Ramping up its recently introduced content library, NBCUniversal’s Peacock direct-to-consumer streaming service is to stream leading sports show PFT Live with Mike Florio exclusively from 24 August.
PFT Live is known for delivering inside information and comprehensive analysis from an independent perspective. The show covers all the latest news around the league, breaks down reports and rumours and features interviews with players, coaches and executives. Presenters Mike Florio and Chris Simms, along with regular guests Peter King and Rodney Harrison, will continue to keep fans current on the NFL each weekday from 7:00–9:00 a.m. ET.
All content from PFT Live with Mike Florio will be available on demand in addition to streaming live. Also, highlights from the show will be featured in the service’s Trending section, a hub for short-form content, on a daily basis, and will include sports highlights, pop culture updates, and shorter interview and news segments.
“The good news is PFT Live will be on Peacock. The better news is that you’ll be able to watch PFT Live for free. The best news is you’re guaranteed to get your money’s worth,” said Florio. “Mike is one of the most influential journalists covering the NFL over the last 20 years,” added Rick Cordella, EVP and chief revenue officer for Peacock. “His smart, irreverent takes on all things football have made him must read and watch for NFL insiders and NFL fans alike. We’re incredibly thrilled to have PFT Live join Peacock’s growing sports-talk programming.”
Sport is a key plank in the Peacock package. Upcoming live sports on Peacock includes coverage of the US Open Championship and Women’s Open Championship and an NFL Wild Card Playoff Game. Fans can also watch on-demand replays of events like the Triple Crown horse races, daily highlights from NBC Sports and sports series, documentaries and films, such as Tiger Woods: Chasing History; 1968; I Am Ali; Dream Team; Being Evel; Feherty; Willie; and Peacock Originals Lost Speedways and In Deep with Ryan Lochte.
Peacock will also offer English Premier League (EPL) football from the beginning of the 2020/21 season.
