As Peacock becomes the exclusive new home for the next-day streaming of NBC shows such as the #OneChicago trifecta, SNL, SVU and The Voice, it is (temporarily) cutting the price for the Premium tier that will be required to do so.
As of September 19, Peacock will — as TVLine previously reported — be the new streaming home of NBC and Bravo fare, offering its Premium subscribers next-day access to current seasons of NBC and Bravo shows the day after they air on the networks. (Older NBC series such as 30 Rock are not affected by this decision, as they currently stream on Hulu as part of different, separate deals.)
Adding further value to a Peacock Premium account is the fact that the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives now streams exclusively on the service, following its 57-year run on NBC.
Through the month of September, new customers who sign-up for Peacock’s Premium plan will pay just $1.99 a month, or $19.99 for an entire year, as part of “a special Fall celebratory offer.” (New customers can sign up here for the lower rate.)
Currently, Peacock offers three levels of entry: a free, basic plan that will not allow you to stream episodes next-day; the Premium plan, which forces you to sit through some ads and usually is $4.99/month, but is being cut to $1.99 for new subs signing up in September; and Peacock Premium Plus, which fetches $9.99/month and spares you the watching of any ads.
