Peacock held steady at 13 million subscribers. “At NBCUniversal, terrific results at theme parks fueled our growth in the quarter, and we expect our recent premieres and planned slate of content and live events from our media and studios businesses… to make significant contributions later this year, including to our subscriber growth at Peacock,” said Comcast CEO Brian Roberts. “Looking ahead, our company is in an enviable strategic and financial position, with substantial cash flow generation and a strong foundation for innovation.”

We expect these challenges to continue in the near term as economic concerns pressure markets worldwide.”
Apple revenue rose 2% year-over-year to $83 billion, while earnings per diluted share were at $1.20, down from $1.30 in the same period in 2021.
