NBCUniversal's new streaming service, Peacock, will debut in April 2020.

The service, featuring over 15,000 hours of content, will deliver a slate of original hits, like “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” the company announced Tuesday.

Peacock will also feature critically-acclaimed films from Universal Pictures, Focus Features, DreamWorks Animation and Illumination. In addition, Peacock will tap into a wide range of content across news, sports, late-night and reality.

“The name Peacock pays homage to the quality content that audiences have come to expect from NBCUniversal – whether it’s culture-defining dramas from innovative creators like Sam Esmail, laugh-out-loud comedies from legends like Lorne Michaels and Mike Schur, blockbusters from Universal Pictures, or buzzy unscripted programming from the people who do it best at Bravo and E!,” said Bonnie Hammer, Chairman of Direct-to-Consumer and Digital Enterprises. “Peacock will be the go-to place for both the timely and timeless – from can’t-miss Olympic moments and the 2020 election, to classic fan favorites like ‘The Office’.”

Peacock's pricing details will be announced closer to launch, but it will be both advertising and subscription-supported.
