Besides being the only place where you can stream The Office, Parks and Recreation, and Battlestar Galactica (big early-2000s energy here), Peacock also carries 15,000 hours of movies, TV shows, and sports events. But it’s not equal in all areas.
Peacock is best for streaming TV series—both older shows and current day-after-broadcast NBC titles—and its growing stable of gut-splitting originals like Girls5eva and MacGruber. Its middling movie library is no threat to HBO Max or Paramount+, and its live sports coverage has been hit-and-miss (though the 2022 Winter Olympics was a solid hit for Peacock, pointing to improved sports streaming ahead).
We’ve come up with over 150 Peacock streaming recommendations here, but with a caveat: you’ll want one of the Premium tiers (ad-supported or ad-free) to take advantage of the full catalog. The free Peacock tier gives you access to only half of its 15,000 TV shows and movies.
