Peacock, NBCUniversal’s upcoming new streaming service which launches this April, has announced a licensing deal with A+E Networks for a library of A+E and History product available to stream after the service launches later this year. Programming will include “First 48,” “Storage Wars” and “Cold Case Files” from A+E; and “Pawn Stars,” “American Pickers,” “Ancient Aliens,” “Curse of Oak Island” and “Project Blue Book” from History.
“We are excited to make some of A+E Networks’ most popular shows available on Peacock later this year,” said Frances Manfredi, President, Content Acquisition and Strategy, Peacock and NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises. “In addition to the strong portfolio of NBCUniversal programming available on Peacock, we continue to aggregate content from other networks and studios, like A&E and History, that maximizes the breadth and depth of choice for our customers.”
“We are excited to partner with Peacock,” added Steve MacDonald, President, Global Content Licensing and International, A+E Networks. “We of course strongly believe in the power of the A+E Networks’ library of content, and that it will prove to strengthen Peacock’s offerings.”
