NBCUniversal’s new Peacock streaming service launched today for those who have Xfinity X1 and Flex TV subscriptions. It is the first single streaming service for the company.

Here is what you need to know.

Tiers and Price:

There will be two tiers that cost $4.99 a month for the version of the service with ads and the ad-free subscription will cost $9.99 a month. It is similar to the prices of CBS All Access.

A free version of the service with ads has also been planned too.


The streaming service is set to have plenty of great TV shows such as current NBC programming, “Two and a Half Men,” “30 Rock,” “Parks and Recreation,” “King of Queens,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Leave It to Beaver,” “Friday Night Lights” and plenty of other TV shows to choose from.

You can also expect to see movies like “Shrek,” “Liar Liar,” “American Psycho,” the entire “Jurassic Park” movie series and other movies too.

Most importantly, the popular TV series “The Office” will be leaving Netflix in January 2021 and join Peacock at the same time.

Original Content:

This new streaming service, like most others out there, will have exclusive original content on it. Here are the new original shows you can expect to see on the new streaming platform: “A.P. Bio,” “Psych 2: Lassie Come Home” and “Saved by the Bell.”

Most of the original TV shows and movies on it are set to premiere on Peacock in 2021.


NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service is said to have launched today for Xfinity X1 and Flex customers. The company has said that all of those customers should have access to it by April 30.

The general public is set to have to wait until July 15, where it will be released to everyone nationwide. However, the national release of Peacock could come sooner, depending on the status of the coronavirus pandemic.

Also note that next month, HBO Max is set to launch to the public, where it is said to cost $14.99 a month and will have a huge catalog including the entire HBO library of original HBO TV shows, and be the exclusive streaming provider for both “The Big Bang Theory” and “Friends.”
