Peacock TV has been widely available for nearly a year and it’s still not officially available on Fire TV devices. While many people have sideloaded the app, at Peacock’s own suggestion, it certainly hasn’t been an ideal solution. That’s all finally going to change because it looks like the app will be coming to Fire TV devices tomorrow.
There hasn’t been an official announcement yet, but the official Fire TV Twitter account just tweeted “Tomorrow’s announcement is NOT a prank” with an image of a Fire TV remote photoshopped into the jello prank scene from The Office, Peacock’s most popular TV show. The official Peacock Twitter account then replied to that tweet with “Damnit, Jim!,” a popular phrase from The Office, as if to imply the Fire TV account couldn’t wait to reveal the big news.
Peacock’s webpage for which devices are supported still says it is “in continued discussions” to bring the app to Fire TV devices, but at some point within the last week, Peacock removed the suggestion to sideload its app. Peacock is the last major streaming service not yet available on Fire TV devices. The service has long been available on all major streaming platforms. While it has been a long wait, it’s good to see that Amazon and NBCUniversal have likely finally reached an agreement and are likely bringing the app to Fire TV devices.
