Yet Another Streamer, but Great Content and Free
Final Verdict

Peacock brings NBCUniversal’s century of movie and TV heritage to deliver a solid new streaming service. When it launches nationally in July, the free and low-cost access options will get people to pay attention. The only real complaint about Peacock is how difficult it is to search for the content you like.

At the same time, Peacock is yet another streaming service competing for your wallet. If you have Xfinity broadband, you can get it for free right now. For everyone else, the wait for July may be too long.
