Report: No More Match Markers, Scaled Down Search Feature When WWE Network Moves To Peacock

On Monday afternoon, WWE and Peacock provided details on the upcoming merger. WWE Network will shut down in the United States on April 4 and the library of content will slowly transition to Peacock.

The press release stated, "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."

The Verge has additional details on the merger, reporting that there will be no more match markers on events. Fans can currently skip to certain segments or matches when watching classic events, but on Peacock, events will be uploaded as one long video.

Additionally, the search feature won't be as comprehensive, at least not initially. Fans have complained in the past that the current search feature on WWE Network already has issues in narrowing down or organizing exactly what they are looking for.

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.

WWE Network content will officially be live on Peacock beginning March 18.

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