THE STREAK IS OVER




What Is FloSlam?

FloSlam is an online streaming service similar to WWE Network, dedicated to independent wrestling and hosted by the FloSports family of Networks.

How Much Does It Cost?

FloSlam is available for $19.99 per-month or an annual fee of $150. The annual fee includes access to every FloSports channel that exists, so if you like grappling or real wrestling or rodeo or cheerleading or whatever, you should probably do the Annual.

Which companies are on FloSlam?

As of 11/28/16, the WWN family of shows (Evolve, Shine, FIP, etc.), PWX, and Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore. Also some other poo poo I've never heard of with people I've never heard of.

LOL WWN iPPV's!!! Does it work?

Yes. Thus far it has worked very well. I watched the first event they did live, which was a Shine show, and two Evolve events live, and the quality far surpasses anything WWN has had before. Whether it's worth the cost or not is up to you I guess, but the technical side of it has been exceptional thus far.

Are there old events on here?

Yes, it's hosting the libraries for these promotions, which are being put up gradually. Good luck finding poo poo though because the interface blows. Right now it's organized via a blog entry which hosts links to videos. Yay!

So how do I watch?

FloSports has apps on the Roku and newer generation Apple TV's. If you have neither of those, I guess watch on your computer or tablet or whatever. I have a newer Apple TV and it works great. I also have an older-gen Apple TV in my bedroom and it works great airplaying to that as well.

Should I sign up?

If you're someone who was routinely buying Evolve shows, absolutely. If you were thinking about getting into Evolve but weren't sure because of spending all the money on individual shows, I'd say look at a busy month like December with the HoH shows and the two Evolve events and give it a one-month go to see if you like it. I did the annual fee thing because I was probably spending about $100 a year on Evolve anyway so I figured why not. Thus far, I do not feel like I haven't gotten my money's worth. The streams are great quality, they haven't died on me once, replays go up fast and the libraries are being added in what I would consider a reasonable amount of time.

Final Verdict - If you watched a lot of Evolve/Shine before, you should do it. If you didn't watch that much before, you should probably hold off until you see if any other promotions you like get added to the service.

What's Coming Up?

It's useless.


They're looking into the audio and video sync issue in Chrome. Seems to be ok when running Firefox if you continually have the issue where it gets out of sync. Refreshing fixes this usually.

So far 73 has been very good.

Currently right now Firefox and Edge (lol) don't have the live video/audio sync issues. They're still looking into the problems with Chrome.

HOH 21 was rough to get through. Lots of tiring one dimensional comedy spots, ECW tropes (to be expected yes), and pretty meh matches. Cross vs Nese is worth checking out though. Callihan vs Hardcore Holly wasn't too bad either surprisingly.

How are you going to form a sports-based startup in 2016 without a mobile app

It's almost as if someone were buying up streaming rights in order to sell them

Interesting stip in the current WWE signing everyone climate. There's signing rumours about two people in the match.
