NBCU’s Peacock Gets WWE Network’s Exclusive Rights in the United States

Variety recently reported that NBCUniversal and WWE have reached a new deal that will allow the former to broadcast WWE Network’s US library on Peacock in the United States.

It’s being reported that Fastlane will be the first-ever WWE pay-per-view that will be available to stream on Peacock.

As of now, Peacock Premium costs $4.99 (with ads) and their Peacock Premium Plus costs $9.99 (without ads). Both plans will allow access to all of WWE Network’s content that’s available for American wrestling fans.

Peacock’s chief revenue officer and EVP, Rick Cordella said:

“NBCUniversal has a long-standing relationship with WWE that began nearly 30 years ago with ‘Monday Night Raw’ on USA. WWE has always tapped into the cultural zeitgeist with spectacular live events and larger-than-life characters, and we are thrilled to be the exclusive home for WWE Network and its millions of fans across the country. WWE Network is a transformative addition to the platform and complements Peacock’s massive catalog of iconic movies and shows, as well as the best live news and sports, from NBCUniversal and beyond.”

Some time ago, WWE made a similar deal with Sony Sports Network India that allows Indian fans to stream WWE content on SonyLIV. The on-demand video service recently launched a WWE pack for Indian fans as well that will allow fans to stream all of WWE’s show in addition to 29000+ hours worth of wrestling content.
