After giving users a not so subtle hint on Twitter yesterday, Amazon officially announced today that Peacock will be available on Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets in the U.S. starting Thursday, June 24th.
“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,” said Maggie McLean Suniewick, President, Business Development and Partnerships, Direct-to-Consumer. “Amazon customers will find amazing content to stream this summer on Peacock from the Tokyo Olympics to The Boss Baby: Family Business.”
On Peacock, viewers will have access to NBC shows like The Office, Parks and Rec, and Friday Night Lights. The streaming service also has a lineup of originals including Rutherford Falls and Girls 5Eva. Wrestling fans will also want to check out Peacock for live events and on demand content.
“Peacock has built an engaging streaming library that we know Fire TV customers will enjoy,” said Daniel Rausch, Vice President of Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services. “By pairing Peacock with Fire TV, our joint customers will be able to use Alexa and personalized recommendations to rediscover some of the world’s most-loved sitcoms, watch all-new shows like Girls5Eva, and follow Olympic highlights – all from one service. Alexa, watch Peacock.”
Peacock has a free tier with limited content. Peacock Premium is available for $4.99 per month. Viewers may also upgrade Peacock Premium to an ad-free tier for an additional $5.00 per month.
The Peacock app will launch on Fire TVs and Fire tablets starting Thursday and will be compatible with the entire Fire TV product line-up including Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick Lite, and Fire TV smart TV.
