Sky Q, Sky Glass and NOW customers will obtain hundreds of latest reveals and movies for FREE tomorrow
Sky Q, Sky Glass and NOW subscribers will find thousands of new box sets and blockbusters on their TVs tomorrow morning. After confirming plans to bring US streaming service Peacock to its 20 million customers as early as July, Sky will flip the switch and roll out rivals Netflix and Prime Video to its customers overnight. Better still, Sky customers don’t have to spend a penny to unlock the exclusive new drama series, hit reality shows, movies, and popular favorites from the past, all of which are included as part of the service’s first foray outside of the United States.
Peacock is one of several new streaming services slated to launch on Sky Q, Sky Glass, and NOW in the coming weeks. Paramount +, the streaming platform owned and operated by Paramount Pictures and with over 10,000 hours of content, will go to hardware from Sky early next year. Like the launch of Peacock, this new streaming service will be integrated into Sky’s existing pricing plans at no additional cost.
In addition to an extensive back catalog of successful dramas, comedies, reality shows and Hollywood blockbusters, Peacock will also bring a number of new original productions. Sky subscribers can tune in to the Saved by the Bell revival as well as Rutherford Falls, Punky Brewster, The Girl in the Woods, Five Bedrooms and Vanderpump Rules. Upcoming Peacock shows, like the dramatization of the events covered in the Tiger King documentary aired on Netflix, called Joe Exotic and starring Kate McKinnon and Kyle MacLachlan, will be coming to Sky Q and Sky Glass very soon. All-new shows such as Vampire Academy, Irreverent, The Innocent, The Resort, The Missing, The Best Man, Angelyne, Ted, and Battlestar Galactica, which are exclusive to Peacock subscribers in the US, will be arriving soon on Sky Set-Top Boxes .
For those who watch Sky channels on NOW, formerly NOW TV, these shows will be added to the entertainment membership.
Other highlights from the Peacock library include The Office (US), Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Psych, Superstore, AP Bio, The Mindy Project, Will & Grace, Mr. Mayor, Young Rock and Saturday Night Live, as well as popular dramas such as Battlestar Galactica, Monk, Bates Motel, Heroes, Friday Night Lights, 12 Monkeys, Downton Abbey, House, Suits, Quantum Leap, Warehouse 13, The Equalizer and Grimm, and pre-screened hits like Keeping Up With The Kardashian, Million Dollar Listing , Below Deck and The Real Housewives.
Peacock also features some must-watch films, including Bird on a Wire, Bowfinger, Brüno, Bulletproof, Children of Men, Definitely, Maybe, Far and Away, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Game, Hanna, Hannibal, The Last House on the Left, MacGruber, A Million Ways to Die in the West, meet Joe Black, O Brother, Where Art Thou ?, Out of Sight, Pride & Prejudice, Scent of a Woman, Seed of Chucky, A Simple Wish, The Skeleton Key, Tower Heist, United 93, Very Bad Dinge what dreams can come and You, me and Dupree.
“Following the successful gradual roll-out in the US, we are excited to celebrate the international debut of Peacock content in the UK and Ireland on Sky,” said Lee Raftery, managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at NBCUniversal. “Peacock offers Sky customers an expanded catalog of world-class content, including many of our most popular films and shows from Peacock and NBCUniversal.”
While Peacock will be available to Sky Q, Sky Glass and NOW customers in the UK tomorrow morning, it will take a little longer to roll out across Europe. Sky platforms in Germany, Italy, Austria and Switzerland are expected to receive the update with Peacock in the coming months and make it available to almost 20 million Sky customers across the continent by 2022.
