Have you been considering trying Peacock?
The time to commit may be now.
The NBCUniversal-backed video streaming service is offering a 60% discount on annual subscriptions for a limited time.
And since Peacock is the streaming home for popular shows like “The Office,” “Yellowstone” and “Parks and Recreation,” there’s a chance you could quickly get your money’s worth with this streaming deal.
‘Summer of Peacock’ Promotion Offers Limited-Time Discount
Peacock is offering a “Summer of Peacock” discount for new customers.
You can get one year of Peacock Premium for $19.99 by using the code “SUMMEROFPEACOCK” when purchasing the annual subscription on Peacock’s website.
The regular price for this subscription is either $4.99 per month or $49.99 for the annual subscription, so you can lock in some significant savings if you jump on this deal.
The promotional period began on May 24, 2023 and will run until June 12, according to the fine print of the offer.
This deal is good only for new customers, so existing subscribers of Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus won’t be able to take advantage of it.
(If you’re a subscriber, you may want to see if another member of your household is eligible for the cheaper price.)
Peacock Premium: What’s Included?
The Peacock Premium subscription tier blends on-demand content, which includes the library of popular shows such as “The Office” and “Yellowstone”, with live TV streaming options.
It is an ad-supported tier of the service, so you can expect commercials sprinkled into your TV shows and movies.
In addition to legacy NBCUniversal TV shows and movies, Peacock Premium also features shows that are exclusive to the Peacock app called “Peacock Originals.”
The live TV streaming includes English Premier League (EPL) soccer, exclusive Sunday morning MLB games in the summer, Sunday Night Football in the fall, summer and winter Olympics, WWE events and various other sporting events. It also has news content from NBC News and MSNBC.

Xfinity Internet Customers Soon Will Lose Free Peacock Premium
It’s not all good news during the “Summer of Peacock.”
Xfinity internet customers have received a complimentary subscription to Peacock Premium since the streaming service launched in July 2020. But that perk is going away soon.
Xfinity has informed their internet customers that Peacock Premium will no longer be free beginning June 26, 2023.
This is likely because Comcast Xfinity would like to sell them that Peacock Premium subscription as part of its new $20 streaming bundle called NOW TV.
If you’re an internet subscriber looking for a way to keep your Premium subscription on the cheap, it may be worth seeing if a member of your household not named on the current subscription could sign up as a new customer to get the $19.99 deal.
This promotion is pricing a year’s worth of the NBCUniversal service well below the monthly cost of each of those.
If you’re a fan of one or two of the popular TV shows that are exclusive to Peacock, a full year of Premium for $20 is a very good deal. That’s less than $2 per month!
