Members can likely expect a plethora of additional streaming video services on Peloton Entertainment once the feature officially launches.
In case you missed it, Peloton Entertainment – Peloton’s new feature that allows members to access streaming content from their hardware device like the Bike or Tread – is currently in the beta testing phase. Members included in the beta test group now have an “Entertainment” option included in the “More” tab on their hardware screen. Only Amazon Prime TV and YouTube TV are currently included in the test.
However, it appears that Peloton is preparing to rapidly expand the streaming services to other content providers. At this time it is not clear if all of these additional services would be added when the Peloton Entertainment feature officially launches to everyone out of beta, or if these would be slowly released afterwards in the coming weeks & months.
Multiple members have reported that they temporarily gained access to numerous additional streaming video options through Peloton Entertainment. They were able to log into their accounts with their credentials for that specific provider – but the additional options were removed within a few hours.
It would seem Peloton was intending to test these additional video options with a much smaller group, but they were accidentally added to a bigger test group before being removed.
The additional streaming services that appeared within Peloton Entertainment to some members include:
- Apple TV+
- CBS Sports
- Fox Sports
- Fubo TV
- HBO Max
- NBC Sports
- Paramount Plus
- Pluto TV
Many thanks to a well known Peloton troubleshooter for sharing the below video, showing all these additional services showing up for them.
Based on these options appearing temporarily, it seems likely that Peloton is prepared to add them to the Entertainment feature in the coming weeks or months.
Members will likely notice a major brand missing from the list – Netflix. While there were no reports of Netflix appearing within the Peloton Entertainment beta test, it is difficult to imagine Netflix not ultimately being included. Not only is it the largest streaming service provider by subscribers, but Peloton CEO Barry McCarthy is their former Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
