This weekend most Comcast customers who get free Peacock will lose access to Peacock unless they start paying. Earlier this year Comcast announced that they will no longer be including the streaming service Peacock with most of its internet and TV plans at no additional cost.
NBCUniversal previously offered free access to Peacock Premium members through Comcast, but that deal is now coming to an end. Right now, no new Comcast customers can get the offer, and current customers will lose it on June 25th, 2023.
There is some good news for some Comcast customers as Comcast will continue to offer free Peacock.
Here are the two ways you can keep free Peacock after June 25th as a Comcast customer.
Any Comcast customer with Xfinity 1 Gigabit internet will be able to keep free Peacock. Customers with a 1 Gigabit internet service from Comcast you will get to keep free Peacock until June 2025.
Also, if you are a Xfinity Rewards member with a Diamond or Platinum level reward level, you will be able to keep free Peacock Premium. To get this deal, you will need to log into your Xfinity Rewards account and claim the offer on June 26th 2023.
How to get cheap Peacock after June 25th, 2023, as a Comcast customer.
If you don’t have a gigabit internet or a Diamond/Platinum reard level from Comcast starting on June 26th, 2023, you will lose free access to Peacock. Instead, Comcast is offering a discount on Peacock’s Premium tier plan for a limited time only. Starting June 27th, customers can sign up for Peacock’s streaming service for only $3 a month by simply saying “Peacock” into their Comcast voice-activated remote.
You must sign up by August 25th, 2023, to be included in the deal, otherwise to keep streaming Peacock content, you’d have to purchase a regular membership through the platform.
As stated on Peacock’s Help Center:
- If you want to keep your Premium access going, keep an eye out for another special offer from Xfinity after June 26th. You should see it in your email inbox and when you open Peacock on your set-top box or TV device.
- If you don’t want to keep your Premium access going, don’t do a thing. You won’t be charged for Peacock, and you’ll still be able to watch a limited amount of content for free. (What if I upgraded to Premium Plus? Your $5.00 subscription to Peacock Premium Plus will also stop auto-renewing once your June billing cycle ends.)
If you don’t want to pay and don’t qualify for these offers you may want to rush through as much Peacock content as you can before the offer ends.
