It is almost time for the launch of NBCUniversal’s streaming platform Peacock. So, now seems like a good time to discuss exactly how you can watch movies, TV shows, sports, and other goodies on Peacock.

How Much Is a Peacock Subscription?

Peacock is split into two subscriber tiers: the Free tier and the Premium tier. The ad-supported Free Peacock tier will run you $4.99/month, while the ad-free Premium Peacock tier costs $9.99/month. It’s also worth noting that, should you opt for the Free tier, NBCUniversal promises no more than five minutes of ads per hour as you stream.
