Peacock to roll up its Subscription Rates by August 17

New Delhi:- Peacock brings bad news to its subscribers tonight. As of 12 pm EDT, the streamer will notify existing customers that they will be increasing their subscription prices on August 17th. This change affects new customers immediately. This is the first price increase for Peacock since its launch.

Users will have to pay $5.99 instead of $4.99 per month for premium (with ads). Premium Plus (no ads), on the other hand, increases by $2 to $11.99 per month. The reason for the change, according to the company, is so that it can continue to invest in providing high-quality content and user experience.

And with competitors such as Netflix and Max charging upwards of $19.99 per month, the price hike will allow Peacock to remain competitive in the market. Last year, Apple TV+ subscription prices increased to $6.99 per month.

Paramount+ also recently increased its advertising plans to $5.99 per month and its new ad-free slot, Paramount+ with Showtime, to $11.99. Peacock is priced the same as Paramount+, but that doesn't mean the streaming service has dozens of Showtime Originals to brag about.

But the streamer is promoting a live sports service that it describes as the largest direct-to-consumer streaming service in the US, with over 5,000 hours of content. These include the Women's World Cup, Sunday Night Football, Premier League, Big 10, and more.
