With Rogers, Shaw and Videotron all using X1 and tech sharing with Comcast, what are the odds subscribers of these services get some form of Peacock free like the Comcast and Cox customers do in the US? I think there is a reasonably good change (with certain content omitted for rights ownership purposes of course).
The release is almost certainly referring to Comcast Xfinity X1 and Flex customers, not the just the hardware. In addition, X1 is marketed by different names in Canada. If Peacock does launch in Canada, licensing restrictions will likely mean the absence of thousands of titles on the Canadian version. As long as Canadian broadcasters rely on protectionist policies and vertical market dominance to obtain exclusive licensing in Canada, that will not change.
I think the potential for Peacock in Canada is a long way off, if ever. It's not clear from the quote what the exec was referencing when he talked about launching Peacock internationally. The initial announcements included Comcast's Sky UK division, but that was not mentioned in yesterday's press release, so that may the international launch. Everything I read about Comcast's strategy seems to be about using their existing advertising infrastructure to sell ads in the U.S.
From the US standpoint Canada is not international nor are we remotely "domestic". In fact, in most cases we don't exist. I've yet to see any US news story about new streaming shows ever mention the Canadian service. There was never any mention that Space was carrying Star Trek Discovery in Canada and just last week a Reuters article on Star Trek Picard gave its readers no information about new show's presence on CTV's Sci-Fi channel (or whatever it's called) although it did tell us about where the show could be found in about a half dozen other countries. That Reuters article by the way was published in a Canadian newspaper so you'd think the local editors might have slipped in a CTV plug to inform their readers. Not a mention.
