For those unfamiliar with Live TV services or IPTV, these streaming services offer live TV channels at a set time delivered over the internet.

To stream Live TV, you need a high-speed and stable internet connection, streaming devices such as smart TV or Amazon Firestick, and a subscription to a streaming service.

Viewers can watch the latest news, sports, sitcoms, and other entertainment channels on an affordable subscription-based service without the hassle of cable.

For the first year of Peacock, viewers will also be treated to more than 600 movies produced by Illumination, DreamWorks and Universal such as Jurassic Park, American Pie, Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and franchises such as Jason Bourne, Fast and Furious series and Shrek.

How Much Does Peacock TV Cost?

Peacock is available in three packages.

Peacock Free, as its name implies, is offered at no cost to US-based subscribers. They can access up to 7,500 hours of programming.

New episodes of NBC shows will be broadcast the following day.

Included in this tier are NBC’s classic TV shows, sports and news programming, and a selection of Spanish-language shows from Telemundo.

Subscribers will also be treated to Peacocks’ upcoming original shows but will be limited to a few episodes only.

This package is ad-supported but NBC has announced that only 5 minutes of ads will be shown for every hour of programming.

Peacock Premium, on the other hand, comes at no charge for Comcast and Cox cable TV subscribers to access more than 15,000 hours of content.

However, this package is ad-supported so if they want to get rid of the ads, users can pay $4.99 per month.

Then there is Peacock Premium Plus for $9.99/month which includes all of Peacock Premium’s features without the ads.

As mentioned previously, you will notice there are 7-Day Free Trials available for both of the premium plans.

Peacock TV users will be able to search for content in three ways: Channels, Trending, and Browse sections.

The Trending section presents clips from sports, TV shows, and other content.

Finally, in the Browse section, users will be able to view two rows: Continue Watching and Watchlist.

The former displays thumbnails of past shows they’ve watched and a bar that indicates where they’ve left off.

For Watchlist, recommendations are displayed based on Comcast’s advanced machine learning algorithms.
