After years of being there to provide comfort, laughs, and background noise while cleaning your apartment or scrolling through Instagram, The Office is no longer on Netflix. Sadly, the show was removed from the streaming service at the beginning of last year. But fear not! It wasn’t just to torture everyone or force subscribers to watch Emily in Paris. Instead, it was because The Office got a new streaming home.

Rights to the show are owned by NBCUniversal, so when the company decided to launch its own streaming service (enter: Peacock), The Office obvi joined its roster in once Netflix's contract ran out. But Peacock isn’t the *only* place where viewers can watch (and rewatch) The Office. Here are a few options that will keep all of Michael Scott’s “that’s what she said” jokes on your screen.

Stream it on Peacock

Okay, let's start with Peacock. NBC’s streaming service has three subscription options: Peacock (free, limited access), Peacock Premium ($4.99/month, access to everything), and Peacock Premium Plus ($9.99/month, access to everything and no ads).

The first two seasons of The Office are available with a free account, along with bloopers and “clip playlists.” But to watch all nine seasons—and extra bonus footage—you’ll need Peacock Premium or Premium Plus.

Purchase it online

If you don’t want an ongoing subscription to Peacock, another option is to buy seasons or even the entire series online. This is an option on sites like Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play, and iTunes.

Though all of the platforms offer the ability to purchase individual seasons as well as a bundle of them all—save for Amazon Prime and Google Play, which only offer the former— keep in mind they're all priced differently. Individual Amazon Prime seasons, for example, cost $19.99 each with the exception of a shorter season 1, which is $12.99. Similarly, Vudu's The Office season 1 is priced at $9.99, while the rest can be purchased for $17.99 each. Google Play's season 1 is also $9.99, though the latter seasons are each $29.99. Finally, iTunes's pricing varies in that all of the seasons are priced at $12.99. The bundled series can also be purchased for $99.99 on both Vudu and iTunes.

Watch TV

If you're someone who still has good ol' fashioned cable—or something similar like YouTube TV or Hulu + Live TV—then you should know that reruns of The Office are on all the time. (YouTube TV pricing is set to $65/month and Hulu + Live TV, for its part, is $69.99/month.) Comedy Central is constantly replaying the show. Set your DVR to record the series and you’ll get a consistent rotation of episodes.

Buy DVDs

So this one is a little old-school, so any Gen Z readers may have already clicked away LOL. But, if you have a device that can play DVDs—a laptop, an Xbox, or even an actual DVD player (gasp!)—then purchasing the entire series of The Office is one way to know you’ll never go without it.

Think this is an even lamer suggestion than watching it on cable? Fine. Stick with Peacock or buying the seasons somewhere. But no matter what you choose, you should have plenty of options to keep cringing at “Scott’s Tots” for years to come.
