Today Peacock announced that for the first time since it launched three years ago, it will be raising its price. Pricing will be going up between $1 a month and $2 a month, depending on what package you subscribe to.
If you subscribe to the ad-supported plan, your price will go up $1 to $5.99 a month. If you subscribe to the ad-free Peacock Premium Plus, you will see your price go up $2 a month to $11.99.
The price hike will go into effect for new subscribers today, and current subscribers will see the price go up on their first bill after August 17th, 2023.
