Universal's streaming service Peacock set to be free to use for NOW customers in Ireland
Saved By The Bell! Downton Abbey! Loads more is about to be added to your subscription at no extra cost.
As if what was available on your NOW subscription wasn't great enough - getting pretty much everything from Sky, HBO, as well as one of the first ports of call for recent big cinema releases - today it has been revealed that Peacock will also be available to NOW customers for no additional charge later in 2021.
The addition of Peacock will also be made available across other Sky platforms, such as Sky Q and Sky Ticket, depending on where in the world you are and what subscription you've got.
If you're not aware, Peacock is the streaming service by NBCUniversal which launched in the States in July 2020, and has already racked up over 50 million customers there alone.
Dana Strong, Group Chief Executive Officer of Sky, had the following to say about the announcement:
"Peacock will be a great addition for Sky customers with over 7,000 hours of content at no additional cost. This exceptional value add is another example of the great ways we are innovating to bring more benefits to our customers from the synergies across Sky, NBCUniversal, and Comcast Cable."
While the full library of titles that will be made available over here has yet to be announced, some of the shows that have been confirmed include The Office, Rutherford Falls, Saved by the Bell, The Equalizer, Young Rock, Kardashians, Suits, and Downton Abbey.
Additionally, the press released confirmed that "Peacock will continue to enhance its catalogue of content drawing on the best Peacock Originals as well as NBCUniversal’s iconic library of series and movies."
