You Can Get Peacock Premium for 50% Off Right Now
It seemed like streaming services started with a revolutionary idea—only paying for what you want and cutting out the rest. It worked for a while, but now it seems to have come full circle, with some services like Netflix turning their attention to an ads revenue strategy to sustain themselves. Peacock—which you can get for 50% off for a year right now—is the epitome of the full circle “new-wave” of TV streaming. So what does it get you?
What is Peacock Premium?
Peacock is NBCUniversal’s streaming service that offers on-demand shows and movies, including Peacock original content. Peacock Premium is the basic tier of the plan, which is usually $50 for a yearly plan, or $5 a month. You get live sports and events, including Premier League, WWE, Sunday Night Football, and MLB Sunday Leadoff; more than 50 channels (see the full list here); Spanish channels like Telemundo; and access to their original shows like Poker Face, Sick, Bel Air, and Love Island USA.

What you don’t get with Peacock Premium that you do get with the Plus plan (which costs $10 a month) is the ability to download and watch certain content offline; 24/7 access to your local NBC channel; and probably most importantly, an ad-free streaming experience.
How to get Peacock Premium for a year for 50% off
To get Peacock Premium for 50% off, or $2.50 per month for a year, go to their check-out where you will have to create an account. Once you do, click on “Have a promo code?” and type “UMRWKXQECB.” You should then see your monthly total drop to $2.50.
