Peacock pricing, bundles and shows: The lowdown on NBC's streaming service

Digital Media
NBC is getting into the streaming wars with its new TV and movie streaming service, Peacock. It's launching July 15, just in times for the Olympics and you'll be able to watch some of it for free. Here's everything you need to know. Disney and Apple have both launch new streaming services in recent month to take on Netflix, and now NBC Universal is joining the action. Peacock which takes its name from NBC's famous logo Go. We'll have a laugh at all your favorite programs as well as new original programming. Those library favorites include classics like The Office, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Frazier, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Law & Order. Yes, they've made a lot of TV shows, plus Telemundo will provide more than 3000 hours of Spanish language programming. But because streaming is all about the originals peacock is also creating its own new comedies, dramas and unscripted shows. For the service. There's titles like Girls Five Ever produced by Tina Fey, Expecting from Mindy Kaling as well as plenty more shows from NBC alumni like Will Forte, Amy Poller and Alec Baldwin. On the movie front, there's titles from Universal Pictures and Focus Features. Things like Brides Maids and the Fast and the Furious, plus Universal Pictures and Dreamworks are both developing original films to launch on Peacock. And of course, the Olympics, peacock will show the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2020 Olympics live before they air in primetime. Plus, there'll be three daily Olympics shows including midday and primetime highlights. So the big question price. Well, the good news is if you've currently got more subscriptions than you can handle, you'll be able to watch some things for free. Free Library has about seven and a half thousand hours of content supported by ads. That includes classic TV and movies next day access to broadcast shows in their first season and select episodes of originals but not full seasons. You also get some curated news and sports. If you want more $5 a month gets you an all access pass to peacock premium, including full seasons of originals, next day access to returning seasons of current broadcast shows. So not just the first seasons, plus early access to late night talk shows so you don't have to stay up late. You also get additional sports like Premier League. This premium T is bundled for free for Comcast and Cox subscribers. But and this is important, it's still ad supported. If you want to get rid of the ads, you'll need to pay an additional $5 a month. So the ad free peacock premium is $5 a month for Comcast and Cox subscribers and $10 a month for everyone else. Compare that to $9 for basic Netflix $5 for Apple TV and $7 for Disney plus an HBO Max, which will be $15 when it launches in May. Yeah, turns out cord cutting isn't quite the freedom you'd hoped for. But if you're sick of forking out cash streaming services every month then pick up is a pretty good option. Being able to watch classics like the office on your phone or your laptop, even if it's ad supported. It's a nice changer pick up launches on July 15.
