NBC Peacock’s reported $10 price point may be best streaming deal
New NBC streaming service Peacock launches in April, and is reportedly considering a $10 price point without ads. Compared to competitors and considering the content involved, that may be the sweetest deal in streaming.
News of this recently came from The Information, and the report also added Peacock could be as low as $4.99 with ads.
How does Peacock’s price point stack up?
Apple TV+ matches the $4.99 per month price point, but without ads! However, it doesn’t boast any movie catalog despite some strong initial in-house programming. Disney+ is a cheaper $6.99 potential alternative, yet lacks new programming. Plus, (pun intended) much of the content is obviously family-oriented and nostalgia-heavy.
Netflix’s most popular plan is $12.99, and financial experts suggest it might be time to bail on the streaming giant. Finally, Hulu is at $5.99 per month for its basic package, but has an interesting, uncertain future since it’s under full Disney control.

What makes NBC’s Peacock stand out?
Peacock has tons of original programming on the way. In addition to that, the new streamer acquired exclusive rights to classic TV shows. These include 30 Rock, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cheers, House and others. Parks & Recreation and The Office eventually arrive in October 2020 and January 2021 respectively, too.
Between a wealth of new content coming, lucrative preexisting IP deals for iconic TV series and a nice variety of movies, this $10 Peacock price point may well be the best bargain on the streaming market.
As the new year approaches, keep NBC Peacock in the back of your mind. You might want to pounce on this deal once you can.
