  • Constant changes in quality and content Aug 17, 2020

    By 8432789
    I am a day 1 user, waited months for this app at first never had any issues in my Apple TV or iPhone but now it’s constant errors. Most recent is just solid black screen with an outline of the channel schedule instead of puss in boots error screen occasionally. They also took away the office channel quietly a couple of days ago. Changed the reality tv “in it to win it” channel (that had huge variety in programming) into deal or no deal for over a week non stop 24/7. Just rename the channel already after nearly 250 episodes straight it’s officially the deal or no deal channel! I assumed okay maybe after they play each episode in the series I will get to see something new, sadly they just stared over from episode 1 again. Same episodes of kitchen nightmares (season 1) have been playing non stop for 5 days when it’s KN evening time block and the profit season 1. This didn’t used to be the case! There would be a mix of several seasons. I was thinking about subscribing but these are pretty major and sudden changes that make no sense. They were also what I used the app for 99% of the time. Went from being my #1 app to deleting and resubscribing to CBS all access who instead of taking away content added over 200 season of different shows last week.

    It could use some adult language. I love this show because of the dry humor. I used to work in retail so it brings back irritating memories n makes me laugh. But, it also puts my emotions into it by because of how frustrated I get on some the things I've experienced.

  • Add Picture in Picture, audio descriptions & autoplay cancel. Jan 27, 2021

    By Crichelle
    Add Picture in Picture, audio descriptions & autoplay cancel. I really want to love this app. I even paid for the commercial free version, because I love NBC so much. The content is great. Unfortunately, this app is lacking in several accessibility features. Additionally, it needs different user profiles, so that I can have a watchlist that I don’t share with the rest of my family. It will not allow me to do picture in picture, which means my shows are interrupted each time I open a message to reply. I am very disappointed that there are not audio descriptions available for most shows. People with low vision or blindness, this limits access to some great television. Finally, I have tried to work out how to cancel autoplay as a default, but I can’t seem to do it. If I do not physically tap the screen before an episode ends, the app will automatically play the next episode. This is especially frustrating if I fall asleep watching a show, only to wake up with a whole season over. Again, I really do want to love this app. Every other streaming service I have allows for picture in picture, as well as autoplay camel, and most have audio descriptions. I hope peacock gets these features soon!

    I would be far happier with the app if they removed the news feed or let me disable it. I will probably cancel my subscription soon if they don't implement a way to toggle it off. I don't know why they would have it in the first place, it shouldn't be a bunch of politics.

    Needs Work. Streams ok but hard to tell what you have selected on Google TV. Most of the time so you end up going back and forth between menus. Just needs something to make the current title stand out more when using a remote.
  • Some problems make it not worth it Feb 8, 2021

    Can’t watch at home except for on my tiny phone screen because the idiots who run this thing decided to block me from using an hdmi. Not worth paying for if I can’t even watch it on a proper tv.

    There is minimal app adjustment settings. You cannot continue playback if you're casting to a chromecast. You also cannot cast to a firestick. On the other hand, if you play something on your phone, it will continue playback forever. Not a big fan of Peacock other than the fact they offer the Office. I'd suggest buying the DVD set instead of using Peacock. EDIT: Dropped to 1 star from a 2 star because of constant casting issues. I hope the app gets better.

  • It buffers...a lot, poor support Jan 1, 2021

    By Kubu1218
    1/1/21 UPDATE: I was contacted by product support after posting my original review. I responded on 12/20 providing additional information about the issue & my device. To date, I have yet to receive a response despite 2 follow up emails. The issue persists, EXCESSIVE buffering. For the lack of Support communication, I’ve dropped my rating to a 2. Excessive buffering. Apparently, this is not a true “streaming” service - bits of content are downloaded in “packets” and a slow or full connection may cause buffering between packets. That being said, I experience frequent buffering despite a fast internet connection when no other devices are in use (and a single phone used at the same time shouldn’t cause this amount of buffering). It seems to be most common after watching for some time - Peacock doesn’t appear to be a fan of binging. The only remedies offered on the Peacock website (they’re clearly aware of the issue) is to check your Internet speed & stop using (or put in airplane mode) all other devices. The service does also lack some features of other actual streaming services (as described in other comments). Despite all this, I paid for the premium annual service because it’s the cheapest of the only 2 options I’ve found to get ALL Bravo content (lower tier Peacock doesn’t have full content & Hulu+Live TV is cost prohibitive) which is the only thing I was missing in life. I can only hope the service is improved over time.

    I have sooooo many issues with the usability of this App (mobile and Smart TV) I don't know where to start. I watched Premiership Rugby on NBCSN but am now forced to try to watch via Peacock. It's so user unfriendly and feels like it was put together in 20 minutes. Live sport is laggy, layout is poor, shows hard to find, too many ads (which are twice the volume of shows), takes too long to open, loses connection all the time - this is all on internet speeds of 232Mbps download, 220Mbps upload.

  • Best of any streaming services Jan 11, 2021

    By C'est moi, cherie
    I love this app — I watch something from it every day. There are an astounding number of shows available at no recurring cost to me (I wait through 45 seconds of ads during a show’s normal commercial break). Other streaming services (cough cough Disney, CBS, etc. cough cough) have nearly everything trapped behind a paywall, and honestly I can’t afford 6 dollars here, 5 dollars there, every single month, to four or five streaming services. Frankly I do not want to sign up not only due to budget but from principle: when the writing hit the wall with companies pulling shows from Netflix to move them to their own premium streaming services, I said then that I wouldn’t sign up for multiple premium services because I saw it as the companies’ greed. And I don’t have to with Peacock, because they make so much available while being so reasonable with their consumers. So because of their model, this is one streaming service where I actually would sign up for premium just to support them.

  • THE WORST APP EVER Nov 11, 2020

    By Kear...the eon
    Once I was sitting on my couch and Aisa this app on the App Store so I bought it of course I had to sign in it took me so long I could not find a password and it kept saying this you Artie use this password something went wrong try again later and I can’t do it so I finally got in to the app and I’ll look for Harry Potter because it’s my favorite movie and I found it so watch it 1000 times and then I decided to go to temple run and I came back to the app two minutes later and it was gone of my favorite movies we’re gone so I delete the app and signed in again I looked it was gone so it was not good at all so I’m writing this review and just so you know Peacock is my least favorite app and it is horrible horrible horrible horrible and half of it and half of the moviesLike they make you get premium for it and it’s a horrible app!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I like the content , but the steaming is not good. Jul 19, 2020

    By Bluegrass bandita
    My streaming has been pretty terrible with this app for a couple of different reasons at different times. Things will start good, I’m able to cast, the show or movie starts playing, but within about 10 minutes or so, the sound and the subtitles are out of sync with what’s going on. It’s truly annoying because I have hearing issues anyway and I sometimes try to read lips and I rely on things syncing up. The second issue is that some programs just will not cast with my Chromecast device. It say that it’s casting, but then reverts to my I-phone or I-pad. I really like the large variety of programs and channels that you offer. I truly hope that you are able to get these glitches worked out in the very near future.

  • Good for a free app Oct 23, 2020

    By BE THANKFUL FOR A FREE APP
    It’s free guys there are some bugs but overall haven’t had an issues other than in my airpods the audios bad for commercials but what do I care there commercials. I enjoy the streaming and its quality it’s able to keep up and not pixel out like many other streaming apps there might be bugs but it’s free and has a lot of shows I cannot get on other apps for free overall love the app and love the way it’s designed very well done Also with the Apple TV that’s a problem that happens with many other apps so it’s not surprising that the 4.99 movies your getting for free are not working Thank you for making the app it’s amazing and works wonderfully really do enjoy it

  • Great App and lots of Content Aug 3, 2020

    By rick6886
    I live in Alaska and have had no issues with the app. I run it through my Apple TV box and there have been zero glitches. I pay the $9.99/month which isn’t a big deal, most people spend more than that in 2 days getting Starbucks every morning. The $9.99 is worth it to unlock everything, the only ads I have seen are 15 second promos before a show or program begins. I have watched multiple shows and programs and there have been no ads once the show starts. They have the complete catalogue of many shows, I love Law and Order, every episode of SVU and Criminal Intent is on there, the last 8 seasons of the original Law and Order is on there as well. In terms of original content “The Capture” is must see TV, one of the most original shows out there. There are several other original content shows as well that I well check out. My minor complaint is that it is a bit user unfriendly to navigate at times. But they can clean that up. This is well worth the $9.99/month, my number one streaming app right now.

  • LOVE the content, but problems with playback Sep 14, 2020

    By RoMoBenCeasDee
    Go team 🌈Peacock 🦚 for providing AWESOME content — all my favorite Bravo shows, every season, even every season of Bethany’s spin offs! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 I also love the variety of Indie movies with great celebs and directors! 🥳🥳🥳 Now — the problem with playback. When I watch Peacock on my TV through my Xfinity connected set top/DVR cable box, everything works fine. No problems with the time tracking, (ie if you are 30 mins into watching the program, it accurately displays the progress). BUT — while watching the same show or movie on my iPad or iPhone (not necessarily picking up where I left off on one device and watching it on another — that works great and is an awesome feature!), I can be 30 mins into a show, yet the progress bar is stuck on the time from the last commercial break. Then if I try to rewind, it makes me watch the entire commercial break AGAIN. It has happened where I wind up being forced to watch more commercial time than actual content time in one 30 minute show!! Also, sometimes I will get all the way to the end of a program, and it won’t auto start the next episode. Any progression feature (rewind, FF, etc) tapped will trigger ANOTHER commercial break!! Lastly, can’t you remove commercials altogether for premium subscribers? Hopefully this progression issue gets fixed QUICKLY 🙏🏼🙏🏼! It’s REALLY ANNOYING to have to sit through so many commercials every time you rewind!!

    I reboot my phone once a week and then check out which apps are left running and how many resources they consume. Although I only use it sparingly, this app reportedly consumes around 40% of battery capacity. That seems way too high. Has anyone else experienced similar results after installing? Can this be readjusted by changing a setting? I'd like to keep using this app, but not if there's no way to keep it from being such a power hog.

  • Needs work Jan 7, 2021

    By B_Papz
    This can easily head to the top of the streaming game if they squish little quality of life bugs. Channels are a great idea, and I love it more than I thought it would. The “comedy” channel needs actual episodes though, not a series of 3 minute clips from various series. I want this channel with full episodes of The Office, Parks and Recs, 30 Rock, etc. I’ve had to connect my Xfinity account at least 3 different times. For some reason it disconnects me from my account and boots me back down to a “free account”. Very frustrating when I am trying to watch later seasons of The Office (on either my phone, web browser or Roku), and I have to find a computer to reattach my Xfinity account. A “Skip Intro” button would be really helpful so I don’t have to hear the same theme songs over and over. I don’t know if this is a bug or on purpose, but it is annoying having to always re-sign in to start watching. I am sometimes booted out in the middle of watching, and have to wait a while before I am able to log back in. This is especially annoying when I am watching channels, where I am unable to rewind. Again, the app has great potential. These small things need to be fixed for it to rise to the top of the streaming game.

  • Work in Progress Jul 22, 2020

    By Ang57mac
    After watching a complete movie a clip from another movie began to play in the background and would not stop. I could not not play another video until I signed out of the app, deleted it and then reinstalled it. All this on the only device I could stream to my TV on: Apple TV 4K. There is not enough content not found on other services to endure this for. I will cancel after 7 day free trail. I want to amend my previous review. A few bugs still remain, but most have cleared up. Full screen for newer movies and shows on Apple TV 4K. Auto play. Occasional loading issues but backing out and going back in works fine. Customer support answers emails very quickly. Very few commercials (less than 1 minute at beginning). I will probably be a regular streamer.

  • It’s nice that it’s free Jan 23, 2021

    By theGrendel13
    Peacock has some mediocre shows and movies on its platform with only a few hits. Now that Comcast has acquired the Office, Parks and Rec, and few others, it makes the app worth downloading. Some of the downsides are that when opening the app, it always begins with the trending section which isn’t tailored to the users likes and dislikes. It displays only what Comcast deems to be important and can be biased towards mainstream media. Also, when watching and finishing an episode of a tv show, it doesn’t automatically play the next episode of the show you are currently watching. So you have to re-enter the app, which opens with the trending screen again, therefore you accidentally click what’s first on the trending page and lose your place in the show. It’s a tad irritating. It would be nice if Comcast would just allow you to continue to watch episodes of the same show and only stop it after an amount of time, similar to Netflix. If they fixed these minor bugs, I think the app would be a lot more streamlined and better quality.

    The app doesn't measure up to what is standard and expected of technology in 2021. Lagging and jumpy video after pausing. Slow to startup. Response time between selections from remote and action displayed takes seconds. I don't know why they bothered since they already have an NBC app. And it's strange when some of their content is also being advertised on other streaming apps, so what's the insentive. Considering price (for premium), app quality, and content this just doesn't measure up.

  • Rather clunky app Dec 18, 2020

    By St. Bozman
    I am late getting the app. But after having it for about 4 months I am surprised by how poorly the app is designed and works. Take searches, very slow, and doesn’t automatically load suggestions as you type. Also, It is the slowest app on my iPad to open and load, I almost think it crashed with just those 6 dots floating. But then the app loads, only to take a long time to switch to another screen, like when browse is selected or opening settings. One would expect a better user interface and faster app coming out of an entertainment/tech company. Feels like the app isn’t a priority. Would be nice if it allowed for multiple “users” like spouse and kids as we like different shows. Lastly, they should re-think commercials. I’m not against commercials and like them if it means affordable subscriptions. But the commercials are too long. It’s not the good old days of network tv. They should redesign how commercials work for the modern age. Right now I just look at my phone during commercials. So, my conclusion is that it’s an app to go to when there is a show you want to watch, ie: Yellowstone, but not an app you GO TO to find something to watch. Good luck. You’re behind the eight ball and other apps are doing this a lot better.

    App works well on my 3-year-old smartphone. But both the app and website suddenly stopped working on my brand new Chromebook. They were working 2 days ago! Now I get error messages every time I try to watch either one. And the website *never* worked on my new-ish Windows laptop. I don't understand this inconsistency. I prefer not to stream videos on my phone unless it's the only option I have in a given moment. I would much rather have this app (or even the website) working on my other devices!

  • Clunky, slow app. Not gonna pay just for the Office. Feb 9, 2021

    By CTCVA
    I love The Office. And Parks & Rec. But there are just way too many steaming services now and paying for all of them to watch one or two shows is just ridiculous. So I’m not paying for this one. The free content on Peacock is abundant, but it’s mostly shows that no one wants to watch or that you can watch for free on the Hallmark Channel or wherever they now show Murder She Wrote. Not exactly cutting edge programming. If this was an excellent app, I might have been interested. But it is clunky to operate, not very intuitive, and slow. So. Slow. It can take 5+ minutes to search for, find, and start playing a show. All while I’m watching those little rainbow dots go in circles. And the app freezes and crashes a lot. Not usually during a show, but definitely a lot while navigating the app and searching. We have super fast internet (more than a gig in speed to our house) and have no problem getting Netflix or Prime to load fast. Even CBS All Access is faster. Personally, I hope we will soon see consolidation in this space so we can see our favorite shows without having to subscribe to a dozen different services. And as those apps compete against each other, Peacock will not be a winner. NBC, you gave it a try. Now I hope you will license your best shows to Netflix and let us watch while you earn royalties for doing nothing.

  • I wish I could give this app less than 1 star Nov 8, 2020

    This app is a complete cash grab. They decided to split up Premier League coverage between Peacock and NBCSN. So now you need two different subscriptions to watch games. To make it worse, you can’t stream from your iPad or iPhone to your television. It’s just completely baffling to me why they’re making it harder to watch these games. I remember being so pleased with NBCSN’s coverage of the premier league when they first started a few years ago. Now, I can’t wait for another network to pick up the deal. The constant division of all these apps you need just to watch your games/shows is exhausting for the consumer. I’m sure in a few years NBC will come out with yet another app requiring another monthly subscription. “Download Peacock 1 to watch the first half of this soccer game, and make sure to download Peacock 2 to watch the second half!!! Each one is only $7.99/month!!! Post match coverage will be on NBCSN Gold, so make sure you’re subscribed to that as well, which is on top of your subscription to NBC Sports!” Meanwhile NBC is wondering why people pirate everything online. I know I’m just a lowly consumer, but I think if you make it easier to watch what we want, that’s how you gain customer loyalty. NBC is doing the opposite of this. Thanks NBC. Very cool.
