Peacock is raising prices ahead of the Paris Olympics on July 26 — and there’s still time to lock in the current rate even after National Streaming Day.

Starting July 18, the streaming service’s monthly rate will increase by $2 to $7.99 to $13.99 monthly or $79.99 to $139.99 annually for new subscribers; existing customers will see the new rate beginning Aug. 17. The NBCUniversal streamer is currently $5.99 per month (or $59.99 per year) for the ad-supported Peacock Premium and $11.99 monthly (or $119.99 annually) for the ad-free Premium Plus plan. The best way to get grandfathered into the existing lower rate is by signing up for an annual plan.

Want to get Peacock for free? If you’re looking to cut the cord and expand your binge-watching library while saving time on grocery shopping, Instacart is offering one of the best deals on Peacock — and it’s even better than the streamer’s Black Friday sale.

The on-demand food and grocery delivery service is offering Peacock Premium for free with Instacart+ memberships, which includes unlimited free delivery on orders over $35, lower service fees, 5 percent credit back on eligible pickup orders and other perks for $9.99 per month or $99 per year with annual billing. Instacart says the service pays for itself if you order twice per month.

Instacart+ users will get free access to Peacock’s ad-supported Premium plan for as long as their membership is in effect and the offer is available. The deal doesn’t apply to existing Peacock accounts, and you cannot use the offer to upgrade to Peacock’s Premium Plus which has fewer ads.

Peacock no longer offers a free streaming option, and the only way to watch NBC and Bravo series and select NFL games live is with the Premium or Premium Plus plans.

Both packages include access to over 80,000 hours of movies and TV show episodes, including Five Nights at Freddy’s, Teenage Kraken, The Exorcist: Believer, Strays and other films straight from theaters; next-day access to NBC and Bravo series such as Love Island, Vanderpump Rules and the entire Real Housewives franchise; original series including Rainn Wilson and the Geography of Bliss, Bupkis, Mrs. Davis, Bel-Air, Poker Face, Meet Cute, A Friend of the Family and more; past seasons of Yellowstone and That ’70s Show; and much more.

Peacock Premium also has over 50 channels and live sports, including MLB Sunday Leadoff, Premier League, Sunday Night Football and WWE. It’s also the streaming home of the Women’s World Cup and the U.S. Gymnastics Championship.

Peacock’s Premium Plus tier includes all of the above, plus your local NBC channel live, no ads (except on select live TV shows) and the ability to download select titles to watch offline later.
