WWE Fastlane,, was the sea trial. The event was broadcast on both the WWE Network and Peacock. On April 4, the WWE network was effectively deactivated for US users. All of the network’s content – that’s a lot of content – will be ported to Peacock by the end of August, and Peacock is now the place to watch all of the live WWE pay-per-view events.
Can I transfer my WWE network subscription to Peacock?
Unfortunately, the subscription won’t automatically transfer, so you’ll have to do this the old-fashioned way: by taking 45 seconds to sign up for a new streaming service.
Peacock has three tiers: Free, Premium ($ 5), and Premium Plus ($ 10). WWE pay-per-views require you to purchase from a Premium account. That’s good news, because you will find that such a subscription is half the monthly cost of the WWE network. For now, there is even better news, just like NBC($ 2.50 per month) especially for WWE Network subscribers.
Some WWE content is also coming to Peacock Free. That includes reality shows like Total Divas, Total Bellas and Miz and Mrs., as well as Raw Talk and The Bump talk shows. NBC notes that “recent in-ring content” will also be coming to Peacock’s Free tier, but it’s unclear what that means at this point.
What is WrestleMania’s weekly schedule?

The entire WWE network is coming to Peacock
Yes, but not in the beginning. WWE Network content filtered on Peacock on March 18, with more to be added. As of March 18, Peacock will have:
- Any pay-per-view event in the past calendar year.
- Episodes from NXT the day after TV broadcast, episodes from Raw and SmackDown 30 days after TV broadcast.
- Recent episodes of Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, as well as WWE Chronicle and WWE Icons.
- Select documentaries including Undertaker: The Last Ride and episodes of WWE 24 and WWE Untold.
- Every previous WrestleMania.
NBC promises to get the rest of the WWE Network content through SummerSlam by the end of August.
What if I don’t live in the US?
You don’t have to worry! For now, the move will only affect users in the US. We’ll have to see if WWE seeks similar deals – NBC reportedly pays WWE $ 1 billion for network content – in other countries.
