How to Get Peacock on LG Smart TV

By Lore Apostol / August 20, 2021

Since it's a new live TV and on-demand streaming app, Peacock is a perfect addition to your media devices, such as smart TVs, consoles, and others. Below we'll guide you through how to get Peacock on LG Smart TV.

After its launch in 2020, it grew fast, and that was expected considering 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.

Before starting to watch anything, you need to have a Peacock account. So 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 Peacock offers an ad-supported Free tier and a Premium plan for $4.99 per month that can be upgraded to Premium Plus for another $5/month. There are also annual plans that you can turn to for a better price.

Note that you can access the limited-commercials Premium tier for no extra cost if you are an Xfinity or Cox customer.

Keep in mind that Peacock is a geo-blocked service, so you can only access its content within the US.
