A streaming service is only as good as the content it offers. NBCUniversal̵
From March 18, the WWE network will be phased out and merged with the Peacock streaming service. Currently, subscribers paying $ 10 a month for $ 5 a month are switching to the Peacock Premium plan. That’s a boon for existing subscribers, as they can access the same content, plus Peacock’s offering, for half the price.
Excited to see @peacockTV become the new home of @WWENetwork in the US, bringing premium @ WWE content (including @WrestleMania !!!) to a much wider audience and providing @WWEUniverse with a wide variety of live sports, news, film & tv! https://t.co/MPzcxjL3IV

Peacock will host weekly in-ring shows, including NXT, NXT UK, and 205 Live, plus repeats of SmackDown and Raw. Subscribers also get access to original WWE series such as Undertaker: The Last Ride, Steve Austin Broken Skull Sessions, WWE 24, and WWE Untold.
In total, NBCUniversal promises 17,000 hours of WWE Network new, original and library programming, with a 24/7 channel and on-demand content. That includes WWE live and pay-per-view (PPV) events, such as WrestleMania and SummerSlam, without extra costs. You can of course still watch PPV events without subscribing to Peacock.
The switchover will begin on March 18, and NBCUniversal says it will share more details on how the switchover of WWE Network subscribers will work at a later date.
