Peacock, the NBC-owned streaming service, is now offering its Peacock Premium plan for $1.99 a month for 12 months, a $3 a month discount over the regular $4.99 a month price.
The deal is available until September 30 and it’s only good for new customers, not existing ones.
The Premium package, which includes ads, provides more than 80,000 hours of programming plus hit movies and live sports including recent theatrical films, Notre Dame football, NFL games, MLB Sunday morning games and more. Peacock will also become the exclusive home of the soap opera, Days of Our Lives, starting September 12.
The streamer’s Premium Plus plan, which does not include ads, remains at $9.99 a month.
The discounted Premium offer can be purchased monthly for $1.99 a month or annually for $19.99. The reduced price will revert to the regular rate once the 12 months are over. (You can cancel your membership at any time.)
Peacock also has a free plan which includes more than 10,000 hours of programming.
