How to Get Peacock on Chromecast

By Lore Apostol / August 21, 2021

Peacock has gained a ton of subscribers since it launched last year, and it's another great addition to the on-demand and live TV platforms market. Below we'll guide you through how to get Peacock on Chromecast.

As you can expect, it comes with thousands of hours of content that includes classic NBC shows, Peacock originals, sports, news, and more - and soon, we'll also see movies from Universal, DreamWorks, Illumination, and Focus Films studios arriving four months after their cinematic debut.

Compatibility

Peacock offers support for Chromecast 1st Generation or above, including Chromecast with Google TV.

How to Watch Peacock on Chromecast

Here's how to get Peacock on Chromecast in a few simple steps:

If you are not a customer yet, you can subscribe to Peacock on their website. Create a free account by entering a user email and creating a password. NBCU's live TV and streaming app offer 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.

Since Peacock is a geo-blocked service, you can only access its content within the US. However, there are ways to watch Peacock while traveling.

Alternate: Get Peacock on Chromecast with Google TV

Peacock is currently available on Chromecast with Google TV, so you can directly get the Peacock app on the device instead of casting. Follow the steps below.

Note: If you don't see Peacock listed as a service, go to Settings, then Accounts & Sign In. Select Your Services and make sure it's toggled On.
