Love the content but believe there may be problem with my account 4/5
I have the premium and the plus plans yet when I downloaded my shows and tried to watch them later I was told I couldn’t because “must have the premium plus plans” which I am paying for monthly and would like to have all the content featured
By C L Linker
The app needs to be updated within of being released a few weeks?? Really. I was surprised all the episodes of the older shows are not available like the Carol Burnett Show. I don’t want the peacocks news which is front and centered. I want easy search and availability of free shows. Also, the not funny anymore SNL are pushed all the time. SNL needs to move on.... The premium shows change every month and not entire seasons but individual shows. Sometimes a few shows in a season will be free and next month different shows will be only available through the premium version....shows that are 10 or 15 years old.
Worst UI ever 2/5
Man, it’s rough switching from a decent UI to Peacock. It has to be the worst UI I’ve ever used for a streaming app. When you switch episodes while in the middle of watching one, there’s no titles or descriptions on episodes you’re switching to - so how do you know what episode you’re picking? And if I’m watching a series and finish an episode and it auto plays the next one, the next episode starts wherever it left off last time instead of from the beginning. This happens when I fall asleep while watching the office and then go back to what I saw before falling sleep. So annoying.
Not impressed 1/5
Unable to stream to either of my smart tvs. Fortunately one tv had the app, but every time I would open the app to login it would freeze. Won’t be paying for peacock much longer
Nailed it 5/5
I’m really impressed with the balance of good content and ads with Peacock. I had very low expectations after trying a rival network’s premium streaming service, but there’s a good amount of genuinely decent shows on here, available for free with totally tolerable ads. It’s advertising like it was several decades ago, unlike the unwatchable signal:noise that is modern broadcast TV. Haven’t tried the premium service yet.
Hats off to the team behind this… I think it sets the standard for the next generation of free streaming.
Not enough 4/5
Not enough entertainment options
The ark 5/5
This story was recognizable with the holy bible and would help a child to understand the building of the ark
Tethering or mirroring 1/5
I have an adapter for my apply devices that goes from the power connector to an hdmi cord that I would like to send to my flat screen TVs the sound goes through but no picture
Commercials even with premium payment. 1/5
Forces you to watch commercials even after you have paid to upgrade the service. Horrible. I get some commercials being part of re-watching live events, but to have commercials that you’re forced to watch to continue your program after paying a premium is ridiculous.
By dr sofiyap
I love watching it . It’s so fun.
Please add clear watching history 2/5
May you add clear watching history in a future update…. I’m a wwe network subscriber and it’s impossible to watch a single episode without it going to the next episode….. get this fixed or I’m gone or getting a VPN to go back to the old wwe network
Lazy app devs 1/5
This is just a barebones app that is prone to bugs. Also no playback for live shows is Stone Age app development. Could be good. No reasons it should be as bugged as it is considering how advanced media apps have become. But when you cut corners, you get mediocre results.
Add picture in picture 3/5
The app is ok for the most part, but not pip or other useful features like the other main streamers have.
No FF or rewind 3/5
The most basic of all functions, fast forward 10 seconds and rewind 10 seconds doesn’t work on the Apple TV app. Please fix!
Terrible UI 1/5
Worst user interface out of any streaming apps.
Poor App Design 3/5
While the shows and movies are of expected quality, the function of the App is poorly designed. There is no Rewind or Fast Forward allowed. There is no ability to go back 10, 20, or 30 seconds if you miss some audio, or a scene. There is no skip Intro option. If you are bingeing a series you have to watch the opening scene every time, no exceptions. Not having these simple options are annoying to avid TV watchers. UPDATE - The skip intro has been added to the App.
By yalll in my phone
I’m a first time user on this app and as for first impressions this one really sucked. The app freezes a lot.... There’s always an error popping up, it take 20 minutes for it to load the search thing, and get on the show, then play the show. That’s just way to slow. There’s so many good shows but come on look at these prices.Never Again
Worst streaming app ever 1/5
It freezes, it wont let you stream to your TV, not available on Samsung smart TV app. No worth a subscription.
Ads cutting off show 1/5
By Mr Scorp
The ads are cutting off 15 to 20 seconds of the show.
I WANT TO WATCH THE WHOLE SERIES 3/5
Yeah, it provides shows I used to watch on Netflix, but I literally have to get premium to watch past season two 😡 There isn’t a skip intro button either, which Netflix had.
You pay for commercials... 3/5
By Mix Tape Baby
Even with the premium subscription price you will still have commercials. Also you can’t skip the intro to the office...Maybe I’m too used to it being on Netflix but making the program free with commercials and adding an option to skip intros would be ideal.
Edit (6/15/21): The developer contacted me and the app has since been updated so you can now skip intros. Thanks for that addition! Still hoping for the commercial deal to change.
Audio cuts out randomly 1/5
It’s not a user-friendly app at all. I have to manually search a show every time I want to watch it, and sometimes have to manually select the episode where I left off or else it will play from the very beginning again. The audio cuts out randomly when I’m watching so I have to close the app and restart it to make it work again.
You hook people with the free word but it isn’t really free now is it
Finally ! Great choices of old and new 5/5
I can’t believe I didn’t know about peacock and their affordable fee ✊🏼 and I’m watching a lot of my great comedies and tv shows and movies again old and new king of queens Rey donavan below deck Yellowstone and much much more many on the Rez are subscribing and a breath of fresh air this streaming service doesn’t try and throw politics at you like all others thank you peacock 👍
Thanks for many choices
These things are liars 1/5
Once WWE recently moved to peacock I was happy because it was cheaper so I logged into my phone and tried to log in on my PlayStation since it wasn’t available on my Samsung tv or fire stick and my password information and everything was correct but it was telling me that it wasn’t working and to reset my password so I did it and it still doesn’t work and I can’t screen mirror on the tv because it goes to a black screen and takes the sound to my tv but the screen is still there peacock you need to get it together because I’m not gonna keep paying for you and you can’t deliver
Add basic features 2/5
1. Picture in Picture
2. Tap to see basic info like time and battery
3. Allow a few second rewind without having to re-watch the 1 mIn commercial I just watched.
Resident Alien 5/5
I had heard snippets here and there about Resident Alien. It had generated some buzz. My sister and her husband raved about it and convinced me to watch it. And I’m so glad I did! I think it’s brilliant and Alan Tudyk deserves an Emmy as best actor for his performance. I loved the small town setting, Max the little boy who can see him, the really strong females from Asta to D’Arcy to Liv to Sahar, his transformation from an uncaring alien sent to fulfill his mission to one who ultimately can’t, all the other stories interwoven into the main plot. Overall I loved that it was kind of strange and offbeat. It’s one of the best shows I’ve seen!
Great titles for a great price 5/5
Surprised by some of the titles and shows I have found on here that I can no longer find on other streaming services I have paid over 3x a month for! Cheapest subscription has ads, and initially had them playing periodically throughout the shows as you watch which was like having cable all over again(ads interrupting the climax of a movie ruins the experience) and I planned on ending my subscription after one month. HOWEVER, just recently(i suppose most recent update) they have begun to show all of the ads immediately at the beginning of the show and then allowing you to watch the rest ad free. I love this new implementation, allows me to pay for the cheaper subscription and still enjoy full movies after a single 180 sec ad break in the beginning. I will definitely be continuing my subscription moving forward.
I get that you want show ads and make dough. But for paid subscription come on man.
Needs less ads, it will play like 10 seconds of the show then you got 2 ads back to back!!
Terrible UX 2/5
No automatic skip for opening credits, no screen minimizing, default opens to some annoying screen with irrelevant promos. Buggy playback.
Picture in Picture 5/5
Add Picture in Picture please
Thank you For the service Also all the great free movies, Hopefully I can get the Premium service soon
Can’t AirPlay! 1/5
Why disable AirPlay??
Best app to stream your favorites on 5/5
By Isaiah's queen👑💍
This is the best app to stream all your favorites wish they had SOA (Sons Of Anarchy) it’s like Yellowstone but of motorcycle clubs
Horrific Navigating UI 2/5
Wow. Try and find anything, say olympic trials swimming finals live or NBC channel, total failure.
No way I would subscribe to this user interface, pushing shows never asked for…..
Needs picture-in-picture 2/5
The Peacock TV app is way behind the curveball.
It’s biggest downfall is that it lacks picture-in-picture capability.
The best streaming apps (Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, etc.) have picture-in-picture capability that allows users to multi-task (i.e. check email) and still watch their desired programming.
I would use the Peacock app way more if it had picture-in-picture.
Peacock can and should update the app ASAP with picture-in-picture.
Peacock FTW 5/5
They have all the Harry potters and the best ones are free!
On screen multitasking 4/5
Peacock has been great so far with lots of options and great shows. The layout has been ok, but my biggest complaint would be that it does not allow for audio playing in the background or small screen viewing like other services do. I would use it much more if it did have this feature.
Leave the wwe network alone 3/5
Stop editing out wwe/f programming!
Why can’t I delete anything from my watch list?
Not so great. 1/5
Signed up to watch the office, constant commercials, clunky interface, very sluggish streaming. I don’t have any of these issues with other streaming apps. I guess I just won’t watch the office anymore
The quality always changes to the point where it gets annoying and it glitches out every time I try to watch something.. they also don’t mention they have ads so I would just recommend using something else overall..
Our Review . 5/5
We love Peacock Television.
Amateur attempt 1/5
By Nick smithh
Oooooh boy does this app need a lot of work. Like, imagine coming into the media streaming service industry this late in the gam and having this app be your grand debut to represent all the hard work (and bank) you invested in securing exclusive deals with iconic shows.
The interface is sloppy and difficult to navigate, the algorithms for suggested shows are… questionable, the app blocks out your battery levels (as well as date, time, WiFi, etc.), you cannot minimize the app and have your show continue playing in a popped out window (guys, iPads have been out for over 11 years now… do you not understand your audience?), you cannot stream on to smart TVs or other similar devices, and there’s an excessive amount of redundancy in the features.
Here I am, trying to stream The Office to my TV, and my options are an icon that looks like an eyeball, something that looks like 3 sheets of paper stacked, and a symbol that looks like a trackpad on a laptop. All three options show me what episode I’m watching and the blurb about the episode? Why do I need 3 buttons that tell me what episode I’m watching? Who thought this was a good idea?
I can appreciate having a streaming service that’s completely free, but they do make money off of ad revenue and it’s sad to see that they aren’t investing in improving this amateur attempt of an app.
Best of luck peacock, but you need to make some serious changes with your developer team ASAP.
Amazing app 5/5
Truly a remarkable app with a lot of greatness
Problem with watching 4/5
By 2021 peacock
I can not stream it from my phon to my tv. I have an I phone , and also some sort of adapter along with my hdmi cord that is connected to my tv. The sound work, however I can not view it. I’m not sure why it’s not working, I have no problem watching Disney or Netflix.
Canceled again 1/5
The last update on this app for iOS was FOUR WEEKS AGO. Ever since my physical chromecast updated, peacock has not performed its auto play function. It’s unacceptable to have a streaming service I pay “premium” for and only use for The Office & can’t even utilize it. I know my personal feelings don’t mean anything, but The Office is my sleeper show. It’s the one that magically neutralizes my depression. I lost both of my parents in 2 years time & all I look forward to is spacing out with the office on. Now I can’t even do that. You need to update more frequently if you want to stay relevant for new customers & keep your current customers.
A few minutes of the show and then 10 minutes of buffering over and over and over again! Worst streaming app out there by a long shot! Also canceling my paid subscription it’s that bad!
