Premium (4-Month Plan) (small)

Peacock is one of the cheapest streaming services available, with a free option that includes over 13,000-hours of movies and shows. If you want access to the platform’s full library, however, you’ll have to purchase a Peacock Premium plan. For a limited time, new subscribers can get four months of Peacock Premium for 50% off.

With the deal, members can lock in four months of Peacock Premium for a one-time payment of $10. The plan usually costs $5 a month, which would come out to $20 for four months. The promotion expires on April 9. After the four months are up, your subscription will renew automatically for the regular $5 monthly price, but you can cancel at any time.

The Peacock deal comes at an ideal time for wrestling fans. Starting March 18, Peacock Premium will become the new home for WWE Network content. This includes access to pay-per-view events as part of your subscription. The first WWE PPV events on Peacock will be “Fastlane” on March 21 and “WrestleMania” on April 10.

Comedies from NBC’s past are also available on Peacock Premium. Unlike the free Peacock plan that only offers the first two seasons of “The Office,” Peacock Premium lets you binge-watch every episode. There’s also a number of original shows and classic movies, including the “Harry Potter” series.

“The Office” left Netflix on January 1, and superfans are feeling the pain. 

The move had been teased by NBC since 2019, when CEO Steve Burke announced the network’s own streaming service to rival Netflix. The departure of the cult series deals a blow to Netflix, as it was the streaming giant’s most popular show.

NBCUniversal acquired “The Office” from Netflix for a reported $100 million, according to NBC News. Netflix bid $90 million to keep the series. 

Many Netflix subscribers unaware of the approaching departure date awoke in 2021 to find the series was no longer on the service. Fans then flocked to Twitter over the long weekend to mourn the loss.

The series isn’t gone from the internet forever though. 

Netflix subscribers in the UK can now stream the series. But for those outside of the UK, it is now only available to stream on NBC Universal’s Peacock service. The first two seasons are available for free (with ads), while the rest are behind a $5-a-month paywall. Along with the rest of the series, subscribers will have access to deleted content and scenes that hadn’t aired. 

Peacock will also debut “The Office Zen,” a 24/7 channel “devoted to the sights and sounds of the office for anyone working at home,” according to the show’s official webpage.
