Super Bowl on Peacock: Prices, tiers and what else to know

Peacock TV is NBCUniversal's US streaming app, with tens of thousands of hours of free programming, plus more shows, movies, sports and originals if you pay. But only paying Peacock members can access everything on the service, including the paywalled stream of Super Bowl LVI as the Los Angeles Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals. You also need to be a premium member to stream Marry Me, a romcom movie streaming on Peacock at the same time its in theaters, or the first three seasons of cowboy drama Yellowstone.

Thinking Of Adding Peacock? Now Is The Time To Stream The Super Bowl, The Olympics, Marry Me And More

There are too many streaming services. There, I said it. I write about TV and movies for a living, and I don’t even have all of them. There are just too many options right now. Initially, my approach was to have a few and ignore the rest, but lately, I’ve started to think the better option here is to switch around and try different things out for limited amounts of time. After all, not every service offers the same level of new value each month, and I have to say, as value goes, there’s no better streaming service to subscribe to this month than Peacock.

Peacock Subscription: The Plans, The Price And What’s Included

At this point, there’s a high probability you have a free Peacock subscription, even if you forgot about it until I mentioned it just now. Now that you’re back from checking to make sure you haven’t been paying for Peacock Premium without knowing about it for the past few months (totally not saying that’s happened to me before), you may be thinking about signing up for it to see what all the fuss is about, especially with some of those great and exciting original shows and all those great movies.

To My Shock, Peacock Has Figured Out the Olympics

There was a time, not that long ago, when the arrival of a new Olympics would see me heading off to the airport. It wasn’t the Games I was fleeing. It was NBC. I loved the biennial goof-fest too much to have it ruined by the schmaltzy, jingoistic, favorites-focused inanity of the U.S. TV coverage. Instead, I’d head abroad, where I’d be subjected to fewer tear-jerking human-interest segments and have the opportunity to see every end of a curling match. Since most Canadian cities pick up the U.S. networks, crossing the Northern border was the percentage move, since I could revel in the expert north-of-the-border commentary and then sneakily check in on NBC during the Canucks’ commercial breaks to see how much better I had it than the chumps who’d stayed home.

Peacock Lost $1.7 Billion in 2021, More Than Double Year Prior; Comcast to Up Streamer’s Content Spending to $3 Billion This Year

UPDATED: NBCUniversal’s Peacock, entering its third year of operation, sank deeper into investment-mode red ink in 2021 — with adjusted losses at the streamer more than doubling. NBCU parent Comcast outlined plans to boost spending on Peacock content even more in 2022 and beyond. Comcast, in reporting Q4 earnings Thursday, revealed that Peacock generated $778 million in revenue for the full-year 2021, with an adjusted loss of $1.7 billion. That’s compared with $118 million of revenue and an adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) loss of $663 million in 2020. For 2022, Comcast expects Peacock losses to total about $2.5...

Will Peacock Get the Olympics Right This Time?

For Peacock, last summer’s Olympics were supposed to offer a chance to hit the reset button following a rocky, pandemic-marred launch. Instead, the Games turned into a massive headache: Not every big event could be seen live on the platform, and finding the ones that were was a chore for even the most tech-savvy consumer. At times, it seemed as if complaining about Peacock was more popular than anything going on in Tokyo. Unsurprisingly, the NBCUniversal streamer is hoping things go more smoothly with this month’s winter games in China — and on at least one front, there is reason to think they will.
