With Disney+ and HBO's upcoming streaming service HBO Max, NBC Universal is has released a trailer for their upcoming platform dubbed Peacock. The service comes with a lot of great shows, and even the promise of exclusive new content.

No doubt the biggest titles for the service are The Office and Parks and Recreation. The former was actually the most-watched show on Netflix, and a lot of people are really bummed that it's being pulled out; Who on Earth would be looking forward to paying for yet another streaming service?


Besides comedies, Peacock also promises to have a full roster of shows featuring different genres. On the sci-fi end, we'll be getting the reboot of Battlestar Galactica from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. We're also getting Brave New World, a series adaptation of the novel by Aldous Huxley; it's worth noting that BNW will also star Alden Ehrenreich, who played the young Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Peacock also has access to solid shows like The A-Team, House, Knight Rider, Law and Order,30 Rock, and Two and a Half Men.

Admittedly, Peacock has caught a snag when it comes to original content thanks to the Coronavirus. Despite that, there are still some shows that managed to wrap, and hopefully they'll be completed when the service launches in July.

As for cost, it's said that Peacock will run for $5 a month with ads, but if you don't want that, you can dish out $10 for an ad-free experience.

Personally, I'm not a fan of having to subscribe to multiple services to access specific content, but I guess that's where we have to go to for now. Hopefully we get a compromise soon of that will be a lot more consumer-friendly.

Peacock plans to launch nationwide on July 15.
