Comcast CEO says Peacock registers 15 mln users, up 50% in 6 weeks

Wednesday 16 September 2020 | 09:38 CET | News

NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock has reached 15 million sign-ups, a 50 percent increase in six weeks, CNBC reports. The number was given by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts said at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference for investors. 

Comcast last reported it had 10 million sign-ups on 30 July, just a few weeks after launching nationally and about three months after debuting for some Comcast and Cox customers. Peacock is available both as a free and paid service, with  Comcast Xfinity cable customers and some Cox cable customers getting free access to Peacock Premium as part of their TV or broadband subscriptions. 

The 15 million sign-ups account for any customer that has signed up for the service — free or paid. Roberts didn’t disclose how many sign-ups were free vs. paid subscribers.

NBCUniversal has a goal of reaching 30-35 million active Peacock accounts by 2024, the company said earlier this year.
