How to get Peacock Premium for Free
Peacock is one of my favorite streaming services. A big reason is that it’s pretty inexpensive, with the Premium offering going for $5.99 per month. And Premium Plus costs you $11.99 per month.
Peacock has a ton of great shows available, including The Voice, Yellowstone, Bel-Air, and many classics like The George Lopez Show, Two and a Half Men, and many more. The service also has a slew of great live sports, including WWE, the Premier League, and Sunday Night Football, with more coming in the future.
Recently, Peacock has gotten rid of their truly free plan, so now there’s only Premium and Premium Plus available – which is quite confusing, to be honest. As mentioned, Peacock Premium is $5.99 per month, and Peacock Premium Plus is $11.99 per month. The main difference between the two is that Premium Plus is ad-free, and you can download some titles for offline viewing.
However, there are ways that you can get Peacock Premium for free. And no, this does not include signing up for a free trial. In fact, Peacock has gotten rid of their free trial offer, along with a slew of other streaming services.
How to get Peacock Premium for free
There are a few ways to get Peacock Premium for free. Some of these options are only available for a limited time – say 12 months – while others will let you keep Peacock Premium for free forever.
Xfinity Internet Subscribers
This should come as no surprise, but if you have internet through Comcast, you can get Peacock Premium for free. In order to get Peacock Premium for free, you do need to have Xfinity Internet and sign up for Comcast’s new NOW TV streaming service. NOW TV is Comcast’s latest streaming platform, which aims to replace cable. It currently has over 40 live channels, which include A&E, AMC, Discovery, and much more. There are over 20 FAST channels included, from NBC, Sky, and Xumo Play as well. The service costs just $20 per month, which is a pretty good deal for what you’re getting – and way cheaper than the cheapest cable package.
Comcast owns NBCUniversal, which runs Peacock, so it’s pretty obvious why Comcast is giving its customers Peacock Premium for free.
You can sign up for Peacock Premium using Xfinity’s website. You’ll be signing up, for NOW, TV first if you haven’t already, and then you can activate your Peacock Premium subscription via email or by logging into your account.
If you are a Diamond or Platinum Xfinity Rewards member or have Gigabit or Gigabit+ speed internet service, then you are eligible for Peacock Premium at no cost – meaning you don’t need NOW TV.
If you get internet from Spectrum or Cox, then you are also eligible for Peacock Premium for free. However, you are limited to either three months or twelve months, unfortunately.
Spectrum TV customers on any plan – except the Basic or TV Essentials tiers – are eligible for twelve months of Peacock Premium for free. Spectrum Internet customers will get it for three months.
New customers are able to sign up on Peacock’s website and activate this freebie. If you’re a current customer, you will need to cancel your current subscription and re-sign up for this offer. Peacock does have good instructions on how to switch if you have more questions.
Instacart Plus Shoppers
Finally, if you are an Instacart Plus shopper, you can also get Peacock Premium for free. This is the first streaming partnership for Instacart, and it’s a pretty good one.
Instacart Plus costs $10 per month or $100 per year. This membership does offer unlimited fast, free delivery on orders over $35. If you order a lot of groceries, then Instacart Plus is definitely worth it, and with this offer, you can get Peacock Premium (a $5.99 per month value) included.
You can sign up for Peacock Premium via Instacart’s app.
