The latest service preparing to enter the streaming wars Wednesday will feature WWE programming.
In a Tuesday story on Variety, NBCUniversal’s Peacock service announced a total of 20,000 hours for premium subscribers with 100 of those hours being WWE content available in August. While they didn’t list everything that will make up that 100 hours, series like WWE Untold, Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, and compilations like John Cena’s Best WrestleMania Matches were given as examples. Recent editions of WWE Raw will not be part of the premium service.
USA Network, the home of Raw for decades, is owned by NBCUniversal. WWE re-upped with the conglomerate in 2018 for a five year deal worth $1.3 billion.
Similar to the WWE Network, Peacock will also have a free tier, but there was no WWE programming listed. The service will be available everywhere consumers get their traditional streaming services with the exception of Roku or Amazon Fire TV.
