Wondering how to watch The Office online in the US now that it has left Netflix? You have to subscribe to Peacock, NBCUniversal’s new streaming service. The first two seasons are free to stream. Seasons three through nine require a Peacock Premium subscription, which starts at $ 4.99 per month (a one-week free trial is available if you sign up today through Digital Trends).
To celebrate The Office’s return to NBC, where it first aired in the US, the network has launched a collection of so-called “Superfan Episodes”
NBC launched a new channel on Peacock to celebrate its release. Entitled The Office Zen, the station broadcasts The Office-like ambient sounds 24 hours a day, seven days a week, described by NBC as “a channel of ambient sound dedicated to the sights and sounds of the office for everyone who works from home.” But for most fans, the episodes are the only background sound they want.
Buy single episodes or entire seasons …
While it’s an unpopular choice, you have the option to buy individual episodes and even entire seasons. If you sign up exclusively for The Office at Peacock, we recommend buying The Office: The Complete Series on iTunes for $ 30 and take advantage of Peacock’s free trial to watch the new Superfan episodes. Do this now and you’ll save $ 15 this year alone.
Should you for any reason choose to go this route, you can use these purchases to create your own The Office streaming service (more on that later) by transferring them from iTunes to your Mac / PC for local use . access. Alternatively, you can stream them on any compatible Apple device via the Apple TV application after purchase.
Alternatively, you can buy The Office DVD Set on Amazon for $ 50. It’s $ 20 more than the digital version on iTunes, but you have cold, hard DVDs in your possession this way. However, things get a bit tricky here, if you want to store them digitally, and the copyright protection prohibits you from burning content stored on DVDs on a computer or other personal media device.
… And create your own streaming service
Listen to us. The office is known to move a lot from streaming service to streaming service in the US. Sure, it’s safe to assume it found its retirement home in Peacock, but who wants to shell out $ 4.99 a month? We are die-hard fans. You want to watch The Office forever, don’t you? So why not create your own personal streaming service with Plex?
This is not as complicated as it sounds. It’s a bit like uploading a file to Dropbox, but in this case, you’re uploading episodes from The Office to your own Plex Server, which you can access via Smart TVs and on Android and iOS and online. You even have the option to download episodes or entire seasons for offline viewing – something Peacock doesn’t currently offer.
