Peacock is about to grow their catalog of titles. After acquiring The Office from Netflix in what seemed to be one of the biggest deals in the streaming wars, today, Peacock fired another shot.
In 2014, the WWE launched their own network to the home of their Pay Per View evens such as the pop culture phenomenon Wrestlemania, the network launched at 9.99 a month. And after 7 years of the network will be shutting down and the Peacock will become the home for all things WWE including their special events. The first special event to stream on the service will be WWE Fastlane on March 21st. The move will take place a few weeks earlier on the 8th.
The deal was struck for the sum of over 1 billion.
Rumors have floated since last year of Vince trying to move the network to other streaming services such as ESPN+, but talks, but the WWE and NBC Universal have worked together for years. The partnership between the two companies makes the most sense with the climate of the entertainment. In less than a year, the Peacock is the official home for The Office, WWE, and possibly the NHL and NASCAR.
Peacock premium is 4.99 a month and a no commercials version is 9.99
