So let’s get started with the installation.

Install Peacock TV on FireStick

Peacock TV can be installed in two ways:

1. Via the Amazon App Store (if you live in one of the regions served).

2. Download it using the Downloader program (to unblock it in your region).

Then, we’ll walk you through installing the Peacock TV app from the Amazon App Store.

In the second approach, we’ll walk you through the steps to install the program using the Downloader app.

Let’s get started.

Method 1: Install Peacock TV from the Amazon App Store.

Follow the steps below to get Peacock TV on FireStick from the Amazon App Store:

Again, this method will only work if you live in the United States or one of the other countries that Peacock TV serves. For any other country or location, please proceed to Procedure 2 in the next section.

1. Go to Find then Search on your Firestick’s home screen.

FireStick Home Screen

5. Wait for Peacock TV to finish downloading and installing.

6. You have installed Peacock TV successfully! Start streaming after you open the application.

7. That’s all. You have successfully installed Peacock TV on your FireStick.

Your FireStick is ready to stream your favorite material as soon as you install the necessary apps. However, before you begin, please be aware that whatever you stream online is visible to your ISP and the government. This means that watching free movies, TV shows, and sports may get you in some trouble.

However, there is a perfect way to disguise all of your streaming activity from your Internet Service Provider and the government. All you require is a reliable FireStick VPN.

VPN will hide your IP address and allow you to avoid online surveillance, Internet Speed throttling by your ISP, and unblock geo-restrictions content.

We personally use and advise ExpressVPN as it is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of streaming apps and is very simple to install on FireStick.


Method 2: Sideload Peacock TV on FireStick Using Downloader
