NBCUniversal has officially launched their new streaming platform, Peacock. And, unlike its competitors, Peacock has a free option that gives viewers access to more than 20,000 hours of ad-supported content.
In addition to the basic free platform, there is also a premium ad-supported version available for $4.99 per month and a premium ad-free tier for $9.99 per month. Both of the premium tiers offer another 10,000 hours of movies, TV shows, and sports programming.
