As Peacock is preparing for widespread launch after only being available for Comcast users for months, it looks like users of Android and Android TV will be getting Peacock Premium free through October.
Peacock launched back in April for Comcast subscribers, and it is only going to become available for everyone starting on July 15th. At the time of launch, Peacock will offer a free tier with more than 7,500 hours of movies, shows, live, and on-demand programming.
There’s also going to be Peacock Premium, which offers 15,000 hours of content. As mentioned, the great news is that Android and Android TV users will receive complimentary access to Peacock Premium until October 15th, 2020. When the promo ends, Peacock Premium will cost $4.99 per month on Android and Android TV via Google Play in-app purchase. If you want the ad-free tier, you’ll have to pay an extra $5 per month, for a total of $9.99.
“Given Google’s extensive customer reach, millions of people will be able to start streaming Peacock on their preferred platform or device this July,” said Maggie McLean Suniewick, President, Business Development and Partnerships, Peacock. “We’ve made Peacock free to our distribution partners, including Google, because we want people everywhere to stream Peacock, and the Peacock Premium promotion demonstrates our commitment to providing incredible value for our mutual customers.”
