Comcast reported some better than expected 3Q20 earnings, with an assist from its new streaming service. “Peacock has exceeded every internal engagement metric without the benefit of the Olympics or content like The Office [coming in January 2021],” with nearly 22 million sign-ups. The service is “proving to be a differentiating factor for customers considering Xfinity broadband and is also improving churn,” said the company. Comcast also reported its best quarterly customer results its history, with 633,000 net adds for high-speed internet customers, versus a projected 534,000. On the downside were pandemic-related decreases in advertising, theme parks and filmed entertainment. “We are nearly eight months into this pandemic – and despite many harsh realities, I couldn’t be more pleased and proud of how our team has worked together across the company to find safe and creative solutions to successfully operate in this environment,” said CEO Brian Roberts.
