can draw movies from Universal Picture's huge, high-quality well. Founded in 1912, it is the oldest surviving film studio in the United States. Over the course of the past century, Universal has made many successful blockbusters and film franchises, including classic monsters like The Mummy and King Kong, Jurassic Park/World, Minions and Fast and Furious. And because of Universal's shared custody situation with Warner Bros. Discovery, Peacock sometimes has the Harry Potter movies.

The best movies aren't just filled with classics; plenty of new hits and acclaimed titles are available. Right now, you can see Jordan Peele's latest horror entry, Nope, and the Oscar-nominated drama Tár. The latter was produced by Focus Features, another studio owned by Comcast that's known for its excellent indie films.

Peacock doesn't just rely on its corporate siblings for content, either. They license movies from other sources, like Hallmark. The two brands signed a deal giving Peacock some of Hallmark's popular Christmas movies.
