What features are available on Peacock?
Up to 3 Devices
Peacock allows you to stream on up to 3 devices simultaneously.
While both Peacock Free and Peacock Premium are ad-supported, they will only have five minutes of ads per hour of content. You can subscribe to Peacock Premium Plus for $9.99 a month to remove ads, though you will still see them on the live NBC feed.
When you upgrade to Peacock Premium Plus, you can download shows offline to your mobile device or tablet. On average, a 1 hour show will require about 500MB of storage on your device.
No International Access
When you leave the country, you will only be able to access content you’ve already downloaded to your mobile device.
Peacock includes more than 15,000 hours of content including original shows, classic series, and movies.
In addition to on-demand content, Peacock has linear channels similar to Pluto TV. These include live content like a full 24/7 feed of The Olympic Channel — but also created ones like one based on the SNL Vault.
Peacock Premium subscribers also have access to Premier League games not available on linear TV, as well as access to WWE Network, including PPV events and on-demand library at no additional cost. You can also stream 24/7 feed of The Olympic Channel. For late-night show fans, you can watch full episodes of The Tonight Show and Late Night starting at 8pm ET daily.
The NBCU-owned service relies heavily on nostalgia for their original shows. “Bel-Air” has been its best performer to date. Reboots of “Saved By The Bell” and “Punky Brewster” didn’t last.
Peacock often turns to trusted creators like Michael Schur to try to recreate the magic of shows like “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” though their new shows have struggled to catch on.
NBCUniversal’s Peacock is the exclusive home of “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Law & Order,” “Chicago Fire,” and “Two and a Half Men.”
Nearly all current NBC shows end up on Peacock.
It’s also the only place to see previous seasons of “Yellowstone.”
Peacock also offers a robust slate of critically-acclaimed films and box-office hits from Universal Pictures and Focus Features. The library does fluctuate from month-to-month, though some titles remain.
These titles range from laugh-out-loud comedies like “American Pie,” “Bridesmaids,” “Knocked Up,” “Meet the Parents,” and “Meet the Fockers,” to award-winning classics such as “A Beautiful Mind,” “Back to the Future,” “Brokeback Mountain,”“Casino,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “Do the Right Thing,” “Erin Brockovich,” “E.T. The Extra Terrestrial,” “Field of Dreams,” “Jaws,” “Mamma Mia!,” “Shrek,” and “The Breakfast Club.” Peacock will also feature films from the franchises: “Bourne,” “Despicable Me,” and “Fast & Furious.”
Peacock has a lot of family-friendly content that airs on NBC, including shows from Dreamworks Animation. You’ll also see lots of films featuring the popular Minions from the “Despicable Me” franchise.
There is very little children’s content on Peacock that is exclusive to the service, however. Most of the children’s TV shows can also be found on other services.
