Want to watch all the latest shows and movies from Peacock on a Samsung smart TV? Thankfully, downloading the app is a piece of cake.
The Peacock app is readily available on Samsung smart TVs, and installing it is as easy as any other application. Previously, the easiest way for a Samsung smart TV user to access Peacock was to use a streaming device like a Roku player, or by using AirPlay 2 to stream from an Apple device. It sometimes takes streaming services a while to bring their app to every platform. For some time, Samsung smart TVs were noticeably absent from the Peacock list.
Peacock is the streaming service offered by NBCUniversal and was first launched in July 2020. Customers have three subscription tiers to choose from, starting with a free option with ads that offers access to limited programming. There’s also Peacock Premium for $4.99 per month and Premium Plus for $9.99 per month. Other streaming services available on Samsung smart TVs include Disney+, HBO Max and Amazon Prime. Users also have the option of watching live and on-demand TV for free, thanks to Samsung TV Plus.
Before watching Peacock on a Samsung smart TV, users will need to have a Peacock account. This can be created by visiting PeacockTV.com, entering an email address, and then choosing the right subscription tier for them. To download the app on a Samsung smart TV, simply do the following: From the home screen, navigate to ‘Apps’ and then select the ‘Search’ icon. Then it’s just a matter of performing a search for ‘Peacock’ and clicking on the ‘Install’ button on the Peacock app page. Once the app is downloaded, the user will find Peacock listed on the home screen. They’ll have to sign in to their Peacock account when first launching the app before they can start streaming. Once logged in, however, that’s where the setup process ends. The only thing users really need to keep in mind is the model of TV they’re using. The Peacock app is only officially supported on Samsung smart TVs from 2017 or later. If someone has a Samsung smart TV from before 2017, Peacock isn’t going to work.
What You Can Watch On Peacock
Peacock provides access to popular NBC shows like The Office or Parks and Recreation, as well as Downton Abbey and Vikings. The streaming service also includes its own original programming like Rutherford Falls, a Saved By the Bell reboot, and a MacGruber TV show based on the classic sketch from SNL. In addition to TV shows, Peacock users can also watch a variety of movies.
With Peacock now widely available on virtually all smart TV platforms, the service is in the best position ever to start raking in subscribers. In 2020, Peacock reported just 33 million sign-ups and a loss of $914 million in revenue. Things didn’t get that much better in 2021, with NBCUniversal confirming just 54 million subscribers as of Q2 of that year. Peacock’s availability on Samsung smart TVs likely won’t be the sole reason it becomes more successful, but it’s a key step forward in ensuring as many people as possible can get the app.
