Peacock TV video streaming service offers a 7-day free trial for new users, which was missing for two years. Here is all about it.

The Peacock TV video streaming service is a unique platform in its niche, as it offers plenty of legal entertainment free of charge. The website is supported by ads in the basic (free for everyone) plan. But it has two premium plans which add the thrill of live news and sports, especially the English Premier League. The platform’s free trial, which had been missing for two years, is back online so new users can have the premium Peacock TV experience for seven days.

Most video streaming platforms on the internet fit into one of two categories: legal but paid or free but illegal. However, Peacock TV is an exception that is both free and legal. And to ensure it doesn’t exploit its users ever, it offers premium subscriptions, which provide users with an ad-free streaming experience. But did you know you can test these Peacock TV premium features with a free trial? If not, then keep reading as we explain to you all about it.

What is Peacock TV?

Peacock TV is the video streaming venture representing Comcast on the internet. It is the video and media giant behind Universal Studios, NBC, and Comcast Internet service, among other enterprises. So, Peacock TV is online to display the content produced by the media companies within the conglomerate.

It currently has 28 million subscribers (about the population of Texas). And even though the service is free and supported by advertising, 13 million users are happy to pay for the premium service, which eliminates the ads and offers some additional features. 

The streaming website features some of the latest TV shows, classics, and movies. Some popular shows include Law and Order, This is Us, The Park, the Office, and Cheers.

The Peacock TV free trial

As mentioned previously, Peacock TV is both free and legal. However, 46% of the platform’s users pay a fee to have the premium service. The unusually high percentage of loyal, paying users suggests plenty of value in the premium Peacock TV subscription.

So, what is so cool, we hear you ask? The good news is that you can find it out for yourself.

Peacock TV used to offer a free trial, but that option was discontinued in 2021. However, at the beginning of this year, the video streaming platform brought back a 7-day free trial that you can use to test every premium plan available.

There is plenty of great content to enjoy in the free basic plan, but if you are curious about the premium plans, then the free trial gives you a chance to make an informed choice.

How to activate the Peacock premium free trial in 2023

If you would like to go ahead and try the Peacock TV premium service as soon as a subscriber, here’s what you need to do step by step:

  1. First, launch your browser and point it to the Peacock premium website.
  2. Next, click on “Sign In” and “Join Peacock,” which you will find in the web page’s top right corner.
  3. Choose the free plan (the one you’ll see on left from three plans shown on the page). The website will now ask you to provide personal details, fill them in, and create your account by clicking on the create account button.
  4. You have completed the process and can start watching Peacock TV now.

The free trial’s length

Peacock TV subscribers can now enjoy a seven-day free trial with all premium plans.

The platform offers three subscription plans. The basic one is free, but you must bear with some advertising. However, it includes plenty of classic TV shows and movies, so it offers enough entertainment for any average user, and the advertising only shows up once every hour. Hence, it’s less annoying than most free video streaming platforms, such as AZMovies and StreamEast, to name a few.

Next comes the Peacock Premium plan, at $4.99 monthly, and then the Peacock premium plus plan, at $9.99 monthly. The premium plans give you access to the latest films, live sports, the Premier League, and instant access to the newest updates.

The benefits

As a free trial user, you can see several live sports, including games from the Premier Football League, golf, and Sunday Night Football, which are unavailable for basic plan subscribers.

In addition, once the free trial of seven days ends up, the system will build you automatically according to the premium plan you selected to try. This benefit is exclusive to new subscribers
