Comcast’s streaming service Peacock on Tuesday added NBC’s streaming digital network LX, a lifestyle channel featuring long-form content aimed at a younger news audience.

The launch on Peacock comes less than two years after the network debuted on YouTube and on some over-the-air NBC- and Telemundo-owned broadcast stations across the country. NBC LX was added to the pay TV streaming services Fubo TV and YouTube TV earlier this year.

NBC LX appears under a section of Peacock dedicated to streaming news and entertainment channels, including NBC News Now, Sky News and others. That section of Peacock is free to access, whether users pay for Peacock or not.

“We are thrilled to partner with Peacock and bring the NBC LX brand of storytelling and innovation to the millions of viewers on the platform,” Matthew Goldberg, an executive in charge of content streaming at the newtork, said in a statement on Tuesday.

The channel carries a variety of news and lifestyle programming, including its flagship news program “LX News,” global travel program “1st Look” and content produced by other NBC partners.

In addition to Peacock, the network is available on over-the-air broadcast stations owned by NBC and its sister network Telemundo, on some Comcast XFinity, Cox Cable, Spectrum and Verizon pay TV systems and on streaming apps for Roku and Apple TV.

Peacock is available to stream on Apple TV, Android TV and Roku devices as well as on Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. The service is also accessible on Comcast’s X1 and Flex-powered set-top boxes. The services offers a limited amount of on-demand TV shows and movies for free.
