Days of Our Lives News: Peacock Is Offering A Fall Deal For New Subscribers

According to new reports, Peacock will lower the price of its Premium tier for new customers, from $4.99 to $1.99 per month, or for a year for $19.99.  That’s such great news! Days of Our Lives is expected to make its debut on Peacock on September 12.

Because Days of Our Lives is moving to Peacock, this means that fans of the show will have to pay a monthly subscription in order to continue watching all of the drama. “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement with viewers,” said Mark Lazarus, chairman, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, in a statement. “With a large percentage of the ‘Days of Our Lives’ audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

As many fans probably already know, Days of Our Lives is the longest-running entertainment series that the broadcast has ever aired. While DOOL is the least watched out of the four main soaps that are still on the air, it pulls in an estimated 1.7 million viewers per day. In comparison, The Young and the Restless over at CBS sees about 3.47 million viewers on any given day.

That said, there’s no doubt that there are going to be a lot of fans who are still upset about this move. After all, the NBC network was Days of Our Lives’ home for the last 50 years. Now that fans have to actually pay to watch the show, it might not be the same. In the meantime, let us know what you think by leaving us a line with your thoughts in our comments section below.
