Peacock is the new kid in the on-demand and Live TV platforms market, and it had grown pretty fast since its launch last year. Since everyone wants to watch content on their large-screen TV, let's see how to watch Peacock on a Smart TV.

NBCU's Peacock comes with thousands of hours of content - Classic NBC shows, Peacock originals, sports, news, and movies from Universal, DreamWorks, Illumination, and Focus Films studios arriving four months after their cinematic debut. So, of course, you'd want to see all that on a big, crisp screen TV!

Peacock offers an ad-supported Free tier and a Premium plan for $4.99 per month. The latter can be upgraded to Premium Plus for another $5/month to remove the ads altogether. There are also annual plans that you can select for a better price. You can access the limited-commercials Premium tier for no extra cost if you are an Xfinity or Cox customer.
