As someone who is a die-hard fan of The Office, with news that NBC would be bringing it as a Peacock exclusive, I was nervous. I didn’t want to lose my ability to binge-watch my favorite TV show. I use Roku as my primary streaming device and I was nervous that Peacock wouldn’t be available on it. Luckily, that’s not the case.
Peacock came through and put its Peacock TV channel on Roku’s marketplace. This ensured that I would not only be subscribing to the service but that I wouldn’t be without access to my favorite TV show just because Netflix lost the streaming rights to it.
Is Peacock TV Available On Roku?
Yes, you can find and add Peacock TV to your Roku device. The easiest way to do so is by navigating to the home screen, going to the channels, and searching for Peacock TV. (Unlike other unsupported devices like the Amazon Firestick)
From there, you simply ‘add’ the channel to your device and log into your Peakcock TV account or create a new one. You will only be able to use Peacock TV if you are located in the United States due to Peacock regional rights restrictions.
Do You Need To Pay?
Peacock TV is NBC’s brand new streaming service and it offers a lot of content that you might be interested in. Since they were bringing The Office to the service as a Peacock exclusive, I knew I was going to be using it.
There is an option to watch Peacock Free which gives you plenty of selection to choose from, but it doesn’t bring everything that you might want. It only delivers you with the first two seasons of The Office.
If you want to stream the entire show, you’ll need to pay for Peacock Premium which is $4.99 per month. Unfortunately, this pricing tier requires you to watch advertising in the middle of your content. If you want an ad-free experience, you need to pay for Peacock Premium Plus which is $9.99 per month.
Why Use Peacock On Roku?
One of the best things about using a Roku device is that you can take it with you traveling and use a VPN to access Peacock’s service even though you aren’t supposed to be able to outside of the country. When you use a VPN, you can trick the device into thinking you are accessing it from the USA.
Want To Watch Peacock TV On Roku?
You will be able to watch whatever you want on Roku devices. There is no need to purchase a new streaming device if you are looking to watch live WWE pay-per-view events, NBC TV shows, or anything else. With Roku, you’ll have all of the access to the endless hours of Peacock TV exclusive content.
Roku makes it easy to subscribe to whatever premium services you want to and to use the free tier of Peacock TV if you just want access to the free content that is offered. Keep in mind, this content is ad-supported so you will need to watch commercials if you want to stick to the free tier.
