    Limited Watchability Terrible

    I like the new Peacock Streaming Service content, but the limits on how and where you can watch are too great to make it enjoyable. I downloaded the app and thought I would first try the ad-based free version. I also subscribed to Apple TV+ in order to create more watching options. I was so wrong. I can watch it on my iPhone but I can not mirror it to my Apple TV box which is an earlier model. Very disappointing. No support across Apple platforms no matter what the generation of Apple device is sad. I also can’t watch the Peacock Service through Apple TV+ on a Fire Stick or Roku. Both these block the Peacock feed within the Apple TV+ app. This unwillingness to share programming from one streaming device company to the next only hurts the customer. I will be dumping Apple TV+ and also the Peacock app until they can make it more user friendly and accessible on whatever TV or device I choose to be using.

    Excellent Content, Easy to Use

    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

    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.

    SCAM!!! 😡😡😡😡

    So I got this and I was thinking that my kids can watch their favorite movie the was no longer on anything else. So I go into the app a sign in and when I found the movie I HAD TO PAY FOR IT!!!! In the add, I watched it specifically said that ” Any movie you can watch for free!!” and I was happy, but when I saw that I immediately deleted the app and I'm so mad and my kids are disappointed I do not recommend this app unless you want to pay money every month for your kids to watch something. Also, there are no kid movies and all adult movies and barely any kid's movies. Otherwise, the app is kind of nice if you're an adult but I do not recommend this to kids, but I hated how it did this to my kids. And one more this when you get out of the app to do something and go back in it brings you back like 2 minutes!!! Please fix these or include them in your add!! 😡😡

    Promising But Needs UI Improvements (Apple TV)

    I fail to understand in this day and age the arrogance of an organization the size of NBC-Comcast in thinking that they can design a better UI for controlling playback that the countless other steaming apps. There is no shame in making your UI mirror the same actions as other apps. I as a user should not have to a spend time trying to figure out how to rewind, fast forward, etc a streaming app when the other streaming apps are intuitive to the point where it was a see less experience when I started using them. Disney+ : No problem when I started using it. HBO Max : No problem when I started using it. Peacock : Writes a review to call out the issue and seriously wonders if NBC has heard the terms “usability study” and “human computer interaction”.

    Good Content, Needs User Profiles

    I like the content Peacock has to offer, but the fact that it doesn’t have user profiles is an issue. It needs that urgently. It also needs 4K (for compatible shows and devices) and mobile downloads. To the issue of user profiles, once they do get released, there’s going to be a bunch of content on one person’s profile that the whole family had watched for the past month (or however long it takes for them to release this feature). So there also needs to be a way to edit watch history as well.

    Its eeh

    It’s not that impressive, the content is lacking and the interface is horrible and confusing. I get that I won’t be perfect seeing that it’s free, but come on it can at least be better. As for the content, it’s also not great it does have good shows but not as many as one would think. Their originals are also not impressive, but it’s new so I’ll let it slide. But the tiers are completely pointless. It free but you can’t watch all the shows and movies it offers. If you pay you get those very few movies and shows available and if you get the top tier you get no ads. But there aren’t even that many ads so the tiers are pointless. Please do better

    Tough To Like

    It seems that peacock’s ONLY appeal is the library of shows and movies, which are difficult to find and watch. I downloaded the app this morning and was stunned by the lack of thought put into the user interface. Very little clarity on when live events will actually air, or how to play them. Certain channels worked without issue (the office for example) but others wouldn’t play at all. I tried both trial subscriptions and found nothing changed. Ended up watching the premier league on my old NBC Sports Gold which defeats the purpose of this new app. Please revisit the presentation and take a look at how FUBO TV does their interface for inspiration.

    Horrible Livestream Broadcast

    I tried watching an EPL live soccer game and it was extremely frustrating and a very poor experience. The streaming would frequently freeze and restart with delay. I would get a goal notification and two minutes later see it happen. At times the video would freeze by sound was working. Several times I had to close and reopen the app to unfreeze. And finally with 10 minutes left I couldn’t open the stream no matter how many times I tapped the program. It’s a shame they removed the EPL games from NBCSN network to make it exclusive for peacock. I will watch the rest of season on a European broadcast using my VPN. I would never pay for this poor quality service.

    Disappointing

    I pre bought this streaming subscription for a free app, and already felt dumb for that. Then on launch day I realize we can only watch from our phones. My house has 5 iPhones, 3 fire tablets, 4 roku TVs 2 fire sticks and a 2012 Vizio, and we can’t watch this app. I bought a cast app to get my iPhone to cast to my tv and peacock still wouldn’t cast, everything else from my phone did, until I opened peacock. We used a HDMI cord from the tv to to a laptop and got an error message. We knew our living room tv was old, we had no clue it was a 2012 until trying this app. Now I feel like I need to buy a different tv or a Apple TV box to watch a free app that I paid for. Thanks for making me feel stupid peacock.

    Great content; lousy UI

    Four stars for content. Unfortunately, the UI is frustrating. First of all, while scrolling I keep accidentally playing a video. Said video then appears in Continue Watching. Second, there is no way to remove an item from Continue Watching. Third, Watchlist and Continue Watching get lost in the layout. Put them on their own tab. Fourth, the infinite scroll in the channel list is annoying. Without colors or channel numbers (and because of infinite scrolling), it is hard to see where the list starts and ends.

    Simple but yet a long way to go

    I watch the premier league games on this app and I watch them with AirPods on. Every time this disconnects, the game pauses and it does not have a play button anywhere on the app to resume. So i have to close and start from scratch every time. Also if you switch apps to text and then try to open the app back up, it kicks you back to the main menu, even if you never closed this app. Other than that, it looks nice and I like the idea of switching to any game I want. (Games that show off air aren’t really off air, their menus don’t update quick enough to tell you a match has started).

    Incredible content! How is this free?

    I can’t believe that all of my favorite content is finally free! From all of the timeless classics I loved growing up (Saved by the Bell!!) to iconic shows like 30 Rock (my fave), Peacock has so much to watch. I can’t wait to dive into all of this content. I have tons to get through even before The Office drops in 2021! I’ve been so excited for this app to release (saw the advertisements everywhere) and it does not disappoint. I literally can’t not watch.

    It’s a new app

    Peacock is actually pretty good for a free streaming app that isn’t even a week old, yes the display could use some touch ups and it would be nice to have multiple profiles under the same account, but these are small details that can be updated in the future. Many people are complaining about its features but it hasn’t even received its first major update. I think it’s quality for how new it is.

    You have a problem...

    So I started watching with The Capture. I use subtitles when I watch as I have a hearing issue. The problem I’m referring to is with the subtitles. I don’t know yet if it’s a system wide problem, but the subtitles have about a 2 second lag behind the spoken word.... very, very distracting. Please look into this. There’s no way I’m going to pay for a subscription if this is an ongoing issue. When this gets resolved I will give it the 5 stars I think it deserves.

Really horrible application design; worst I have seen. As a software tester by profession, I would fail this on many many levels.
One - no way to prevent a new show from starting automatically, A random choice that I did not pick. Then it’s stuck in watch now. No way to remove it.
Two - most recent episodes do not register as having been watched and continue to appear in watch now.
Three - often cannot escape the show you just watched.
Four - paying for medium subscription which assures you very few ads. This is totally untrue.
I am removing this application and canceling my account. NBC does not seem to care that this is extremely bad design. This is especially shameful considering the source. A huge damage to NBC’s reputation. I have been watching for over two months now and nothing has changed despite all the complaints.
I contacted Peacock by phone to report this, and the application from the customer service person was that this has been the general feedback across-the-board.

Soooooo limited. I have Dish and they did not allow a download. Had to subscribe to UtubeTv to get NBCsportsBayArea to get SF Giants Games and after paying extra per month BIG TIME for that I'm very disappointed that you are after even more $$ from me and still wanting more

I have tried throughout the movie clicking on cc subtitles but it comes on saying English Subtitles on my screen as if it's on , but no Subtitles show up.

When I first downloaded the Peacock app to watch without a subscription I saw that they had seasons 3 - 9 of The Office Superfan Episodes so that's when I decided that I would go ahead and pay for the monthly fee. Once I actually did the monthly subscription they only had season 3 of the Superfan episodes. I then read in the description that they were planning on adding more seasons in March. It is now April and there is still only 1 season of the Office Superfan episodes which is honestly very disappointing!! The MAIN REASON why I subscribed to Peacock was to be able to watch the Office and the Superfan episodes but I've waited all this time now and still nothing. I've decided not to renew my subscription now because I feel like I was played. How is it that all the seasons were on there before I subscribed and when I did subscribe they took all of them off but 1 season?!? Ridiculous!!!!!

I decided to try peacock TV for one free week. One whole day I was able to watch anything on their channel. Because I have a fire stick, I had to go to extra lengths to download their app onto my TV. After that first day nothing will load for their channel. I have tried everything. Unplugged my router, unplugged my TV my fire stick, reloaded the app, etc.

To no avail.

I can watch it fine on my Apple phone. But not on my fire stick TV or My Roku. I read where it said you could get peacock TV on Roku but obviously not the version of Roku that I have.

So I’m canceling the free subscription, so I don’t get charged. Hopefully when they get these issues figured out with allowing them to have the app on other platforms, then possibly I will get a subscription.

This app is terrible for a simple reason. There is no rewind for love events. Come on. It’s a massive corporation with billions of dollars and they can’t build an app with this functionality. Plus they won’t even let you start a game or show until well after it is over. This is 2020, not 2010. It’s absurd. A game at 2:00 pm finishing at 4:00 pm still can’t be viewed at 5:30 pm. These are money grabbing power mongers.
