing so. We hope DISH will reconsider for this Sunday's 'Elimination Chamber' Pay-Per-View event and especially for 'WrestleMania 30'."

as far as last nights UFC from what others are posting it was a seeder/ server issue and from what we've seen on the last couple of PPV's it probably wont be as reliable as it was before.
