Peacock, the new streaming service from NBCUniversal, is continuing to expand its sports offerings – now with established talk shows rather than originals and live competitions. 

Over the past week, the service announced it will become the exclusive home to “The Rich Eisen Show,” “PFT Live with Mike Florio,” and “The Dan Patrick Show.” 

After a month-long hiatus, Eisen’s show will continue to air on NBC Sports Network starting Aug. 17 and shift to exclusively airing live on Peacock starting Oct. 5. It will air from 12-3 p.m. ET, and be simulcast on SiriusXM and PodCast One, Monday through Friday.

“My entire career I have taken pride in being at the forefront of new ventures, from the NFL Network to my own show,” Eisen said in an announcement. “Now streaming on Peacock, I am proud to be hosting and producing the next chapter of sports talk.”

On Monday, Peacock announced an exclusive deal with Patrick’s show, bringing it back into the NBC sphere after a stint on YouTube. The show will stream on Peacock’s free tier. 

All content from “The Dan Patrick Show” will be available on demand in addition to streaming live. Top moments from the show will also be featured in the service’s “Trending” section, a hub for short-form content updated on a daily basis, including sports highlights, pop culture updates, and shorter interview and news segments. Patrick’s show will also be simulcast on SiriusXM and radio channels across the U.S. 

Tuesday, Peacock announced that Florio’s show will also be moving to its platform exclusively starting Aug. 24. The show will air live from 7-9 a.m. ET on Peacock, also simulcast on SiriusXM, then re-air from 9-11 a.m. ET on NBCSN. 

As with Patrick’s show, Florio’s will be available on demand with highlights featured in the Trending section. Viewers based in the UK and Ireland will continue to access the show on Sky Sports. 

Peacock’s free tier sports portfolio will also include coverage of the Men’s and Women’s U.S. Open golf tournament this fall, an NFL Wild Card Game, and select events from the postponed Tokyo Summer Games and Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022. It also has sports documentaries ranging from “Tiger Woods Chasing History” and “I Am Ali” to Peacock Originals “Lost Speedways” featuring Dale Earnhardt Jr. and “In Deep with Ryan Lochte.” 

Additionally, all content currently presented on NBC Sports Gold’s Premier League Pass will also shift to Peacock Premium at the start of the 2020-21 Premier League campaign.

As of June 30, Peacock said it had garnered 10 million “signups’ but declined to say how that number converts to monthly active users.
