NBCUniversal’s Peacock, the US home of the WWE Network, will soon launch in the UK and Europe in affiliation with Sky.
As reported by Deadline, the platform has now reached 54 million sign-ups and 20 million monthly active accounts.
Comcast CEO Brian Roberts has confirmed the platform will be arriving in its first international territories soon, “with Sky implementing the outlet at no cost to customers across its 20 million households in the UK and Europe”.
After debuting on Sky, the plan is for Peacock to roll the platform out globally via third party distributors.
US fans have not been impressed since the WWE Network changeover, with Peacock having multiple technical issues and a lack of many functionalities that the original WWE Network had.
There is no word yet on how this will affect international WWE Network users, so we’ll keep you informed if any news comes to light.
