NBCUniversal names streaming service Peacock

peacock logo on blackWe’ve been anticipating NBCUniversal’s upcoming streaming service and now it’s got a name, “Peacock.” The product takes its name from the well-known NBC logo, and is scheduled to launch April 2020.

NBCUniversal hasn’t announced pricing yet but since Apple and Disney will launch at $4.99 and $6.99, respectively, Peacock should be around that range. However, there will be both a subscription and ad-supported (maybe free) tier.

“Peacock is a nod to NBC’s iconic logo and NBCUniversal’s rich legacy of creating beloved films, TV series, characters and franchises that have been at the epicenter of pop culture and will continue to define the future of entertainment,” said NBCUniversal in a press release.

Peacock will launch with 15,000 hours of content and stream the 2020 Summer Olympics from Tokyo, Japan. The service will offer popular shows such as “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Battlestar Gallactica,” and “Everyone Loves Raymond,” as well as movies from Universal Pictures, Focus Features, DreamWorks Animation, and Illumination.

Some of the cinematic titles mentioned include “Bridesmaids,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Casino,” “E.T. The Extra Terrestrial,” and “Jaws.” Peacock will also host the “Bourne,” “Despicable Me,” and “Fast & Furious” film franchises.
