Re: Peacock Tv

Jump to solution

Hi,

Hoping that Roku and Peacock can come to a mutual agreement. I’m very happy with both Roku devices in my home.

I am also very happy with NBC’s coverage of the Premier League- this is my reason for subscribing to Peacock. It’s reasonable to assume that NBC has invested a substantial amount of money into rights for the Premier League in the US. It’s also safe to assume the Peacock app and launch are a sizable financial investment.

It seems foolish that NBC would make this endeavor and close out a significant portion of the market who will watch content on a TV. For a major corporation, this is an incredibly short-sighted action. Would they rather have maximum exposure at a smaller margain or have reduced exposure with poor return on their investment?

 

NBc- wise up

Roku needs to get their act together.

You claim you’re an alternative to cable.  But when you aren’t allowed to PURCHASE content from certain networks....you fail.

Make PEACOCK AVAILABLE TO ROKU USERS now.

Hardware manufacturers have different rules when it comes to "smart TV" apps like HBO Max and Peacock. For example, my 9 year old LG Blu-ray player has early versions of the Netflix, Vudu and YouTube apps built in via firmware, but no way to update or add other apps. Companies that make Smart TVs either develop their own OS or license an OS like Android TV, WebOS or Roku. If it's a fixed, internally developed OS, then it's quite possible that, like my Blu-ray player, it just doesn't have the option of adding new apps.

If it's a more open ended OS, then it's a combination of the content provider developing a compatible app and, at least with Roku, entering into a some kind of business agreement to carry the app. As countless others have already pointed out, with Roku and Amazon, there are financial issues that WarnerMedia and Comcast have yet to work out with Roku and Amazon. 

This is why, as a short term work around, I'm using a Chromecast to supplement the built-in Roku platform as a way of accessing HBO Max and Peacock until license agreements can be finalized. It's a little cumbersome, but worth it to me for the additional content those two services offer.

Both HBO MAX and Peacock work on XBOX One.  For the 3 shows on Peacock and HBO that I need to see I hit my big TV hooked up with XBOX.  Every other TV is ROKU all the way.

Premier league moved to Peacock?

Jump to solution

Premier league no longer on NBCSports app as has been moved to Peacock. Why isn’t Peacock available if NBCSports was? When can we expect change? Do I need to find a new device? I have 6 Roku Tvs

Peacock TV maybe coming out with their own device and if that’s the case - of course - they’re not going to make it available on Roku nor Fire. 

If you’ll  notice that’s what Disney has done. They’ve got their own channel with a SUBSCRIPTION fee and they’re  pulling all of their movies and TV programming off of everybody’s channel except their‘s where you’ll pay a SEPARATE fee.

They probably won’t listen. I’ve ditched my rokus, and their stock. They’ll never get Peacock because they want you to spend money on Hulu and Netflix. A company that acts like this won’t be around in 10 years.
