Here's everything coming to Peacock, NBCUniversal's streaming service
NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock is assembling an immense flock of content ahead of its scheduled launch on July 15 — more than 15,000 hours of it, to be precise. In addition to hosting such beloved NBCUniversal properties as The Office, Saturday Night Live, Jurassic Park, and more, the platform will be the home of even more original movies and TV shows, plus Olympics and other sports coverage, next-day streaming of NBC broadcast shows, and early access to the network’s slate of late-night programming. Even in our current content-flooded era, it’s enough to make anyone’s head spin.
Peacock will be available for free, but the streaming service will also offer a Premium plan with an expanded selection of content, for $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year with ads, and $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year ad-free. Like HBO Max, Peacock will not be available on Roku and Amazon Fire TV at launch, but will be streaming on Apple TV and iOS devices, Android and Android TV, Chromecast, Comcast Xfinity devices, Xbox One, and LG and Vizio Smart TVs.
Though it’s a nigh-impossible task to document everything coming to these streaming services, here’s a roundup of the movies and TV shows that will be available on Peacock when it finally hatches.
