NBC’s new TV and movie streaming service, Peacock, will be available on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple TV starting July 15.
Peacock is scheduled to launch nationwide on July 15. NBC has announced that the service will be fully integrated with the Apple TV app, allowing customers to connect to their iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD. Users will also be able to use Siri to easily search for Peacock content.
Customers will also be able to sign up for Peacock Free or upgrade to Peacock premium directly in the Peacock iOS app or on Apple TV using an in-app purchase.
The ad-supported Peacock Premium will sell for $ 4.99 a month, while an ad-free version will be available for $ 9.99. Comcast and Cox subscribers can opt for the ad-free model for $ 5 a month. A free level with limited content will also be available.
“Our priority is to deliver to users of Peacock’s unrivaled content collection on leading distributors and device platforms,” said Matt Bond, President, Content Distribution, NBCUniversal. “We look forward to bringing Peacock to Apple customers when we launch in the United States in July, capitalizing on Apple’s incredible reach and connecting with millions of viewers on their devices.”
At launch, some 15,000 hours of movies and programming will be available for streaming, including popular programs such as “Parks and Recreation”, “Law & Order: SVU”, “Two and a Half Men” and early access to the content of NBC night shows. Films are also showing, the service offering selections from the vast back catalog of the media giant. NBC also says live sports will also be available on the service, which could pay the way for additional live streaming content.
