Our lineup delivers news, weather, sports, investigative reporting, lifestyle content and our local storytelling, wherever you want to watch on your Peacock app. 

“Local news keeps our audiences connected and informed and with NBC Boston News now available on Peacock, audiences everywhere can tune in to get the news, weather, investigations and local events that only NBC10 Boston and NECN can uniquely provide,” said Chris Wayland, president and general manager of NBC10 Boston, Telemundo Boston, NECN and NBC Sports Boston.
