Roberts

Chairman / CEO

At the height of COVID in spring 2020, Roberts launched NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock, racking up more than 5 million signups, and began making some Universal movies available at home in lieu of their theatrical dates. He also eased the burden on low-income customers sheltering at home by increasing the speed of its discount internet service, providing 60 days of free access through its Internet Essentials program and making 1.5 million Xfinity wi-fi hotspots available to all.
