New streaming providers seem to be popping up from every direction, on a near-weekly basis. And the recent pandemic has only accelerated the growth of video-on-demand services. Whether it’s Disney Plus or HBO Max, the choice of streaming platforms often appears endless.
And PeacockTV is part of this endless streaming platform. So what is PeacockTV after all? This is what we will tell you and along with this, we will also tell you how you can activate and sign up for PeacockTV.
So what actually is PeacockTV?
First off, you should know that PeacockTV is a division of TV network NBCUniversal, which is owned by American entertainment giant Comcast, the company responsible for the likes of DreamWorks Animation, Xfinity cable services, and the Sky Group that operates across Europe, just to name a few of their properties.
With such a huge arsenal of TV and film at their disposal, it comes as quite a surprise that NBC hadn’t dipped their toes into online streaming earlier, but then Comcast did already own a minority stake in Hulu, so they weren’t completely late to the party.
After forming the company’s direct-to-consumer and digital enterprises arm in January 2019, the new division became responsible for the firm’s stakes in networking units like Fandango, Snap, and Vox Media.
The only missing piece was their very own streaming service, which was formally launched on April 15, 2020, and named PeacockTV. Following a soft launch to some Comcast users in April 2020, PeacockTV went nationwide across the US in July, with a subscription model to cater to all customers.
- There was the free option, which offered 15,000 hours of content accompanied by short ads.
- A premium service, which for $4.99 a month unlocked the entire PeacockTV library including live sport and thousands more hours of content.
- And finally premium plus at $9.99 a month, which offered everything ad-free, and with the additional benefit of being able to download selected titles to your phone to watch later offline.
