Peacock TV is available now in the US or anywhere with a VPN. Its the latest big new streaming service of 2020. Far beyond the NBC app found on smartphones and tablets now, Peacock offers video on demand in the same vein as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, but with a focus on content from the NBC network.
The big difference, though, is that Peacock has a free tier featuring over 13,000 hours of content, alongside more traditional paid tiers that unlock a lot more to watch. And having sampled the free tier, it looks pretty impressive so far, considering that signing up to Peacock TV is extremely easy.
Peacock’s content is very NBC heavy, with the likes of Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock and Battlestar Galactica available to stream now on the free tier, while classics like Frasier and Cheers are only available in full on Peacock’s premium plan. Original shows include Brave New World and David Schwimmer comedy Intelligence, with the NBC series AP Bio moving to Peacock later this year, too. A bunch of movies are available to stream at launch, as well, including the first three Jurassic Park films.

Peacock TV are actively blocking VPN servers they know about so you need to use one that is not on their blacklist. I have just confirmed the following 2 servers from IPvanish and Nord are working (at the time of this post).
1️⃣ – IPVanish – LA server LAX-c33 (ensure you are connecting over UDP with scramble mode enabled)Show less
2️⃣ – NordVPN USA server #5215 (just search inside Nord for 5215 and connect to it)
