Here are the big takeaways from this change:
- Days of our Lives is not being canceled
- Days of our Lives is already currently streaming the next day on Peacock and will be exclusively on Peacock (this began on Monday, Sept. 12). Days will be available at 6 a.m. EDT every weekday
- Peacock will be the one place where Days fans can access new episodes, past episodes and Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem
- Peacock is available to view on any internet-enabled device including tablets, laptops, desktop computers and Smart TVs that are OTT compatible
- Days will never be preempted on Peacock or interrupted by breaking news
- Days of our Lives fans will need to pay money for the premium Peacock service to access episodes. However, Peacock will have a special offer through the month of September. New Peacock Premium customers will be able to sign up for just $1.99 per month or $19.99 for one year. That’s compared with the regular Peacock Premium pricing of $4.99/month (with ads) or $9.99/month (no ads). Also, qualified Spectrum TV customers can get it free for a year and qualified internet customers can get it free for 90 days
NBC said this move to streaming was "more reflective of how most people currently watch Days of our Lives."
Replacing Days of our Lives' timeslot on-air will be NBC News Daily.
NBC News Daily will be a first-of-its-kind, midday news program reporting on live breaking news and up-to-the-minute national, local and international news. NBC News Daily will have a signature, world-class reporting with award-winning journalists including, Kate Snow, Morgan Radford, Vicky Nguyen and Aaron Gilcrest.
