Peacock TV on Firestick

Peacock TV is a streaming service from NBCUniversal which gives access to 15000+ hours of on-demand programs and sports contents. In this guide, we will discuss the steps to download the Peacock TV app on Firestick, a popular streaming device owned by Amazon.

Before downloading, ensure to sign up for Peacock TV. You can sign up for a free account without providing any card details. Moreover, you can also use the free account to stream media contents, but with advertisements. Apart from the free versions, Peacock TV also two premium plans: Peacock Premium and Peacock Premium Plus. The first one ($4.99/month or $49.99/year) lets you unlock more media content with ads. Whereas, the Premium Plus ($9.99/month or $99.99/year) lets you access the entire library without any advertisements.

Why you need a VPN

While Streaming online, your IP will be exposed easily. Hence ISPs (Internet Service Providers), app developers, government agencies and hackers can track your online activities with ease. At the end of the day, you may face some legal problems if you have streamed any copyrighted contents. To avoid these problems, we recommend you to use VPN (Virtual Private Network). A good VPN lets you hide your real identity by switching your IP to different locations. On the other hand, VPN is also helpful in accessing the media that are geo-restricted. Some of the apps/services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer and more are geo-restricted in certain countries. To bypass those restrictions, you need to install a VPN on your device.

NordVPN Deal:

After trying out several free and paid VPN services, we recommend you to use NordVPN. It is regarded as the best VPN to safeguard your privacy. While purchasing the NordVPN, make sure to select the annual plans rather than selecting the monthly plans. Moreover, you will also get a 70% instant discount on a 3-year plan.
