NBC’s online streaming app Peacock TV, may be a relative newcomer in an increasingly crowded field of streaming apps, but it’s certainly no slouch. It’s become quite popular as a reliable way to stream classic NBC shows like The Office and 30 Rock, plus new shows and movies, live news and sports. Peacock is a bit unique in that it’s both an on-demand streaming service like Hulu or Netflix while also offering a selection of live TV channels, despite costing much less than any of the best live TV streaming services. Even if it costs less, you’ll still need a premium subscription, which probably leaves you wondering, is there a Peacock TV free trial? Let’s find out.
Just like there’s no Disney Plus free trial, as of now, there’s no Peacock TV free trial for the paid plans. The paid Peacock plans include the Premium and Plus tiers, which ring in at $5 per month or $10 per month, respectively. These packages give you complete access to the full library of Peacock shows, channels, and movies. The only differences between the two is that the $10/month Peacock Plus plan is ad-free and allows you to download and watch select shows and movies offline. You can still try Peacock without paying, though — keep reading to find out how.
A Peacock TV free trial period would actually be kind of redundant, because you don’t actually have to pay anything to sign up and try it out. Only Peacock Premium and Peacock Plus are paid. The basic Peacock service is totally free, and there’s no trial period. You don’t even have to enter any credit card information to sign up as you often do to get free trials like the Hulu free trial. Just use your email address to create your account and you’re ready to stream. The free Peacock plan unsurprisingly gives you a more limited selection of shows and movies to stream, but there’s still more than 10,000 hours’ worth of content for you to browse.
A selection of that free content includes Downton Abbey, Psych, and 30 Rock, so you’ve got plenty to bite into with Peacock before deciding if you want to upgrade to one of the paid tiers.

There’s no free or reduced Peacock TV deal going on right now, but compared to some of the other services the regular prices are reasonable. You can sign up for Peacock Premium for just $5 per month. Peacock Premium is a great value even at its normal price considering that you get a lot of on-demand shows and movies as well as live TV channels, so it’s a solid bargain. You can always go with Peacock Plus for $10 per month, as well, which allows you to download select titles and watch them offline, and also removes a majority of the ads you’d see with the lower tier plan. Whatever the case, now’s a great time to sign up for Peacock TV to catch some of its exclusive content.
