Why use Peacock?
It’s free and comes with some great content. Seriously, NBC has a sixty-year track record when it comes to producing high-quality TV content. Peacock combines that with NBC’s sports and news operations as well as the NBCUniversal cable channels like E! The Universal side of the house has been around for more than a century.

By using an ad-supported business model, Peacock is going to market with free access to all of that content. CBS and Disney, by contrast, charge for access to their archives. Learn everything about this streaming service in our Peacock review.
