There are many streaming services available at the moment and it looks like we have another contender who has tossed their hat into the ring. NBCUniversal has recently announced their upcoming streaming service called Peacock, and one of the ways the company is standing out from the competition is by offering a free tier.
There will actually be three different tiers to choose from, but if you’re unsure if Peacock is the service for you, then there is a free tier that will give you access to a bunch of shows that will be further supplemented by ads. However, there will also be two paid tiers that might be of interest in the form of Peacock Premium.
The first tier of Peacock Premium will be priced at $4.99 a month and it will also be supplemented by ads, and the second tier will be priced at $9.99 without any ads. So what ‘s the difference between the free version and the $4.99 version? Basically with Peacock Premium, there will be some shows that will be exclusive to the paid tier.
This means that users on the free tier could be missing out on some shows by opting not to pay for it, but if you don’t want to pay too much and want access to those shows and don’t mind ads, $4.99 might be a cheaper alternative. NBC’s Peacock is expected to launch on the 15th of July, so hopefully we’ll have more details then.
