If you missed it, you might not know that the WWE Network in the US is folding. The WWE signed an exclusive deal with Peacock for streaming rights to their content. Starting March 18th, Peacock is rolling out WWE Network content. This is conveniently just before the Fastlane event on March 21st. WWE is going to have it’s own dedicated page on the Peacock app or website depending on what you use.
At launch, you’ll have access to every WWE PPV event from the last calendar year, current or most recent season episodes of WWE original series Steve Austin’s The Broken Skull Sessions, WWE Chronicle, and WWE Icons. You’ll get the weekly episodes of NXT the day after their air, as well as RAW and Smackdown episodes 30 days after air.
The WWE documentary library is also heading to Peacock with classics like the recent Undertaker: The Last Ride, WWE 24, and WWE: Untold coming.
Now, if you’re wondering, “hey what about the rest of the PPV and event library?”. Don’t fret, they’re continually adding content to the library, with every WWE, WCW, and ECW event in history available to stream before Summerslam this year.
Peacock Premium Is The Place For WWE PPV Events
That means every event, like Wrestlemania and Summerslam. In the free tier for Peacock, you’ll still have access to select WWE original shows, reality shows like Miz and Mrs., Total Bellas, and Total Divas. You’ll also get recent in-ring content, and new weekly episodes of select live shows like RAW Talk and The Bump.
The WWE Network app sunsets on April 4th, which means that Peacock is the only place to get all this content. Luckily for current WWE Network subscribers, the price is lower for Peacock Premium, $4.99 a month, with the extra $5.00 a month to get ad-free content. Peacock is also offering a deeper saving for WWE fans right here.
So think of it like this. Either you pay $5 less a month and get ads, plus all the other great content that Peacock provides like Champions League Soccer and other sports, and a huge library of shows and movies, or you pay the same price, with all that great content, and you don’t get ads.
For current WWE Network subscribers, it might just be the best deal in streaming.
