For those missing their weekly dose of Dunder Mifflin, and those that have never seen the show before, it is possible to stream every episode of The Office. There are two versions of the popular show, a US and UK version, and both can be streamed online. However, for those wanting access to both versions, more than one subscription is required.

Starring Ricky Gervais as David Brent, the UK version of The Office first arrived in 2001. This was then followed by the US version in 2005 with Steve Carell as Michael Scott. Both versions of the show have proven extremely popular over the years, and are still very much in demand today.

When it comes to the US version of the show, The Office is usually available to stream at any time with a live TV subscription. Therefore, any homes that are already signed up to the likes of Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, or YouTube TV, may find that they already have access to some or even all of the episodes, and at no additional cost.

For those without a live TV streaming subscription, or one that doesn’t include on-demand access to the show, there are standalone streaming services that offer access to both the UK and US versions of The Office.

Every episode of the US version of The Office is available to stream on Peacock. This is NBCUniversal’s standalone streaming service, and considering the show was originally broadcast in the US on NBC, it is no surprise that Peacock is the place to stream The Office.

In total, all nine seasons are available to stream with a Peacock subscription, resulting in more than 200 individual episodes. While Peacock does offer a free tier, The Office requires a paid Premium subscription. There are two Premium plans to choose between, with the standard plan priced at $4.99 per month, and Premium Plus priced at $9.99 per month.

There are a number of differences between the Premium and Premium Plus plans, but the main one to be aware of is that Premium Plus is an ad-free subscription. Therefore, those wanting to watch The Office without ads will want to consider signing up to the more expensive Premium Plus subscription.

  • Season 1 (2005) – 6 episodes
  • Season 2 (2005) – 22 episodes

In addition to all of the seasons listed above, a Peacock Premium subscription also includes access to The Office: Superfan Episodes.

In most cases, these episodes are extended cut versions of the original episodes with never-before-seen content, including deleted scenes, bloopers, featurettes, and interviews.

If interested in watching the UK version of The Office, there’s more than one option available. Unlike the US show, there are only two seasons of the UK version. Along with the 2003 two-part Christmas special, this results in a total of 14 episodes.

The first option for watching every episode of the UK version of The Office is Hulu. The basic version of Hulu costs $7.99 per month and can be bundled with Disney Plus and ESPN Plus for as little as $12.99 per month. These prices are in relation to the ‘with ads’ Hulu subscription. For those that want ad-free access on Hulu, a subscription costs $14.99 per month, or $19.99 per month when bundled with Disney Plus and ESPN Plus.

The Office (UK) seasons available to stream on Hulu:

  • Season 1 (2001) – 6 episodes
  • Season 2 (2002) – 6 episodes
  • Christmas Special, Part 1 (2003)
  • Christmas Special, Part 2 (2003)

The other option for watching the UK version in the US is BritBox. This is a streaming service that provides access to a wide selection of British TV, so it is not surprising that The Office is available as well. A BritBox subscription costs $7.99 per month, and although this isn’t any cheaper than Hulu, BritBox is an ad-free streaming service. As a result, BritBox offers every episode of the UK version of The Office, without ads, for almost half the cost of a standalone ad-free Hulu subscription.

The Office (UK) seasons available to stream on Britbox:

  • Season 1 (2001) – 6 episodes
  • Season 2 (2002) – 6 episodes
  • Christmas Special, Part 1 (2003)
  • Christmas Special, Part 2 (2003)

Where to watch The Office summary

For those looking to binge the US version of The Office, Peacock is the place to be. Not only does a subscription unlock every episode of season 1-9, but it also includes five seasons of The Office: Superfan Episodes as well. The standard Peacock Premium subscription costs $4.99 per month, and there’s the option to upgrade to the ad-free Premium Plus plan at $9.99 per month.
