NBCUniversal Starts OTT Streaming Service (Peacock), slated for 2020

Another show idea I had was a sequel series to the Back to the Future films, only this time, it's live-action.

Of course it's likely MJF won't reprise his role of Marty McFly due to having Parkinson's and thus the only way the character could appear in such a series is if he is played by another actor. Christopher Lloyd should be fine to play Doc again though.
Uhh, how about no?

What the media conglomerate-backed streamers need to do is put more obscure films and television series in their catalog on their services.

NBCUniversal has quite a lot of stuff they own that qualifies as obscure. The miniseries Invasion America (which I think needs a sequel to properly wrap up the storyline) is one.

Yes, and shows that compliment the shows in the library.

I don't know if it's possible for NBCU to acquire the rights to the original Bonanza series since they own the trademark and copyright. If so, they should since they have Wagon Train.

Homicide: Life on the Street should be another great series to add to the roster of cop shows. Ran for 6 years along with a movie and it's an ancestor to Law and Order: SVU, The Wire, The Shield, and most modern cop shows to this day.

There needs to also be a section to classic Walter Lantz/Harveytoons cartoons. Disney+ has classic Mickey Mouse and friends, HBOMax has classic Looney Tunes, why not add the classics? Also, the new Woody Woodpecker shorts aren't on there as well.

Though NBC may own the copyright to Bonanza, they sold all other rights to National Telefilm Associates in 1973, these rights are now held by CBS. Thus if anything it would go on All Access.

Yes I know it's weird for a show to have its copyright owned by one company but all other rights owned by another.

So, looking through the site there are a lot of notable omissions in the classic tv section, no Night Court, No Knight Rider, No A-Team, not even Community.

Night Court is WB and thus would likely go on HBOmax

Community is owned by Sony


Community is on Hulu NBC has both Knight Rider series on NBC.com so is the A-Team. Uhh Night Court so far not streaming.

The streaming revolution is like how cable has been for years.... Roku and NBC U got into an impasse over Peacock , now the TV Everywhere apps (you know NBC, E!, USA, CNBC, Bravo, some other NBC owned networks) are going to be dropped from Roku by midnight Roku And Peacock Clash Over Carriage; NBCUniversal TV Everywhere Apps Set To Go Dark

The article's been updated since you posted it. The TV Everywhere apps won't be "going dark" after all.

Oh, and I should mention that while Night Court did air on NBC originally, the show comes from Warner Bros..

The old fashioned public negotiation spat to get things moving...

There are a few shows that originally aired on NBC that are on Peacock but their rights are owned by other companies.

Like Cheers and its spin-off Frasier.

Those were originally from Paramount, and are now owned by CBS Television Studios. Season one of Frasier (the one season available for free) retains the 1990 Paramount TV logo (white Paramount Communications byline, was last non-ET show from that era to end; similarly, Cheers was the last Blue Mountain era show to end other than ET) at the end.

Sony owns worldwide distribution of Community. I can tell because when I look at DVD listings for the series on both the American and British Amazon sites, Sony is listed as the distributor in both cases.

I know Knight Rider and a few other shows are on NBC.com. That is why some people are not getting it.

Notre Dame has aired its home football games on NBC or in a few cases, a sister network, since 1991.

Perhaps NBCUniversal should produce content about Notre Dame football, mainly scripted stuff about the history of the program and documentary stuff. If Universal can get the remake rights from Warner Bros., they could even remake Knute Rockne: All American.

I still feel like this and HBOmax are streamers that are not for the cord cutters. They are essentially pretenders, because they still have other .coms out there sitting with all of their content, so until they shut those down (which they'll never do) and really push everything to the stramers
