Peacock is one of the many streaming services available in the United States. The service has been growing steadily and has an audience base of 70 million.

Here are some reasons why the Peacock streaming service is not working:

  • The servers are down.
  • Your device has some problems.
  • The Peacock app isn’t working.
  • You have a problem with the internet connection.
  • You are in a country where Peacock is still not available.

Now that we have understood the possible causes of why Peacock seems to be not working, it is time for some fixes and here are eight ways to help you fix the Peacock TV issue.


Check the Peacock website status

You can check the status of Peacock using any third-party website, like the Downdetector page, to confirm that the servers are working fine.

Also, check the company’s social media pages for information about outages.


Try another device

It is one of the easiest solutions. If Peacock isn’t working on one device, then you can change the device. If it works perfectly on another device, then you can definitely say that your device has a problem.


Restart Peacock

If you are facing any issues with the Peacock app, you can force shut and restart the app. Usually, when you restart an app, it fixes any minor bugs, and the app works perfectly again.

Check your internet connection

If nothing works, then it is time for you to check your internet connection. Ensure that your router and modem are in working condition and not damaged. Also, ensure that the cables are secured properly in the socket. Power cycle your router and modem to fix any minor technical glitches. Keep updating the firmware for a hassle-free experience.

You can contact your Internet Service Provider to confirm any internet outage in your area. Keep your router and the device close so there are no connectivity issues.

Restart your device

You can restart the device and then try to run the Peacock website or the app again. Restarting fixes a lot of minor technical faults with the device, be it a TV, computer or mobile, and it takes only a couple of seconds.


Clear app cache

Sometimes, the Peacock app’s cache can corrupt and cause problems. To fix this, you will have to clear the cache. Follow the steps to clear the cache in Android:

  • Open Settings and then tap on Apps.
  • Tap on See all apps and then select Peacock.
  • Next, tap on Storage and cache and then tap on Clear cache.

Reinstall the Peacock app

If nothing else works, then you should consider reinstalling the Peacock app. First, uninstall the app and then reinstall it from any authorised store. You might lose any unsaved data, and you will have to log in to the app again.


Check your country

Peacock is not available in many countries. So, if you are trying to access the service from a country where Peacock isn’t supported, then you will not be able to use it, and you will have to use a VPN.

Here, we have compiled a list of 7 VPNs for PC, Mac, Android and iOS.
