Peacock also recently unveiled three new features coming to the platform – Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock, Peacock Discovery Multiview and Peacock Live Actions – that will help fans discover and engage with the Olympics and other live programming in new, innovative ways.

Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock

Peacock is harnessing A.I. technology to present “Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock,” a first-of-its-kind, personalized experience complementing NBCUniversal’s comprehensive coverage of the Olympic Games Paris 2024. In collaboration with Emmy Award-winning, Hall of Fame announcer Al Michaels and powered by generative A.I. and A.I. voice synthesis technology, “Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock” will provide fans with their own customized playlist featuring highlights of the events most relevant to them from the previous day. Each compilation will feature clips from NBCU’s Olympics coverage and be narrated by a high-quality A.I. re-creation of Michaels’ voice.

“Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock” is tailored to the Olympics fan on-the-go and will be available to Peacock subscribers starting July 27 at www.peacocktv.com/olympics on all supported web browsers as well as on the Peacock app on select mobile and tablet devices.

To receive “Your Daily Olympic Recap on Peacock,” fans can visit the Olympic hub and Home page of Peacock (www.peacocktv.com/olympics) starting July 27 and opt into the types of highlights they would like to see, including their three favorite sports and preferred topics, such as behind-the-scenes and backstories, top competition, viral and trending moments, and a spotlight on international teams. The first edition on July 27 will be highlights from the Opening Ceremony and starting July 28, after the first full day of events, personalized versions for each individual will be available.

Peacock Discovery Multiview 

With up to 40 live events happening simultaneously, Peacock Discovery Multiview will offer an industry-first, enhanced four-view experience that helps users navigate to the most important events, with real-time on-screen descriptions from NBCU’s Olympic experts informing viewers about what is at stake, such as a medal event, an elimination risk or a first-time Olympian. In addition, a traditional Multiview experience featuring up to four matches on one screen will be available for sports such as soccer, track & field, and wrestling.

Both Multiview options will allow users to move around the screens, switch the audio and click through to watch full screen and dive deeper into the action. Peacock will offer up to four Multiview options concurrently, giving fans the opportunity to choose what they are most excited to watch. Peacock will be the first standalone streaming app to offer a Multiview experience across smart TVs, streaming devices, web browsers and tablets. 

Peacock Live Actions

Peacock Live Actions is a new interactive tool that lets fans choose their own viewing journey during live and primetime coverage, and follow the events they are most interested in watching.

Peacock Live Actions will come to life in programming like Gold Zone, Peacock’s live whip-around show, guiding viewers to the best and most exciting moments happening during the Paris Olympic Games. Through Peacock Live Actions on-screen prompts, fans watching Gold Zone will now be able to choose to continue watching the live feed of a specific event instead of staying with the Gold Zone coverage. Peacock Live Actions will also allow viewers watching the NBC Primetime simulcast to add upcoming events to their “My Stuff” list to watch later.

As in previous Olympics, fans can also search by sport, event, and team —including country names and three-letter country codes.
  • An enhanced Interactive Schedule, so fans can plan their Olympics viewing day-by-day, join events live, watch replays or add events to their “My Stuff” to watch later.
  • Up-to-date Medal Standings sponsored by Delta for fans to keep track of every country competing in Paris.
  • Peacock’s award-winning “Catch Up with Key Plays,” which allows fans to easily access key moments when joining an in-progress game or revisiting their favorite plays, will now be available for basketball and golf, in addition to soccer.
  • For fans of a traditional lean-back watching experience, Peacock will offer three unique content offerings within the Channels feature, including:
    • Paris Extra 1: A team sports-focused channel featuring events such as basketball, handball, water polo, field hockey and more.
    • Paris Extra 2: A combat and racket sport-focused channel featuring events such as judo, taekwondo, badminton, table tennis and more.
