After a seven-year run, the WWE Network is moving it’s gigantic streaming library to NBC’s new service, Peacock. In addition to the streaming library, all their live pay-per-view events are heading over as well, including Wrestlemania. The multi-year deal continues a thirty year long relationship between the two companies. WWE Network launches on Peacock on March 18th.
What does this mean for current Network subscribers? Well, if you’re outside of the US, nothing. In the US, however, you’ll have to move your $9.99 a month subscription over to Peacock. So it’s a lateral move in price, but you also get access to all the content that Peacock has to offer. I’d say that’s a pretty easy step up. In addition to WWE, Peacock is adding the content from NBC’s regional sports network, NBCSN, which is folding later this year.
This announcement might look scary, but for WWE fans, it’s really just you getting all the NBC content from Peacock for the same price that you’re paying for the Network.
So, what do you think of this move for the WWE Network in the US? Are you going to move over to Peacock for the WWE library of content?
