NBC Universal will be joining the streaming fray early next year with the launch of its own direct-to-consumer service. However, unlike some of its competitors OTT offerings, NBCU's will be free for existing pay-TV subscribers.
Many of the details for the service have yet to be announced, but one key aspect of the service will differentiate it from rival services such as ESPN+, Disney+, and CBS Full Access; the service will be supported by ad revenue and will be free if you already subscribe to pay TV service. The platform will also be available to non-cable/satellite customers for a monthly fee, thought to be around $12 per month.
