On Tuesday, WWE announced that RAW will be moved from USA Network to Netflix from January 2025 onwards. Netflix will become the exclusive home of the red brand in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Latin America. It will expand to more countries in the future.
RAW, SmackDown, NXT, Main Event, Level Up, and Premium Live Events will be streamed on Netflix for fans outside of the United States starting next year. The respective countries will be announced once the deal begins in January 2025.
WWE Network dismantled its United States operations in 2021. The company then signed a five-year deal with Peacock worth $1 billion to stream PLEs. As part of the deal, WWE’s classic content was also available in Peacock for United States customers. However, the WWE and Peacock deal will expire in March 2026.
WWE Network has been available to fans worldwide for $9.99 per month since it launched in 2014. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer reported that WWE will shut down the WWE Network next year. All the classic content will be moved to Netflix for fans outside of the United States.
“The WWE Network itself does exist outside of the United States. That will be folding at the end of the year. Netflix will pick up the content. Now will they pick up all the content, all the archives? I don’t know but they will be the sole source of that, the archival content of all the old territories and all the old stuff that was on the old WWE Network, that will move to Netflix outside of the United States in January.”
