    • Peacock has reportedly stopped offering the free tier to new subscribers.
    • The free tier is still available to existing subscribers, though.

    Peacock is one of a few big-name video streaming services with a free tier, offering ads and a smaller library of content. Unfortunately, it sounds like the company could be winding down this option.

    The Streamable reports that Peacock is no longer offering the free tier to new users. Instead, new users can only sign up for Premium and Premium Plus options.

    The ad-supported Premium plan costs $4.99 a month and includes a host of content (including live sports and 50 always-on channels). Meanwhile, the ad-free Premium Plus option costs $9.99 a month, offering the same perks as the Premium tier as well as the ability to download content for offline viewing. This tier also offers access to your local NBC news channel.

    Fortunately, the free tier is still available to existing subscribers for now. The outlet also reports that Cox Internet users, who recently lost complimentary access to the Premium tier, can choose to stick with the free tier. In saying so, this reduced emphasis on the free tier suggests that it might disappear altogether at some point.

    Either way, Peacock is currently running a promotion where you can get a 12-month Premium subscription for $29.99 instead of $49.99. So new users thinking about joining the service might want to keep this deal in mind.
