Jurassic Park trilogy headed to Netflix 17 days after debuting on Peacock

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

As the streaming rights-revolving door continues, Peacock doesn't get to hold on to the JURASSIC PARK trilogy much longer before Netflix becomes their new home. Netflix will be the U.S. streaming home for the original trilogy next month. That means Peacock will have had the right to stream the movies for a mere 17 days.

Netflix made the announcement that the original trilogy will be coming to their service on August 1. The deal only proves that, even with the media conglomerates launching their own direct-to-consumer streaming services, Netflix still isn't being phased out of the licensing game for popular library titles. As for the two most recent entries, 2015's JURASSIC WORLD and 2018's JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, they are not currently available on a subscription streaming service in the U.S.

So why did Peacock only house the JURASSIC PARK trilogy for 17 days? It appears to be the latest move for a new service (Peacock launched July 15) to attract consumers using blockbuster titles. Their hope is that it's long enough to reel a consumer in and then keep them to explore the rest of the service. HBO Max made a similar move with the HARRY POTTER films which were available at launch but will now leave the service on August 23.

I suppose the JURASSIC PARK trilogy is a big get for Netflix but these other services need more than having these blockbuster titles just for a moment. I have yet to explore Peacock, simply because there is too much available out there but having the JURASSIC PARK trilogy for 17 days isn't what would push me to give it a try.
