NBC Universal announced last week during an event with shareholders in New York new details about Peacock, the company’s new OTT. The platform will be launched on April 15th in the US for Xfinity TV customers (Comcast), and will arrive at the rest of that country on July 15th.
As detailed, the OTT will have a free subscription, and two others, valued at USD 4.99 and USD 9.99. The free option will feature advertising and offer access to archive series and new episodes of new ones, with a day late. It is estimated that the free Peacock catalog will meet 7,500 hours of content, and will include series, movies, sports, news, content in Spanish and some Peacock Originals episodes. In the case of paid subscriptions, both are called ‘Peacock Premium’. The USD 4.99 subscription will include advertising, while the USD 9.99 subscription will not.
The Peacock Premium offer will include 15 thousand hours of live and on demand content and will allow access to the entire NBC Universal archive, premieres and series. In addition, Xfinity TV and Cox Communications customers will have the option with advertising available for free.
Some of the most relevant contents to be available on the platform are the entire Law & Order franchise, together with The Office, Two and a Half Men, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the Premier League matches, original series, and others.
