Which Shows Are Exclusive to Peacock?
With NBCUniversal releasing Peacock nationally on July 15, many users anticipate it will shake up streaming services. Early on in the announcement of the service, Peacock appeared as though it would become the exclusive home for many of NBC’s most popular programs, including “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office.” Parks and Recreation is currently available on Hulu and Netflix, while “The Office” streams on Netflix.
On July 15, “Parks and Recreation” will stream on Peacock, as well as Hulu and Netflix, and Netflix will still stream “The Office.” But that all changes in October 2020 when Peacock gets the exclusive rights to “Parks and Recreation.” And in January 2021, “The Office” will leave Netflix to stream exclusively on Peacock.
But those aren’t the only exclusive programs being offered. On its launch date, Peacock will become the essential platform for streaming much of NBC’s live programming. This includes late-night shows like “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and live sports such as Premier League soccer and the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.
In addition, a number of reboots will eventually debut on Peacock, including “Battlestar Galactica,” “Punky Brewster” and “Saved by the Bell.”

At launch, users can expect to see the following original shows that are exclusive to Peacock:
- “Brave New World,” an adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s popular novel featuring Alden Ehrenreich, Jessica Brown Findlay, Harry Lloyd and Demi Moore.
