There are far too many streaming services at this point to have them all. TONS of people have Peacock now, and there are a couple big reasons for that.
Not only does Peacock come free with Comcast and some other service providers, but they also have some huge drawing points, namely The Office and WWE.
Comcast announced on Thursday that they have added more than 9 million subscribers to Peacock following some huge pick-ups for the streaming service. Those notably include The Office and WWE.
The Office is obviously a huge drawing point. Many fans were devastated during that short period of time after their Netflix contract lapsed. Now the show is on Peacock with uncut episodes and deleted scenes.
WWE also arrived on Peacock just in time for WrestleMania 37. It’s unknown how many subscribers they brought over from the WWE Network, but any American fan who wants WWE’s streaming content must go through Peacock now.
Needless to say, it didn’t take long for Peacock to become a contender in the streaming market. They now have around 44 million subscribers in the United States, on par with HBO Max’s 44.2 million.
