Launch of Peacock
NBCUniversal launches Peacock, its new streaming service, across mobile, web, and connected TV platforms. Families bored of what they've been watching can look forward to 7,500 hours of free movies and TV shows!
The streaming service draws on NBC-Universal's vast library of favorites such as The Office and Parks and Recreation, as well as new programming, including original scripted series Battlestar Galactica, Brave New World, and Where's Waldo, and family shows such as Cleopatra in Space and Curious George*.
The free plan includes more than 7,500 hours of movies, classic and current shows, and timely live and on-demand programming across news, sports, reality, and late night.
A premium plan offering additional content costs $5 a month; it can be upgraded to ad-free for another $5 a month.
*Not all programming will be available at launch
