Peacock, NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, will be available on Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PlayStation 4 systems starting the week of July 20th, shortly after Peacock’s national launch across the US tomorrow (July 15th).
Peacock will offer a robust free tier of movies, shows and timely live and on-demand programming across news, sports, reality and late night. For more content, Peacock Premium will also be available for $4.99 per month. Viewers may also upgrade Peacock Premium to an ad-free tier for an additional $5.00 per month.
“We are thrilled to bring Peacock to the millions of people who consume content on PlayStation 4,” said Maggie McLean Suniewick, President, Business Development and Partnerships, Peacock. “We’ve made Peacock free to our distribution partners like Sony Interactive Entertainment so anyone can stream Peacock anywhere they choose.”
Peacock will be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro, and Peacock will curate an always-on editorial row that features currently available content.
“As we bring Peacock to our fans wherever they consume media, device partners like PlayStation are invaluable in giving people even more places to watch the programming they’ve come to enjoy,” added Matt Bond, Chairman, Content Distribution, NBCUniversal. “We look forward to Peacock being at the forefront of the PlayStation experience.”
