You can now add Peacock to Roku

Jump to solution

According to Cord Cutters, you can add Peacock to Roku now via private channel.

'To add the channel, start by signing up for a Peacock subscription. Then, login to your Roku account and click here to navigate to the Peacock Roku channel. If you’re prompted to enter a code, enter PEACOCK. The channel will be installed on your Roku device and you’ll be able to sign into your Peacock account to start streaming.'

A direct link to the channel add is here:

Note the misleading information provided by Peacock that this channel is "free".  Read THE WHOLE page before signing up.

[EDIT -- I have now installed this channel and see that the initial installation provides access to their free, more limited, ad-supported tier.  To subscribe to the higher tiers requires additional, separate action on the part of the viewer.]

The link signs you up for the Peacock free preview tier currently offered, but further on down you'll see this:

Peacock Premium / Peacock Premium Plus subscription charges may begin at the conclusion of any free trial or promotional period, as may be applicable. You will be charged on a recurring basis. Your subscription will auto-renew until you cancel. Cancel at any time by visiting your account. By subscribing, you agree to the preceding subscription terms and our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

These are the normal terms for most any subscription service but those who sign up without reading the conditions they are agreeing to will be caught unaware,

I should hope that most people would realize what "free trial" means these days.

Yeah, me too, but from the number of clueless posts we see here in this regard all the time it's clear that many don't.

Their main graphic on that page doesn't say FREE TRIAL, it says STREAM FOR FREE in bold yellow letters.  Hence my warning to read the WHOLE page before jumping in.

Don't forget that Peacock does have a truly free tier. It just doesn't have as many titles available.

You won't be billed if you read everything and just sign up for the fully free tier. The trials would obviously become billable.

Just installed Peacock via Roku account but it's not listed on my Home channels.  Do I have to wait for awhile for it to show up or is my device too old (it's a Roku 2)?
