    Amended. The app is quite slow to load, but eventually everything appears, including my watch list. You do have to be patient to get back to a show you've been watching. There's quite a bit of good content, though, including some new shows. The "channels" section was confusing me at first; now I just ignore it and am much happier.

  • Decent service, real poor app quality Sep 30, 2020

    By Hän C.
    First off, I do love the peacock service - I appreciate the shows available and as I pay for the full subscription I’ve been enjoying the content without ads. The streaming quality has been good for me. I do agree with another reviewer that the reload time is obnoxious, if I pause the video and come back to it. Pausing and returning usually takes the video back 15 seconds which is very frustrating. Also, I’m frustrated that I can’t have the app running in the background while doing something else on my phone. Netflix lets me turn my phone off and just plays the show as audio, which allows me to listen to the show without draining my battery. This seems like a very basic user functionality that all apps should have these days, but I understand that if the app was maybe rushed to production that it’s not there yet. I would appreciate this being fixed for an update. I also wish the app had a homepage where I could save shows for later. It’s frustrating having to remember what I was interested in or having to use the search bar every single time I want to find a show. I also would like an option to hide the main page, which currently shows news and stuff like that. It should be a customizable front page or I should be able to hide the news/sports so that they’re not what I see when I first open the app. I will keep paying for this for a few months in the hopes that the app will get better.

    Great content/ good idea, however I don't believe developers are quite there yet with playback. I have an extremely stable super fast Wi-Fi connection and have yet to be able to play one movie or show all the way through without some kind of lag where I have to restart. The major issue I have had is I will be playing and the audio will start to not be in sync with the picture or it will almost skip.. a 2 hr movie will take 20 min extra to watch. Please improve. Long initial loading time also.

  • 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!!

    No customer service or contact for feedback ... but has no issue taking my money! I’m writing re: my Roku Insignia TV 1. I can’t tell what program I have selected - I know it’s a soft white cloudy hue around the box with the program title listed - - but it’s still really tough to see and my mom can’t see it at all so she just presses ok and the wrong show starts. 2.How do you get to episodes of a show without streaming the show first? I just want to open it and see the episodes. So instead I go to my watchlist and open the show from there ... 3. My watchlist is missing more than 1/2 the shows I added. Last night I fell asleep watching law and order - so I just wanted to open the episodes to see where I am (see point #2). Law and order used to be in my watchlist and now it’s gone ....a bunch of shows are gone. 4. In the HISTORY of NBC I guess there has only been 45 comedies (15 rows of 3) Why oh why is Roseanne listed on the front page of “Just For Laughs” I hated that show and still do. Is there a way to “Thumbs Down” or “stop showing me this crap show” - you make me seriously wander about the amount of content you have 5. Can I go to TV shows and click Genre? Instead of finding your cheeky name for a genre? Same with movies. Do you not offer this because the amount of content is so low? 6. Seriously - how much content do you actually have?

    Audio is awful, shows are quiet, commercials are absurdly loud. The app is also slow and the menu is awful, like really awful. The watchlist is really clumsy to use. The android app doesn't support picture in picture. The library is absolutely awful for the price, not worth it at all. Get it together guys because this is a complete disaster and I was paying for premium.

  • Decent streaming service, TERRIBLE app Sep 26, 2020

    By kevintstephens
    The streaming service itself is decent, but this review is for the app specifically (both iPad and Apple TV). For some annoying reason, the app uses its own player rather than the iOS one, which means you can’t use any of the iOS features such as Picture in Picture or AirPlay. When I have a keyboard connected, I can’t use the space bar to play or pause like I can in pretty much every other streaming app. If I pause the video and use another app and then come back, it can often take up to 15 seconds for the video to load again before I can play. My biggest complaint with the app/service is when auto playing the next episode, about 70% of the time the next episode will start somewhere in the middle and I have to manually rewind it back to the beginning. It’s a good thing I’m only re-watching a show I’ve already seen multiple times before so nothing gets spoiled for me, but if I were watching a new show and had something spoiled because of this bug, I would be very upset. All things considered, once I finish watching the show I’m currently watching, I’ll be canceling my Peacock subscription. The content available to stream does not outweigh the numerous annoyances and complaints I have with the apps.

    I love nbc and their shows. The app, however, is extremely frustrating. If anything interrupts the video (like a phone call), I have to uninstall the entire app and reinstall it. The video freezes or has error messages constantly. If my favorite shows were not held hostage to this app, I would absolutely not keep it. I hope they improve this immediately

  • Streaming is decent Sep 30, 2020

    By jbram63
    The streaming is okay. Haven’t had issues. I have issues with them imposing the app on us in order to watch the Premier League. How is it that so far we’ve HAD to stream to watch the champions of England play 2 of the top teams? The biggest games should be available on TV where the majority of people already pay to watch the EPL. Putting them on the Peacock app is pretty upsetting and likely an attempt to boost their subscriptions to justify putting more big games on the app after NBCSB Gold failed. Additionally, I can’t even use air play because it’s restricted and there’s no app for my 2019 samsung tv. Having a toddler and crawler, we keep wires hidden and out of reach. So, airplay alike is a must. But if I want to watch this on the tv, I have to bring wires out and end up spending half the time keeping the kids from grabbing the wires or pushing buttons on the laptop. Pretty big waste of money if you ask me. They pay insane amounts to win contracts to get the rights to the games but then want us to pay additional for the big matches in addition to the main channel that’s supposed to show the best games. ....It’s like if I pay for HBO but then forced to pay extra for Game of Thrones...oh, and I wouldn’t easily be able to watch it on my tv.

    Wretched. It's hard to believe a streaming app could be worse than CBS All Access, but you've managed to lower the bar. It shouldn't be so hard to return to new episodes of a show I watch every night. No preview while forwarding. Rudimentary player controls. Take a look at Netflix or Hulu to see how it's done. It looks like a streaming app designed by a cable company. I expect more from NBC.

    Looks like, overall, they've fixed the scrolling bug I previously experienced. Sometimes I still notice arbitrary "dead spots" when trying to scroll through a season (doesn't happen in any other app, so it's not the screen) but if I tap a different area it usually works. I also noticed that when I'm watching on my phone, not casting to a TV, autoplay works — it's when I'm casting the video to my TV that the autoplay function doesn't work at all. Would really appreciate that being sorted out.

  • App Works Good on iPhone, Not So Good Elsewhere Aug 19, 2020

    By Long John 1964
    I enjoy the shows I can watch on my iPhone. Great selection, and plays back anything without a hitch. However ... ... I also like to play videos on my much larger TV. Now we have a problem. My iPhone 11 Pro Max running the latest version of iOS refuses to play any videos from this app on any TV. It will still play on my iPhone, while the TV shows a freeze frame of where I started the video. The audio comes from the TV as it should, though. When I try to play a video on my TV from an older device, it doesn’t play on either screen, though I can still hear audio from the TV. It still plays on my device properly while not plugged into a TV. I have several other streaming video apps, and all work the way they’re supposed to. Peacock is the only one that doesn't. I was hoping the latest update would fix this problem. It didn’t.

    This app crashed constantly. I have tried to watch it every day this week after several attempts I can't get it to stop freezing or closing. Also you can add to a watchlist but there's no way to get to it. There are many other flaws for viewing like I dont care about what's trending I want quickly get the content I am interested in. Also you always have to browse or watch channels that repeat content. I would not pay for this when it's all jacked up with ads. I did sign up for the $5&$10 same.

    Update: Have since attempted to use the app again. The same issue persists... buffering ~every minute so the content is unwatchable. I'm disappointed. --------- There are a handful of shows/movies I'm interested in watching, with plenty of filler packed around them, but unfortunately the constant buffering (anywhere from every 30 seconds to every 2 or 3 minutes) makes it very hard to watch anything. The free shows and episodes on other network apps (ABC, CBS) are much more accessible.

  • Buffers Aug 14, 2020

    By Hotwheelsg67
    I hate when it occasionally buffers none of my other apps do this on my iPad you have to stop it and start it up again and then it goes to your commercials and then starts the program, afraid to pay for premium service because of this issue, I went away for a while thinking they would fix it, and they haven’t but they keep coming out with new content, so I thought I’d check it out again and it’s still not fixed what’s the problem who wants to pay for something if you can’t even fix it, sorry I won’t pay for something if you can’t fix the buffering problem when it goes to commercials and doesn’t want to come back, without restarting it myself it doesn’t happen constantly but when it does it’s frustrating, quit adding new content and get people excited for something you can’t take care of or maintain good service, hope you have people look into this, I should have wrote a review right from the get go however I’m assuming I’m not the only one with problems I see a lot of low stars

  • It’s ok Oct 19, 2020

    By zats2005
    I got this app to watch Rich Eisen. His show is live, but I am not available to watch until about 1/2 way through. I prefer to watch beginning to end. The live broadcast ends at 1pm, but it is not made available to replay until late evening or in some cases the next day. When I 1st began using the app I had frustrations a plenty and hoped the bugs would get worked out before The Rich Eisen Show stopped broadcasting on TV. I don’t see that anything has improved from when I 1st began using the app until now. This app seems to have a wonderful catalog of movies, sports, old tv shows and The problem is, you get about 7-10 minutes in and the buffering begins. I am then informed that I am not connected to the internet. This is while I see all WiFi bars light up. I am then informed I should try a premium membership. Each time I open the app I see so many programs to watch, but it ends in heartbreak. This streaming service looks great, but it doesn’t work. And don’t tell me it’s free and the suggest I purchase premium version.

  • Not Ready for Prime Time (but we are forced to use it) Sep 20, 2020

    By jrscassady
    I have been using the app on my iPad and Apple TV since it was released. The app freezes regularly - some of which require navigating away from the stream and back in order to rectify, others which self-correct. This is especially frustrating when watching live sports (I subscribed to Peacock Premium to have access to English Premier League streams). EDIT 9/20: I had no problems 9/19 and 9/20. I would increase to 3 stars except I saw too many people on Twitter and Discord with the same problems I had in the past - including the significant delay which Peacock emailed me was a technical issue limited to 9/14. The app excludes NBC Sports despite NBC Sports Gold being replaced by Peacock - leaving sports fans with having to check multiple locations for content. NBC should migrate all NBC Sports app contents to Peacock and allow users to log into their cable subscription in Peacock to unlock access to that content. A single NBC content app would make for a better user experience.
