NBCUniversal-backed streaming service Peacock, is set to become home to several Dick Wolf series, including the One Chicago franchise trio of Chicago Fire, Chicago Med and Chicago PD.
One Chicago and Law & Order fans have something new to celebrate, as the NBCUniversal-backed new streaming service, Peacock, has struck a deal with Dick Wolf to have all of his series stream for free.
The deal includes One Chicago’s Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, as well as Law & Order, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and of course, Law & Order: SVU. Through the deal, Peacock has acquired the rights to stream all episodes from the various series, which will give fans the chance to stream complete seasons of the One Chicago franchises.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, One Chicago fans can look forward to 170 episodes of Chicago Fire, 130+ episodes of Chicago PD, and 90 episodes of Chicago Med. Meanwhile, Law & Order fans can get excited for all 456 episodes of the flagship series, 195 episodes of Criminal Intent, and 460+ episodes and counting of SVU.
The difference between Peacock, and say other streaming sites like Hulu (which still retain rights to SVU and the One Chicago series), is that the former will include the full catalog of episodes, whereas the latter only has a few episodes of current seasons.
THR reported that Wolf is “extremely pleased, gratified and excited” that NBC has decided to place his shows on their new platform, and he hopes that it will be a “one stop shop” for fans to get their crime drama fix.
As previously reported, Peacock is set to become available to Comcast’s Xfinity X1 cable customers and Flex streaming customers on April 15, before a wide release on July 15.
In the meantime, you can still enjoy reruns on TV, and tune in to all-new episodes of NBC’s Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and SVU when they air Wednesday and Thursday nights, respectively.
