Download Free Peacock TV For PC – Windows 10, Mac
Table of Contents
The NBC Peacock TV PC streaming service finally arrived, after months of a soft-launch for just Comcast customers, the rest of us now have access to the big new streaming service on the block. And that’s great news, unless your only streaming device is a Roku or Amazon Fire TV.
What is Peacock TV for PC
Peacock offers lots of shows, movies and live sports for free. But it lacks support for Roku and Amazon Fire TV, and features like user profiles and mobile downloads, meaning it’s closer to free streaming services than Netflix or Hulu.
If you sign up through Android or Android TV, you get free Peacock Premium until Oct. 15, 2020.
Peacock has gained one more supported device: the PlayStation 4. It’s already going to be on the Xbox One, and we presume that PS5 and Xbox Series X apps will be available when those consoles arrive in the fall.
In terms of app integration, Peacock TV will grace all of Apple’s hardware, and it will be “fully integrated with the Apple TV App.”
In summary, here’s the list of where Peacock is going to stream
- Android TV
- Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD
- Google Chromecast
- Comcast Xfinity X1
- Comcast Xfinity Flex
- Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
- LG Smart TVs
- Sony PlayStation 4
- Microsoft Xbox One S and Xbox One X
- Vizio SmartCast TVs
During its initial rollout Peacock is available within Comcast devices that customers already own, including X1 and Flex hardware.
Peacock TV talk shows
Unlike Netflix, HBO Max and Hulu, Peacock will have nightly talk shows, with access to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Myers.
Peacock Premium subscribers get the best end of the deal. They can watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Myers” three and a half hours early.
Peacock TV original shows
In addition to the aforementioned Brave New World, other Peacock originals include The Capture, a conspiracy thriller chock full of espionage and questionable news, starring Callum Turner (War & Peace), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), and Famke Janssen (X-Men). For laughs, there’s the UK series Intelligence, which sees David Schwimmer (Friends) as NSA agent Jerry Bernstein, who joins the cyber crime-fighting team across the pond, and it doesn’t go swimmingly. There’s also the film Psych 2: Lassie Come Home, bringing James Roday and Dule Hill back to TV.
There’s even sports content to try and fill the void of leagues on hiatus. In Deep With Ryan Lochte is an examination of the disgraced olympian trying to redeem himself. Dale Earnhardt Jr. hosts Lost Speedways, a docuseries about the iconic racing stadiums of years past.
New series Cleopatra In Space, and original shows starring Curious George and Where’s Waldo round out the kids content.
