NBCUniversal is apparently considering saving the entirety of its future releases exclusively for Peacock. The Comcast-owned division is thinking about pulling all Universal Pictures from different streamers like Netflix and HBO Max for supporting NBC’s own streaming service.
At the present time, HBO Max has a deal with NBCUniversal to stream new releases for some time shortly after they hit theaters. Netflix has a deal with Despicable Me studio Illumination Entertainment for its animated films. The two deals are set to expire at the end of 2021, and Comcast may decide not to renew.
There are hundreds of millions of reasons NBCUniversal would want to continue to permit out rights to its content, every one of them being dollars. The Cons incorporate giving contending platforms some of the organization’s most famous titles which could be saved only for its flagship streamer, Peacock.
NBCUniversal hasn’t settled on a final decision regarding what to do yet. The previous summer, the organization was inclining toward licensing out its films as per Bloomberg, yet that has been deferred because of complications with Covid-19.
There’s likewise been discussion about a hybrid deal where Peacock could share some of its TV shows rights with different platforms so it can in any case capitalize on licensing cash, while holding movies to support Peacock’s library, getting the best of both worlds.
