NBC’s Peacock Is Ready to Fly, But Roku and Amazon May Clip Its Wings

But as Peacock prepares to roll out nationwide on July 15, the app is still missing some key distribution partners. NBC has yet to reach agreements to offer the service through Roku and Amazon Fire TV, which together control about 70% of the U.S. streaming-TV-device market, according to Parks Associates. Roku alone currently has about 40 million active users. Peacock has also yet to announce a deal with the second-largest U.S. internet provider, Charter Communications Inc.
