Do I need to cancel WWE Network for Peacock?
As of August 1st, 2020, WWE Network is no longer required to sign up for Peacock. You can now watch all your favorite WWE content on Peacock with a FREE account.
What is Peacock?
Peacock is NBCUniversal’s new streaming service that launched in April 2020. The service offers a variety of TV shows, movies, and live sports, along with exclusive content from NBC, Universal Pictures, and Dreamworks Animation. Peacock is available on a variety of devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android, and iOS devices.
What does Peacock offer?
As of July 2020, WWE Network is no longer available on Peacock. All WWE content has been moved to Peacock Premium, which is a separate subscription service.
Peacock offers a variety of content, including live and on-demand programming, movies, and more. Peacock Premium costs $4.99/month or $49.99/year for access to all content, including WWE Network.
How is Peacock different from WWE Network?
As of July 2020, WWE Network is no longer available on Peacock. Peacock is a streaming service from NBCUniversal that offers a variety of live and on-demand programming. While it does feature some sports content, it is not focused on wrestling like WWE Network was.
Why would I want to switch to Peacock?
If you’re a fan of professional wrestling, then you’re probably well aware of WWE Network. It’s a streaming service that offers on-demand and live programming, as well as a huge library of past events, for $9.99/month. But with NBCUniversal’s own streaming service, Peacock, now available to wrestling fans, you might be wondering if it’s time to cancel WWE Network and make the switch.
Peacock offers three different tiers of service: Free, Premium ($4.99/month), and Premium Plus ($9.99/month). The biggest difference between the three is that the free version has ads, while the paid versions do not. But if you compare WWE Network’s $9.99/month price tag to Peacock Premium Plus’s $9.99/month price tag, there are some other key differences to consider:
-WWE Network offers a 7-day free trial; Peacock does not
-WWE Network has over 10,000 hours of on-demand content; Peacock has over 15,000 hours
-WWE Network has live programming; Peacock does not
-Peacock has NBC Sports content; WWE Network does not
So if you’re looking for more content and don’t mind watching ads, then switching to Peacock could make sense. But if you want ad-free content and appreciate WWE Network’s live programming offerings, then you might want to stick with it for now.
What if I don’t want to switch to Peacock?
WWE Network subscribers who do not wish to switch to Peacock will need to cancel their WWE Network subscriptions before Monday, April 5 in order to avoid being automatically charged for Peacock.
How do I cancel my WWE Network subscription?
If you’re a fan of professional wrestling, you may be wondering whether you need to cancel your WWE Network subscription in order to watch Peacock. Here’s what you need to know.
As of July 2020, WWE Network is still its own separate streaming service. You can’t watch WWE Network content on Peacock, and there’s no indication that this will change in the future. So if you want to keep watching WWE programming, you’ll need to maintain your WWE Network subscription.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy wrestling on Peacock. The new service does offer a number of wrestling-related shows and movies, including some from WWE Studios. And if you’re looking for live wrestling action, Peacock also carries select events from Ring of Honor Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. So there’s still plenty of great content to check out even if you don’t have a WWE Network subscription.
How do I sign up for Peacock?
To sign up for Peacock, visit their website and select the plan you want. You can sign up for a free plan that includes some content, or a paid premium plan with more content. If you have a cable or satellite TV provider, you may be able to get a discount on the premium plan.

What’s next for WWE Network?
After seven years, WWE Network is finally shutting down.
On July 16, 2020, WWE Network will no longer be available as a standalone streaming service. Instead, it will become an integral part of Peacock, NBCUniversal’s new streaming service.
WWE Network has been a great success since it launched in 2014, but the time has come for it to join forces with Peacock. This move will give WWE fans even more ways to watch their favorite shows and events.
If you’re a current WWE Network subscriber, you don’t need to do anything — your subscription will automatically transfer to Peacock on July 16. And if you’re not a subscriber, you can sign up for Peacock now and get access to all of WWE Network’s content, plus a whole lot more from NBCUniversal.
