I do believe that it is the responsibility of NBC to provide the app software, not Roku.

There might be other financial reasons for this that I am unaware of but the technical reasons fall on the shoulders of NBC. Frankly, I'm not sure why they wouldn't write apps that will get them the broadest distribution but likely the reasons are financial. They may be looking for more favorable licensing for an app to run on Roku.

 

Addendum OK... here is one explanation of what is going on https://www.vulture.com/2020/07/why-peacock-isnt-on-roku.html.

Thanks. I was simply responding to the general commentary about roku and Peacock. It really makes no logical sense for NBC/Universal not to create an app for roku, or fireTv for that matter, if they are looking for the largest streaming audience.

As far as getting PeacockTv, it is supported on my LG WebOS TV just fine. I'm invested in roku for widest variety of streaming options.

NO!  Roku just needs to make Peacock available to its customers NOW!  Just get this done, Roku!  This is absurd.  Your customers are clearly VERY unhappy about this.  FIX IT NOW!!!

I am holding my breath.......  Actually, temper tantrums will not stop the impasse.  Remember your place in the Roku hierarchy.  You have no place-or voice- at all.

You simply are experiencing  the results of your own decision of purchasing Roku devices.  It is full of hidden and unexpected pitfalls for the innocent and too trusting.  Nothing is guaranteed.
