Peacock will be available on Microsoft's Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One S and Xbox One X, when it launches nationally on July 15. Customers will be able to sign up for Peacock Free or upgrade to Peacock Premium directly within the Peacock app on Xbox devices using in-app purchase.

NBC has announced that the service will be fully integrated with the Apple TV app, allowing customers to stream on the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Apple TV. There will also be a Peacock Premium tier available for $4.99 per month with over 15,000 hours of content. "Apple will be a key launch platform for Peacock".

The company said that with so many Americans stuck at home because of the virus, Comcast is evaluating an earlier launch date for Peacock, but for now July is still the target. At that time it will have a free, ad-supported tier with 7,500 hours of live and on-demand movies and TV content.

We Have a New Slogan
The devolved governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have already extended the lockdown for another three weeks. In her turn, Northern Ireland's First Minister Arlene Foster said that it was right to stick with the original slogan.

Plenty of "classic" television episodes will be available, including popular series "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation", which will appear exclusively on the service, as well as "30 Rock", "Battlestar Galactica", "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", "Cheers", "Frasier", "House", "Monk", "Saturday Night Live", and numerous other NBC broadcast or produced shows. "We look forward to bringing Peacock to Apple customers when we launch around the U.S.in July, capitalizing on Apple's incredible reach and connecting with millions of viewers across their devices".

Also in the mix will be hundreds of movies like the "Jurassic Park" franchise, "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial", "Meet the Parents" and "Shrek" as well as daily programming highlights from "Today", "NBC Nightly News", "Meet the Press", "Noticias Telemundo", MSNBC, CNBC, NBC Sports, E!
