How to Get the Peacock App on Your Samsung TV

Ever longed to watch Peacock TV shows, movies, or live sports channels? Well, I’m excited to share that you can achieve this with your Samsung Smart TV!

Previously, the most convenient way for me as a Samsung smart TV owner to get Peacock was to use a streaming device such as a Roku player or stream from an Apple device via AirPlay 2. But that’s in the past.

Apart from watching local channels on my Samsung TV, as a Samsung Smart TV user, you can now download the Peacock app directly to your TV, eliminating the need to connect to another device.

You can utilize your Samsung TV’s Search function to easily find and search for the Peacock app, which you can then add to your existing app library.

To manually install the Peacock app on your Samsung TV, simply follow these steps:

  1. Press the Home button on your Samsung Smart TV remote control to access the menu.
  2. Navigate to the Apps area of the menu.
  3. Press the Search button to initiate a search.
  4. From the search results, select the Peacock application.
  5. Click on the “install” option.

Please note that the Peacock app is compatible only with Samsung Smart TV models introduced in 2017 and later.

How to Start Watching Peacock TV Movies and Shows

If you have the Peacock app installed on your Samsung Smart TV, you’ll have access to exclusive live channels and original films that are only available on the Peacock streaming platform.

To get started, simply select the Peacock app from your TV’s home screen.

However, before you can start enjoying the content, it’s important to set up an account and subscribe to one of the Peacock subscription tiers.

If you’ve already subscribed to the Peacock app on your Samsung TV, sign in using the account information you created during the initial subscription. If you haven’t signed up before, you’ll need to create a new Peacock account on your Samsung TV. Visit, enter your email address, and choose the appropriate subscription tier.

The Peacock Premium subscription plan is available at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, giving you complete access to all the network’s channels and content.

For those who prefer an ad-free experience, the Peacock Premium Plus plan is available at $9.99 per month, allowing you to eliminate ad interruptions.
