Streaming Comeback Of Modern Family
The deal of several years indicates the very first time that the whole library of the 22 times Emmy winning ABC comedy Modern Family is now available through both subscription, as well as advertiser, supported service.
Peacock will be alternating 12 episodes through their free service starting with the pilot episode while the remaining episodes will be available to the subscribers. The multi-year deal between NBC Universal and Disney, which owns Modern Family, enables Peacock to upstart bolstering the comedy library. The show will be joining a roster along with ‘Saturday Night Live’, ‘Parks & Recreation’, ’30 Rock’, and ‘The Office’.
This shared deal indicates that Peacock has landed one of the last hit shows of the broadcast that has an extensive library at a minimal cost. This deal is also greatly profitable for Hulu as it gains additional exposure to Modern Family on a platform along with The Office. As a result of it has now become the hub of the best American comedies.
Disney and NBC Universal have a previously made deal that led to the syndication of USA Network for Modern Family to be their part with $1.5 million for each episode. As a result, this deal is hugely beneficial to all.
