    The BIG QUESTION, what if we are getting Peacock Premium for Free subscribed through our provider. Can we link it?
    There’s the Free Version,
    Then there’s the $4.99 Premium Version
    Then the ($4.99) Premium Version that some of us “Get For Free” through our provider (Comcast)
    Finally there’s The Premium Plus No Ad Version for $9.99
    In Reality There are “4” Levels to this service, financially speaking.

      The only way you get it free from Comcast is by linking your Xfinity account with your Peacock account, so yes, it works no matter which Peacock app you are using once you link your Xfinity account.

        I guess we will find out tomorrow, Comcast has notoriously blocked the ability to login to streaming apps to protect there own interests. One example: STARZ Comcast customers that get STARZ as part of their package still cannot login into the Starz App downloaded from the Amazon App Store years later. So…we shall see…

        • Mark Orchard says:

          Comcast owns NBC which is the company that owns Peacock so there shouldn’t be a problem with signing in with your Xfinity account.

          • TechyChris says:

            Yes 100% aware of this. I guess Everyone’s missing my point.
            Comcast WILL DECIDE what is best for Comcast FINANCIALLY.
            I have been Streaming for A long time…many folks won’t remember the battles the streaming world went through years ago when Comcast did not allow subscribers to login to HBO because it took eyeballs (meaning $$$) off of their set top boxes and website.
            So again…I hope there are no glitches…but we shall see.
            No Worries everyone is entitled to their own opinion!

    If I previously side loaded the Peacock app, do I need to delete it and install the official app or will it update itself?

    • Ian King says:

      I have the same question

      • oasis_001 says:

        Elias replied in the previously posted article that it is best to uninstall the sideloaded app and do a fresh install of the official PEACOCK app that will be available in the Amazon app store tomorrow.

    I sideloaded it and used it once…content is just not there

    • oasis_001 says:

      When did you last check the content? They have been adding quite a bit to the catalog recently. Might be worth a second look now that there will be an official app to install tomorrow.

  4. Mark says:

    Just what the streaming world needed…another, overpriced app. SMH

    Have Peacock through my HOA Comcast account AND side loaded. Side loaded even using my Comcast credentials does not offer the same content as the Premium Version on the cable box. Will be interesting to see. Also interesting to see how large is their app VS. sideloaded. Hum?

    • oasis_001 says:

      Installed the official Peacock version on Fire TV today. The sideloaded version was 48MB in size and the officially released version is 28-29MB in size.
