Nick Khan Discusses WWE Network Moving To Peacock: We Drop The Price And Add Their Tech Support

WWE Network is set to migrate over to Peacock beginning March 18 with the Network app set to shut down in the United States on April 4.

WWE put out a press release on Monday detailing the move, saying, "Peacock will continually add WWE Network content to the library, making the entire WWE Network archive—including every WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV event in history—available to stream on-demand before SummerSlam."

Speaking to the Associated Press, WWE President Nick Khan discussed the deal and why it made sense for WWE.

“The big question internally was how much can you invest and keep pace with the technology? It would be a massive investment. We can drop the price in half (WWE Network was $9.99 per month, while Peacock will be $4.99 per month) and add their technical support. Ultimately it became a no brainer, especially with their reach," said Khan.

The Verge reported on Monday that there will be no more match markers on Peacock and the search feature won't be as comprehensive.

As previously noted in the press release, WWE fans can sign-up for Peacock Premium for $9.99 over four months, which comes out to $2.50 per month.

Fightful will continue to update fans on the transition as more details are known.
