“The Office” has a new streaming home at Peacock, the free streaming service launched by NBCUniversal in July 2020. While Peacock was already home to NBC sitcoms like “30 Rock” and “Parks & Recreation,” a prior agreement kept “The Office” on Netflix until the end of 2020.

Peacock has every episode of “The Office,” but only seasons one and two are available to watch for free. Peacock Premium costs $5 per month and will give you full access to every movie and TV show on the platform, including all nine seasons of “The Office.” 

Peacock Premium subscribers also get to watch previously unreleased footage of “The Office” and extended “Superfan” episodes with bonus content. Curated playlists guide fans through the series’ top episodes, and there are short clips of the Dunder Mifflin crew’s most memorable scenes.

To help celebrate the arrival of “The Office,” Peacock shared some of the new behind the scenes footage on YouTube.

How to watch ‘The Office’

As of January 1, 2021, you’ll need a Peacock account to stream “The Office.” The basic Peacock plan is free to watch with a few commercials every hour, and has hundreds of hit movies and TV shows from NBC and Universal Pictures.

The app is available on Apple devices, Android, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox and most smart TVs. Peacock streams in up to 1080p resolution, and doesn’t have support for HDR (high dynamic range) color, though the platform says that feature is coming eventually.

All nine seasons of “The Office” are also available for purchase through digital platforms, like Vudu and FandangoNow.

Is ‘The Office’ free on Peacock?

The first two seasons of “The Office” are available for free on Peacock, but you’ll need to pay $4.99 per month for Peacock Premium to watch every episode. This plan unlocks access to all nine seasons and extra content.

Peacock Premium is still ad-supported, however, but you can upgrade to the commercial free Peacock Premium Plus plan for $9.99 per month. 

Peacock Premium and Peacock Premium Plus both offer a free seven-day trial for new members.
