What Is the Peacock TV PC app?
The video streaming world has thus far been dominated by relative newcomers like Netflix and Hulu, but now traditional media giants have started to catch on. First was Disney with Disney Plus, and now NBCUniversal (owned by Comcast) with its new streaming service Peacock TV for PC.
Using the name Peacock as the label for the NBCUniversal streaming service is a nod to the early days of television.
Peacock has three tiers of service: Free, Premium, and Premium Plus. The Free tier has a subset of the content of the upper two tiers and targets its users with advertising. The middle tier, Peacock Premium, has the advertising as well but provides the full library of content. In both ad-supported tiers, commercials are limited to five minutes per hour. The upper tier, Peacock Premium Plus, provides the full library without ads. Peacock Free is available at no charge to all U.S. Internet users.
Peacock TV for Windows app Premium is available as a monthly subscription. but also is included in some services from TV service providers including Xfinity and Cox. Subscribers to Peacock Premium, whether subscribing directly or receiving service through a provider. Can upgrade to the ad-free service, Peacock Premium Plus, for an additional monthly cost.
On May 6, 2020, a distribution deal with Apple was announced. As part of the deal, Peacock will be available on iOS devices and Apple TV on launch. Furthermore, content from both Peacock tiers will be listed in the Apple TV app and users from Apple devices will have the ability to subscribe to Peacock Premium with an in-app purchase. On July 20, the service became available on PlayStation 4.
IS Peacock free for Xfinity customers?
NBCUniversal is owned by Comcast, which also provides Xfinity internet and TV services. Xfinity customers have already had access to an early version of the service for weeks.
The company will be continuing to leverage corporate synergy as a key part of Peacock’s launch.

Plus, Xfinity customers will be able to upgrade their free Peacock Premium plan to Premium Ad-Free by paying $4.99 per month.

Peacock’s free tier has popular TV shows like Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock, as well as movies like Zombieland, E.T., and more, many of them coming from Comcast’s Universal and DreamWorks Animation Studios
Its premium tier unlocks originals and other items from the catalog. Trolls World Tour, DreamWorks Animation’s movie that skipped theaters to debut as a high-priced online rental in April, has moved over to Peacock to stream with a paid membership.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, several plans for Peacock’s wider rollout were upended. Filming production of original programming largely shut down in March.
