The two internet sites will split rights to “My Son” throughout the year as part of the contract, which was arranged by David Spiegelman for STX. The film will debut on Peacock’s free tier on September 15th. It will depart NBCUniversal’s subscription-based service months later and begin streaming for free on The Roku Channel in the United States on December 15. The film’s release differs from standard streaming windows, in which a new title is only available for a limited time on a single digital platform. “My Son” was originally scheduled to premiere exclusively on Peacock, but STX, the film’s financier, later struck a deal with Roku to maximize earnings.
“We’re ecstatic to have collaborated with Peacock and Roku on this custom contract that meets everyone’s demands and maximizes value for all three companies and our talent partners,” said Adam Fogelson, head of STXfilms’ motion picture group. “The true winners are Peacock and Roku viewers, who will be able to watch a daringly innovative, star-driven film on their preferred platform.” IMDB
