Comcast’s NBCUniversal unveiled its new Peacock streaming service on Thursday in a desperate bid to compete against Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video — and a slew of other streaming video services that have been launched in recent months.
Peacock will be available — free of charge — to Comcast subscribers as of April 15, and will be rolled out nationally on July 15 for a price that ranges from free to $9.99 a month.
Comcast and Cox subscribers will get a premium, ad-supported version that includes 15,000 hours of programming free of charge.
Non -cable subscribers also get a free, ad-supported version, but with just 7,500 hours of programs. They can also pony up $4.99 a month for more hours with ads or $9.99 without ads.
