The partnership between WWE and Peacock has led to big streaming numbers according to a new report.
Matthew Belloni of Puck reports that more than three million Peacock subscribers have watched WWE content on the streaming platform since it became available in March.
The report goes on to say "more than half of those 3 million subs indicated that they signed up 'because of WWE.'"
Finally, the report states that of the 1.1 million WWE Network subscribers, one million successfully converted to Peacock.
WWE and Peacock announced the merger in January 2021 with content merging beginning on March 18. Peacock has become the home for WWE Premium Events, including the most recent WWE Day 1 event.
In July 2021, WWE President Nick Khan commented on the partnership and increasing numbers by saying, "Since moving to Peacock, viewership of our pay-per-view events have increased with Backlash up 26%, Hell in a Cell up 25%, and Money in the Bank up 46% from their prior-year performance on what was the standalone WWE Network. These viewership numbers are also up considerably from our pre-pandemic WWE Network numbers."
