So as of today, I can't log into the WWE Network. So best I can tell, I'm gonna have to call him and tell him if he wants to watch the PPV's anymore, he's going to have to go in, cancel his WWE Network subscription, then go and set up a Peacock account..

I can see a LOT of people just saying fuck it and not bothering..if Peacock are hoping to bring in those million-plus subscribers I wouldn't hold my breath..

I haven't checked mine yet, but we were promised full access until the day before WM without having to switch over.  That would be a huge glitch if they disconnected people early.

The automated message I got said: "WWE Network is moving, and beginning April 5, it will be exclusively available on Peacock in the U.S. As a result, your current WWE Network subscription will expire at the end of this billing cycle and will not renew."
I logged into my account (via the traditional computer/desktop interface) and under "subscription" it now simply says that my subscription ENDS on March 23 (which was my usual monthly renew date). No other options. So I'm curious how things will work for me in that March 23- April 5 gap. The way I read the email, I'm assuming that I'll be cut-off after March 23.

Dave Scherer was kind of a moron if it's his job to know stuff like this and he didn't but I did. Still, it gives you insight into how intrusive the commercials will be on Peacock.

PWInsider:

As is my Friday ritual, I watch the most excellent NXT UK program every Friday. I figured I would try watching it on Peacock today since in two weeks, I won't have another choice. My first impression? They have a lot of work to do.

Peacock, of course, made on offer to WWE Network subscribers (and pretty much anyone with a pulse to be honest) that for $4.99 a month, you get Peacock Premium! Five dollars off! And if you signed up early, you got the first four months for $2.50 a month! What a bargain!

Well, I will admit, I didn't read the fine print when I signed up, as I am sure many of you didn't. What I found out today was after the opening segment, where Trent Seven and Jordan Devlin weighed in for their match, I got a 45 second commercial block. No way around it, I just had to watch it. I knew something was up. As it turns out, if we want to eliminate ads, we have to pay The Cock (hey that's catchy, I think it's keeper) five MORE dollars a month. So much for getting The WWE Network cheaper than we were before. Since I wasn't going to upgrade right then and there, I figured how bad could it be?

The answer? VERY!

Whoever put the ads into the programming must be a chimpanzee or trained monkey of some kind. They just decided to pop in commercials at any time, no matter where the program was in its scene. Right in the middle of the main event? COMMERCIAL TIME! The main event was awesome and thank God I was expecting the interruption because if I wasn't, I would have been really ticked off. What kind of knuckle dragging simpleton puts a commercial break right in the middle of a match on a "premium" service? The answer? The Cock!

I have heard from people that bought the No Ads version that when us poor saps on regular premium get ads, they get a black screen for a second or two, then back to the segment. So even ad free isn't perfect. The Cock needs to work on making the content seemless for people that pay for no ads. The few second interruption is unacceptable and no other streaming service does it (that I know of).

As for the PPV on Sunday, well us saps are going to get ads it seems. It appears that the people that pay for Ad free will get a black screen since the show will be live and they can't exactly time warp the show 45 seconds ahead, so that option isn't really much better.

So before you sign up for The Cock, you need to decide if the frustration of ill timed ads is worth the extra five dollars a month.

Although technology always moves us forward, this sounds way worse, like a major step in the wrong direction.  The last thing WWE or Peacock needs is to irritate anymore viewers lol.

But, if there is only one level, then the WWE is gaining a large amount of new viewership, because it will draw in people like myself, if this is all available with the standard Peacock subscription.  I wonder what the actual deal is with Comcast and NBC? 
If the current Comcast customers who get Peacock will have to upgrade to a Peacock Premium then I think this will cause issues for the network. 

There are 3 levels. There’s a free version that basically has a lot of NBC re-runs on it and other stuff, but none of the new shows. Then there’s a $4.99 version which gets you access to everything (including WWE Network) but with ads. There’s also a $9.99 version which is the same but ad-free. 


Srossi.....I have basic Peacock and they loaded it full of WWE programming???

Are you actually paying the $4.99 now?  And very little has been migrated over yet, so what you’re seeing does not resemble WWE Network of the last 6 years.

If you’re not paying you don’t have WWE Network. They’re just previewing stuff in the hopes you’ll subscribe. So of course there’s not much there. They haven’t even uploaded most of the content to the paying customers yet, so they’re definitely not going to give you much for free.

It seems to be all the pay per views. Wrestlemanis, Royal Rumbles, Survivor Series, etc. All episodes. There is a whole forum devoted to Stone Cold with many different programs. A forum for their original programs. It is one hell of a sample size. I just wish they older stuff.

PWInsider:

WWE issued the following statement regarding issues with Peacock's first-ever WWE PPV stream tonight via social media

Any issues occurring with tonight’s broadcast of #WWEFastlane will be addressed in the future.

There were a number of different complaints online about tonight's stream, ranging from the inability to start late and rewind the live stream (each of which were known in advance as not being available to Peacock users) to the quality of the Peacock stream compared to the norm on WWE Network and the stream even being several minutes behind the WWE Network stream of the show for some users.

As PWInsider.com has previously reported, Peacock has advised they expect to have several options that were available to WWE Network subscribers that are not yet functional for Peacock subscribers by Summerslam this August.

I got an e-mail from Peacock today telling me to stream Fastlane, so they're on it.  Nothing before it aired live.  This is such a disaster and they don't have the slightest idea about wrestling.

Seen on FB Peacock has edited the Piper-Brown Match from Wrestlemania 6. Guessing since Piper has a Half black face.

This is going to be a huge problem.  Once they find out half the shit that happened in wrestling before 2006 or so, there goes the entire library.  WWE Network is dead.

Oh gosh, watch the floodgates open now. Anything with Haiti Kid or the midgets will be zapped soon. Piper shaving Haiti before WM2. How many "hanging" incidents have there been? Muraco hung Steamboat on Championship Wrestling, but that appeared on the Steamboat documentary and a couple of old CHVs. Hansen hung Luger with the bullrope on one of the Clashes or Halloween Havoc 90. Any reference by Jesse Ventura to "Buckwheat" or "Chico". Terry Funk's branding iron. Bossman beating the shit out of people (black jobbers) with his nightstick, because, you know. This could have no end.
