Peacock TV is one of the numerous streaming services that Americans use; in fact, it’s an American service and a pretty impressive one! It’s a very young service, as it was launched in 2020. Peacock TV was created by Peacock TV, LLC, meaning an offspring of NBCUniversal Television and Streaming.
Even though we’re talking about an American service, there are numerous Canadians interested in using Peacock TV to watch their favorite movies and shows. However, this has been a little difficult for them, but it doesn’t have to be like that anymore!
Peacock TV is loaded with entertainment options, as it won’t hesitate to provide numerous movies and TV shows to the user. There are even powerful offerings from third-party content providers that NBCUniversal Television and Streaming’s service has to offer.
Now for the million-dollar question: can someone enjoy Peacock TV from Canada? Let’s find out!
Peacock TV is NOT available in Canada, but there is hope
Peacock TV cannot provide its services to countries other than the US, including Canada, because of complicated licensing and rights issues.
However, it is possible that NBCUniversal will try to expand Peacock TV internationally once it grows the number of subscribers. What’s for sure is that there are some plans to expand the service beyond the boundaries of the US.
