Amazon and NBCUniversal confirm that the Peacock streaming service will be available on Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets starting June 24.
Peacock launched in July 2020 on platforms like Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, LG webOS, and Vizio SmartCast. It later came to Samsung Tizen and Roku. Amazon was the last major holdout.
Amazon and NBCUniversal have reached a deal, which covers Peacock and 15 network apps including NBC, Bravo, NBC News, and Telemundo.
- "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, D2C. "Amazon customers will find amazing content to stream this summer on Peacock from the Tokyo Olympics to The Boss Baby: Family Business."
