Comcast will launch its new Peacock streaming service April 15 for current Comcast subscribers and July 15 for other consumers in multiple free, ad-supported and pay subscription tier options, the company disclosed Jan. 16 at an investor meeting in New York that was webcast.

“We have been quietly working on Peacock for the last 18 months,” according to Steve Burke, chairman of NBCUniversal and senior executive vice president of Comcast. “We haven’t talked much about it for competitive reasons and because we think we’ve identified a very unique approach” that takes advantage of the company’s strengths, he said.

Peacock Free is an ad-supported option that Comcast said will feature more than 7,500 hours of programming, including next-day access to current seasons of freshman broadcast series, complete classic series, popular movies, curated daily news and sports programming including the Olympics, Spanish-language content, select episodes of “marquee” Peacock originals and tent-pole series, as well as curated Peacock streaming genre channels including “SNL Vault,” “Family Movie Night” and “Olympic Profiles.”

Peacock Premium will offer more than 15,000 hours of content and an ad-supported version of it will come bundled at no additional cost to 24 million Comcast and Cox TV service subscribers, Comcast said. It will also be made available for $4.99 a month on “all popular connected mobile and web devices for non-bundled customers,” it disclosed. Comcast expects to bundle Peacock Premium with additional partners in the coming months, it said.
