Peacock is one of the popular streaming services offered by NBCUniversal. It was first launched in July 2020. It can now be easily downloaded like any other app on the Samsung Smart TV.

It offers its users a three-tier subscription, starting with a free option with ads and limited access to its programming. The other two tiers are Peacock Premium and Peacock Premium Plus, priced at $4.99 and $9.99 monthly. Other streaming services just like Peacock include Amazon Prime, HBO Max, Disney+, etc.
