What’s Coming To NBC’s Peacock? There’s A Lot To Look Forward To

As the new decade of the 2020s takes off, the world of entertainment is shifting. Even before the new year, both Apple and Disney had launched major streaming services, in hopes of competing with Netflix and Amazon. HBO Max arrived a few days after Memorial Day. And then there’s NBC’s Peacock streaming service, which technically soft-launched on April 15 to anyone with Comcast, and widened its release in July. So what’s coming to NBC’s Peacock when it shows up on your app list? It’s a smorgasbord of viewer favorites.

Peacock is a little different than its competitors. Unlike Apple and Disney, NBC did not spend billions of dollars on high-end prestige shows for the April 15 launch, saving them for the July 15 debut. Moreover, it’s not emphasizing new shows as much as it is the library of older stuff. There’s a good reason for that: NBC is offering its older content to anyone who signs up for free.

In essence, NBC is trying to treat moving from TV to streaming the same way it did when it moved from radio to TV all those years ago. The same stuff, just on a different medium, and delivered free to anyone who downloads, just as long as they don’t mind ads. The free tier will include:

  • Next-day access to current seasons of NBC broadcast shows like one gets on Hulu
  • Genre channels (think a channel of nothing but Law & Order or SNL)
  • Complete classic NBC series and popular Universal movies
  • Curated daily news and sports (including the Olympics)
  • Select episodes of Peacock originals, to entice you to sign up for the paid tier to access full seasons
