Peacock App on X1 Box Data Use

Does the Peacock app on the X1 Xfinity box use data like the Netflix App? Or does it not use data like typical "on demand" channels.   I cannot find an answer.  If it does then it is not fully free but requires you to use data.  The X1 box should then show up on the data chart in the Xfinity network app.

Yes, just like any other internet app

Does watching Peacock count against my Xfinity Internet data usage?
Yes, Peacock content is streamed from the Internet and will count against your monthly data usage.

Re: Peacock App on X1 Box Data Use

Does anyone know if there is a plan to integrate Peacock like Netflix/Prime? It seems odd that that Comcast owned service would not be part of X1. Surely I'm not alone in that it will limit my use of Peacock given overall data limits.

Re: Peacock App on X1 Box Data Use

Not sure what you mean about Netflix/Prime. Using them also counts against your data. Basically, ANY of the Internet apps count as data. The only time Internet data doesn't count is watching Comcast content on a phone/tablet/Roku on your own home network.
