Basically, this means a bunch of amazing new TV series will premiere exclusively on Stan, while a treasure trove of old favourites will be added to the streaming service for your bingeing pleasure.
And this month, we'll be seeing some very exciting titles, thanks to this news.
As part of the deal, Brave New World will be the first major Peacock Original Series to premiere exclusively on Stan.
Watch the trailer for Brave New World below. Post continues after video.
Based on Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel and featuring Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Brave New World explores a utopian society that has achieved peace through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.
It follows Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne, New Londoners who have only ever known rigid social order.
Curious to explore life beyond, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they get stuck in a violent rebellion, and are rescued by John the Savage.
But John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions.
The Good Lord Bird
The Good Lord Bird is a brand new, seven-part Stan series, told from the point of view of Onion, a young slave who becomes a member of a family of abolitionist soldiers during Bleeding Kansas – a time when the state was a battleground between pro- and anti-slavery forces.
