Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Yep, happy to say I upgraded my original Roku to the basic Roku Express for $21 and it immediately showed Peacock. Would have been utterly clueless the model was the problem until reading this forum -- certainly Roku was no help at all to tell me only certain models worked after signing up.
Anyay, happy now with the free version of Peacock. Yay.
You can add Peacock to your Roku account via the Roku website. It will only download to Peacock-compatible devices, however.
The NBC Peacock app for Roku was written by NBC to be compatible with the following Roku models (Check your model number via Settings > System > About): (Current as of September 22, 2020. Check the source listed below for updates.)
