How to watch Peacock with Proton VPN

Launched in 2020, Peacock is a new streaming service that features content from the NBC network (the name “Peacock” comes from the colorful NBC logo).

What makes Peacock stand out from other streaming sites, like Hulu, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+, (all of which can also be streamed using Proton VPN) is that it offers a generous free tier.

All you need to watch over 13,000 hours of free content is a Proton VPN IP address located in the United States.

How to watch Peacock with Proton VPN

Connect to any Plus server located in the United States. Plus servers have a “P” icon next to them in our macOS and Windows apps and are available to our Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers.

For best performance, we recommend connecting to the closest US server to your location.

Step 1:

Get a VPN Plus or Proton Unlimited subscription

If you already have a VPN Plus, Proton Unlimited, or Visionary (legacy users only)  account, you can skip to step 2.

If you’re a new user, sign up for Proton VPN.

If you have a Free plan, upgrade your account by logging in and selecting VPN Plus or Proton Unlimited from your account Dashboard.

Step 2:

Install our VPN app

If you’ve already installed one of our apps, you can skip to step 3.

You need to download the Proton VPN app for your operating system. You can securely stream your favorite shows on Windows, macOS, and Linux devices or on the go with an Android or iOS device.

If you have an Android TV, you can join the beta testing program and install the app directly on your device.

For installation help, here are our support guides:

Note: You can only access Peacock on iOS with the Peacock app, which is only available in the American version of the App Store.

Step 3:

Connect to a Plus server in the United States.

Step 4:

Sign up for a free Peacock account

An impressively large catalog of TV and movie titles is available to free subscribers. Most of these are older tiles pulled from NBC’s back-catalog, but they include many popular “classics.” Ads are played during free content.

All you need to do to join as a free member is provide a username, password, and email address.

Peacock Premium costs $4.99 per month with ads or $9.99 per month without ads. It offers 20,000 hours of content, including NBC Originals (such as Brave New World), NBC shows broadcast on the previous day, and a large selection of (much newer) movies. It also includes access to sporting events, like the English Premier League.

You can upgrade to a Premium account inside your account area on the Peacock website.

If you already have a subscription with Xfinity or Cox, you can access Peacock Premium at no additional cost.

Step 5:

Kick back and enjoy Peacock with Proton VPN!

After you have signed-up for a Peacock account (whether Free or Premium), just connect to a Proton VPN Plus server in the US to enjoy content on Peacock.

If you experience issues watching Peacock, please try the following:
