How to watch CMLL on Terra

The most important bit: THERE IS NO LINK TO THE SHOW UNTIL THE SHOW IS LIVE. This is NOT uStream or something along those lines with a static page you go to wait for the stream. Terra posts a new page for each stream – same as if it was a news article – and that page is not posted until a minute or so before the bell time.

CMLL Anniversary show starts at 8:30 pm Central Time. (Helpful time conversion page.) Terra.mx will post a link to the stream a couple minutes before. Action will not start until around 5-7 minutes after, so you should have plenty of time to find it.

Terra does not post the shows directly after they’ve aired. They do often (but not always) turn up in the TerraTV section of their website some days after they are. I am efforting to record the show, but since I will actually be at the show, I will not be able to monitor the recording to see if it’s working. I believe other people will be trying to record and something should turn up eventually.

The Easiest Way To Find The Stream

Go to https://twitter.com/terradeportesmx (or follow then on Twitter) shortly after the show starts. They will always post a link directly to the stream, and they will repeat the link and share results during the duration of the show. CMLL’s offical Twitter (@CMLL_Oficial) will also RT the link during the night, but sometimes not at the start of the night.

The Sure Way To Find The Stream

1) Go to www.terra.mx

2) You may get a pop up asking if you’re sure you want to go to the Mexico site. You can check on the box next to “No mostrar mas este aviso” to stop this from coming up in the future. Click on “SEGUIR EN TERRA MEXICO” to continue onto the Terra Mexico site.

3) Once the stream is live (usually with in a minute or two of show time, but sometimes later), a link to the show will appear on the Eventos bar, about a third of the way down the screen. CMLL is usually listed as something like “Lucha Libre del CMLL”. Click on either the name or the picture.terraselectionbar

4) The stream page will automatically load and usually start the feed. (If not, there will be a play button on screen to click.)

There is a stop/play button in the bottom left of the screen, a volume button, and a video quality selection. “Alta” is the highest quality feed, “Baja” is the lowest. If the video starts to hesitate or buffer, try switching to a different feed.

“AUMENTAR” is in the bottom right of the screen, and allows you to watch full screen. Hit ESC to escape out of full screne.

What Does That Orange Circle Mean?

If you see that, it means the video player is having an issue buffering. It could be a problem with your connection – try changing the feed quality (Alta/Baja) to restart the feed. It also can mean the feed has died entirely, which does happen one every other show. It’s usually back within a couple minutes, but you may need to refresh or change feeds to pick it up again.
