Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers are moving to primetime… sort of.
Those who subscribe to the Premium tier of Peacock, NBCUniversal’s upcoming streaming service, will have early access every day to episodes of “The Tonight Show” and “Late Night.” Beginning in July, “The Tonight Show” will available to stream at 8 p.m. ET, with “Late Night” coming on at 9 p.m. ET.
The early-viewing option is available only to those who subscribe to the Premium tier option, which will be available at no extra cost to Comcast and Cox subscribers. For everyone else, the Premium tier option is available for either $4.99 — or $9.99 for an ad-free experience.
NBCUniversal announced Thursday that Peacock will launch on April 15 for Comcast Xfinity X1 and Flex subscribers, before rolling out nationwide on July 15. It will have two pricing tiers.
The ad-free option, called Peacock Free, will include next-day access to current seasons of freshman broadcast series on NBC, as well as library content and curated daily news and sports programming. As for Peacock originals, this option only includes “select” episodes as well as access to what Peacock is calling “streaming genre channels” like “SNL Vault,” “Family Movie Night” and “Olympic Profiles.”
The second tier, called Peacock Premium, features everything on the Free option but includes all Peacock Originals, early access to late-night series and more sports including Premier League soccer.
