Comcast’s Peacock is now streaming on Roku devices after months of negotiations

Although the Peacock app was on Apple, Android, and Microsoft devices at launch, it wasn’t carried by Roku, which controlled 39% of the streaming device market as of last year, according to Parks Associates, a Texas market researcher. The big sticking point between Comcast and Roku was reportedly ad inventory. Roku typically takes 30% of available ad space from its partners.

Peacock is still missing on Amazon devices, which made up 30% of the streaming media player market as of last year, Parks Associates said. Talks between Comcast and Amazon are ongoing.
