Recently we learned that Comcast has struck a deal with A+E Networks to bring some A+E content to Comcast’s new Peacock streaming service. Cord Cutters News has since learned that Comcast is in talks with more content partners to bring additional content to Peacock.
According to our sources, Comcast plans to have the free version of Peacock be mostly NBCUniversal content. Much of the content coming from places like A+E Networks will be in the paid-only version. Comcast is likely trying to get money from Peacock to pay partners like A+E.
We are just about a month away from Peacock’s paid version going live. Customers who are not Comcast subscribers or don’t pay will need to wait a few more months for the free version of Comcast’s Peacock service to go live.
Comcast is betting big on Peacock not only for NBCUniversal but also for any content it can get rights to. It seems that Comcast also wants to turn Peacock into a Netflix-type service with a huge amount of content from different studios.
