WWE Network moves exclusively to Peacock in multi-year agreement

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/media/2021/01/25/wwe-network-nbc-peacock-subscription/6698249002/

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) will shut down its own network and move the programming to Peacock, NBCUniversal's direct-to-consumer streaming service, the two companies announced Monday.

Apparently this is happening in March, I'm not sure if subscribing to WWE content is an add-on or included in the price of Peacock the way this article words it.

Not sure if this is going to be overall good or bad as far as content goes, but it might get me to resubscribe to something to start following WWE again. I fell out of watching regularly in August. Only really watched NXT's Halloween Havoc special since then.

I believe it's an add on to the paid version of Peacock.  If you're a current Comcast customer who gets Peacock for free, then it's something like $5.  My wife hasn't been in the office for a while due to surgery, so she doesn't have details.  If she hears anything I'll try to remember to post it here.

I thought that at first, but then I read somewhere that existing subscribers to WWE Network are going to be automatically transitioned to having the 4.99 Peacock subsciption.

If it is an add on for $5, then getting a Peacock subscription plus WWE will still be the price of WWE on its own now, and if not you can upgrade to the current price of WWE and end up with commercial free, so it's still sounding like a good deal.
