NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock is to be made available over the Roku streaming platform.
It follows a very public argument with NBCUniversal’s parent company Comcast over the statis of several dozen NBCUniversal apps covering some of the operator’s biggest brands including Bravo and SyFy, and the Spanish language Telemundo.
At its launch in July NBCUniversal said Peacock would be available on Microsoft’s Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One S and Xbox One X as well as Apple’s iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD.
However, the cable-style tussle led to Comcast being accused of trying to increase the costs of its portfolio.
“We are pleased Roku recognizes the value in making NBCUniversal’s incredible family of apps and programming, including Peacock, available to all of their users across the country. More than 15 million people signed up for Peacock since its national launch in July and we are thrilled millions more will now be able to access and enjoy Peacock along with other NBCUniversal apps on their favorite Roku device,” said NBC in a statement issued Friday.
