Peacock seems to have struck quite a sweet deal with Universal Pictures here. Movies-wise, that is.
The Hollywood Reporter just reported on July 6, 2021 that Universal Pictures has just struck a good deal with its sister streaming service Peacock. Apparently, starting in 2022, All Universal films will head on over to the streaming service no later than 4 months after their theatrical debut. The wording, however, suggests that they could be streaming even sooner than that. Clearly, Universal wants to drum up hype for what’s basically their streaming platform.
This will be great news for all of you using Peacock, but there’s even more. Apparently, Universal will also develop and produce a selection of original films exclusively for the streaming platform. These original films will debut sometime in 2022, with no exact release dates given. Unfortunately, there is also no hint of any specific titles we can expect. We will just have to wait for more news from Universal and/or Peacock on that matter at a later date.
