  • Great content, flaccid app

    By Rdubesq
    One of the very biggest corporations on planet earth and this is the best they can do. Laggy, buggy, wobbly. An ad in the middle of a show (also, premium, why ad?) locks it up and gives a black screen that I have to fast forward past to jog the app to play the ad? Come ON!!!
  • Chromecast audio syncing issue

    By Alieo24
    The app casts fine to my Chromecast, but after a few minutes the audio and picture no longer sync up, so I constantly have to start and stop whatever I am watching. The content is not great either. I don’t think it’s worth paying for until they fix this major bug and add more shows I can’t watch on other streaming services.
  • Love the selection

    By bmbruml
    Completely love that this service has a free option and that it has a huge selection. I hate though how difficult to navigate it can be, it doesn’t remember or have a space for currently watching and that in a middle of a season it becomes premium and requires payment to continue watching. It’s definitely a work in progress with good things but a lot of improvement to be made.
  • Streaming does not resume at the right spot after the commercials

    By Elizabeth Ag
    I am losing my mind. I am not able to watch a full movie or episode. Once commercials starts, I pray for the streaming to resume at the right spot. Every time the content starts from the beginning or from previous commercials. When I move the slider to the right place, the commercials start again immediately, and they kick me back to the content I already watched. I can’t believe nobody has the same issue. It happens consistently for me with 3 different iOS devices.
  • Needs work

    By Yolemap
    The content looks pretty good but I’m not the kind of person that wants to watch movies or tv shows on my phone so I have an adapter and a HDMI cable to cast or mirror programs in my tv. Which is something I can do with Netflix but apparently it’s not possible with Peacock. Sorry but I don’t think I will pay to upgrade my account just to watch things on my phone so I’m probably going to just delete the app.
  • Useless

    By KCWhbJr
    Can’t get this to cast to my TV. Just spins and spins. Also not much worth watching is truly free on this. Not worth downloading unless you’re willing to pay to watch NBC on your device. I’m not.
  • not letting me download

    By nastwhorettukp2983:8
    it’s not letting me download this.
  • Mirror?

    By Water 12345
    I really wish the app offered a mirror to TV option. I tried through my phone and smartTV and though it looked like it was working the TV just wouldn’t show the same screen at all. I’m not saying to be just like Netflix/Prime/Hulu, but even the TNT app allows you to mirror your screen. PLEASE FIX THIS! I’m looking forward to watching the new shows :) Update: Still not possible to watch on your TV, unless you have an Apple TV. The screen mirror I usually use with my iPhone Does. Not. Work. I will probably wait until their next update to see if they find a solution, otherwise it’s just too frustrating, I’ll stick with my more reliable streaming platforms.
  • Needs lots of work

    By Santorini861
    Constant buffering, loads of commercials, had to start and restart 6 time in one movie
  • Not compatible with Chromcast

    By cos8999
    Despite advertising itself as compatible with Chromecast, this app is not in fact compatible.
  • Peacock app

    By Cassie hong
    Having subtitle issue. Words are together and some are repeated some are misspelled.
  • Freezes up going into or out of commercials

    By Debt Free Is Less Stress
    Update 7/27/2020 - it’s actually gotten worse on the either going into &/or coming out of commercial breaks, happening on each commercial break, (sometimes multiple times in each one). They don’t really have free stuff that isn’t somewhere else, & they put out a lot of hype but they haven’t lived up to. They have some small amount of paid stuff that I would watch, but I’m not paying that much for all this frustration. Original review: On the Apple TV app (at leas), it Freezes up either going into or coming out of commercials. (It happens soooo many times in 1 show it makes you want to GIVE UP!) This is an error I see ALL THE TIME IN APPS THAT DONOT HAVE A PAID VERSION (AS IN ALWAYS & COMPLETELY FREE), but In a paid app, or an app that offers a paid plan you DO NOT USUALLY SEE THIS HAPPEN, LET ALONE HAPPEN CONSTANTLY. So I sit thru commercials and when it tries to come back to the show, it freezes up, so I have to close it out, start over, & It can go back into commercials & sometimes actually does it again, then at the next commercial break I get to do it all over again. The app started in April, so you would think they would have fixed all this before the national launch July 15th.
  • Needs some tweaks

    By kengy kangaroo
    This app is great, but there’s something about the app that’s missing. For a me, and probably a lot of other people, I downloaded this app to watch shows and movies being removed from Netflix and Hulu. The ability to download episodes to watch offline is missing from this app. I like on Netflix, the ability to watch picture in picture, so you could have your show on in the corner of your screen while be looking at something online, or texting. I also like how on Netflix, there’s the ability to adjust the brightness with a little slider on the screen, and I like how you can skip episodes immediately with a button on the bottom. The dark color scheme could be changed. Also, a minor thing, but the way how Netflix or Hulu shows more covers on the screen at once if nice to see all your viewing options. It sounds kind of nit-picky, but I thing minor changes like that could really improve the overall feel of the app.
  • Keeps crashing

    By patrickt777
    Crashes upon opening. Can’t even enjoy it
  • Can’t mirror

    By pizzatruck14
    Can’t mirror on IOS devices. HDMI adaptor doesn’t allow either.
  • Password

    By Noah Zarc
    To tell you the truth I’m just done with creating passwords for every single app. If you can’t be bothered to integrate with google our some other password service then I think I’m done. Just downloaded and logged into iMDBs app using my google account and was watching a movie in seconds— and I don’t have another password to remember.
  • Decent content, Terrible App

    By Dizzledi
    This app still needs a tremendous amount of work. The fast forward and rewind functions don’t work on Apple TV. In order to get to the series page of something, you have to go hunt down or search for it even if you’re watching that exact show at the moment. Functionality is very poor.
  • It’s not ready.

    By po'd in Bayonne
    Was watching Brave New World 10 Minutes in it tops and message on tv says ready to cast. Contacted customer service and told it only will work with android. And was suggested I get an android device.
  • Off to a great start

    By Anders Sienna
    Different content than the other guys, gives me a break from the norm. A welcomed distraction while I’m stuck indoors. Columbo’s googly eyes sure crack me up Now please just give me volume control during the amped out loud commercials (you know we still have volume buttons right). Thats the only sour to your sweet.
  • Had High Hopes

    By Niknak831
    I had high hopes for this app. Used it at my MIL’s house to watch endless episodes of The King Of Queens. Since she was an Xfinity customer it worked beautifully BUT when we tried to pair the app with our Samsung Smart TV it does not work. Airplay won’t work either. I even tried going on the TV’s internet to watch and it won’t work properly. This is insane! Why make, release and, promote an app that only select people can use. Please fix this.
  • Not user friendly

    By kvudjejs
    Very poorly made app. Not user friendly at all. Not many options for casting to smart TVs and the app will not auto play the next episode if you are watching a series. The shows will just randomly stop playing half way through the episodes. And it’s not easy to search for specific episodes.
  • Goodbye soccer

    By mjackmcfc
    The fact that peacock will not work on hdmi adaptor is a huge loss. I have purchased every app nbc has made for the premier league. I live in the middle of nowhere and do not have internet access. Now it looks like I have to watch every match on a phone. Please fix this!!!!!!!!!!!

    By pazito01
    no tienen películas en español o con subtítulos está mejor Netflix que todo esta en español
  • Busted App

    By Effeddddddd
    Absolutely worthless. You can’t mirror it to your TV so there’s no point in getting it at all. Skip it until they hire some real programmers.
  • Won’t connect to xfinity account

    By Cc285
    Says xfinity customers get a free upgraded middle version. Try to link the account and it says account linked to another email. What email? I’m the first to download app and try it that way. My mom just watches from her tv and it doesn’t require a login. Why bother having xfinity users create alternative accounts???? Shouldn’t we just be able to sign in with our xfinity account?? Definitely doesn’t compete with other streaming services at all.
  • Single worst launch of a streaming platform

    By Zuccerberger
    As I’m sure many of you reading the reviews are aware This app is built by monkeys on crack So much so, that in my and many others cases, Peacock simply refuses to boot upon install and immediately crashes. Let me use your app. Let me give you my money.
  • Pay wall is unnecessary

    By Razake
    I like the app. But I think they shouldn’t have three options. The options are free with adds. $4.99 with adds and $10 without adds. I think they should get rid off the paid with adds option and just have free with adds and paid without adds with both options having full access to content. Instead of hiding a lot of it behind a paywall. I’m already paying for four streaming services. I’m not paying for another. The ads for peacock made it sound like everything was going to be free.
  • Get Ready for Non-Stop Buffering

    By CrazyAboitLife
    This is the only app I’ve ever known to never stop buffering a movie...every 30 seconds. Tried on Firestick. Didn’t work. Apparently, Peacock and Amazon are feuding. Tried on Chromebook...buffering. Tried on iPad...buffering. Tried home internet and phone data. Nothing worked. So frustrating.
  • Bugs and more bugs

    By Hdfuvdrufdv
    This app will not allow me to watch any show. It will crash before it loads anything. I have deinstalled and reinstalled, I have restarted my IPad. Nothing seams to work. This app needs a lot of revision before I would ever recommend.
  • Can’t watch an entire episode

    By try again Peacock
    After ever commercial break the episode would double back to a part I already watched. Had to give up and revert back to a different streaming service. I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and give it an honest effort, but I couldn’t even get through a single episode. To bring more context, I was Air Playing the content from my iPhone. I did try to Air Play from my Mac and that didn’t work either. Kept getting an error that way.
  • Ads work fine, but not actual shows...

    By jdub2389
    There’s no app to watch this on my Apple TV or my Samsung Smart TV. So I tried to screen share from my phone to my Apple TV. The ads played perfectly fine, but then the show stopped playing on my TV as soon as the ads were over. It was playing fine on my phone. Why is it called Peacock TV if you can’t play it on a TV??!?! Uninstalled.
  • Waste of money

    By echo32gamer
    Unfortunately it has a crappy library of movies and shows, when you find a movie you want to see in HD 4K, it doesn’t play. It loads and loads and it stops at the main page, I tried resetting my device, checked my internet connection but wouldn’t load the Mummy movie with Brendan Fraiser, so annoying. I’m glad I canceled it during the trial. Avoid at all costs.
  • (Major) Audio Issue & Connection Issue

    By Brian C Wurtz
    Sound editing flawed. Goes back and forth from loud to quiet. Audio doesn't match up with video and gets increasingly worse. Disconnects multiple times and doesn't save your spot. This causes having to rewatch commercials. Needs work.
  • Old contents

    By Tampa kids
    Too old contents.
  • Watchlist Sync from iOS to tvOS is broken

    By Libertyforall
    Watchlist Sync from iOS to tvOS is broken!
  • Can’t Reset Password on iPad/iPhone

    By swanlobr
    The password reset form blocks paste and 1Password. When I manually type the same password twice, I see a couple “loader” dots flicker briefly, then nothing happens. Hard to rate an application anything other than 1 star if you can’t log in.
  • A major disappointment.

    By Marshmallowlicker999
    I signed up with one goal; Watch some good musicals, and what do I find? Nothing. I looked for Hamilton, I looked for Les Miserables, I even looked for The sound of music. None of them. I get that this thing just started up but that’s why I’m leaving two stars and not one, they need to seriously broaden their horizons, not just In terms of musicals but in TV and movies because they can’t even compare to stuff like Amazon or Netflix with such a small collection.
  • Can’t stream to TV

    By Auntmishie
    I’d love to be able to watch this but you cannot stream it to the tv like every other app I have on my phone. We had planned a big night to watch one of the shows and it is a no go.
  • Does not remember where you left off

    By playbackmemory101
    Good content but if you leave to take a call it will not remember where you were and will go back sometimes even to the beginning and then you have to watch commercials just to get back to where you were
  • Not working in iPhone screen mirroring mode

    By itunue
    The commercial works OK but the movie won’t show up on the TV screen with Screen Mirror turned on. It’s useless unless you enjoy watching commercials only.
  • Good content, can’t get it onto my TV

    By zoekay99
    It’s got a lot of content, some of which you do need a paid account for. Brave New World is worth it alone. However I have to watch everything on my iPhone, cannot get it to work on Apple TV or screen mirror to Apple TV from phone.
  • Ok app but

    By Wolfbrian2
    The service is good but the UI for the Apple TV is utter crap! Trying to navigate just a few seconds requires multiple steps. Please allow the 10 second skip on the Apple TV remote.
  • Can’t stream

    By Marky195882
    It’s great as a phone app but you can’t stream it to a tv thru a cable port on the phone or mirror on to a tv
  • Does not export to HDMI

    By Roro_Errece
    This app is the only streaming app by a major network that doesn’t correctly export audio or video through the Apple lightning digital AV adapter. I have tried multiple adaptors and this is the only app with that problem.
  • pause rewind apple tv

    By NCC1701 A
    hello nice choices for programming but no pause rewind fast forward for free version you advertise free but ......your not shame on you
  • Won’t work

    By BigSig78
    I love the app and shows that are on it! But won’t play through my chrome cast or my hdmi mirror cord from Apple So pretty much worthless!
  • All kinds of sports?

    By Mr Sal Barra
    World soccer, motoGP , nascar,, a must download for me. Whoever is responsible for all this sports on local channel i say to you!!!! A big thank you
  • Nice streaming service just needs to work out some kinks

    By Pepper0728
    It’s a different streaming app it has a nice choice of “live” channels and they have a very diverse content that they have provided/ created considering that most of the content is free. (Unless it has a white feather in the top right corner that content you will need a membership to access). There is problems with this service... First it will show you tv shows without a feather on it but the rest of the season after you watched the first episode for free you will need to upgrade to a plan to access the rest of the show and seasons. It could just be the tv show that I selected but they should be more transparent with what shows are free and the ones that have free episodes but you need to pay to unlock the rest of the season/seasons. Next problem and this might be a personal issue it doesn’t have automatic play on the next episodes so if you are casting on a tv you will have to go into the app to play the next episode. Another problem is the app especially if you are using it to casting to a tv... you can’t watch a full episode of a tv show or movie without the app or service crashing and the only way to get your content back playing or casting is to completely delete the app and reinstall it and when you have it reinstalled and restart your content it will buffer and play your content with the loading screen on playing your content in the background with out you seeing it and then the only way to see it again is to do what I stated above again. But considered this is a newer platform to steam on I expect bugs like this to happen but with reading all the other reviews I see that others have the same problem. (re: installing and uninstalled the app) On the upside I will say that roughly $5 for a basic membership that includes all their content that includes the content that has the feather on it and the “live” tv section ..but there is a downside you will still have ads unless you upgrade to the next tier. It isn’t that bad it’s on same pricing for a basic Hulu package and if you think about this service it’s basically Hulu but the NBCs version but then again Hulu has a better selection of live tv channels than this service has I would say the “live” section is nbc, cnbc and a bunch of niche TV channels that most of the content you have access to not live its just played to you in a live format.
  • Horribly buggy, paying to watch commercials

    By djmaine
    How long did NBC have to put this together only to have it pause constantly during a show? Why am I paying for a service to still deliver commercials? Several times during a show, the video will pause and go black. They only workaround I have is to fast forward through to get another commercial. Ridiculous.
