How to Watch Peacock on an LG Smart TV

Peacock, NBCUniversal‘s streaming service, offers thousands of hours of entertainment to cord-cutters. From classic shows like The Office to movies, sports and news, Peacock has something for everyone. The streaming service is supported on a variety of devices, including LG smart TVs.

In this comprehensive guide, you‘ll learn the different methods to watch Peacock on your LG smart TV. Whether you want to use the built-in Peacock app, cast it from your phone or tablet, or use an external streaming device – we‘ll walk you through each option step-by-step. Let‘s get started!

Download the Official Peacock App

The easiest way to watch Peacock on an LG smart TV is to use the official Peacock app available on LG‘s Content Store. Here‘s how to download and install it:

  1. On your LG TV remote, press the Home button to access the smart TV‘s menu.

  2. Select the Apps or Content Store icon on the menu bar at the bottom. This will open up the app store.

  3. Use the on-screen keyboard to type "Peacock" in the Search bar. Select Peacock from the search results.

  4. Follow the prompts to install the Peacock app. You may need to sign-in with your LG account if prompted.

Once installed, open the Peacock app. You can browse through different movies, shows, news and sports channels available. And best of all – it‘s free to install!

While the Peacock app offers a free tier, you‘ll need a paid Peacock Premium subscription ($4.99/month or $49.99/year after a 7-day free trial) to access all content.

Cast Peacock from Your Mobile Device

Another easy way to watch Peacock on an LG TV is by casting it from your smartphone or tablet using the mobile app. As long as your mobile device and LG TV are on the same Wi-Fi network, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install and sign-in to the Peacock app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.

  2. Browse to the movie, show or channel you want to watch.

  3. Tap the Cast button (looks like a TV screen icon). Your LG TV should show up if it‘s on the same network.

  4. Simply select your LG TV from the list to start casting Peacock to the big screen!

Casting provides an easy and quick way to watch Peacock on your LG TV without having to install any additional apps or sign up for new accounts.

Use External Streaming Devices

Don‘t have an LG TV with built-in Peacock app support or want more streaming options? Not a problem! You can connect external streaming devices like Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and game consoles to watch Peacock on your LG smart TV.

For example, Apple TV and Roku provide hundreds of streaming apps including Peacock for an optimized streaming experience. After connecting these devices to your LG TV, here‘s how you can sign up and start streaming Peacock:

  1. Using the Apple TV/Roku remote, find and open the Peacock app from the home screen.

  2. Select Sign Up and choose between free or paid plans.

  3. Browse Peacock channels and stream away on your LG TV!

Game consoles like Xbox and PlayStation also have Peacock apps in their respective stores. Once installed, you‘ll have unlimited on-demand access to movies, shows, news, sports and more to stream on your LG TV.

Cast from Your Computer‘s Web Browser

Don‘t have a mobile device or streaming box handy? You can also cast Peacock directly from compatible web browsers on your Windows PC or Mac computer to your LG smart TV.

Here are the steps:

  1. On your computer, open any compatible web browser like Chrome, Firefox or Safari. Head over to the website.

  2. Click on your profile icon in the top-right and then select Cast. Your LG TV should appear in the list if it‘s turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer.

  3. Simply choose your LG TV and Peacock on the computer will start streaming onto your TV!

While convenient, casting from a computer introduces some lag since it has to stream video over the network. For best results, use the native Peacock app or external streaming devices connected directly to your TV.
