Yeah-I was thinking about doing it.
I have a Toshiba Amazon Fire TV.
It looks like with the update that you can finally change the screen size.

Re: Peacock -- NBC Universal streaming service

So I guess the Superbowl will be streaming via Peacock? I have the top-tier plan, so I assume it will be there. I normally don't pay attention, but since it's going to be held out here, when in Rome and all that.

I don't have network TV, because I never bought the antenna adapter thing or whatever. I figure since it's already in my workflow, just Peacock it via the PS5 or ATV4K app.

Better picture/sound quality. I have YTTV. They don't have DD 5.1 and the picture quality is subpar.

According to Twitter and their page, the SB will be on there .
Thinking about signing up just for the SB. Are there any codes out there? I couldn't find any. It looks like the regular $4.99/month sub will work.

My AMEX card has a promo that refunds you $4.99 for 3 months.

Watching Superbowl and the feed looks and sounds great. No pixelation or lag whatsoever.

You get the $4.99 plan free with Cox and Infinity. Spectrum TV users get it free for a year while Spectrum Internet get 90 days free.

If you follow Yellowstone, but didn't watch it week to week and subscribe to Peacock, Yellowstone season 4 will be on the service on March 28th

Re: Peacock -- NBC Universal streaming service

I signed up with Peacock for Yellowstone, am 5 episodes into season 1. Good stuff...I wish there was a No Ad version of Peacock though, fucking annoying.

This streamer is pretty solid though. Added some other shows I've been meaning to watch like Ray Donovan. Also carries alot of great true crime documentaries

Re: Peacock -- NBC Universal streaming service

I have the no-ad version paid in full for the year and just watched the first two episodes of Miami Vice series and see that Peacock inserts 3 very short ads for their own programming in the episodes. They're about 5 seconds or so long. Not a deal breaker at all, because it must be due to certain rights on certain series that they do this on. Miami Vice is the only series I've seen ads for and I've watched quite a few of their programming for months now and no ads before.

Yellowstone ads are atrocious. Iím guessing the more popular/newer titles are getting the much longer forced ads, older catalog way less.

So you get $4.39 off vs paying $49.99 for the annual price? Pass.

Re: Peacock -- NBC Universal streaming service

Someone tried to hack into my Peacock account last night. I got an email saying if it was me that logged in on a Roku from Montebello, CA. I don’t share my account info and don’t know anyone there.

Changed my password right away. Be careful with your streaming services.

A month ago someone hacked into my Disney + account as I started noticing some mysterious watched movies.

Peacock announced today three upcoming original films scheduled to premiere on the service in 2023: Shooting Stars, Praise This, and The Killer. Each film is part of the previously announced collaboration with Universal Pictures to produce a number of films made exclusively for Peacock.

We know people join Peacock to watch movies, so we are constantly adding more to serve fans,” said Kelly Campbell, President, Peacock and Direct-to-Consumer and International, NBCUniversal. “Together with the Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, we are excited to deliver fresh, exclusive, original films next year to our customers in addition to the legendary Universal Pictures blockbuster films and beloved franchises streaming now.”

The Peacock Originals coming in 2023 from Universal Pictures include the following films:
  • Peacock will be home to the first film from NBCUniversal’s production deal with LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Company. Shooting Stars follows LeBron’s origin story as a high-school basketball player and is currently being filmed in his hometown of Akron. Academy Award-nominees Rachel Winter and Terence Winter are producing along with The SpringHill Company.
  • From producer Will Packer, who also produced Girls Trip, comes Praise This, starring Chloe Bailey as the newest member of a community's church choir who pushes her members in a hipper musical direction and whose involvement with an irreverent hip-hop star may kick off—or jeopardize—her own musical career.
  • And celebrated action auteur John Woo returns to reimagine and direct his own classic, The Killer.

These new, exclusive original films will join Peacock’s catalogue as the service continues to expand with a range of films for every fan and occasion.

Re: Peacock -- NBC Universal streaming service

Lionsgate has signed a multi-year movie output deal with Peacock for all theatrically released Lionsgate films starting with the studio’s 2022 slate.

The agreement with the NBCUniversal streaming platform brings movies exclusively to Peacock and NBCUniversal networks for their Pay 2 window, starting in 2024. The first Lionsgate film to hit Peacock will be The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, starring Nicolas Cage.

Other titles in the agreement include John Wick: Chapter 4, the Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Expendables 4, Borderlands and Kelly Fremon Craig’s Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, produced by Oscar winner James L. Brooks and adapted from the Judy Blume classic.

Lionsgate recently unveiled a film output deal with The Roku Channel that offers that platform the exclusive rights to Lionsgate’s film slate immediately after the first pay theatrical window on Starz. A first short-term window will be followed by a second and more flexible window at a later date.

“These agreements affirm the great demand for first-run studio movies across every kind of platform – AVOD, SVOD, basic cable and FAST,” Lionsgate president of worldwide television distribution Jim Packer said in a statement.
