New Peacock Streaming Platform's Mini-Preview

https://www.peacocktv.com/

I thought all of you here might want to know the official website for the Peacock streaming service is now up and running in a limited way.  

There is not much there right now.  Although you have the option to enter your own email address for more alerts and information as it happens.  I entered mine!  Perhaps you might want to as well.  So you won't miss the debut & sign up of this platform in just a few months. 

I do hope that Roku will offer this app/channel on it's Channel Store when the time comes.

lOOks like a cool phenomenon to happen.

I also hope they create a Roku Channel.

We should ask Peacock or MSNBC for it.

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

So is it "free" ad supported and $5 to remove the ads?  That might be worth it.  If it is $5 for simply "less ads", not sure I can play that game.

If I remember: Free=limited selection of shows with ads. $5=all shows with ads (Comcast TV users will get this version for free I think.)

That's unfortunate.

I'm giving Peacock a month after it's July debut to see what exactly is offered-especially for the new original content that's promised.  If I like the complete line up offered, I'll subscribe for 5 dollars a month for all content with some ads thrown in to help pay for my viewing as the free option does automatically.   If not, I'll continue on with the just the freebie option.

I recommend a "wait and see" approach, then go from there.  I believe in giving the emerging streaming platform a chance.

Yeah, I would at least give it a go.  But I'd rather pay something like $10 to remove ads entirely.  Paying to limit ads isn't something I'm personally interested in.  For some people, sure that's OK for them.  Just not anything I'd willingly do.

One of Streaming's own strengths is the great choice that each participant has.  All is needed is to freely exercise it.

Peacock on the Clock: Roku, Amazon and Google App Deals Remain...

"With 35 days to go before ad-supported and subscription iterations of Peacock launch beyond the Comcast pay TV ecosystem, NBCU still hasn’t locked up deals with Roku and Amazon to get support for the Peacock app on the Nos. 1 and 2 device platforms. And Peacock also doesn’t have yet in place a deal with Google for the top mobile platform, Android, as well as connected TV device ecosystems Android TV and Chromecast."
