WWE Network Moving To Peacock – WWE announced today that they have signed a multi-year agreement with Peacock, which will give the new platform exclusive streaming rights to the WWE Network in the United States.
Peacock will launch the WWE Network on Thursday, March 18. This will kick off the roll-out of more than 17,000 hours of new, original and library programming on-demand, and the live channel. The WWE Fastlane event will be the first pay-per-view to stream on Peacock, on March 21.
The new deal will also include one annual signature WWE Network documentary for Peacock, beginning in 2022.
The new WWE Network premium price point will be $4.99 on Peacock, which is a savings of $5 per month. The ad-free version, Peacock Premium Plus, will cost $9.99 per month.
“We are thrilled to further the long-standing and trusted partnership WWE has with NBCUniversal,” said WWE President and Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan in a press release. “Peacock is an innovative platform that will enable us to showcase our most significant events, including WrestleMania, and provide the extraordinary entertainment our fans have come to expect with the combination of premium WWE content, live sports, news, films, and television programs.”
As seen below, Stephanie McMahon issued a letter today and said the WWE Network will be a perfect complement to the incredible catalog that Peacock has amassed since launching in 2020. Stephanie also said WWE and NBCU consider the Peacock – WWE Network partnership to be a natural extension of their near-30-year relationship.
I’m excited to share that this morning WWE and NBCUniversal announced a multi-year agreement that will make Peacock the exclusive home to WWE Network in the United States.
WWE was one of the first to launch a SVOD service, WWE Network, in 2014 to super-serve our most passionate fans with WWE’s most premium content as well as an incredible library of in-ring and original programming that has grown over the last seven years. Since launching last year, Peacock has amassed an incredible catalog of iconic movies and TV shows, along with the best of live news and sports, to which WWE Network will be a perfect complement.
WWE and NBCU have been partners for nearly 30 years, and we consider this to be a natural extension of our long-standing relationship. Peacock will enable WWE to showcase our most significant events, including WrestleMania, which was previously available on WWE Network for $9.99 per month, to Peacock’s 26 million subscribers for $4.99 per month and for free to the millions of Comcast and Cox homes across the country, helping to better serve and grow our global fanbase.
We are thrilled to bring WWE Network to Peacock beginning March 18, and to continue to create best-in-class sports entertainment content that will not only put smiles on people’s faces, but provide our fans with an experience worthy of their passion.
