Just a quick note that there is a new streaming service, Peacock by NBC Universal. What makes it different than Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, and other services is that it has a 100% free tier (with ads) that includes a lot of decent content including “live” channels. (I might finally watch Downton Abbey.) No free trials. You don’t even need a credit card to sign up. There are also two Premium tiers ($5/month with ad and $10/month without ads).

Small catch: NBC is negotiating with Roku and Amazon (Fire TV devices) about money, so right now you won’t find Peacock on those devices. There is an iOS app, Android app, Apple TV, Chromecast, LG/Vizio smart TV channel, XBOX One, and you can always just watch from a web browser.

  1. Solid find, Jonathan! That Apple TV app is easy to use and we were streaming some shows pretty quickly.

    By the way: the premium version is available for free with Comcast or Cox cable TV service.

  2. Unfortunately I can’t find a decent place to watch it. Its not supported on the Roku which we use for our TV. It won’t work on my desktop PCs either, complains about unsupported video configuration. I read they don’t like dual monitors or HDMI or something for some reason. They’re not making it easy.
