Peacock is NBC’s streaming service that competes with Hulu, Disney+, Apple TV+, Netflix, and more. Peacock includes a variety of on-demand and live content from TV shows to movies, sports to news.
There are three different tiers of the service with a totally free, ad-supported option that will certainly entice many to try out Peacock. And if you’re already an Xfinity or Cox subscriber you can get the premium plan for free.
The first time you watch Peacock on an Apple device you’ll get a prompt to ask if you’d like the Apple TV app to connect with the service. While you can browse Peacock through the Apple TV app, like Disney+ it looks like playing the content takes you to the Peacock app, though.
As you’d guess, there’s a little catch if you watch the free Peacock plan: It doesn’t allow access to all of the streaming service’s on-demand and live content. But it does offer a nice amount of content (including both on-demand and live) at no cost.
Content that’s only available with a Premium or Premium Plus will be marked with a purple peacock feather in the top left-hand corner of thumbnails.

If you make the upgrade to one of the paid premium Peacock plans and want to downgrade back to the free plan:
Note that your plan will switch after the current billing cycle ends. For details on how to totally delete your Peacock account after canceling a paid plan, follow along with NBC’s support article here.
