The wwe rly pissed me off with their copyright infrigements
there i was watching the ppv on a stream live and then all of the sudden BAM the stream was taken down when i was watching the smackdown elimination chamber match
luckily i got over it i found a stream just 2 to 3 minutes later and continued to watch the ppv
but seriously that was my highlight of the evening...
anyone else had a similar experience?
i was soooo pissed off at them for taking down that stream...

Sure its annoying to have streams being taken down during live PPVs. But as fans, we shouldn't really be watching PPVs for free. But, to save money, or because we know that most PPVs are not worth what we would pay for them, due to the decrease in quality of matches/storylines, or the preditability of the outcome of the matches, we find a stream. Its been said recently though, that WWE has been cracking down on illegal streams. But I didn't experience a stream closing on me tonight.

how am i supposed to pay if i live in portugal? how am i supposed to watch the ppv in a channel that i do not have online?
we as wwe fans got no other alternative
we could watch videos of the ppv at dailymotion or any other website of the sort but that would require waiting for the next day and that would kill the moment
im glad i got to see at least 98% of the total ppv but that annoyed the hell right outta me

Wait.

You're angry that WWE blocked illegal free streaming of their paid product?

I'm sure WWE will take a credit card number no matter where you live and don't they still run a stream off wwe.com like they do with NXT

yes it is an opinion solely made for the fact that they shut down the stream that pissed me off
as a wwe fan as for someone who enjoys their product to suddenly be slapped like that it certainly pisses me off i kno that they do what it had to be done but i just think that i was an unfortunate one for what it happened...

But remember that internet streams IS illegal. They shut it down because of the Super Bowl. There are some stream sites getting back up.

Streams are illegal and considered pirating and stealing. Streams are not the same as watching a show on television. You might pay a cable bill, but you don't pay for the individual shows. It's called a "Pay Per View" for a reason.

The better example in your case would be if you walked into a restaurant, ate a meal there, and called them douchebags for making you pay.

Don't get me wrong, I hate it when I'll be watching a stream and goes out, but I understand that I can't say anything about because it's stealing.

Precisely. If you PM someone (I pm'd Bodom), guys will be more than happy to point you in the direction of a new thread. If you lose your usual thread, just ask around here on the chat or through PM's.
