NBCUniversal Begins Layoffs As Streaming-Driven Reshaping Takes Effect

Peacock, NBCU’s entrant into the streaming derby, launched in April in Comcast’s cable and broadband footprint and then nationally in July. Shell said it had performed better than expected, drawing 10 million sign-ups since launch, but the company has not said how many of those who signed up actually subscribed, and at which level. Peacock has two tiers – a free one and the more robust Premium one, with 20,000 hours of programming, which is also free for some customers and $5 a month for many other subscribers. An ad-free version of Premium is available for another $5 monthly charge. – Dade Hayes, Deadline Hollywood » https://ift.tt/2Pv5GlD
