Viewers of Comcast’s limited ad-supported free tier will have access to the first two seasons, while the rest of the program will be placed behind Peacock’s premium paywall.
The premium version of Peacock costs $5 a month with advertisements and $10 a month without. Comcast customers who use X1-enabled cable boxes or Flex-powered hardware have access to Peacock’s ad-supported premium tier for free and pay just $5 a month to remove commercials.
More than 200 episodes of The Office were produced for Comcast’s broadcast network NBC between 2005 and 2013. The show was a ratings-grabber for NBC and re-runs of the show continued to do well in syndication, on cable and on Netflix.
The Office became one of Netflix’s most-streamed shows after the streaming giant lost another hit NBC show, “Friends,” to rival HBO Max earlier this year.
