What is Peacock?

  • Peacock is a streaming service by NBCUniversal named after the NBC logo
  • Catalog includes or will include Parks and Recreation, The Office and Law & Order: SVU
  • Three plans, starting with a free one. 
  • Also available to Comcast’s Xfinity and Flex customers 
  • Distributed by Sky TV in Europe

How can I watch Peacock outside the US?

Peacock launched in the United States, but it’s also available in European countries covered by Sky: UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland.

If you want to stream Peacock outside the US, you’ll need an American IP (or one from the previously mentioned countries) and a VPN to provide it.

Here’s how you can stream Peacock with Surfshark:

  1. Sign up for Surfshark VPN
  2. Install it on your device of choice
  3. Log in & connect to a Surfshark VPN server in the US.
  4. Stream Peacock!

 

Do I have to connect to a US server?

Not necessarily. Countries covered by Sky TV – so the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland – will often work, at least for the free version. You still need a VPN if you live anywhere else.

What can I watch on Peacock?

The Office

NBC is going to pull The Office from other services by 2021. Peacock will then be the only streaming service featuring the romance between Jim and Pam.

Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation was removed from Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu in October 2020. Today, you need a Peacock VPN if you want to indulge in the only hit comedy about urban planning.

Movie Franchises You Love

The Fast and The Furious, Borne, and Despicable Me series of movies are just some of the many featured on the Peacock streaming service.

Nostalgic Classics

Want to rewatch Jaws, E.T., or The Breakfast Club? They are all there on Peacock.

Nostalgic Remakes

Do you have fond memories of Saved By The Bell, Punky Brewster, or Battlestar Galactica? Because those will receive reboots as some of the first Peacock original series.

Peacock Originals

Peacock is already producing original content. Sci-fi series The Brave New World and the movie Psych 2 will be the first - but not the last.

Sports, Sports, Sports!

Peacock opened on July 15 because of the Tokyo Olympics - even if the event was postponed to 2021. The Premium package will also give access to Premier League Soccer.

Early Access to Talk Shows

Peacock airs talk shows The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and Late Night With Seth Meyers hours before conventional TV.

News of Today - And Yesterday

Peacock also broadcasts NBC’s morning television show Today as part of its news lineup. Looking for something more historical? Ancient Aliens, Cold Case Files, and other favorites are there as well - if you use a Peacock VPN.
