Peacock Will Be Available on Amazon Fire Devices On June 24
NBCUniversal's streaming service can be accessed via Alexa on Amazon's devices.
Peacock will soon be available on Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets in the US. NBCUniversal's streaming platform will be available on Amazon's devices from Thursday, June 24.
The deal between Peacock and Amazon means that the Peacock app will be available on the entire Fire product line. This includes Fire TVs, Fire tablets, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick Lite, and Fire TV smart TV. The service can be launched by Alexa, and later in the year, full Alexa integration will allow users to browse titles on Peacock using their voices.
In a statement, Maggie McLean Suniewick, President of Business Development and Partnerships, Direct-to-Consumer at NBCUniversal, said, "We aim to make Peacock as widely available as possible, so we're excited to bring the service to millions more people who stream on Fire TV and Fire tablets. Amazon customers will find amazing content to stream this summer on Peacock from the Tokyo Olympics to The Boss Baby: Family Business."
The version of Peacock available on Fire devices will be the free, ad-supported tier, which has a more limited selection of shows, movies, and streamed events than the premium version. The ad-supported premium tier costs $5, while the full ad-free version is $10.
Peacock continues to expand its content, and will be providing extensive coverage of the Tokyo Olympics next month. The animated sequel The Boss Baby: Family Business will also premiere in July, while big Paramount films such as A Quiet Place: Part II, Top Gun Maverick, and Mission Impossible 7 will hit the service after their theatrical runs. In addition, the upcoming Paranormal Activity and Pet Sematary sequels are being made exclusively for the service.
