Later this month, Comcast 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 Cord Cutters News has confirmed 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.
If you don’t have a gigabit internet service 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.)
