    Just seems like more dilution of TV box set rights.

    I wouldn’t expect any sports coverage on this one.

    yes, effectively. A lot of Peacock’s stuff (pr rather, the NBC back catalogue) in the US is currently with Netflix or Sky here. As with other services, expect this to be centred around Originals at first.

    Really, those promoting cord cutting as the salvation of TV may wonder if by the time you’ve paid for Netflix, Prime, Disney+, Discovey+, Apple TV+, with Peacock about to arrive, and probably still to come Paramount+, HBO Max (though probably not till 2025), and a version of Britbox (possibly with a different name and after issues with VM are sorted out), was that Sky TV or Virgin subscription really that expensive? All those €7.99s add up.

    All those €7.99s add up indeed. Or in the case of Netflix €17.99!!

    I totally get your point about cables prices VS streaming prices. But right now I'm subbing to practically every streaming service out there, as well as Sky (mainly for its HBO/Showtime content) so price-wise its the worst of both sides right now. When HBO Max eventually comes along, I think I'd be happy to ditch Sky altogether. Not quite sure if I'd be drawn in by anything on Peacock........Its been a long long time since anything on NBC ever grabbed me.
