Wrestling fans will have a new way to stream WWE Network starting in March. However, it seems the company has signed a multi-year deal that will officially make it exclusive to NBC's Peacock streaming service. The final pay-per-view events on the current standalone WWE Network app will be the Royal Rumble on January 31 and the Elimination Chamber on February 21.

WWE struck gold earlier this afternoon with the announcement that NBC Universal has purchased the rights to the "WWE Network", bringing the WWE Network to NBC's Peacock streaming service starting in March. Peacock will launch the WWE Network on March 18th 2021. 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.

Vallance agreed saying, "I don't think this virus is going anywhere", he said. "It's going to be around, probably, forever". The corresponding statement was made by Prime Minister Boris Johnson at a press conference .

WWE content (including upcoming live events such as WrestleMania and SummerSlam) will be available on Peacock for $4.99 a month with ads. "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". There is a $9.99 tier for fans that want an ad-free experience.

Both WWE and NBCUniversal will share details about how existing WWE network subscribers will be migrated to Peacock in the coming weeks.
