New Details of NBC Streaming Service Announced

Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

More details of NBC’s new streaming service have been announced, not least its name – Peacock, after the channel’s logo.

NBC Entertainment Co-Chair Paul Telegdy has also joined the ranks of media execs inspired by the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, raising the possibility of a shared continuity connecting the channel’s comedy shows, with attendant crossovers. This would hardly be a first for the network, of course, as witness the nineties Friends/Mad About You crossover deriving from Lisa Kudrow having parts in both shows.

Additionally, Bill McGoldrick, president of scripted at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and president of unscripted at NBCU channels USA Network and Syfy, has had his role expanded to include oversight of scripted for Peacock, which is planned to debut next year.

What the industry says about US

WWE, International

We truly appreciate the relationship we have with Global Listings. The teams have been outstanding in the delivery of accurate EPGs and their flexibility with everyday requirements; we are very grateful.

Tristar Products, UK

As a company, we monitor our sales on daily basis and as such we potentially have to change schedules at a moment’s notice. When working with Global listings this is made easy. Their can-do attitude means we are not hindered by bureaucracy or rigid SLAs – we make the change and they do all the hard work... great service!
