Get ready to hand over more of your dollars—NBCUniversal has announced their own streaming platform! Named Peacock after their iconic logo, the service will feature new original dramas including a Battlestar Galactica reboot from Sam Esmail, and a Brave New World adaptation featuring Demi Moore. There’s even a Saved By the Bell reboot in the works! And, of course, you’ll be able to stream all your old faves like 30 Rock, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Parks and Rec. Yup, settle in because over 15,000 more hours of programming is about to hit your screen.

With yet another streaming service joining the competition that includes Apple TV+, Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, it’s going to be hard to decide which ones to choose (or else…what is your bank account going to do?).
