Peacock TV is one of the must-have streaming services for cord-cutters. While NBC’s flagship service is available on most smart TV platforms, they are not completely bug-free. Many Fire TV Stick users complained about Peacock TV not working on the Fire TV Stick. If you have faced the same, here are some solutions and fixes we found.

1. Check Network Connection

Most Peacock TV titles are available in 4K resolution. You need to have a reliable high-speed internet connection on your Fire TV Stick to stream such titles without any glitches. FireStick comes with a default tool to confirm an active internet connection and its speeds. Here’s how to use it.

1. Head to Fire TV Stick home and move to the Settings menu.

2. Select Network.

3. Click your current Wi-Fi network and press the play/pause button on the FireStick remote.

4. Check the current network connection. You can run a speed test from the same menu and confirm a high-speed network.  

2. Restart Fire TV Stick

Most FireStick users keep their devices on sleep so that it’s ready to use in a couple of seconds. You can reboot your device and try playing your favorite titles on Peacock TV.

Whether on a Peacock Premium or a Peacock Premium Plus plan, you are allowed up to three simultaneous connections. You may soon hit the device limit if you have shared your Peacock TV plan with friends and family.

You need to sign out from unnecessary devices or change the Peacock TV password to prevent others from piggybacking on your active plan. A simple but yet solution when Peacock TV is not working on Fire Stick.

If the Peacock TV servers are down, you face issues with loading the app content on FireStick and other devices. To confirm the issue, head to Downdetector and search for Peacock TV. If you notice high outage graphs and user comments complaining about the same, wait for some time.
