Peacock, NBCUniversal’s brand new streaming service, launched July 15th. It’s packed with thousands of hours of paid and free content, including original TV show Brave New World and the highly anticipated Psych 2: Lassie Come Home movie.
But can you watch Peacock on your Samsung TV?
There’s no Samsung Smart TV app, but there is still a way to stream Peacock content on your Samsung TV.
If your Samsung TV supports AirPlay 2, just download the Peacock app to your Apple device and create an account. Make sure your Apple device and Samsung TV are on the same Wi-Fi network. Then, start watching something and hit the AirPlay icon. Choose your Samsung TV and what you’re watching should display on your TV screen – though some people have reported difficulties using this method.
Peacock is not yet available on Amazon Fire Stick, either – though there is a similar trick you can use to watch Peacock content on a Fire TV. Peacock is fully compatible with Android, Apple and Smart TVs. It has become available on Roku from September 2020.
Also available on a standard plan for free, Peacock’s Premium plan costs $4.99, or you can opt for a commercial free experience with Peacock’s Premium ad-free plan for $9.99 a month.
Peacock doesn’t support Airplay, tried it yesterday and consistently received an error. Spoke with peacock tech support and was told that it will not work
Same! I tried both from my iphone and my macbook. It plays on those devices, but once I ask those devices to airplay to my tv, I receive an error message on my tv.
I know this is due to the fact that Peacock TV does not have a contract with Samsung. It’s disheartening that such a popular tv company as Samsung can’t get Peacock TV.
HDMI cable is amazing….
What do you mean? Can we watch Peacock in a Samsung tv using a cable?
I have Peacock on my phone, but I can’t get on our Samsung smart TV which we just bought. My impression was that you had to have a Samsung TV that was at least made in 2016. I have a 2020 Samsung smart tv why can’t I stream it from my television? Seems since a lot of people have a Samsung TV, you would want their business.
Same here. Very disappointed. Can’t even mirror the iPad to the Samsung with peacock tv.
Screen mirror works perfectly fine can watch all content
Exactly how are you doing this? Which Samsung TV model etc?
Screen mirroring is only playing audio – my video does not work on peacock
Or Roku! They did send me to a page that requests Peacocks “channel code” …which I cant find. Anyone know?

Why would you think I have an Apple device if I have a Samsung TV?
I can’t get Peacock to play via AirPlay. Lots of my other apps work, just not Peacock. That’s disappointing.
Same here I can get sound but no picture when playing thru my airplay on peacock app
Same thing is happening here. Have you found a fix for this?
This is intentional. Comcast owns NBC and Peacock. It works on Comcast flex because flex requires Comcast internet. Comcast needs to own the delivery channel to monopolize.
Got it to work! Went to smartview on phone. When TV showed up, there was a drop down- selected mirror. Then went to Peacock and hit the smart view Icon. Show was then on the TV.
JANICE –please walk me through this …smartview on phone?
Thank you, Janice. That worked for me too!
Can you walk me they this?
Can you please walk me through this?
Janice, can you please tell me where you found the smart view icon? I can’t see it anywhere on my Peacock app on my iPhone.
I screen mirrored and it worked perfectly fine. Able to watch all content.
Any updates on this thread? Big premier league fan who wants to watch Chelsea-Liverpool tomorrow? I would be forever grateful.
Your comment made me laugh because my husband is a huge soccer fan, Liverpool forever, etc etc. We just bit the bullet and bought an LG tv. He’s the happiest scouser on the planet.
I cannot believe you cannot access Peacock on a Samsung TV. Was so excited, and now disgusted.
I agree. There should be a way to access Peacock on a Samsung TV considering so many people have them and paid a lot for these TVs. What a major disappointment.
I agree. It sucks that peacock is not accessibly on Samsung tv. whats the point!
Me too. Cancelling Peacock tomorrow.
I have spent hours researching and am fuming I cannot get peacock on my Samsung TV or even on my Kindle!
yep ,me too
Me too I’ve 3 Samsung TV s.What good is peacock?
I was able to pull down the screen mirroring tab on iPad Pro when watching premier league last week. Showed fine. Today, to see Liverpool its not working. Last week the iPad went black with mirroring but TV showed game great. Now, TV goes black, while still playing on IPad. Seems like a Peacock issue, less so Samsung TV.

I got it to work, but only audio….
I was briefly able to mirror Peacock TV audio and video to my my Samsung TV. Now am only getting audio.
Same here. Has anyone tried to send to an old appletv plug in device ?
Same here! Works fine on my iPad but when mirrored/air played to my 2020 Samsung smart TV, ONLY AUDIO, NO VIDEO, highly disappointed.
I also agree. There should be a way to access Peacock on our current Samsung TV. Guess our next TV will be an LG.
Just terrible I stream on many different TV’s in my house Sony, LG both good, but no app available on Samsung extremely disappointing.
I just bought a new Samsung smart TV and there’s no Peacock app. Is there ever going to be one to download onto the TV? I can’t believe NBC didn’t make this available before the rollout!
Awful. Had to sit through this media blitz on FREE Peacock TV and I can’t even watch it on my Samsung Smart TV. I don’t even get the AirPlay symbol on my Ipad with this app. I get AirPlay for other apps – not this one! I hope this gets fixed so everyone can watch it for FREE like they blasted it all over the media!
Not fair! Come on Samsung do something for the customers who have invested in your product. This is poor customer service. Shame on you. Fix this issue immediately!
Peacock not allowing you to mirror is just trying to put us in the middle to try and make Roku, Amazon and Samsung look bad. In reality it’s typical Comcast BS, and a reason I am no longer a Comcast customer.
That sucks, I downloaded app on phone to get Peacock on my Samsung tv. That’s a big disappointment.
What!? Not available for Samsung Smart TV!? WTH?
On my Samsung TV there is an internet option so I assume that you can watch Peacock via the Internet option on the TV? It’s just a pain in the rear having to type in the URL.
Could not get it to load with the internet option on the smart tv. Apparently the browser is not supported by peacock
Yeah, that too! Piss poor corporation s blocking content and availability in their pettiness.
No just tried that and says your browser is outdated
Please update to more recent one.
Then tried all and Firefox was the only one that didn’t say This function is not supportedd
I agree with most of the comments on here peacock should be supported on the Samsung TV very disappointed that I can’t watch the psych movie which I’m kind of disgusted that they didn’t stay with the USA who supported them for eight seasons
Where do i find appleplay 2 on my samsung.
Rhonda H. Juarez
Yes, very dumb!
What a load of crap! I signed up on my phone for this only to learn that I cant access it on my Samsung smart TV. Paid a lot of money for my tv and I’m very disappointed. I was so excited for this, too.
HATE PEACOCK! Cannot control pause, play or fast forward without pounding away on 4K Sony Smart TV remote – then it doesn’t work or becomes impossible to stop and it goes into 6x rewind and takes you back to the top of “Brave New World” with no ability to fast forward to get back to where you were 35 minutes in, it just restarts from the top of the show and leaves you frustrated and angry. Peacock NEEDS ROKU! Not worth having for free for 3 months when you can’t really watch anything.
I can mirror the first screen when I search and choose a show, but when the show starts to plays on my iPad, the tv plays the audio only. How can I fix this?
Same thing for me, audio but no video!
No more premier league for me, Peacock is a joke and very poorly planned
I called xfinity and asked to have an X1 box so I could watch Peacock! Its totally free! It came in 3 days . Its not even close to a Roku device but its got Peacock and all free!!!! Yep Comcast gives us something free. Call and ask . Happy Peacocking.
They SHOULD give you something “free” since they charge a damn King’s ransom for cable. Xfinity/Comcast are a monopoly and a ripoff. I stopped using Xfinity 10 years ago.
Chromecast works – hook it up to your Samsung Smart TV and cast it, then you have Peacock TV on a Samsung Smart TV.
Very disappointed that I can’t access peacock on my Samsung tv or Roku device. Please make the app available to us!
I setup Peacock on my computer, but I really don’t want to watch Tv on computer. I just went to my iphone to put the Peacock app on and it’s an in app purchase. I thought it was free. Probably doesn’t matter as I’m a Samsung TV viewer too.
If you have chromecast set up on your Samsung Smart TV you can cast Peacock using that tool. Pretty easy.
Goto settings, scroll down to general, should pop up on the right, 4th. One down, say’s Apple airplay settings.
James C Noren
Same with me can I get peacock on new Samsung TV pretty disappointed. Have to watch advertisements for peacock on almost everything I watch love the TV disappointed with no app for peacock.
I’m very disappointed, i can’t watch Peacock on this expensive, Samsung TV.
I was able to connect it to my other LG TV.
Guests what? My next purchase TV. Won’t be a Samung !
Don’t blame Samsung. Blame Peacock.
I agree with many of the comments with this exception. Samsung is not at fault it is Peacock. It doesn’t work on Samsung TV’s, Roku or Amazon. That is peacock’s fault for not getting this settle not the 3 other companies. I was excited to watch several shows on their but not enough to watch on a smartphone. I would have even paid for no ads so Peacock is losing the business.
I’m a Samsung fan all the way. I have smart watches, smart phones and smart tv’s, all from Samsung. I’m not about to switch, but I would like to get Peacock. Is there a petition we can sign to get them to pick up Samsung?
Boycott Peacock. I also have a Samsung Smart TV.
I have a samsung tv can’t get peacock , but I can get in on i pad, but i pad is to small for four people to watch
Annoying that there is no peacock app on my Samsung TVs. Guess I’m not watching Premier League this year. Screen mirroring from my iPhone doesn’t work either. Cancelling my Peacock account.
Terrible will demand refund
it sucks that I can’t watch EPL on Roku or my Samsung. I hate the remote for Apple TV. I guess I give up watching EPL because of NBC’s greed.
I can watch and cast to TV from my phone or Chromebook. It’s not ideal, but it works.
Peacock not having app for samsung tv no problem, already have more apps than i need. Binging free peacock for the last few parks & rec episodes on my pc, better than tv, my pc browser uses adblock = no commercials…
any updates here on Samsung TV and Peacock EPL games? Super frustrating that there is no APP.
I just chatted online with tech support. Peacock will not AirPlay or Screen Mirror to Samsung TV.
They are “in discussion” to try and make it compatible.
I let my dissatisfaction known as I pay for Peacock specifically to watch EPL on my tv.
Disgraceful and frustrating situation!!

Has Samsung corrected the problem of no video only audio with peacock streaming to appleTV to Airplay2?
