I wanted to hate them, but I ended up loving them

Can it be? We found the one person willing to defend Peacock?! oh it's just peacock.
We're playing the long game
Step 1: steal The Office
Step 2: Infiltrate Reddit
Step 3: Profit
You aren’t supposed to know step 2.
This is why you’ll fail.
He is playing both sides so he always ends up on top.
He's like a carpenter who builds stairs
Dude sounds like they know how to sit on a fence. I bet they can even sleep on a fence.
The trick is to put the post in your mouth
Just keep haulin cubes man
I mean he's right, I hate that they pulled it but they put in a bunch of extra scenes I've never seen before so it's interesting to watch again
The first time I watched it the episodes automatically included the deleted scenes and the next time I pulled it up it was the regular episode that aired and I can't get the deleted scenes version back! How do you watch those ones?
I have no issue with peacock other than the clunky user interface.
I wonder if it's different depending on how you view it? On the Roku TV it's really clean, organized well, and super intuitive
I’m on the peacock Comcast app. It’s clunky.
You almost got me. Not today Peacock!
I don't enjoy paying $5/month and still getting 45-second commercial breaks. I'm going to cancel once I finish this umpteenth rewatch with new content and then go back to my iTunes collection.
Wait... you pay and there are still commercials?
Yea, u pay $5 or so to watch every buy with short ads or something like $10 to go ad free. Hulu does the same thing
Oh I didn't realize there was an ad-free tier. That's pretty clever
Like the fool I am. That 45 second break is enough for me to pick my phone back up and be distracted when the show resumes.
I’m gonna feel like a real asshole if someone tells me a lot of the bonus content is on YouTube. But I’m here for two months max. Literally nothing else I care to see or binge, especially with ad breaks.
Are u ok?
I’m doing pretty well. Have my ups and downs like most. Thanks for asking. You?
I can't complain. You said you're here for 2 months max I had to ask
Super thoughtful. Thank you. “Here” meaning Peacock as a service only lol. Don’t know if the universe has any plans for me outside of that, but I’m hoping I’m around more than just two more months.
What a relief, I'm sure the universe has far more plans for you my friend.
Not if you watch in Chrome with Ublock.
I get it for free just by having internet with xfinity
Get off your high horse, richie.
Lol just saying if you have comcast for anything it's free since they own nbc
Naaaah, you're rich. lol.
That's really the one login hookup I don't have. We're stuck with Spectrum, and my in-laws have Optimum, so I have some of their access.
Do you get the completely ad-free version for free? Or are you on the $5 tier?
I wish.. it's the $5 tier, but I don't mind the ads either. I can simply use my phone while I wait
Excuse me, I have xfinity, I didn't know this.
How many commercial breaks per episode, on average?
You can pay $10/month and have no commercials, which is still cheaper than the standard Netflix plan.
The basic is $8.99 and doesn't have commercials.
I got it because I thought it showed all of the English Premier League games. Turns out that’s way not true. I definitely don’t plan on keeping it much longer.
Anyone able to figure out how to “continue watching” on peacock? They really want me to remember which episode I was on last session?!
No, this is a problem Peacock has with a lot of features. They’re really behind other streaming platforms. You can’t even start a live event from the beginning if you happen to come in the middle of it, and you can’t rewind or fast forward live events either. Really just poor quality all around
It’s too bad they’re such pioneers in the game, coming so early and really breaking new ground. I feel like if they had just had one or two solid examples of quality streaming services ahead of them, they would have easily been able to avoid issues like the ones you’ve described. After all,
If you go to the browse tab, there should be a continue watching panel. At least on Xbox and Apple TV.
I like that you can watch S1 and S2 for free, and without ads if you install a blocker on your browser. Otherwise, I am annoyed, because I'm not paying for a service to exclusively watch The Office.
Why waste time watch many show when one show do trick?
don't worry there are plenty indexers with all the goodies 😎
usenet still has every release you'd find on BHD or PTP, and no, a .tor indexer.
you must be out of touch if you think usenet isn't one of the best places for p2p in 2021
I use BTN and PTP, but you'd find the exact same file on usenet.
Yeah, nice try, Peacock.
"Hey, I'm Peacock Mike"
“Blessed be those who sit and wait” - Michael Scott (Season 1 episode 5)
I get it for free through Comcast, but I would not pay for the service. Obviously the content is there as they own it, but the platform itself has all kinds of bugs and errors and why is there a fee+commercials?
This is such blatant marketing i don’t know if everyone on this thread is a peacock employee
I’ve flirted with the idea of getting it but can’t do it 😔 I miss the office but can’t do it
I have peacock. The app is trash. I’d pay another $10 just to have it back on Netflix
I don’t like the different cuts of the show. I miss the Netflix cut
The app isn’t available on half the platforms. The only way for me to watch it on my tv is to use Ps5. Makes no sense at all. Even then app keeps crashing. I Hate it.
There’s a longer version of threat level midnight!?!?
Search “Threat Level Midnight - Full Movie” on YouTube. It’s there as well. ;)
Also, there is a longer version of Michael's Lazy Scranton video!
Where is it?
Right?? We discovered it last night and it's awesome. I didn't know there were cut scenes from it, but there are.
[Here ya go!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iPyz6Yqwl4)
When the whole streaming service is built around one show they better do a good job with it
No doubt. Honestly, we only did the 1-month trial because it was free but then liked the content so much that we kept the subscription. I don't know if there's anything else we watch on there, so if $5 a month for 1 show is too much then it's probalby not worth it, but we like it.
We considered just pirating it because we have a Plex box, but the different ways of displaying the shows made it worth it for us
They have the entire wwe network with live ppvs now.
Also frasier, 30 rock, and parks amd recreation. They have enough to justify 10 bucks imo.
How do the DVDs compare to what Peacock airs?
The DVDs have all the items, but the way they're presented on Peacock makes it better. For instance, if you want to watch the episodes with the deleted scenes in you watch the Superfan selection. If you just want to watch clips of a specific character you can do that, or if you want to watch full versions of all of Michael's home made videos you can do that too. There are a bunch of ways they've merged and divided up the content
superfan is only season 3
that's kind of interesting actually. Honestly, I haven't watched the office since it left netflix, but i do own the DVD boxset.
I'm thinking about buying it.
I pulled the trigger when they took out that scene in Dwight's Christmas. I figure at least I'll have a complete copy of the original run.
IIRC, the box set also has the Halloween cold open they later took out.
Fast forward and rewind sucks though. I miss being able to see what frame I'm going to. Other than that, no complaints!
Yeah, the platform definitely needs work
More superfan episodes!
I thought we moved past this pal, like 3 months ago
I gave it a couple months before realizing this
Allthat extra stuff is on youtube free
I know, and that's how we used to watch it. But it's harder to find and isn't as seamless when you're watching an episode then have to switch over to YouTube to watch the deleted scenes
Yeah, we did a Parks and Rec rewatch not long ago and I was super surprised and very very happy to see added scenes! Bobby Newport and Shawna Mallwaytweep get married, Jam gets a future thing too and I believe someone else did too, it was dope!
Nice to be able to afford.
and the intro doesn't break your ear drums each time.
Where are the rest of the Superfan Episodes?
I hat how I enjoy this meme
Watching it again but on peacock. Smart tv app is a little buggy and they do not support chromecast on chrome! It's only the beginning, so they have lots of room for improvement.
I haven't & won't get peacock. They had a free week awhile back & I watched at my boyfriend's house. I did like the extra scenes, but I did not find the platform to be user friendly at all. The whole app seems clunky & counter-intuitive for me. My plan is to buy a blu ray player & but the discs.
This exactly. The office on peacock is great. All the extras are awesome
Netflix in NZ may only have 7 things on it, but at least we've still got The Office.
Don't make me do it man 😢
We're watching all the webisodes right now!
Nice try, Peacock Marketing Team!!
I watched season 1 & 2 for free not expecting to ever actually sign up, but once I started I couldn't stop. Also every episode of Parks and this really interesting John Wayne Gacy documentary have made it worth it so far. Once I finish Office and Parks I'll probably cancel though.
And all the Harry Potter movies
I'm new to Peacock, why do people hate it so much, doesn't bother me so far
Most likely because it's yet another streaming service we have to pay money for, to watch shows that all used to be on a single service.
Yeah, but why hate on this one specifically? It seems like they have a wider selection of shows I actually like, Netflix has become mostly lame originals for tweens or middle-aged moms
Because Redditors, especially on this sub, are too stupid to realize that Peacock is no different from Netflix. They’re just mad their favorite show isn’t on the platform they’ve always used, despite the new one having way better shows/movies.
Yeah, I honestly think it's just a branding thing lol. Netflix is the cooler brand. People shit on the concept of branding not having any clue how easily influenced they are by it.
I bought the complete series of iTunes. I can watch it across all my apple devices and on my Apple TV 4K. Best investment ever
The only thing I've ever done this with was Flight of the Conchords
Did they ever fix the issue with auto play not working?? I bought it on iTunes also, but I have to manually select the next episode to play. Extremely annoying
I’m probably alone in this regard but I don’t have an issue with it not auto playing the next episode. It’d be nice but it’s not a deal breaker..
Hey so not sure but it auto plays on my iPad pro
/r/hailcorporate is thataway.
I disagree wholeheartedly with you.
I hate so much about the things that you choose to be.
Good to know, thanks!
No no no.... fuck you, peacock. I’ll never pay for your shenanigans, and I’ll never forgive you for taking it off Netflix.
🏴☠️ 🏴☠️ 🏴☠️
Wait ... do you get longer episodes?!
Yep! They have a "Superfan" collection that incorporates a bunch of the deleted scenes into the episodes. Obviously they can't add all the deleted scenes in since they will try different versions of one scene, but they'll pick one of them and add them all in
So far it’s just season 3 of The Superfan episodes right?
I think so. We were disappointed there weren't more. Seems like they're adding more stuff regularly
Whoa! I’m suddenly so jealous! It’s still on netflix here but this seems like a better option
Not paying them for old content. Only reason HBO keeps getting my money is because I'm addicted to Doom Patrol.
Still hate them.
No Peacock. Not ever.
I wish the peacock app worked on Samsung TVs
It doesn't? That's weird, but not surprising I guess. We have a Roku TV
I bought the whole thing on Apple TV. Does that mean I get the same package?
I’ll still hate them until they give me those Superfan extended episodes of “additional seasonS in March 2021” as promised
Still have to pay to see it all, though... And now it's an additional subscription
Make a Samsung TV app and then I'll use Peacock.
I can see that if you really like the deleted scenes. Personally I find them hit & miss, with the worst ones being out of character. I prefer to keep them at the end of the episode through Plex.
Same exact experience with me
Whats in the extended cut of Threat Level Midnight? Spoiler tag it but I want to know
I’ve been Defending peacock. They have done a fantastic job.
Yeah this was me as well
Ugh I can’t get Peacock on Amazon fire stick tho 😣
I got so upset when i found out they were removing the office and sombrely opened netflix to find...
That it was still there lol because i live in canada and apparently they didn’t remove it here
Oooorrrrr... and hear me out... the DVDS.
DM me if anyone wants a pirated copy
Great job, but I'm still not subscribing to it
And they turned the volume down significantly on the intro music.
