Peacock is the super-weirdest of the trial services:I’d be curious to see numbers - which these companies aren’t likely to release - to see how many people go for one tier vs another. Initially I said I had no interest in Peacock but I ended up signing up for the free version because I had wanted to see some Alfred Hitchcock Presents and that was where it lived. The free version only made me watch one fifteen second ad per episode. That wasn’t unreasonable to me. It was a better solution for me than ordering a disc and waiting for it to arrive all to see one or two episodes, when it was just a whim I wanted to indulge in that second.
I don’t know if that’s the standard Peacock experience but a 15 second ad to watch one 30 minute program was a balance I could live with.
Free + Ads + random subset of shows.
I gave Peacock a look. And the shows have some seasons, but not all the seasons. Or some episodes. but not all the episodes. It is bizarre and unlike any other service I've used, and now I've used a lot.
I started watching Warehouse 13 (because I really enjoyed Eureka, and W13 is a successor), but it wasn't interesting, and I haven't looked at Peacock since.
