Since Comcast’s streaming service launched, it has been free to Comcast Xfinity Video customers and Comcast’s Xfinity Internet customers with Flex. Now starting June 26th Peacock will no longer be free, but Comcast has a great promotional offer for customers who are losing Peacock.
On this month’s bills, Comcast Xfinity is informing customers they will be able to get Peacock for just $2.99 a month for 12 months. Starting June 26th, 2023 if you say Peacock in your voice remote it will sign up for the $2.99 a month offer.
So far it seems that this $2.99 offer is only for customers with a cable TV subscription or an Xfinity Flex streaming box.
This comes as Comcast recently stopped offering a free version of Peacock to non-Comcast customers. In the past, you could get a stripped-down version of Peacock for free. Now you must pay for Premium.
According to the most recent numbers, Peacock has 20 million paying customers with 30 million total active users, including its free accounts. That compares to 46 million subscribers to Paramount+, 73.7 million Disney+ subscribers, and 39.4 million Hulu subscribers.
To help grow Peacocks, NBC has recently been moving some shows from NBC to Peacock, including the long-running ‘Days of Our Lives’ show. NBCUniversal hopes this will drive more subscribers to Peacock.
Now though, it seems no one will be able to use Peacock without paying soon.
