The Office: Where and how to watch, now that it’s off Netflix
The Office has left Netflix for the foreseeable future. While the streamer has plenty of other good sitcoms for you to choose from in its absence, you don’t have to abandon Dunder Mifflin entirely. Every season of The Office is still available to stream, you’ll just have to use NBC’s Peacock service the next time you want to take a trip to Scranton.
For many viewers, The Office might be the first reason they’ve found for using Peacock, so we’ve got everything you need to know about the streaming service and how to use it to watch The Office.
How much does Peacock cost?
The most basic version of Peacock is completely free, but requires you to watch ads at certain points during shows and movies. All you have to do is create an account and you can start streaming. Unfortunately, not every show is part of Peacock’s free option, which means your selection is somewhat limited.
If you want access to everything, Peacock also has two different kinds of subscriptions: There’s Peacock Premium, which offers all of Peacock’s streaming content, but keeps the ads, and there’s Peacock Premium Plus, which eliminates the ads. Peacock Premium costs $4.99 a month, while Premium Plus costs $9.99 a month.
Is The Office free on Peacock?
Sort of. The first two seasons of The Office are free with ads, but that’s it. For every other season of the series you’ll need to pay for one of the two subscription options. If you subscribe to either of those you can watch any Office content that Peacock has to offer.
Is there any Office bonus content on Peacock?
Yes. There are dozens of clip collections, specific episode playlists catered to certain characters, behind the scenes videos from the show’s original run, and even extended editions of certain episodes. Like most of The Office content on the service, you’ll need Peacock Premium to get access to all of this.
What if I don’t want to get Peacock?
If you’d rather not subscribe to Peacock, you can also buy the entire series from iTunes for $29.99. This is a ridiculous price and even beats out subscribing to Peacock for just a few months. Of course, this option means you won’t get any of the other content from Peacock, but if all you want is nine seasons worth of Office episodes, this is probably the best option.
