Fans of NBC’s current season shows will no longer find them on Hulu starting next month; will fly to NBCUniversal’s Peacock.
NBCU announced that beginning September 19, Peacock Premium will become the broadcast home for next-day access to current seasons of NBC shows the day after they air on the network. The media conglomerate had repossessed the Day After rights to NBC shows from Disney-controlled Hulu, in which NBCU still owns a one-third stake, earlier this year.
NBC series that will be available exclusively on Peacock include franchises such as Dick Wolf’s “Law & Order” trifecta and One Chicago shows, the network’s late-night lineup including “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and “Saturday Night Live,” returning series like “La Brea,” “New Amsterdam,” and “Young Rock,” and competition shows including “The Voice” and “America’s Got Talent.” They also air exclusively on Peacock new series coming to NBC this fall, including a reboot of “Quantum Leap” and “Lopez vs. Lopez”.
NBCU had already pulled Bravo’s morning-after shows from Hulu earlier this year. Peacock Premium customers have already had next-day access to Bravo series including “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” “Below Deck,” “Top Chef,” “Southern Charm” and “Watch What Happens Live.” This fall, Bravo will air new episodes of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” “Winter House,” and “Below Deck Med.”
NBCU also announced a special offer during the month of September: new Peacock Premium customers will be able to sign up for just $1.99 per month or $19.99 for one year. That compares to Peacock Premium’s regular price of $4.99/mo (with ads) or $9.99/mo (no ads).
“We are excited to provide Peacock customers with a one-stop destination to stream the incredible programming that airs on NBC and Bravo throughout the year,” said Kelly Campbell, president of Peacock and NBCUniversal direct-to-consumer, in a statement.
In the second quarter, Peacock’s paying customer base was flat at 13 million and Peacock’s overall active accounts fell by 1 million.
In addition to all of NBC and Bravo’s next-day programming, Peacock customers have access to more than 70,000 hours of original, current and classic movies and television shows, as well as sports, news and live events. The service’s titles include fan favorites like “Yellowstone” and “The Office.” New content coming to Peacock this fall includes original series “Last Light,” “Vampire Academy,” “A Friend of the Family,” “The Calling,” “Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin,” and “The Best Man: The Final Chapters”. .”
Movies landing at Peacock this fall include “Jurassic World: Dominion,” “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” “Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul”, “Beast”, “Nope” by Jordan Peele and “Meet Cute”. Live sports on the streamer include “Sunday Night Football,” exclusive soccer coverage from MLB, Premier League, WWE, IndyCar and Notre Dame and the FIFA World Cup, and much more.
