Peacock Launches Election Section with News, Documentaries & Entertainment





Peacock is gearing up for the 2020 election with a new hub under the Vote tab. The new section provides easy access to live coverage, on-demand content, and channels, including a new, exclusive news commentary channel, The Choice.

“We know the upcoming election is top of mind for viewers, so this destination makes content even easier to find,” said Jen Brown, Senior Vice President of Topical Programming and Development for Peacock. “We always want to provide depth and breadth of content on Peacock, especially on major news nights.”
