NBCUniversal has finally settled on a name for its upcoming streaming service—and there’s not a “plus” or a “max” to be found in the title.

The new OTT offering, called Peacock, will including a mix of library titles like The Office and Parks and Recreation, along with several new shows, including reboots of Saved By the Bell, Punky Brewster and Battlestar Galactica.

When the service, which will be both ad- and subscription-supported, debuts in April, it will feature more than 15,000 hours of content.

NBCUniversal said the name Peacock is a nod to NBC’s iconic logo, which features the bird.
