Peacock Not Working On Your Device? [8 Fixes]

You might not be eligible to avail the service, or the app version may not be up to date. Here are 14 ways you can solve this error.

Peacock can stop working for a number of reasons, from being in a location where the app does not allow service to, to the app data being corrupted. Whatever the cause may be, in this guide, I’ll talk about how you can deal with it.

Key Takeaways

  • Peacock may not work on your device for several reasons, such as a poor internet network, ongoing server issues, the presence of corrupt data in the app’s files, etc.
  • Restarting your internet/device, cleaning the cache and app’s data, reinstalling the Peacock app, and other fixes can solve this problem on your device.
  • Peacock is available in a limited number of countries. Hence you cannot access it if your location does not match the list of supported countries.

Be sure to try out these simple fixes before proceeding to more complex ones:

  1. Restart Your Device
  2. Clear the app’s cache and data
  3. Power cycle your internet modem.

Check Peacock Servers

When this issue happened to me, I tried checking the servers on a YouTuber’s recommendation. Sometimes, the network’s servers could be down due to glitches or ongoing maintenance, thus halting the service throughout the globe.

Use the steps below to be sure that the problem is on the server’s end.

  1. Search “Peacock server status” on your browser.
  2. Go to Downdetector.

In such cases, you have no option but to wait for the engineers at Peacock to fix their servers. You can only stream videos on the service once the servers are up and running. So, get an update after 10 minutes to see if the problem is resolved.

Update The Peacock Application

Using an old Peacock version can hinder video streaming on the app. Check if you have missed out on the latest Peacock updates on your device.

  1. Go to the “App Store” of your device.
  2. Search “Peacock”.
  3. You will see an “Update” button if there is a new update for the app.
  4. Click on the button to install the recent app updates on your device.

Stream Peacock On Another Device

If you cannot make the streaming service work on a certain device after multiple tries, I would advise you to try to use it on another device; for example, install it on your mobile phone if you watch the shows on your TV. TutorialsHub on YouTube also resolved the error with this fix.

Enter your login credentials after the installation is complete, and play any video on the app. If you do not encounter any playback issues on this device, then the problem is likely within your previous device.

Find Out If Peacock Is Available In Your Country

As of November 2022, you can only stream Peacock in certain countries. Peacock will not work for you if you are based in any country outside of the ones mentioned in the list below.

  • USA
  • UK
