There was a time that the virtual reality evangelists of the video game world used to seem pretty annoying, with their eternal claims that VR was the future and we all needed to don clunky headsets to join the revolution.

Peacock, the streaming service owned by NBCUniversal — itself a subsidiary of Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) — has at times been written off as an also-ran. Arriving as a soft launch in the spring of 2020, Peacock debuted a handful of months after the appearance of Walt Disney's Disney+, and just six weeks before Warner Bros. Discovery's HBO Max. In the time since, Disney+ has garnered more than 152 million subscribers, while Warner Bros. Discovery has over 92 customers across HBO Max and Discovery+ (the company doesn't offer siloed numbers).
