Peacock to launch on Xbox
May 11, 2020
Peacock, NBCUniversal’s forthcoming SVoD service, will be available on Microsoft’s Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One S and Xbox One X, when it launches in the US on July 15th, 2020.
At that time, Peacock will offer a free tier featuring more than 7,500 hours of movies, shows, and timely live and on-demand programming across news, sports, reality and late night. Peacock Premium will also be available for $4.99 (€4.61) per month and features more than 15,000 hours of content. Viewers may also upgrade Peacock Premium to ad-free for an additional $5.00 per month.
“We are pleased to make Peacock available to the millions of customers who access content across Xbox platforms,” commented Maggie McLean Suniewick, President, Business Development and Partnerships, Peacock. “With streaming entertainment and gaming reaching all-time highs, Xbox will be a great ongoing partner for Peacock.”
At launch, Peacock will be available for Xbox users to download through the Microsoft Store. Customers will be able to sign up for Peacock Free or upgrade to Peacock Premium directly within the Peacock app on Xbox devices using in-app purchase.
“We look forward to working with Microsoft, bringing Peacock to the Xbox platform and expanding the growing options people have to access our content at national launch,” said Matt Bond, Chairman, Content Distribution, NBCUniversal.
In April 2020, Peacock’s early preview rolled out to eligible Comcast’s Xfinity X1 and Flex customers at no additional cost. Peacock will also be bundled and included at no additional cost for eligible Cox Contour customers later this year.
