NBCUniversal today announced that Peacock — its new streaming service that launches nationwide on July 15 — be available natively on Vizio and LG televisions.

Vizio has numerous apps available on its SmartCast operating system. Same goes for LG and its webOS-based system.

Peacock is at its core a free (and ad-supported) streaming service. But for $4.99 a month you'll be able to watch even more twice as much NBCUniversal content, including a bunch of new originals. And for another $5 a month you can get most of it without advertising.

"We want to provide fans of Peacock's vast programming a choice of how and where they consume our content when we launch nationally next month, Matt Bond, Chairman, Content Distribution, NBCUniversal, said in a news release. "VIZIO and LG are great partners that will help provide these fans the viewing experience they've come to expect from us at NBCUniversal."
