Good points by @DBDukes. This determination might be based on the IP number through which you're connecting to Paramount. The IP is assigned to you by your internet provider, but if you relay through a VPN it is the IP from the VPN server that is shown upstream.
You can use a website like https://www.iplocation.net/ to see where the IP number you're presenting to the world indicates you're located.
And I'm in SC too but I'm not seeing that error, either.

Thank you for the information about the chat link. I chatted with a representative, did some troubleshooting at his request and he couldn't figure it out. He "escalated our case for further review" (punted) and said someone would be in contact. We'll see. We'll give it a few days and cancel Peacock if they can't figure it out.
The troubleshooting request was to try it with mobile data hotspot and we had the same issue. We can watch Peacock just fine on our mobile phones on wifi and mobile just fine.
I am having the same issue we have had the same Internet(tmobile)since March no problem until late November now every time we try to get on Peacock It says something went wrong try again later but if I hook it to my hotspot on my phone which is Verizon Internet it works fine and it also works fine on our smart TV And I have had no help solving this issue
Does the issue only occur on Peacock or across other channels installed on your Roku device?
If you haven't tried yet, you can remove the affected channel and then re-install it. To ensure the process is successful, restart your device before adding the channel back in. We would recommend doing this from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings > System > Power (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step.) > System restart.
I’m having the same issue as described above. I have been escalated by Peacock as well. Waiting for a response. To your point, Peacock does not have an option to remove channel when you click options. That was my first recourse when I had this issue. You can’t remove it.
