- Peacock reportedly stopped offering the free tier to new subscribers.
- The free tier is still available to existing subscribers.
peacock It is one of the few free-tier big-name video streaming services, offering ads and a smaller library of content. Unfortunately, it looks like the company may end this option.
The Streamable Reports indicate that Peacock is no longer offering the free tier to new users. Instead, only new users can sign up for the Premium and Premium Plus options.
The ad-supported Premium plan costs $4.99 per month and includes a range of content (including live sports and 50 always-on channels). Meanwhile, the ad-free Premium Plus option costs $9.99 per month and offers the same perks as the premium tier plus the ability to download content for offline viewing. This level also provides access to your local NBC news channel.

Fortunately, the free tier is still available to existing subscribers for the time being. The outlet also reports that Cox Internet users, who recently lost access to the free Premium tier, can choose to stay with the free tier. That being said, this low concentration on the free level indicates that it may completely disappear at some point.
Either way, Peacock is currently running a promotion where you can get your hands on a Premium subscription for 12 months for $29.99 instead of $49.99. So new users considering joining the service may want to keep this deal in mind.
