NEW YORK, June 23, 2021 - NBCUniversal and Amazon announced today that Peacock will launch on Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets in the U.S. starting Thursday, June 24th. The Peacock app will bring thousands of hours of on-demand movies and shows, as well as live news and sports programming, to tens of millions of Fire TV and Fire tablet customers nationwide.

"We aim to make Peacock as widely available as possible, so we're excited to bring the service to millions more people who stream on Fire TV and Fire tablets," said Maggie McLean Suniewick, President, Business Development and Partnerships, Direct-to-Consumer. "Amazon customers will find amazing content to stream this summer on Peacock from the Tokyo Olympics to The Boss Baby: Family Business."

In addition to adding Peacock to Fire TV and Fire tablets, NBCUniversal and Amazon reached a distribution agreement for NBCUniversal's network apps. NBCUniversal's 15 network apps on these Amazon devices include NBC, Bravo, NBC News, NBC Sports and Telemundo, among others.

"We look forward to building on our existing partnership with Fire TV's millions of customers and offering them Peacock's undeniable line-up of original, library and film content," said Matt Bond, Chairman, Content Distribution, NBCUniversal. "This marks another great step in reaching audiences everywhere with the breadth of NBCUniversal's full entertainment, film, Hispanic, news and sports portfolio."

"Peacock has built an engaging streaming library that we know Fire TV customers will enjoy," said Daniel Rausch, Vice President of Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services. "By pairing Peacock with Fire TV, our joint customers will be able to use Alexa and personalized recommendations to rediscover some of the world's most-loved sitcoms, watch all-new shows like Girls5Eva, and follow Olympic highlights - all from one service. Alexa, watch Peacock."

The Peacock app will launch on Fire TVs and Fire tablets starting Thursday and will be compatible with the entire Fire TV product line-up including Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick Lite, and Fire TV smart TV. With Alexa, Fire TV customers can search for and open Peacock using their voice, just say "Alexa, open Peacock." Full Alexa title integration will roll out later this year, which will allow customers to navigate the entire Peacock catalog from the Alexa Voice Remote, or by using voice from across the room with Fire TV Cube or by pairing an Echo device to any Fire TV streaming media stick or Fire TV smart TV.
