Peacock, NBC Universal’s new streaming service will be available across the United States from July 15, will be available on Google platforms and devices, including Android, Android TV, Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices, the media company has announced.
Under the agreement, Android and Android TV users will have complimentary access to Peacock Premium (with ads) by October 15, 2020.

July 15th, Peacock is set to launch extensively in several versions: here’s a free, ad-supported level that spans over 7,500 hours of movies, shows, and programming across news, sports, reality, and deep night.

For $ 9.99 a month, users can upgrade to an ad-free level of Peacock Premium.
