Peacock Live Channels?

Will MSNBC and CNBC be live channels on Peacock?

 

It would be nice to be able to trade my Sling News add on for Peacock.

 

Without those live channels Peacock really has no value to me.

Use the Xfinity Stream app instead until full release.

Per this link content from those channels will be accessible

Re: Peacock Live Channels?

Thanks for the reply, but it's not really what I'm looking for.

 

"Curated Channels
Streaming channels with clips of the best Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers comedy sketches; the best sketches from the SNL Vault; news channels from NBC News Now and Sky News; and genre channels like True Crime, Reality Check-In and ’80s Mix Tape

 

News and Pop Culture

  • Daily news, sports and entertainment highlights from “Today,” “NBC Nightly News,” “Meet the Press,” “Noticias Telemundo,” MSNBC, CNBC, NBC Sports, E! News and “Access Hollywood,” curated in playlists"

Curated highlight reels are a far cry from live news channels.

Re: Peacock Live Channels?

I ONLY pay $50/month for Comcast internet therefore I don't have the privilege of watching most of their in-house commercial packed live TV on any platform

 

I kind of assumed they would put all the Comcast owned cable channels live on Peacock.

 

Maybe it will take a few million more losses of cable subs before management realizes people are done paying $50+ /month to watch 15+ minutes of commercials per hour.

CBS has CBS all access and now NBC has Peacock.

 

Could have just called it NBC all access but I guess Peacock sounded better to whoever decided the name.
