Comcast’s forthcoming entry into the intensifying streaming competition, Peacock, will be profitable within five years and have $2 billion in content and marketing investment in its first two years.

The outlook on the streaming service’s launch next April was provided by Comcast CFO Mike Cavanagh in an appearance at the Ubs Global Tmt Conference in New York.

He confirmed that the ad-supported platform will be free for Comcast customers, with “various pricing tiers” for other subscribers. While he didn’t offer any guidance on pricing, he said revenue from advertising will enable Comcast to “make the price to consumers sensible.”

Peacock is joining a crowded marketplace. Disney and Apple just launched new subscription outlets, at far lower price points than Netflix, the market leader whose most popular level of service costs $13 a month. HBO Max will debut next May at $15 a month.

Cavanagh noted that a full tour through
