WWE Network Sunsetting In April, After Move To Peacock
The WWE Network app will be no more in the United States on April 4.
Peacock is sharing more details about how it will integrate WWE's content later this month when the WWE Network officially becomes part of the NBCUniversal streaming service. As , and confirmed in a recent release with the exact timeline, Peacock will begin rolling out WWE Network content on March 18. The streaming service has also .
While the landing page is as of this writing largely an FAQ about what will be available and when, the accompanying release indicates after launch it (and its counterpart on supported devices) will function as a portal "where fans can browse and access every PPV event in the last calendar year" and a wide variety of programming that includes "current or most recent season episodes of WWE original series Steve Austin’s The Broken Skull Sessions" plus "groundbreaking documentaries, including Undertaker: The Last Ride, WWE 24, and WWE Untold."
If you're a fan and haven't yet made the switch, there are two crucial things to note. The first is that the WWE will sunset the existing standalone WWE Network app in the United States on April 4.

The release also indicates that 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."
