NBC Peacock, the 370th streaming service to debut in the past 12 months, will publicly launch on July 15 after an Xfinity-exclusive soft launch earlier this year. That means it’s time to review the service’s exclusive series—though in the case of The Capture, one of Peacock’s most captivating launch options, that “exclusivity” is regional.
Unlike Peacock offerings like Brave New World and Intelligence, The Capture is an import for American viewers, having already aired on the online-only BBC Three in autumn 2019. But it’s still decidedly current: a mystery thriller that revolves around deep-fake technology and government distrust.
Whether a single series as good as The Capture makes Peacock worth subscribing to is another question. And to that point, lovers of British TV must contend with yet another streamer to add to the ever-growing list. (Peacock also will have all the seasons of Downton Abbey seasons as well as its 2019 film when it launches on July 15.)
