You will also access the next-day airing of current NBC hits, Telemundo content, watch the English Premier League, and stream every shows and movie available on the platform.
- Peacock Premium Plus: With Premium Plus, you will access everything on the platform without ads. That includes next-day access to current NBC hits. You can also watch select titles offline on mobile.
- Free Plan: The free plan does not have any NBC content. Although you will get thousands of hours of movies and TV shows, you will not access full episodes.
Because of streaming rights, some programs on Peacock will have ads, regardless of the plan you choose. That includes Peacock channels, events, and a small number of movies and shows.
Peacock TV is available on PlayStation 4, and you can get it by downloading the app from the PlayStation app store. But if it is unavailable, consider watching its programs on PeacockTV.com, connected TV, and streaming devices such as Roku and Chromecast.
