Peacock takes over from Hulu as next-day streaming home for NBC, Bravo shows

NBCUniversal (NBCU) has confirmed that, starting from next month in the US, on-air NBC and Bravo shows will stream on Peacock, rather than Hulu, the day after they have debuted on linear.

The change, which was first announced in March, comes into effect on September 19, with NBC and Bravo shows being made available exclusively through the platform’s paid tier, Peacock Premium.

Previously, Comcast-owned NBC had a next-day TV streaming deal with Hulu, which is majority owned by Disney and minority owned by Comcast. The latter terminated its next-day streaming agreement with Hulu earlier this year.

The deal means shows such as NBC’s Saturday Night Live, America’s Got Talent, Law & Order and Young Rock plus Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Below Deck, Top Chef and Southern Charm will land on Peacock after they premiere.

“We are excited to provide Peacock customers with a comprehensive destination for streaming the incredible programming airing on NBC and Bravo all year long,” said Kelly Campbell, president of Peacock and direct-to-consumer at NBCU.

Last month, NBCU said that Peacock’s subscriber numbers had remained flat at around 13 million in the second quarter.
