The streaming landscape will get a little more crowded this year with the arrival of Peacock, the streaming video service that launched in April from media conglomerate Comcast’s NBCUniversal. The service is currently available to some Comcast TV subscribers, but when it goes public July 15 it will offer multiple tiers of free and subscription-based plans offering access to a library of new and classic movies and TV series, from original projects to fan-favorite sitcoms and films.
With so many streaming services currently available and upcoming, it can be difficult to decide which ones to invest in — and what you get for your money can be as important a factor in that decision as how much you spend. In order to make that choice a little easier, we’ve put together a list of everything expected to be available on Peacock through 2021.
(Note: NBCUniversal hasn’t specified how the content on its free, ad-supported tiers and its paid, Peacock Premium tier will differ at this point, so some of the content on this list might not be available via the free tier.)
Current NBC shows
Peacock users will be able to stream new episodes of many NBC and Telemundo series the day after they air, with earlier episodes and full seasons also available to stream. Some of the shows specifically announced for next-day streaming availability include:
- America’s Got Talent: Champions

Live news segments, rebroadcasts of earlier segments, and live election coverage will be available from the company’s various news networks, including NBC News, Sky News, MSNBC, and CNBC.
Peacock is betting big on its coverage of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and is positioning Peacock as the primary hub for streaming coverage of Olympic events. The service will reportedly provide live coverage of major competitions and commentary from NBC analysts.
Premier League fans will have streaming access to 2,000 hours of programming and more than 140 live matches during the season, while golf fans will be able to stream NBC’s coverage of the Ryder Cup, with live broadcasts of key moments.
