Peacock: Is It Worth the Download?

Peacock has entered the streaming wars. The NBC platform launched last week and boasts of over 20,000 hours of shows, sports, and movies. But the question we have is, is it worth the download? Is it really worth downloading another app and possibly paying another subscription?

What to Know

There are 3 Tiers – Free, Paid ($5), & Paid+ ($10)
One of the things that makes Peacock stand out from the crowd is that it offers a free plan. It’s a nice little break from having to shell out more money for another streaming service that you may or may not use. The free plan has commercials of course, but that’s understandable. The free plan also offers a lot of content, but if you want more, you have to sign up for the paid version. The paid version unlocks all the content Peacock has to offer. Want all the content but no ads? Peacock has you covered, but you gotta pay $5 more.

Live Streaming Channels
Another stand-out feature is Peacock’s streaming channels. These are not network streams, but more specialized ‘themed’ streams much like PlutoTV. For example, they have channels that stream clips from The Office, SNL, and  even Bob Ross. It’s a nice little addition to the service.

Not Available on Roku or Amazon Fire TV
This is very unfortunate. Just like HBO Max, Peacock did not secure a deal with Roku or Amazon before launch. Roku and Amazon make up most of the streaming devices in America, so there is a good portion of the population that won’t be able to access the app on their TVs at the time. We hope a deal gets in place soon.

So, is it worth it?

It’s doesn’t hurt to keep the free plan. The streaming channels are great. However, the paid version may not be worth the money at this time. However, it does have way more to offer than AppleTV+, but that’s another story…
