We use comcast to provide Internet access ONLY.
They recently sent a piece of H/W they call FLEX which includes Peacock "premium".
I use the parens because Peacock "premium" includes commercials. This has been double-checked and verified.
I was dead-set against it but they successfully convinced us that this box & service is completely free of charge.
I'm very skeptical about this.
Does anyone know anything about this?

The truth isn't altered by your version of it.
If it shows ads, it is not free. You pay with your time.
Peacock was pre-installed on my X1 cable box. I also installed the Peacock app on my Chromecast with Google TV and I had to sign in with my Xfinity username and password to have access to some content. Yes, Peacock is free on both platforms although there are commercials. However, all the other free streaming services I use are also advertising-supported.

I can tell you my story and base you can get a choice. I had a subscription to Netflix, I bought it for Arcane and JoJo Stone Ocean. They came out, I watched them, and then the question came up, what next? I wasn't interested in other projects on that service, but I wanted to watch Mandalorian. The only problem here is that it was coming out on Disney +, why pay for two subscriptions at once? I didn't want to watch it through sites with ads that keep popping up while watching it, as they spoil the narrative and immersion, so I decided to try downloading it through The Pirate Bay mirror. I've never used torrents, as I didn't trust them, but I decided to give it a try nonetheless. No viruses were downloaded, and I also watched this show when I was flying to Miami, so it was also practical. I suggest you take your chances, as it might be even more useful than you think.
