Peacock Paid Subscriber Count Remains at 13M





In Comcast’s Q2 earnings call today, NBCUniversal reported that Peacock user numbers have remained “relatively flat” at 13 million “following a very strong first quarter that was driven by a variety of extraordinary programming.”

The streaming service hit the 13 million subscriber mark in Q1 when 4 million new users were added. Comcast CEO Brian Roberts noted that the Winter Olympics and the Super Bowl led to the adds, writing in the company’s earnings report that the service had “an exceptional quarter.” At that time, Peacock also reported that it had 28 million monthly active users. The company did not share updated monthly active user numbers for Q2.

Comcast is optimistic about the remainder of the year due to new releases and more live events coming to streaming “At NBCUniversal, terrific results at theme parks fueled our growth in the quarter, and we expect our recent premieres and planned slate of content and live events from our media and studios businesses, including Jurassic World: Dominion, Minions: The Rise of Gru, Nope, Sunday Night Football and The World Cup, to make significant contributions later this year, including to our subscriber growth at Peacock,” the earnings report says.

Roberts reiterated during the earnings call that Peacock would have a “very strong fall.”
