NBC Universal Peacock Logo

Here comes the newest streaming service from the entertainment world!

NBCUniversal has unveiled the name of its new streaming service, set to launch in April of 2020.  Named Peacock, presumably after NBC’s iconic logo, the subscription-based, ad-supported, direct-to-consumer platform will launch with a lineup of more than 15,000 hours of content.

NBCUniversal plans to heavily promote Peacock during its coverage of the summer Olympics in 2020, with original programming set to launch after the Games. Bonnie Hammer, chairman of direct-to-consumer and digital enterprises, had this to say:

The name ‘Peacock’ pays homage to the quality content that audiences have come to expect from NBCUniversal — whether it’s culture-defining dramas from innovative creators like Sam Esmail, laugh-out-loud comedies from legends like Lorne Michaels and Mike Schur, blockbusters from Universal Pictures, or buzzy unscripted programming from the people who do it best at Bravo and E! Peacock will be the go-to place for both the timely and timeless — from can’t-miss Olympic moments and the 2020 election, to classic fan favorites like The Office.

Saved by the Bell Cast

In addition to new original programming and classic favorites from the NBC vault, Peacock is also working to bring viewers several highly-anticipated reboots. Fans are especially excited about Battlestar Galactica, Punky Brewster, and a potential Saved By the Bell reboot. According to The Wrap, Saved By the Bell would show us what life at Bayside would be like if Zack Morris went on to become the governor of California.

Peacock is the latest addition to an increasingly crowded streaming market. It joins other traditional media companies like Comcast, Disney, and WarnerMedia, which are taking steps to keep up with digital competitors like Netflix and Hulu. Details on Peacock’s news and sports content, pricing, and official launch date are expected to be announced in the coming weeks and months.

    I am really happy that someone agrees that streaming is crowded. It is really discouraging that NBC and Disney are both getting a service. While I am excited from the Disney one due to the endless possibilities. I am not sure what this will mean for NBC, Fox or Disney content on Hulu. Or what this means for Hulu at all and what Disney plans to do with it. Streaming is getting more complicated than just getting cable our local one is $29 a month after taxes and fees and includes a log into all the streaming services.

    I loved saved by the bell as a kid but I don’t see it making it today. I am also getting tired of each network having their own streaming channel. I mean, what’s the point of “cutting the cable cord” when you’ll pay just as much to get your subscriptions. I wonder what will even be on Netflix anymore! I will be getting Disney because my kids will make use of it but as for me, I’m gonna pass on the other subscriptions.

    I agree with the above posters. I am not going to subscribe to 10 different services in an effort to get all of my content. I want everything in one place for a reasonable price. I guess that is cable. Back to square one.

    After watching the YouTube channel “Zach Morris is Trash” I can never go back. I highly recommend it if you grew up watching Saved by the Bell and need a laugh. Just a quick warning: there is some cursing so maybe don’t screen it with your kids around.

      Wow, I just watched the first episode and it eerily reminds me of the last Presidential election. lmao

    Disney+ and Hulu will be the only streaming services I will pay for come November!! I would like to see this show but I am not paying for it. I personally do not think this streaming service will be a success for NBC.

  6. Shannon

    I have Netflix and Hulu that’s all I’m getting. If I miss some awesome shows oh well. I’ll survive lol.

  7. Sarah

    I don’t have cable or subscribe to a subscription service, I use to watch shows with the free version of Hulu and now use the NBC/CW/ABC/CBS…apps i hope they don’t stop the free content of all their programming.

  8. Beth

    I’m with you all. Not thrilled at all with another streaming service. We have Netflix and I think we’ll be doing the Disney+ service. I can’t imagine adding another one. And I whiney what will be left on Netflix! Bah.
