Will there be a Peacock Black Friday deal? What to expect in 2023

Peacock is NBC’s somewhat new streaming service, with unique features like live TV, local TV, and on demand content, and it’s gone through several changes recently. It started with a free tier, which was removed in January. It now only has two plans, Peacock Premium and Peacock Plus. At $6 and $12 per month respectively, those plans are still some of the cheapest options available when it comes to the best streaming services. Hopefully that price will go down during Black Friday. Here’s everything we know about the potential for a Peacock Black Friday deal.

Will there be a Peacock Black Friday deal?

Peacock hasn’t announced an official Black Friday deal yet. If they did, no one would sign up in October. But we can assume that there will be a deal based on what happened last year. During Black Friday 2022, Peacock discounted the Premium plan to just $1 per month for a year. It was part of a popular promo code, ‘SAVEBIG,’ that cut the price significantly. It’s safe to say that Peacock will likely have another discount, although it might not bring the service all the way down to a dollar. Last Black Friday, Peacock only cost $5 per month. It’s gone up to $6 this year, so the promo code will more likely bring the service down to $2 or $1.50 per month. But again, there is no confirmation of a discount yet from Peacock.

What’s the cheapest way to get Peacock Premium now?

The cheapest way to get Peacock Premium right now is through a student discount. If you have a student email from an accredited university, you can get Peacock Premium for only $2 per month instead of $6. Peacock will ask to confirm that you are a student once per year. All you’ll need is a student email. If you’re not a student, there is unfortunately no Peacock discount right now, and not even a Peacock free trial. The service discontinued its entire free tier in January of 2023. You can either wait for Black Friday, with the hope that Peacock will see a similar discount to last year, or suck it up and buy the $6 per month subscription.

How to watch every NFL game in one place in 2023 [Sponsored]
Man watching NFL on Dish.

Live sports have a broadcasting problem, as many are figuring out. Even with a variety of streaming services easily accessible, regular broadcasts are being split up piecemeal between them. It means even if you're only following one team, your favorite team, you must spread your time between several networks just to watch the complete season. But what if we told you there was a way to watch them all in one place, or rather to watch every single NFL game in the rest of the season through one network? That place is Dish Network, and allow us to explain.

Dish Network offers a variety of broadcast channels, allowing you to catch the regular NFL season, the Playoffs, and the Super Bowl, including even pre-season football games, all in one place. ESPN+, CBS, ESPN, NFL Network, they're all here. You'll never miss a game again -- college ball, either. NFL RedZone from the NFL Network is available too. Want to know something even crazier? You can watch up to four live sports games at once with Dish's multi-view feature.

The best movies on Peacock right now (November 2023)
Robert De Niro and Don Rickles in Casino.

Halloween Horror is now a thing of the past on Peacock, at least until next year. Now Peacock can shift the focus away from horror flicks and back to some of the best titles from the film catalog of Universal Pictures. There are even some movies on loan from other studios, including The Hunger Games, and the first three John Wick films. This month also features the return to Peacock of Martin Scorsese's Casino and the unforgettable Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

While Peacock has a wide selection of new titles, the streamer also has a heavy turnover from month to month. In other words, your favorite movie may be here this month, but it could just as easily be gone when December rolls around. Keep that in mind as you go over our updated list of the best movies on Peacock right now. There are two holiday weekends this month, so you have time to make your viewing plans.

Netflix free trial: Can you stream for free in 2023?
A hand points a remote at a TV display a Netflix logo screen.

Almost no one would argue that Netflix is not the godfather of streaming. It basically started the entire movie streaming concept and reinvented it when it launched its first original program, House of Cards. Even though the streaming market is a bit more crowded now, Netflix still has some unbeatable programming. Netflix prices have risen over the last few years, and there are some hints that it might keep rising. If you're thinking about joining or rejoining the streaming giant but aren't quite sure, you're probably looking for a free trial. We've collected all the information you need to know on how to save some money with a new Netflix account.
Is there a Netflix free trial?

Just as there's no Disney Plus free trial, you're out of luck if you're hoping to find a Netflix free trial on offer right now. There was a 30-day free trial in the past but Netflix scuttled it a couple of years ago, and we don't anticipate it coming back any time soon. Unlike some other streaming services (the excellent 30-day Hulu free trial comes to mind), Netflix doesn't appear to feel obliged to run free-trial offers. That's a tough break for the "try before you buy" crowd, but the sad truth is that, like Disney+, Netflix has a pretty captive audience and doesn't really need to do much to entice people to sign up. The good news is that Netflix has flexible plans, allowing you to upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your subscription at any time with no punitive fees. There are no contracts or commitments to worry about if you decide the service isn't for you, or just want to take a break for awhile.
