'The Office' Seasons 3-9 Will Be Paywalled When Show Moves From Netflix to Peacock

You’ll have to pay $4.99 a month — or $9.99 for no ads — to get more than NBC comedy’s first 2 years

“The Office” will be leaving Netflix for its new streaming home Peacock at the end of the year. But if you thought the show’s move from a subscription service to a free platform meant that it would be available for free — at least in full — you were wrong.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, all 2o1 episodes of the Steve Carell-led series will begin streaming on NBCUniversal’s Peacock, only the first two seasons will be available to those using the free version of the streaming service.

The ad-supported streaming service revealed Monday that you’ll have to pay $4.99 a month for Peacock Premium — or $9.99 for no ads with Peacock Premium Plus — to get all of the Season 3-9 episodes, along with “Superfan Episodes” that include “never-before-seen footage and deleted scenes in extended cuts of the original series.”

Currently, the lowest you can pay to watch “The Office” on Netflix is $8.99 through the streaming service’s “base plan,” which does not give HD access and only allows for one stream at a time. (Netflix recently hiked its “standard” tier price by $1 to $13.99 a month, while its most expensive “premium” tier went up to $17.99 a month, an increase of $2 a month.)
