Peacock will be home to NBC shows this fall.

After announcing the end of its deal with Hulu in March, NBCUniversal is moving NBC shows to its own streaming service, Peacock, on Sept. 19, the company said Wednesday. 

Hulu subscribers should prepare to stream new episodes of The Voice, Law & Order: SVU and other series on the rival platform.

Comcast-owned NBCUniversal -- which has a 33% stake in Hulu -- reclaimed rights to a number of titles earlier this year. Bravo content like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills already began migrating to Peacock with more titles set to make their official transition in September. 

Beginning next month, viewers will need a Peacock Premium account to stream next-day episodes of current Bravo and NBC shows such as Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, La Brea, Young Rock, America's Got Talent and Below Deck Med. In addition to favorites like the Law & Order franchise, upcoming NBC series like Quantum Leap will also call Peacock their exclusive streaming home.

In efforts to attract more subscribers, Peacock is offering two deals: Peacock Premium for $2 per month, or $20 for one year. The plan normally costs $5 a month, or $50 per year. New customers can sign up for a Peacock Premium account until the end of September and receive the discounted rate. While Peacock has a free plan, it grants limited access to content. To unlock everything in its library, you must sign up for one of its paid tiers: Peacock Premium (with ads) or Peacock Premium Plus (ad-free).

The streaming service provides access to more than 60,000 hours of films, TV shows and sports events, including movie classics, originals, news programming and Sunday Night Football. Additionally, Peacock streams theatrical releases from Universal Pictures such as The Black Phone, Jurassic World Dominion and the upcoming Halloween Ends.
