Although I guess you could watch it online and cast/mirror it to your TV using the 3500, I think it would actually make more sense to buy a current model with newer hardware specs, especially if you are purchasing subscriptions.  At least then you would be getting your money's worth from the subscriptions with ease of use. 

More of the newer channels are going to require newer hardware/OS, so you may continue to run into further issues with a different channel after figuring a way to view the Peacock.  Just a consideration for you.

The model 3500 is from 2014, discontinued in 2016. Unfortunately, many app developers are no longer supporting that and some other devices that are from that far back. That Stick of yours is probably the newest device that is losing developer support, despite Roku still officially supporting it.

Before criticizing developers for dropping support for those older devices, they do that to prevent a bad user experience. Those devices are generally underpowered for those apps, so they make the decision to not even support it.
