Peacock is another great addition to the on-demand and live TV platforms market, and it grew pretty fast since its launch in 2020. Below we'll guide you through how to get Peacock on PlayStation.

Peacock has thousands of hours of content offering 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.

NBCU's live TV and streaming app 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.

Starting last year, Peacock started offering support for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, so you can now enjoy a new streaming app on your Sony console.

Before starting to watch anything, you need to be subscribed to Peacock. 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.

Note

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