It's the off-season and I'm low-key bored.

I was sorry to see advertisements on Peacock during the recent US Gymnastics championships. Isn’t Peacock supposed to be ad free…or is that just for figure skating?
I think it's only ad-free if you upgrade to Peacock Premium or Plus or whatever they're calling it now.

I had (for gymnastics) what I always had before - Premium. Ads showed up for gymnastics.

You have to have Premium Plus for it to be ad free. You'll have ads if you just purchase the regular Premium plan which is $5.99 per month.

I just have the Premium plan and don't mind the ads. If you're watching a movie, for instance, they sometimes play the ads first before the movie which is good.

And I've never seen ads on live skating events from the World feed. (The replays are a different matter and it just depends there.)

I forget to cancel the auto-renew for Peacock last year and got charged around $50 for the year at renewal time. Apparently that isn't/wasn't Premium Plus rate as I got plenty of ads during gymnastics and just now watching the US swimming Olympic trials.

I've turned off the auto renewal, so I'll 🙏 for a better rate come September or October when I re-sign up.

Hopefully the Olympic coverage on Peacock will be by event and not bounce around to different events like often happens on broadcast network channels.

They show every event in its entirety. I used it for a lot of the gym events in Tokyo.

The gymnastics telecast was the same one that was on TV, hence the ads during commercial breaks. I have Premium Plus and I saw them too. There was no World Feed, hence why you saw them. There was no other alternate feed, so you weren’t getting around them.

Obviously the crazy price NBC pays for the US Olympic rights is getting passed on to us via the commercials.

I have a roku TV and the peacock app keeps crashing and routing me back to the home screen. Anyone else dealing with this?
