“The Office” has been one of the most popular shows on Netflix for well over a decade. However, times are changing with the series.
As of January 1, 2021, the show will be switching streaming providers to NBCUniversal’s Peacock, which launched earlier this year. You can read our review of Peacock as well.
“The Office” stars Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, B.J. Novak and countless others. It aired on NBC for nine seasons between March 2005-May 2013.
Peacock will have the first two seasons of “The Office” available for free with ads through its free tier, but the rest of the series will require a Peacock subscription, which costs $4.99 a month for its ad-supported tier (less ads than the free ad-supported tier) and $9.99 a month for the ad-free tier. Both tiers can be subscribed to as in-app purchases through Apple.
Another way to stream the series without Peacock is for those who have their live TV streaming service like Sling TV, YouTube TV, Philo or fuboTV that has Comedy Central on it. Customers of those streaming services can access “The Office” through Comedy Central’s on-demand section.
The same can be said in the Comedy Central app. Once you sign in with your TV provider (cable, satellite or live TV streaming service), you will be able to stream select episodes of the series.
Lastly, you can buy the entire series of the show through iTunes as well. Once purchased through iTunes, you can stream it through the Apple TV app. The Apple TV app is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, select Smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, XBOX One, XBOX Series X&S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
