What is Peacock TV? This is a brand new video-on-demand streaming service and app for watching movies and TV shows online. The Peacock app is brought to you by NBCUniversal.
Peacock takes a tiered approach to subscription-based content. Watch original NBC programs, videos, and sports events for free on your jailbroken Firestick 4K, Fire TV Stick, and Fire Cube with their first tier. The Peacock app also works great on almost any streaming device, including smartphones and tablets.
This MTM article provides a step-by-step guide to installing the Peacock TV app on your streaming device. Peacock is compatible with Android devices, Firestick/Fire TV, Chromecast, iPhone/iPad, Apple TV, Xbox One, Xfinity Flex 4k, Vizio Smartcast, and LG Smart TVs.
Find a variety of movies, binge-worthy TV shows, sports, and news on Peacock for free. You can also upgrade to Peacock Premium to unlock everything this streaming app has to offer with a small monthly payment ($4.99/mo at this time). This includes live Premier League football matches! Peacock Premium Plus is an additional charge that gets rid of ads on most programming.
How to Register for free Peacock TV
You will need to register for Peacock TV prior to watching one of the thousands of shows available. There are different subscription tiers available; this includes a free version.
While you can sign up right in the app, follow the simple steps below to sign up for a free account (No credit card is required) before installing Peacock TV if you want. An email and password are all that’s necessary to sign up with the service in either the app or on their site.
- On the Peacock website, click Start Watching Now.
- Go to the Create an account page and fill out the required information. Then, click Create Account.
- You’ll be redirected to a Welcome to Peacock page. Click Start Watching to get started.
That’s all it takes. Start streaming content with Peacock TV for free. You can stream movies, TV shows, and live TV channels on Peacock TV… even with their free account tier.
Steps to Install Peacock TV App on Firestick
You must side-load the Peacock TV app onto your Android streaming device, as it’s not found in the Amazon App Store. NBCUniversal and Amazon are currently working out how to split the Peacock app’s ad revenue. Remember Amazon and Google “negotiations” concerning the YouTube Firestick app? With corporate greed controlling the discussion once more, the Peacock app may not be included in the app store for some time to come.
Learn how to sideload the APK for Peacock TV on your Firestick or any Android TV box by following along below.
Before Installing Peacock TV APK
If you haven’t already done so, enable apps from unknown sources in settings on your Amazon Firestick or any other Android streaming device. Neither Firestick nor other Android devices allow you to install the Peacock TV APK unless you enable apps from unknown sources first.
The above linked step-by-step guide to enabling unknown sources explains other Firestick “security” settings you may wish to shift. Notable settings allow Amazon to track your activities and record all your data and are turned ON by default.
Install Downloader App to Download PeacockTV APK
Downloader App is a really handy tool for side-loading apps not found in Google Play and the Amazon app store. In my humble opinion, Downloader is the second most indispensable app you need to install on any jailbroken Firestick. Most experienced cord cutters know that a VPN is the first app you should install to remain anonymous while gaining full access to censored content.
It's highly recommended to hide your identity, location, and online activities with a secure VPN.
If wishing to cut the cord on high cable costs, become familiar with Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) services. IPTV offers continuous streaming OTA (over-the-air) live TV channels on the internet.
Download a side-loading tool like Downloader or ES File Explorer and get all the best TV and movie apps installed on your Firestick.
Easily find the free Downloader app in the authorized Amazon App and Google Play stores. Then, install Downloader on your Android or FireOS streaming device. Downloader works on a Firestick 4K, Fire TV Stick, Fire Cube, Android TV Box, NVIDIA SHIELD, Mi Box, or any other Android TV box or streaming device.
Next, install the Peacock TV APK file by following the simple prompts below. These guide the very quick download and installation process.
