The NBCUniversal platform presented this Tuesday will have up to 3000 hours of content from Telemundo and will premiere an original production in Spanish: Armas de mujer.
This Tuesday, NBCUniversal made the surprise announcement that its anticipated OTT platform will finally be launched in April and be named Peacock.
The announcement was made together with the reveal of the first original productions for the platform, which confirmed some classic titles that will be part of its offer, such as The Office, Parks & Recreation, Cheers or Will & Grace, among others.
And as the hours go by, new details emerge, such as the confirmation that the OTT will also be the home of Telemundo’s series.
According to the company, Peacock will feature over 3000 hours of Telemundo content, including hits like The Queen of the South, Betty in NY, El barón or Prisoner Number 1.
And in addition, it was revealed that the OTT will also have original productions in Spanish, starting with the dramedy Armas de mujer.
All in all, the platform will have over 15,000 hours of content between series from NBC, movies from Universal Pictures, Focus Features, DreamWorks Animation, Illumination and the main Hollywood studios.
It will also offer news, sports (including the 2020 Olympics), realities and late-night shows.
The price is still TBA, but according to Steve Burke, CEO of NBCU, it will have advertising and be “very different” from Netflix.
In January, rumors said the OTT would be free for Comcast pay TV subscribers and that the price for the rest would be around US$ 12 a month.
