If you are looking to unblock content and watch Peacock using a VPN, then this may be good news for you!
SurfShark VPN just announced they have just unblocked Peacock with their VPN service, which means you can now watch content in the US from around the world!
What is Peacock?
Peacock is a new streaming service by NBCUniversal named after the NBC logo
Peacocks new streaming service involves content like Parks and Recreation, The Office and Law & Order: SVU
The launch date for Peacock was 15th July 2020, meaning this is a brand new service, and SurfShark have already unblocked their content using a VPN.
It is unlikely Peacock will be made available internationally, meaning you will need a VPN to watch it, if you are outside the US.
How can I watch Peacock outside the US?
Peacock has only been announced for the United States. If you want to stream Peacock outside the US, you’ll need an American IP and a VPN to provide it.
Here’s how you can stream Peacock with Surfshark:
- Sign up for Surfshark VPN
- Install it on your device of choice
- Log in & connect to a Surfshark VPN server in the US
- Stream Peacock!
That’s it! Those are the basics of a Peacock VPN.
Do I have to connect to a US server?
Yes. Peacock will be offered to American audiences only. Surfshark offers VPN servers in many US cities – you can choose any of them.
What can I watch on Peacock?
NBC is going to pull The Office from other services by 2021. Peacock will then be the only streaming service featuring the romance between Jim and Pam.
Parks and Recreation
Parks and Recreation will be removed from Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu. By October 2020, you’ll need a Peacock VPN if you want to indulge in the only hit comedy about urban planning.
Movie Franchises You Love
The Fast and The Furious, Borne, and Despicable Me series of movies will be just some of the many featured on the Peacock streaming service.
Want to rewatch Jaws, E.T., or The Breakfast Club? They will all be there on Peacock.
Do you have fond memories of Saved By The Bell, Punky Brewster, or Battlestar Galactica? Because those will receive reboots as some of the first Peacock original series.
Peacock will produce original content. Sci-fi series The Brave New World and the movie Psych 2 will be the first – but not the last.
Sports, Sports, Sports!
Peacock will open on July 15 because of the Tokyo Olympics – even if the event was postponed to 2021. Nevertheless, you’ll be able to stream it then. The Premium package will also give access to Premier League Soccer.
Early Access to Talk Shows
Peacock will air talk shows The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and Late Night With Seth Meyers hours before conventional TV.
News of Today – And Yesterday
Peacock will also broadcast NBC’s morning television show Today as part of its news lineup. Looking for something more historical? Ancient Aliens, Cold Case Files, and other favorites will be there as well – if you use a Peacock VPN.

Did you know that with Surfshark VPN, you can unlock a ton of other streaming services?
- 15+ Netflix libraries
- BBC iPlayer
- HBO Go & HBO Now
- HotStar India

Peacock will be available over the internet. So if you’re not an Xfinity or Flex user, you will likely download it like any other app or watch it in the browser like Netflix.
Note that you will need an American IP to stream Peacock outside the US. If you wish to access service anywhere else, choose the Peacock VPN that supports your device of choice.
Currently, Peacock is only available for US cable subscribers. If you’re an Xfinity client, you can find the guide to accessing Peacock streaming here.
For the rest of us, we have to wait until July 15th to find out. But whatever shape it takes, you’ll need a Peacock VPN to stream it outside the US.
Peacock will have three payment tiers:
1 – Peacock Free tier will offer access to around 7,500 hours of content, which will offer limited access to their back catalog and will be supported with ads (about 5 minutes per hour).
2 – Peacock Premium is free for Comcast and Cox cable subscribers and $4,99/mo for everyone else. It will offer full access to the content library, which is around 15,000 hours.
3 – A $9,99/mo version of Premium (also available as a $5 upgrade to Comcast cable subscribers) will be ad-free.
As a media streaming service, Peacock will not feature TV channels in the traditional sense.
However, users will be able to create their own custom channels that will show them the content they want. Peacock will also offer specialized “virtual channels,” showing only true crime dramas, indie movies, and so on.
Peacock will be streaming live sports and news, including untelevised matches of Premier League.
