  • 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.

  • Excellent Content, Easy to Use Jul 15, 2020

    By vdrake1457383
    Peacock has a lot of great features and excellent content. Any cord cutter will find value in this app, and loading it into your Apple TV. The channel line up feature is a great way to watch the news or your favorites when you don’t know what to actually play on demand. Other users have pointed out the poor layout of the app, and I do agree that is the improvement point required for a four star review. The endless scroll of the listed channels is brutal. The notation of the feather for premium content is a good way to show users what other great is available without shoving it down their throats or tricking them. Streaming platforms are tough and I thought Peacock would not have a successful launch. Looking forward to other reviews. I’m a fan.

  • Needs work Jul 16, 2020

    By jjsledge
    Biggest issue I have is that your watchlist is a part of the browse tab. It’s nearly impossible to find. The watchlist should have its own tab. It needs to be quickly accessible instead of having to dig through other content. Other big issue is the paywall. For $4.99, you unlock nearly everything but have to deal with commercials. For $9.99, you get some extras but there are still commercials on some things (which they claim are required). Kinda dumb. But there is a 1 week trial for free. Other than that, it’s ok. You get 1 free episode of their original content (rest are behind the paywall). Feel like they should do 2-3 free to make people more interested in potentially subscribing. Showtime content is also behind the paywall.

    Would be higher, but it is soooooo slow!! I lose interest in whatever I was searching for and it's still not done loading after a minute. I have gast internet and no problems with other services, so I know its Peacock. Does it even when I am on my Cox box since I can connect through there. They need to fix the issue if they want to be competitive with other services.

  • 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.

    The content is great. That gets a 4. Another good thing is the amount and length of commercial breaks isn't bad. The app's performance is BAD. It won't let me scroll beyond whatever fits on the screen. I found no way to personalize it, to make a list of favorites, so if there's a TV series I watch over a week or two, I have go looking for it every time. Also I haven't found a way for it to automatically continue from one episode to the next. I hope they add a feature to save my favorites!

  • What is this, the year 2000? Aug 3, 2020

    By Awfulllllll!!!!!!!!
    This app is the absolute WORST app I have dealt with in 20 years. Whoever the hell designed this app needs to be fired and seriously consider a career change. Unless you have a very specific device to stream this service on, GOOD LUCK. First, getting it to play on our tv was like attempting brain surgery as a GED drop-out. Second, the content struggles to play worse than a no-armed wrestler. Third, if the app fails to load after commercials it just reverts back to the previous stopping point. This happened 3 straight times before we just gave up. That’s when I started searching for and easily finding reviews saying the exact same things over and over and over. A show that should have taken an hour to watch took over an hour and 45 min to finish. I’d rather buy every single show and movie on this app (from another service) rather than attempt to watch them on Peacock FOR FREE. Anyone considering Peacock, RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN. If somehow this review makes it to anybody in the tv/movie industry, pull your content from this app before people start turning their crosshairs on you! Take this thing out back and put a bullet in it, put us ALL out of our misery. HORRIBLE!!!!

    Phone screen sharing to TV is disabled. Why force people to watch only on a small screen device? Shows play at a very low volume. Even when turned all the way up it is not loud enough. Volume on commercials is okay. Frequent buffering. Good start on the content, but functionality doesn't measure up to other streaming apps. It is almost as if NBC doesn't really want people to use the app.

    Very glitchy. Isn't able to keep the movie picture running (black screen with audio only). The streaming app world is not new in the slightest and the fact that the developers of this app can't find a way to have a movie stream on an android is annoying. Also, no one wants to just listen to a movie on their phone or tablet, you should have the ability to downsize the screen and access a different app at the same time.

    Lots of glitches, freezing up and no support for fire tv or roku. To make matters worse when I connect my phone to the TV through a hdmi cable to actually be able to watch stuff on my TV I get an error message about an external display. At least HBO max will allow me that much. How are we supposed to care about all these new streaming services when they don't care enough to make them watchable on 70 percent of devices.

  • So Far So Good Jul 31, 2020

    By MasterPoetKK
    I got this to after seeing an ad on FB about a specific movie (Psych 2: Lassie Come Home) which is a continuation of a franchise, but this sequel was exclusive to Peacock. Was not disappointed! Great movie, and same lovable cast! Was able to view it for free and without problems. I browsed through some of their other content and it looks like they have some good stuff/ fan favorites. I don’t watch too much TV anymore, but I really might keep this. Can’t believe there’s an option to stream good shows like this for free! Thanks Peacock! Love it!

    I've been using this for a bit now. My only major complaint would be that there is no way to quickly view my list or resume/continue the show I was watching. I have to search for Psych every time I want to watch it. Really should have a "My List" and a "Recently Viewed" section towards the top of the browse tab. I also wish you'd enable picture-in-picture, but I'm guessing their are legal issues involved in doing that.

  • The next BIG streaming giant 👏🏾 Aug 4, 2020

    By Jamaal Rainey
    I use the free option and I love the selection of shows and films they have. They have a few shows I’ve wanted to binge that I couldn’t find anywhere else. The only problem I’ve had is that some time the show doesn’t pick up after a commercial. I would have to go out and start the episode again. The app also has trouble loading on my AppleTV. Those are minor problems I know they can fix since the app is so new. The commercials would usually bother me but they aren’t excessive and they mix it up like real tv. I’m a satisfied user. If they can fix those minor things it’d be perfect.

    The app is off to a decent start but it needs work. There are two main problems. The first is that there is serious audio drift that gets progressively worse the longer a show runs. The second is less of a problem but there needs to be a tab for watchlist shows. Video quality is excellent and I haven't seen any stutter problems. Edit--the app won't work with a 1st generation Chromecast. It sees the unit on the network but freezes when connecting. It works fine with newer Chromecasts.

  • Great content limit to view Jul 17, 2020

    By dmerner
    As others have stated before the content is great availability is lacking now. I was super excited for Psych the movie two. I downloaded app on iPad (iPad Air 3rd generation) and was getting ready to stream on my new generation chromecast. I set everything up and hit play....the commercials streamed and me and my wife sat back ready to enjoy....about two minutes left tv went blank except audio. I guess streaming on chromecast blocked in beginning or something. To make sure it wasn’t my chromecast I tested with hbo max and Netflix and absolutely no problems. Hopefully this will be fixed to enjoy peacock to its fullest

  • Definitely Needs UI Work Jul 26, 2020

    By EvenStephen2000
    The labor involved in fast-forwarding or rewinding is ridiculous. Every other app I’ve used on Apple TV has a normal sensitivity and seems to work well with Apple TV’s software, however this is terrible. If you just want to go back 10, 20, or 30 seconds, good luck. I don’t know who thought this was a cool design, but it’s so goofy and not user-friendly. Please trash this cumbersome system and use what everybody else is using that works just fine and isn’t frustrating. It’s an actual deterrent to using the service. I know I won’t sign up and pay until it’s more user-friendly.

  • Works well, but needs more Jul 21, 2020

    By Michael36743
    The app works well and does what it needs to. I love the free tier. The functionality of the app could use a little more work though. Taking a cue from Netflix, I would love to see this app allow the user to remove movies/shows from the continue watching list so that shows I’ve just started don’t remain if I decide I don’t want to continue them. This is just one small example of the lack of user experience oriented features that this app currently exhibits. Hopefully in a few weeks or months they’ll add more features to enhance our viewing experience.

  • 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.

    When on Chromecast the lag time between video and audio makes anything hard to watch. Have to pause and rewind to try to get the dialogue to synch up with the actors lips. And even then, it doesn’t last long and it gets out of synch again. The app is not intuitively designed. Doesn’t automatically play next episode when on Chromecast. “Continue watching” doesn’t allow you to open the series page so you have to scroll down to find it in whatever category they’ve put it in. When you start the app, it opens to a screen I don’t care about. Doesn’t have capability to create multiple profiles. They need to do whatever they need to to get it on the Firestick. Otherwise it will remain a 2nd tier. streaming service.

  • Service needs work Jul 18, 2020

    By €¥•£>|
    Downloaded Peacock and was excited to have new content to watch. I don’t watch on my small phone screen (2x5 screen or 60” screen... hmmmm), I have my TV set up to mirror my phone through an HDMI cord (just easier in my situation). So I’m ready to watch, plug in my phone and it asks if want to watch through Apple TV. I don’t have or want to subscribe to Apple TV so I said no. I then get a quick message informing me that it won’t now play through my TV and that apparently was that. The ad played on my TV, but not the show. Online help is a joke; I couldn’t get back to anywhere I could say “fine, I’ll finally submit and go through Apple TV” and in retrospect I’m glad I didn’t since it looks I still wouldn’t have been able to mirror. But even so, why should I subscribe to another service to watch a service? Hey Peacock- Netflix and Prime let you mirror. Looks like I’ll just stick with them.

    Not watchable on Chromecast. If it successfully "pairs" ("Ready to cast") with the Chromecast (80% success rate), the audio is out of sync (ironically works fine in the manadatory ads) 90% of the attempts I made. And while trying to fix the audio issue, choosing "Stop Casting" in the app does nothing, so I closed the app and reopened it, then given the option to "Disconnect" (from the Chromecast). I got the audio to sync exactly once until the end of that movie, then never again.

  • Clunky interface Aug 8, 2020

    By Crono Mk I
    This is the first app I’ve used on tvOS that does NOT use the native interface, making it nearly impossible to skip ahead or backwards in small increments (10 seconds is the normal skip amount). Instead I’m forced to drag the incredibly sensitive slider (with no preview thumbnail, by the way) and hope it lands where I want it to. I imagine this non-native interface is also the reason why the subtitles have not been placed at the bottom of the screen always. Instead, they are up 3/4 of the screen half the time, where they are guaranteed to block the face of any actor standing on their mark. Also it’s very hard to browse for a show unless you know exactly what you’re looking for, and in that case the search bar is the way to go. Peacock TV does not have so many shows and movies that they can’t offer the option to list the content alphabetically on a tab.
