Streaming is the future of TV, and Peacock is the future of streaming.

The excellent NBC service (disclaimer: look around) now has 22 million subscribers, according to Variety.com. That’s a seven-million subscriber increase over last month.

And, yes, I mention that for multiple reasons. First, look around. Second, PFT has a twice-daily presence on Peacock, with PFT Live airing every weekday morning at 7:00 a.m. ET and PFT PM every weekday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. ET.

It’s now a 12-hour daily lineup, with PFT Live followed by The Dan Patrick Show then The Rich Eisen Show then Brother from Another and then PFT PM. On Mondays, the day ends with Rodney Harrison and Jac Collinsworth on Safety Blitz. Tuesdays through Fridays, it’s Chris Simms Unbuttoned.

If you’re not currently one of the 22 million, you should be. It’s fast and easy and, for much of the content, free. If you have any questions about where to get Peacock and how to use it, let me know.

  1. It’s ridiculous for those still on premium cable and have to pay extra for sports. Why should I stay on cable?

  2. All the boomers HATE the new business model. They’d much prefer paying 150 bucks a month for 1000 channels they don’t even watch.

  3. Currently there are too many services to subscribe too. All of them want to nickel and dime you. I had HBO Max, canceled. It. Hulu, canceled it. CBS all access, canceled it. Cinemax, canceled that one also. About ready to cancel Disney Plus as well. None of the above services warrant the monthly cost. I stick with YouTube TV for sports and basic programming along with Netflix. That’s about it.

    Yo, millennial! I cut the cord over a decade ago on my LAN line and have been streaming and/or on HD antenna exclusively for 8+ years.

    Happy Boomer

  5. It may be mostly free now, but it won’t be long before they start charging, and then keep increasing the rates. For years, people complained about having to pay for channels they did not watch on cable, and wanted to just ‘pay for those I watch’. They did not take into account that the potential there was to end up paying as much or more for fewer channels. But, here we are.
