    NJ World NJPW World - The NJPW Network~!


    New Japan Pro Wrestling just announced their Network, NJPW World~!

    Have access to live streaming of future NJPW events like the G1 Classic, Fantasticamania and the biggest show in professional wrestling, Wrestlekingdom~!

    Watch VOD matches from NJPW archives dating back to 1973~!

    No commitment, you can subscribe for just one month at a time~!

    and best of all, it's just 999 YEN~!

    Now if you're a legit pro wrestling fan like Tommy Rage, I'm sure you'll be subscribing to this fantastic service. How can you argue with that price with Wrestlekingdom around the corner. I'll be subscribing tonight, and why can I subscribe tonight, because it's available in England right away~! Wow what a way to treat your customers fairly~!

    Awesome to see that NJPW followed through with their Network idea. If they have an in depth catalog on demand and some of the big shows of 2015 are offered for free, it'd be more than worth that insanely low price tag. In fact, 999 yen is less than 9.99 USD.

    Admittedly, the one thing that could deter me from getting NJPW World is the lack of being a Roku channel. I don't really watch anything on my computer, so it'd be a bit of a pain in the ass to have this be a computer only type service.

    Still, I'd be interested in hearing more about this as the days pass.

    I'd lay down 9.99 for just a backlog of All Japan. Not too "in-the-know" with Puro since Misawa died, but have heard NJPW is where it's at these days and Puro matches always rock and would be cool if they subtitle the commentary for the English speaking fans to get acquainted with the product.

    Details are sketchy because the conference was only a few hours ago so not everything's been translated, but apparently there might well be original content. Yano's DVDs better be on.

    no total divas or special Olympics though which would of been a real draw.

    The price point of 999 yen is hilarious though.

    I actually thought that this might be some kind of spoof or something lol. I'm happy for the NJPW fans to get this. I think this is good for wrestling as a whole. Maybe this is the next frontier of the wrestling business? Rather than competing on TV, they compete online? Although, I'm not sure if there's that much to compete with, but rather just providing the best wrestling experience for fans. This is a good day for pro-wrestling

    Look who showed up late to the party.

    The Japs, that's who.


    I've been accused of being a lot of things, inarticulate ain't one of them

    I might get it just to annoy Tommy and Ken.

    Awesome news for Puro fans. Original content is overrated. Besides the best stuff ends up on DVD anyway.

    Re: Calling all legit pro wrestling fans - The NJPW Network~!

    Here's a line by line translation of the "create account" page for http://njpwworld.com :

    First line: email address
    Second: confirm email

    Third: password
    Fourth: password confirmation

    Fifth: "Secret" question
    Sixth: answer

    Seventh: Username

    Eighth: Birthdate

    Ninth: Sex (first is male, second is female)

    Next step:

    Click the box under the text, and make sure you click the BOTTOM box that says confirm. The confirmation page will then come up, and you click "next" obviously. Then the payment page will pop up. Top option is credit card. Click it.

    Then on the credit card page you will have the following fields, that should be pretty intuitive even if you don't know Japanese:

    card number
    expiration date
    security number

    Then you should be good to go after that

    Wonder what the old content will be like.

    I haven't watched NJ for like 2 years so guess I'm not legit enough of a fan. Cool that they are doing this though.

    If I watched the product(Like Ed does with the WWE) I would get it but Its not a product that I'm interested so I will decline, although I wish them well.

    I'm in. Only took a minute and no need to create a false American address just to do so. I'd recommend using Google chrome as it translates the majority of the text for you.

    Watched a couple of matches already, good quality streams, better than the ones I'm used to watching. Not having the WWE Network, I'm not sure how it compares at all, but I'm impressed.

    I'm not sure if this will work, but see if you can view the content listing without signing up:

    http://njpwworld.com/tag/year

    The archives goes back to 1973 at the moment, but the further you go back, the less there is. Although strangely there's more 90s and 80s than 00s. Inoki has the most matches up. Apparently every Dome Show is on, but everythings split into matches only it's hard to confirm that. Hopefully they'll eventually upload full tournaments.

    I haven't really got it for the original content, that's the nice plus. I've got it so that I can watch the upcoming shows in good quality. The fact I can get the G1 next year for just over a fiver when it would of been almost pushing 100 quid for the whole tournament is fantastic value.

    Use google chrome would be the easiest way. Here's how mine version looks, the banner with Captain New Japan that splits into Age (years), Venue etc is how I navigate.
