WWE Network’s Peacock Launch Update: Full Archive Available ‘Before SummerSlam’, Limited-Time Sign-Up Offer, More
WWE Network is moving to Peacock, but it appears that the move might take longer than expected.
WWE issued a new update on the migration over to NBC’s Peacock app, which launches on March 18. According to the statement, Peacock will feature “fan-favorite content at launch, including all past WrestleManias leading up to WrestleMania 37.” Despite having a number of shows ready at launch, the transition of the full WWE Network library won’t be ready until much later. The statement issued today claiming the “entire WWE Network archive — including every WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV event in history” will available to stream on demand before SummerSlam.
The standalone WWE Network app will shut down in the United States on April 4 and while the full library won’t be available just yet, there is a silver lining for fans moving over to Peacock. Starting today through April 9, fans can sign up at www.PeacockTV.com/WWE for Peacock Premium for $4.99 a month*, a $5.00/month savings from the $9.99 price.
The full statement is below:
Starting March 18, Peacock will begin rolling out WWE Network content just before WWE Fastlane, the first WWE pay-per-view event on the service. The new WWE destination on Peacock will feature fan-favorite content at launch, including all past WrestleManias leading up to WrestleMania 37 — streaming exclusively on Peacock.
WWE will have a dedicated page on Peacock where fans can browse and access every PPV event in 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; in-ring action with new weekly episodes of NXT the day after air, as well as the 2021 replays of Raw and SmackDown 30 days after air; groundbreaking documentaries, including Undertaker: The Last Ride, WWE 24, and WWE Untold; reality series, including Total Bellas; as well as collections of featured series, topical moments like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Week, and playlists showcasing current Superstars.
Peacock will continually add WWE Network content to the library, making the entire WWE Network archive — including every WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV event in history — available to stream on demand before SummerSlam.
Peacock Premium will be home to all upcoming PPV events and the current seasons of WWE Original shows. In the free tier, Peacock will offer a new WWE channel; select WWE Original shows; reality shows like Miz and Mrs., Total Bellas, and Total Divas; recent in-ring content; and new weekly episodes of select live shows like Raw Talk and WWE’s The Bump, both live and on demand.
When WWE sunsets the existing standalone WWE Network app on April 4, Peacock will be the exclusive streaming home to WWE Network in the U.S. To continue streaming WWE Network content, fans will need to sign up for Peacock. As previously announced, WWE Network, including all PPVs, will be available on Peacock Premium for $4.99 — a $5.00/month savings. Starting today, Peacock is also offering the WWE Universe deeper savings for a limited time — details available at www.PeacockTV.com/WWE.
