Peacock is now the host for WrestleMania and all other WWE content. That huge $1 billion deal was great for WWE, but some fans were upset because of Peacock’s limitations. That frustration will change for some fans.
Fans cannot pause or rewind live broadcasts on Peacock. This is an obvious issue for some. The streaming site has promised to fix this very soon.
Peacock’s customer service has confirmed that player controls will be available by Saturday for WrestleMania’s first night. This is a big deal, but it’s only for tvOS and iOS devices. Everyone else will have to wait to restart and pause a show.
It was previously reported that Peacock will have this situation fixed by the Summer. That is also when they will have all of the content transferred over. We’ll have to see if they can work things out sooner than that.
Peacock is also working on putting in thumbnail previews. This is a work in progress, but they are getting things in order as soon as they can.
