    Did I read right that Days is moving to Peacock exclusively in September?? How the heck do I record it then?

    With the show & Carlivati knowing what happened to All My Children, One Life to Live & Passions when they moved to other networks & with knowing how Prospect Park went bankrupt, how AMC, OLTL & Passions came to an end on other networks, can you really see the move happening, especially, with the writing the way it is now, meaning, where the ratings are now & because of the writing, you tell me as to Peacock would allow Days to move there, what happens when Peacock knowing about the ratings on NBC & because of the writing & that Beyond Salem Season 1 failed to win an Emmy, is it a wise move to move to the Peacock Network. What happens when The Peacock Network goes bankrupt. I have brought up that there 5 reasons as to why cable television is dying. So what does that say for the Peacock Network?

    Yes, you read correctly. Days will be streamed on Peacock, which means, after the regular air time every week day, the show will be there (on Peacock) waiting for you whenever you want to watch it. No need for you to record it since Peacock will technically be recording it. You can download the app on your phone or go to Peacock on your computer. Peacock is available on some TVs, provided they are new enough, but unfortunately, I can’t get it on my tv. I’m really bummed about this. I have a free year’s subscription for Peacock through Spectrum, but after that, I’ll have to pay the monthly fee ($5.99 I think). Can’t believe Days will be gone from NBC and replaced by yet another dumb news show. Like we need another one of those! I know it is all about money, though. Hopefully Days will continue to stream for a long time. I don’t like the way Days announced it either: “Oh, by the way, your beloved Days is leaving NBC and being replaced by this marvelous new news show.” Give me a break!

    You have brought up Peacock available on some TVs, but what about the ones that don’t, what then. Then you tell me as to how people would watch Days? I can’t see how anyone would want to watch Days on the internet or much less by way of phones & what about it being too expensive for people to subscribe to the Peacock network by watching on Peacock by way of the internet, much less by phone with how they have scrapped The High School reunion app & how they have scrapped Abby & Chad in Paris app? Then this: Passions ceased & desist once they had moved to another network. You tell me why Peacock would risk having Days cease & desist once they allow the move?

    I watch Days on Peacock now if I miss it on broadcast tv. I stream it on my tablet, phone, or tv. It’s FREE to watch on Peacock. However, will they start charging for it once it is exclusively on Peacock ? If so, the stories need to be top notch if I have to pay for them. Also, the other content on Peacock needs to be worth paying for, in my opinion.

    With how they had scrapped HSR app & Chad & Abby in Paris as well, do you really think that people would pay to watch it on phones or tablet or phone, if there’s a chance that the Peacock network would scrap Days altogether, given how Passions failed after they jumped networks?

    You can’t record it. You have to subscribe and sit through commercials at $4.99/month or commercial free for $9.99/month. Or if you have Comcast/XFinity you get the Peacock app for free, but with commercials.

    I now understand why so many actors jumped ship and refused to sign long term contracts. Days is doomed to be permanently gone for good with this move.

    The question that I have is this with how shows on NBC are streamed the next day on Peacock, can I still record Days on NBC, & when that day’s episode is streamed the way that CBS has Ghosts has the first season streamed, can I watch Days that way?

    I think Peacock should continue offering it for free after DOOL leaves NBC at least for some period of time – 6 months to a year. This gives viewers a chance to make the leap from tv to streaming. After that start charging, if numbers go down that’s the end of Days.

    The question is this: I have read somewhere if there’s chance of it being more adult, racier & sexier, the response was this: If it will depend on when they know it would be moving there, then why think that it would be?

    The question that I have is that with how CBS has the first season of Ghosts streamed, would I be able to watch Days after the episode is streamed they that NBC programming has those episodes streamed the next day?

    Zodiacpisces, you will not be able to record it. Think Netflix. They have original shows and you can only watch them on Netflix. You can’t record them, you just have to watch off of the streaming channel. You won’t need to record off of Peacock because Days won’t air at a set time. You can watch whenever you want.

    I know that CBS & NBC are different networks. What I’m getting at is this. On CBS, in primetime, there’s a show named Ghosts, I have it set to record. Once season 1 wrapped up, I have been watching the streamed episodes of season 1.

    So what I’m getting at is that with this show failing fast & miserably, is it so wise to wise to allow it to stay that way & move it to a network that no one can watch at all, because their tvs may not have The Peacock Network & yet may not be that tech savvy to watch it?

    So with primetime shows on one network & that it’s streamed the next day. The primetime programs stay on that network, you don’t see them failing & keeping it that way once it moves to another network, now do you?

    I personally believe they want to cancel Days. They want it to fail. Moving it to Peacock won’t get new viewers, but it will certainly lose long time faithful viewers. There is always the possibility that they won’t have new shows 5 days a week all year long. They could have done it like the show you are speaking of, but since they’ve already decided to go to streaming, there doesn’t seem to be another way to view the show. My only other suggestion would be to see if someone posts it on YouTube. However, now that the show will be for pay, that may no longer be an option either.

    The question that I have is this: When ABC ended All My Children & as well as One Life to Live, the viewers watched the finales on ABC before they moved it to Hulu. Why not allow the viewers to watch the ending of Days on NBC instead of moving it?

    I understand that the network doesn’t want it anymore. I get that, but why allow it to tank, move it & have it tank there?

    Why not get rid of who’s tanking it, bringing on a new writing team & show what they want to do with it that has the Network to have pride in it again & prevent the move?

    NBC owns Peacock. It’s just another place for NBC to show their content. When Days transitions from NBC to Peacock on Sept 12, it’s not ending the show, only moving it to another place to access it. I read that NBC says alot of people already watch it on Peacock. But we’ll see how this turns out. They may loose alot of long time viewers who aren’t comfortable with streaming it. I think this is a bad move and DOOL will end in the not too distant future.

    On another subject, ABC is moving Dancing With the Stars exclusively to their streaming platform. We’ll see how that turns out.
