Took a look at it last nght on my Flex box after Comcast finally greenlit it.

tl;dr if you want to watch old NBC shows a lot, I guess its okay. The movies were mostly old crap. The UI wasn't at all intuitive. The one thing I went to watch threw commercials at me. I ended up watching a movie on Netflix. Unless I want to catch up on shows I haven't watched from 10 years ago, free is the right price. If they think people will pay $10 for the commercial free version...well...good luck with that.

Way, way too many streaming services with their own little stovepipes. I can't see them all surviving at $5-10-15 a pop. With various deals I pay $17 a month for Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Starz. Only Hulu has ads, and not on their movies. Why on Gods green earth would I pay $5 or $10 for a fraction of the content?
