Peacock Will Finally Be on Roku After Deal Reached with NBCUniversal

Good news for Roku users – Peacock will finally be available on the platform!

The new streaming service launched to the general public on July 15, but it has been missing from Roku for the past two months as the company could not reach a deal with NBCUniversal.

New reports this week said that NBCU was planning on pulling all of its apps from Roku due to their disagreement. But now, a distribution deal has been reached that will keep NBCU apps on Roku and finally bring Peacock to its users.

“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Comcast that will bring Peacock to Roku customers and maintains access to NBCU’s TV Everywhere apps,” Roku said in a statement (via THR). “We look forward to offering these new options to consumers under an expanded, mutually beneficial relationship between our companies that includes adding NBC content to The Roku Channel and a meaningful partnership around advertising.”

Earlier this month, the founder of Roku explained why HBO Max and Peacock were still not being offered to users.
