Peacock stepping up

There are lots of little things I don't like about Peacock TV. Every bit of the problem is related to the user interface. Features that I don't like or want because they don't have them. But one thing that isn't a problem is the content. Good content can cause a person to overlook a lot of other issues.

Peacock TV has some really good content. Of course, the NBCUniversal library is huge and contains some really good stuff. So yeah, it's expected that Peacock would have good content.

Recently, though, they did something I didn't expect. I saw it and thought perhaps I wasn't seeing what I was seeing. But there it was. Jurassic World Dominion was streaming on Peacock.

My first thought was that it was the previous movie, Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, but nope, this was the recent movie. As in the movie that was released in the USA less than 90 days ago and had nearly one billion dollars in box office receipts. That movie.

Right now, if you want to watch that movie, you can simply watch it on Peacock. You don't have to buy it. If you are an Xfinity Internet customer, you get Peacock for free. If not, it's $5/month. You could watch Jurassic World Dominion for 720 hours straight for $5.

Peacock has the movie for the next four months, before it moves to Amazon Prime Video for 10 months, back to Peacock for four more months, then on to Starz.

I've seen where films have been available for home rental while still in theaters, but this is available for watching on a high quality, low price streaming service. Peacock is doing its best to be a part of your Streaming Life. Moves like this help.
