NBC Peacock Streaming Service for Canada?

Will NBC’s Peacock streaming service launch in Canada? An NBCUniversal spokesman told iPhone in Canada they plan to launch international markets “down the road”. NBCUniversal currently offers its reality TV streaming service, hayu, which was made available in Canada one year after the U.S. debut, at $5.99 CAD per month. That’s a sign Canadians may get Peacock at some point in the future.

With Apple TV+ and Disney+ coming in November, new streaming subscription options keep growing for Canadians. Would you be interested in Peacock if it ever launches in Canada?
