Wrestling fans appear to have a new home base as Peacock and the WWE have finalized an agreement that will see the NBCUniversal-owned streaming service become the exclusive home of the WWE Network’s programming in the United States.
On March 18, fast-growing Peacock will debut its WWE content library that includes a 24/7 channel and on-demand content. Going forward, it will also be the sole portal for fans to access the WWE’s pay-per-view showdowns, including WrestleMania and SummerSlam, as well as its original series and archive of past PPV match-ups.
“We are thrilled to further the long-standing and trusted partnership WWE has with NBCUniversal,” says Nick Khan, the WWE’s president and chief revenue officer.
The Peacock partnership will offer a “combination of premium WWE content, live sports, news, films and television programs,” as well as one original documentary each year from 2022, he adds.
