Peacock will stream Lionsgate movies like John Wick 4 in 2024
(Pocket Ribbon) – Lionsgate was recently announced to be developing a Hunger Games prequel, but at the time it was unclear where the film would be available to stream once it came out. Now Peacock announced it signed a multi-year deal to stream Lionsgate movies from 2024.
The deal begins with the studio’s 2022 films. The first movie coming to Peacock will be The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, starring Nicolas Cage. Eventually, Lionsgate will introduce other movies on Peacock for an exclusive streaming period, including John Wick: Chapter 4, Borderlands, and, yes, the Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.
Other movies include Expendables 4, Are You There God? It’s me, Margaret and White Bird: A Wonder Story.
However, Peacock does not have exclusive streaming rights to all of these films right after their theatrical performance. Some will be coming to Starz and The Roku Channel.
Peacock was first launched in 2020. It is a video streaming service in the US based on NBCUniversal’s wide range of properties. It is available in three tiers: Peacock Free, Peacock Premium with Ads (an ad-supported version that costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year), and Peacock Premium (a $9.99 per month subscription option or $99.99 per year with fewer ads).
