Peacock Will Have Linear Channels Like Pluto TV, These Are Some Channels They’ll Have at Launch
NBCUniversal finally peeled back the curtain on Peacock during their investor meeting yesterday. The company revealed their streaming service will launch nationally on July 15 with three tiers — a free and subscription version starting at $4.99/month and an ad-free version that will be available for $9.99 per month. The price is right on par with Disney+ for $6.99/month and Apple TV+ for $4.99/month. Comcast’s Xfinity X1 and Flex customers will be able to access the service earlier on April 15.
In addition to the news, entertainment, sports, late-night and reality from the various properties around the company as well as new originals and library content, NBCU also announced that Peacock will have linear channels like Pluto TV, allowing for lean-back watching as well.
