Peacock ends free tier for new customers
Peacock is not “free as a bird” anymore, as its ads once touted.
The streamer’s free, ad-supported tier is no longer available to new customers, our sister site Variety confirms. Instead, new users will only be able to choose from the Premium plan with ads for $4.99 per month and the Premium Plus ad-free plan for $9.99 per month. Existing customers already on Peacock’s free plan can continue to stream without paying — at least for now. Comcast and Cox cable subscribers have so far been able to access Peacock Premium for no additional cost, but that perk, too, will end at some point in the near future. MSN
