Will 1917 be available for streaming on Netflix?

Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that 1917 will be available for streaming on Netflix.

1917 will be distributed by Universal Pictures which is owned by NBCUniversal. NBCUniversal plans to roll out its streaming service in April 2020. The streaming service, Peacock, will be a direct rival of Netflix, and so, it’s highly unlikely that Universal Pictures will hand streaming rights to Netflix.

Where will 1917 be available for streaming?

1917 will likely be available for streaming on NBCUniversal’s Peacock.

Peacock will be rolled out sometime in April 2020. NBCUniversal has promised a lot of content during the launch, and we suspect that 1917 will form part of the content.

NBCUniversal has been aggressive in getting content for Peacock, and it has managed to get shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation from other streaming services.
