While the log-in problem for Xbox 360 users was fixed, some users still have issues with the digital service.

The issue mainly deals with missing content as a number of WWE, WCW and ECW pay-per-views aren't showing up. For most users on other devices every PPV shows up but Xbox 360 users aren't seeing that.

Another update should be coming for the digital video service to fix this issue, which will hopefully be fixed by the time April 6 comes and WrestleMania 30 takes place.

Earlier this week, the WWE Network streamed yet another live event, this time it was a taping of their ION Television show "Main Event." The show ran without too many digital kinks and shows good signs of the network's streaming advancement.

The network will be testing out its live stream capabilities for the next month or so to see how well the stream works. They will do this by streaming various events live like "Main Event," according to Examiner.com.

Mainly, the company will be looking to fix any problems the live stream has before WrestleMania 30.

The company may have made the decision after last Thursday's live two-hour special showcasing the company's new talent.

From most reports, the special didn't go as well as planned. While the first hour went off without a hitch, toward the end of the second hour many subscribers began to complain about technical difficulties.

The company ended up releasing an email to subscribers addressing the situation and told the fans that they will continue to work out the kinks on the digital service.

"During tonight's live NXT ArRIVAL special, we unfortunately experienced technical difficulties, which are to be expected when launching a new digital network," the company said in the email. "We will work aggressively to solve these glitches and deliver quality service. The complete event will be available on-demand overnight."

Making sure all parts of the digital network is a big goal for the company since so much money is invested in the WWE Network.

Newsday reported that the network is a big investment in the company's future. In addition, the company announced a fourth-quarter operating loss of $12.2 million because of the investments in the network launch so they need the channel to be successful.

WWE Chief Financial Officer George Barrios said he expects the company to have a $12-$15 million loss in the first quarter of 2014 based in part on the impact of the network launch.

While subscribers can view other network programming, they will also get access to all 12 monthly WWE pay-per-views, all for $9.99 per month.

WWE is telling fans to tweet their technical issues or questions to @AskWWENetwork on Twitter.
