Peacock TV is one of the latest premium video streaming services owned by NBC. They have joined the fast-growing video streaming service market and already have so much to offer. Named after the network’s colorful, brilliant bird logo, Peacock TV will be featuring tons of program options from NBC’s original shows and more.
You can access this impending extravagant subscription and streaming service whenever it hosts NBC Universal’s programs together with media content from Marvel, Universal Pictures, Dreamworks Animation, Focus-Features, and other of its 42 television channels like Telemundo. Recently, they have added the WWE network to the plethora of programs that they have lined up.
One downside about this flamboyant network is that it is only available in the United States, and unfortunately for non-US residents, using a VPN doesn’t work as the TV has blocked VPN usage.
