CBS has CBS All Access and now, NBC has its own streaming service with familiar and unique programming. The NBC streaming service, known as the Peacock, will launch nationally on Wednesday, July 15 and it looks like Days of Our Lives will be a part of it.

Viewers can experience the Peacock in a variety of ways in terms of cost. There’s a free streaming service, as well as paid tiers that cost $4.99 or $10 a month.
The Peacock’s site explains the service in simple terms: “The wildly entertaining new streaming service from NBCUniversal that you Can’t Not Love. The best of streaming meets the best of TV…all together in one app.”
Recently, NBC chief Paul Telegdy, assured soap fans that while an official deal hadn’t been signed as of yet, the network was confident that the show will continue on. The Peacock Twitter account noted that “13,753 episodes, and there’s still more drama to come for the residents of Salem. See what unbelievable things happen next on #PeacockTV”
There’s been no official announcement yet that the Peacock will provide current (or past?) episodes of DAYS, but it certainly looks like it might. DAYS premiered on November 8, 1965, on NBC. DAYS was expanded from 30 minutes to 60 minutes on April 21, 1975.
Traditionally, NBC hosts a free DAYS fan event in November at Universal CityWalk located next to Universal Studios in Universal City, CA during which attendees can meet the cast of DAYS.
Soap Hub will keep viewers updated on announcements related to where and how viewers can find DAYS. It is one of only four remaining soap operas currently on the air.
The other three daytime dramas include General Hospital (GH), The Young and the Restless(YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). DAYS is executive produced by Ken Corday. Ron Carlivati serves as head writer. Greg Meng and Albert Alarr are co-executive producers. DAYS airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for air times.
