While NBC’s streaming service Peacock has a lot to offer for paying subscribers, those who don’t need the latest movies and shows can still stream limited content with a free account. The freebies are gone, though, and now all new Peacock accounts will cost at least $5 per month.

Until now, users could sign up for a “free tier” with the Peacock app and get access to a limited number of episodes of hit shows like The office either yellow stoneand, eventually, you’ll have to pay to keep watching. The free accounts weren’t the best, but they offered enough content for those trying to save money and ditch cable.

Peacock’s free tier has been an option since the service first arrived in 2020, but that’s a thing of the past. According to The Streamableand after checking the official Peacock site, free accounts are no longer an option.

Now the only option is to pay $4.99 per month for Peacock Premium, which gives you all your content, live sports and more, but with ads. Or, pay $9.99 a month for Premium Plus to enjoy local NBC channels live, ad-free and offline playback.

If you want to check out some Peacock, it will cost at least $4.99 per month for new users. Fortunately, according to the report, those with an existing free account will still have access to the Peacock app and nothing will change. That being said, there is no longer a free option for new accounts.

Also, it doesn’t appear that existing Premium/Plus members can upgrade to the free tier, which was an option in the past. While this isn’t a huge deal, it’s a less completely free option for those who’ve cut the cord. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if Peacock eventually removed the free accounts entirely, but for now, they’re still up and running.
