TV is steadily moving on to online streaming, and after Disney+ and the upcoming HBO Max, NBC Universal has decided to give us an official look at their platform—Peacock.

From the get-go, the platform boasts a solid comic lineup with The Office, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. We would also be getting access to other pop-culture mainstays like Law and Order, The A-Team, Knight Rider, and House.
Besides the back catalog, Peacock is also going to be coming with its own exclusive content. The adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World starring Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story) is going to be an exclusive of the platform; we’re also getting a reboot of Battlestar Galactica from none other than Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail.
When it comes to price, Peacock actually has one of the cheaper price tags around. You can pay $5 for Peacock with ads, and for a totally ad-free experience, you can dish out $10.
Personally I’m not a fan of the growing number of streaming platforms as there’s no way you can pay for all these in one month, but for now, I guess the industry will just have to figure it out over time. I don’t have any idea as to how this can all be fixed, but fingers crossed someone comes up with a solution before anyone tries to make any more of these streaming services.
