What is Peacock, and how can I watch it?

Peacock TV launched to the public in July 2020. Peacock is NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, and, as you can imagine, as one of the leading US TV providers, their list of content is pretty impressive. At the time of launch, its free service offered over 15,000 hours of content and their premium options over 20,000.

Its library includes titles from NBC, SyFy, USA and Universal Pictures. You’ll find a wealth of the biggest and most popular titles, as well as an expanding selection of original programming.

There are 3 levels of service—one free and two premium. The free tier shows classic shows, movies, daily news and sports. The premium tiers grant full access to all of the shows, including exclusives, originals, as well as brand new episodes of some of the most popular productions, only an hour or so after their broadcast time.

Peacock’s catalogue of TV series includes 30 Rock, Bates Motel, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Saturday Night Live. If you’re looking for a movie, you can pick from titles like American Pie, Bridesmaids, A Beautiful Mind and Mamma Mia! One thing’s for sure; you won’t be short of something great to watch.

Peacock is launching original new titles such as Dr. Death (based on the true-crime podcast), One of Us Is Lying, and Girls5Eva (a much-talked comedy produced by Tina Fey).

Wherever you are in the world, if you love your US TV, then Peacock TV should definitely be on your list of favourites.

How can I watch Peacock with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator uses a unique hub to provide a virtual location for the Peacock servers, making them believe you’re in the USA—right where you need to be to access their shows and movies.

No complicated settings or software installation required

One of the major advantages of using StreamLocator is that you don’t have to install any software. With many alternative systems, you have to download software to every device you want to use to access those foreign shows. For others, you could have to update or install new server settings or DNS profiles.

With StreamLocator, there’s nothing to manage. It works automatically with all of your Internet-enabled devices, and it’s always on, ready to get to work.

It’s compatible with your Apple iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. It works seamlessly with your Smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV systems, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, and games consoles. In fact, if it connects to the Internet via your home WiFi—StreamLocator has got you covered.

Our smart hub comes when you sign up for a StreamLocator subscription and works with all WiFi routers. It doesn’t have any impact on your network speeds or your usual online activity.

Another great advantage over other systems is that you can connect as many devices as you want. Each connection can access a different streaming service in a different country. StreamLocator takes care of each virtual location for you, providing the easiest access to all the TV you need, from all over the world.

How to watch Peacock from outside the USA

Almost all of the streaming services use geolocation software to track and pinpoint where their viewers are. If you’re not in the appropriate country to access their content, you’ll be blocked from viewing it.

VPN and Smart DNS services can help to hide your location and grant you the access you need, but they’re becoming less reliable than they once were.

If you want to watch Peacock, you’ll need a trustworthy system to get around the geolocation blocks.

How to register for Peacock from outside the USA

With StreamLocator taking care of the location issues, setting up an account with Peacock is as easy as if you were in the US. All you need is an email address to register for their free service.

If you want to watch Peacock’s additional programming, remove the adverts, or take advantage of the extras that come with the Premium tiers, then you’ll need a US credit card to make the payment.

To access Peacock Premium, set up your free account as normal and then, in the account options, find the option to upgrade to premium. Choose which tier you need and follow the instructions.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Peacock from outside the USA?

A VPN service or Smart DNS provider can help viewers get around the geolocation blockades set up by the streaming services. They both offer similar systems but using slightly different technologies. However, as providers like Peacock become more efficient at spotting how the technologies are navigating their blocks, many of the workarounds are less effective and reliable.

StreamLocator works using several different technologies. It communicates with the various providers’ servers to find out which is the best option to access their system and does so, automatically.

How to unblock Peacock

Unblocking Peacock, from anywhere in the world, is easy with StreamLocator. Our smart hub is a straightforward plug and play system that requires very little effort to get things up and running.

Once you’ve plugged it into your WiFi router (any open port is fine), you’ll need to activate your account. With that taken care of you’ll find a new option in your WiFi networks—STREAMLOCATOR. Simply switch over your required devices to this new network and let your smart hub take care of the rest.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Peacock for free?

If you only need Peacock’s free service, then that’s just what it will be. However, if you want to access either of the premium tiers, you will have to pay for those services, just as you normally would.
