The addition of NBC to the streaming wars will finally pull its feathers this week.
Peacock, an advertising support service named after NBC’s iconic logo, will launch on July 15. Streamer brings the NBC Universal movie and TV list to the Internet.
Here is what to expect from NBC’s Peacock.
How much does Peacock cost with Premium Ads?
The Peacock Advertising Campaign emphasizes how free the service is. You get the chance to enjoy the streaming library for free.
But Peacock offers three-tier members, and you have to pay if you want to get full, unrestricted access to the entire site. The layers are as follows:
Peacock TV Free: This is the basic, ad support member for accessing 13,000 hours of NBC content.
Peacock Premium with Ads: $4.99 / month or $50 / year. The program will give users full access to peacock content, including 20,000 hours of TV and movies and live game access. However, this may involve some business breaks.
Peacock Premium without Ads: $9.99 / month or $100 / year. This is an all-access, ad-free option.
What to watch on Peacock?
Peacock will feature a comprehensive list of former NBC comedy and drama series, current events, live news and games and various peacock sources.
The Office, the beloved NBC comedy series that will leave Netflix in 2021, will be fully available throughout Peacock. Other NBC jokes like 30 Rock, Parks & Rec and Saturday Night Live. (Unfortunately, Seinfeld will not be available on Peacock, but will be moving from Hulu to Netflix next year).
Peacock will also provide a healthy sample of universal films such as Jurassic Park, The Matrix trilogy and Do the Right Thing.
The site also features some sources, such as an adaptation of the dystopian novel Brave New World.
However, the original premium is limited to users only, so you will have to pay if you want to see new content. Premium payers will also get access the next day for new TV episodes, while free users will have to wait a week for new episodes to become available.
