Peacock shares more details today about how WWE’s massive content stream is incorporated later this month when the WWE Network becomes part of the NBCUniversal streaming service.
Like Announced in January, The new WWE Portal will be launched on Peacock starting March 18th. The WWE Network standalone app in the US will close after a few weeks on April 4. This means that current subscribers will be able to use the legacy app for the upcoming WWE fast line Pay-per-view this month if they wanted. But come on WrestleMania 37, Which occurs on April 10 and 11, peacocks will be the only option. There’s no way to transfer a WWE Network subscription to Peacock, but the company does offer wrestling fans Exclusive deal To help ease movement.
He will look like Peacock but feels familiar to WWE fans
As for how Peacock plans to showcase WWE programming, you’ll notice a new “WWE” tab in the browse section. Once this is selected, you will be presented with the usual rounds of featured shows and organized events. This is Peacock’s user interface, but the two companies are in constant touch about what content to highlight.
Peacock said it would eventually be the home of everything available on the WWE Network today – but the transition wouldn’t be instant. There will be some omissions noticeable in the early days. To launch on March 18th, Peacock subscribers will have access to the following:
Every PPV event in the last calendar year; Episodes of the current or most recent season of the WWE Original Series Steve Austin Broken Skull SessionsAnd the WWE ChronicleAnd the And the WWE Icons; Inside the episode with new weekly episodes of NXT The day after the airAnd the Plus the 2021 replays for Raw And the Smackdown 30 days after air; Groundbreaking documentaries, incl The Undertaker: The last rideAnd the WWE 24And the And the WWE Indescribable; Reality series, incl Total fine; Plus sets of blockbuster series, thematic moments like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Week, and playlists featuring current Superstars.
You’ll wait a few months to get all the pay-per-view offers
Here’s the bad news: WWE’s massive pay-per-view basement for WWE, WCW, and ECW won’t be ready for Day One. Instead, Peacock promises to provide all of this content “before SummerSlamThis means that professional wrestling fans may go several weeks without any convenient way to witness past events because the WWE Network app will be US history. (The international version will continue to operate just as it does today.)
The exception to this is WrestleMania; All previous WrestleMania events will be available at launch on Peacock.
Match marks are nothing more
Another potential disappointment for frequent WWE Network viewers is that PPVs and On Demand will not be segmented using “tags” to separate them into several different easy-to-skip segments between them. Instead, each of them will be just one long stream. (Peacock tells me he’s working on visual peel-off bar previews to help viewers find what they want when fast forwarding via WWE videos.)
The search will not be as comprehensive as it was on the WWE Network
Finally, the hunt for Peacock won’t be as powerful as it was on the WWE Network. While the WWE Network would let you search for a specific match or WWE superstar in the search bar, that wouldn’t be the case on Peacock – at least initially. This is something fans can expect in the coming months. But even then, it might not quite match what was possible on the WWE Network.
Get a discount as WWE moves to Peacock
Peacock admits that more work needs to be done to please the fanatics in the WWE Network. To help sweeten the bowl, Will offer an exclusive discount for WWE fans. They can get four months of Peacock Premium for a flat $ 9.99. That breaks down into $ 2.50 a month. Peacock Premium usually costs $ 4.99 per month, which is still less than the longtime WWE Network subscription $ 9.99 per month.
There have always been tag team concessions on Peacock and WWE, and I think I’ve covered the hottest things fans care about here. Crowding a tailored service for a very specific audience in a more popular streaming app comes with challenges. Also remember that we are still talking about the launch test; It is possible that Peacock will come back and add some of that functionality if customers are candid enough. I also hope the other WWE Network features (like offline downloads) never become a reality on Peacock.
