Want to watch the latest Peacock shows and movies on a Samsung Smart TV? Luckily, downloading the app is a snap.
The Peacock app is available on Samsung smart TVs and installation is as easy as any other app. The easiest way for a Samsung Smart TV user to access Peacock was to use a streaming device such as a Roku player or to use AirPlay 2 to stream from an Apple device.
It sometimes takes a while for streaming services to get their app across all platforms. For some time now, Samsung smart TVs have been conspicuously absent from the Peacock list.
The NBCUniversal streaming service, called Peacock, made its debut in July 2020. Customers have three subscription levels to choose from, starting with a free option with ads offering access to limited programming.
There is also Peacock Premium for $ 4.99 per month and Premium Plus for $ 9.99 per month. Other streaming services available on Samsung smart TVs include Disney +, HBO Max, and Amazon Prime. Thanks to Samsung TV Plus, users also have the option to watch live and on-demand TV for free.
Before watching Peacock on Samsung Smart TV, users must have a Peacock account. This can be created by visiting PeacockTV.com, entering an email address, then selecting the appropriate subscription level for them.
How to get Peacock on Samsung Smart TV?
To download the app on a Samsung Smart TV:
- Just follow these steps: Go to “Apps” on the home screen, then select the “Search” icon.
- Then all you have to do is search for “Peacock” and click on the “Install” button on the Peacock app page.
- Once the app is downloaded, the user will find Peacock on the home screen.
- They need to log into their Peacock account when they first launch the app before they can start streaming. However, once you log in, the setup process completes.
- The only thing users need to be aware of is the TV model they are using.
The Peacock app is only been officially supported on Samsung Smart TVs since 2017. If anyone has a Samsung Smart TV from before 2017, Peacock will not work.
What You Can Watch On Peacock?
Peacock offers access to popular NBC shows such as The Office of Parks and Recreation as well as Downton Abbey and Vikings.
The streaming service also features its original programming, such as Rutherford Falls, a Saved By the Bell reboot, and a MacGruber TV show based on the classic SNL sketch. In addition to TV shows, Peacock users can also watch various movies.
With Peacock now widely available on virtually every smart TV platform, the service is in the best position to win subscribers. In 2020, Peacock reported just 33 million signups and lost $914 million in revenue. Things haven’t improved much in 2021, with NBCUniversal only confirming 54 million subscribers in the second quarter of this year.
Peacock’s availability on Samsung smart TVs probably won’t be the only reason for its success, but it’s an important step forward in ensuring that as many people as possible can get the app.
