Here's What You Can Watch for Free on Peacock, NBC's New Streaming Service

The Matrix! Friday Night Lights! Some live sports!

Tim Surette

NBCUniversal's new streaming service, Peacock, has now launched, adding another player to the crowded streaming market. But what separates Peacock from rivals like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu is that a large portion of it will be free. That's right, a huge chunk of what Peacock will offer is available to everyone at no charge -- provided you don't mind watching some ads. 

Peacock launched with more than 13,000 hours of programming on its free tier (compared to the 20,000 hours in its premium tier, which costs $4.99/month for the ad-supported version and $9.99 for the ad-free premium option), including several films from Universal's library and a bunch of shows from NBC's stocks. Additionally, new episodes of shows in the NBCUniversal family currently airing head to Peacock a week after broadcast, and Peacock is offering a small selection of live sports and the recently announced Today All Day, a 24/7 feed of content from NBC's morning show Today. As for Peacock originals like Brave New World and Intelligence, sample episodes are available in the free tier, but to watch the whole series, you'll need to pony up for Peacock Premium.
