Peacock is set to get even better by the end of the month.
It was announced today that Peacock users will be able to stream their local NBC station in all 210 TV markets. This new feature of Peacock is scheduled to launch on the streaming service on Wednesday, November 30.
These streams will be 24/7 feeds of those local NBC stations. However, they will only be available to ad-free Peacock Premium subscribers, which currently costs $9.99 a month.
Peacock does provide livestreams for select sporting events such as select Notre Dame games and NASCAR races, IndyCar racing, NFL Sunday Night Football, and WWE.
Additionally, Peacock is the home of current NBC shows for next-day streaming, as well as other popular TV shows and movies like “Yellowstone,” “That 70s Show,” “The Office,” and “Downton Abbey,” just to name a few.
Popular films on Peacock include “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” “Jurassic World Dominion,” “Liar Liar,” and “Pitch Perfect.”
On top of the addition of local NBC stations to Peacock coming later this month, it has also added Hallmark content, which includes next-day streaming for new Christmas movies on Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama with 24/7 livestreams of those channels too.
By adding 24/7 local NBC stations to the streaming service, it makes Peacock quite similar to Paramount+ that has the same feature with local CBS stations.
Peacock is available to stream on the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac. The ad-free tier of Peacock Premium can be subscribed to through the App Store with in-app purchases. The service syncs with the Apple TV app too.
