Multiple WWE Network users are getting an error message “stream limit exceeded” when logging into accounts simultaneously on multiple devices. With WWE announcing performance numbers on the 10th it makes sense for WWE to crackdown on account sharing to get their subscriber numbers more concurrent with how many people are actually watching. Plus this could help with WWE Network performance during live pay per views as multiple streams from the same user can slam the servers.

Here is what the WWE help article says on the 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 updated its terms of service in regards to the WWE Network and sharing accounts. Here is what they say:

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.

I would not be surprised if WWE doesn’t announce a family plan where for a little extra money you can stream simultaneously on multiple devices in the same household. Netflix has a plan where you pay a nominal fee for four streams at a time

In other network news, The Slammy Awards category has been removed from the WWE Network Catalog. The more modern versions of the WWE award show have been added to The Raw Replay section while unfortunately the 80s versions are now no longer on the service.

Rich Bocchini, who appeared on camera as Rich Brennan, doing commentary for WWE NXT and Smackdown in the past as well as backstage interviews, is no longer with WWE, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

Bocchini was a lifelong fan who had a background in sports broadcasting who worked as a news anchor in Texas before joining WWE in 2014. He had briefly joined The Smackdown announcing team last year but was removed when Mauro Ranallo was hired.

There’s no word yet regarding details of his departure.
