NBCUniversal is quickly expanding the range of devices you can use to stream its Peacock service. Both LG Smart TVs and Vizio SmartCast sets will support Peacock when it reaches wider availability on July 15th, including the free, $5 Premium and $10 ad-free Premium tiers. The media giant didn’t name specific models, but offerings like this aren’t usually dependent on having the absolute latest set.

There’s no mention of Samsung TV support so far.

Between this expansion as well as promises of support for Apple devices, Google hardware and Xbox consoles, NBCU is following a familiar strategy. It needs Peacock to be available on as many platforms as possible if it’s going to compete with other services, particularly from studio-specific offerings like CBS All Access and HBO Max. With device support (mostly) out of the way, the question is more about whether or not you’ll like Peacock enough to pay for it.
