Peacock debuts nationwide, but some content is already leaving

NBC’s official streaming service, Peacock, is officially available nationwide, but you’d better act fast if you want to stream certain titles.

Both “Evan Almighty” and the first “Fast & the Furious” films are set to leave July 16, just one day after launch. franchise. But set to leave within the next few weeks are:

  • Dead Silence (7/27)
  • In Good Company (7/27)
  • The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything Wrong (7/29)
  • The Story of Us (7/29)
  • All That Heaven Allows (7/31)
  • Creature From the Black Lagoon (7/31)
  • Frailty (7/31)
  • Idlewild (7/31)
  • Joe (7/31)
  • The Blair Witch Project (8/1)
  • Blair Witch 2 (8/1)
  • Blood Ties (8/1)
  • Cesar Chavez (8/1)
  • Children of Men (8/1)
  • Drive Angry (8/1)

  • Jurassic Park (8/1)
  • Jurassic Park: The Lost World (8/1)

  • The Matrix (8/1)
  • The Matrix Reloaded (8/1)
  • The Matrix Revolutions (8/1)
  • The Mummy (8/1)
  • The Mummy Returns (8/1)

Why? Well, the world of streaming rights is a complicated one, and since these films hit streaming services before the market became so fractured, their rights are tied up elsewhere. NBC has told customers to expect a rotating slate of content, but it’s a bit jarring to see things departing so soon to be sure.

Of course, there’s still plenty of content to be had. It’s estimated that the service carries over 20,000 hours of programming including original, current and classic shows.

If you’re not familiar with Peacock, it does have a “free” section that’s no charge. The ad-supported tier for everything else is $4.99 while the ad-free version is $9.99 a month.
