    Obviously it’s bad that you can’t add an app/tile to a Roku smart TV & this ‘can’t use an HDMI lead’ double sucks (surely there is a hack to get around this? There’s always a way!).

    Meant I was forced to try it on an XBox. Never really used that for streaming but it worked fine. You can add the PeacockTV app and there is actually a lot of good stuff on there (not just the football).

    When the new season starts I’ll guess we’ll see what happens when it comes to watching matches on delay. As West Coast people have said that is a right deal breaker if you have to watch it live – or wait ‘ages’ until the re-run shows up.

    If they sort these sort of usability issues out then $5 a month is about the same as Gold (less if you can cancel it when the season ends). As long as I can watch every Saints game I’ll be happy.

    All a right farce though. Wish I didn’t like sport. Could ditch the lot then!

    Question. Peacock so far offer only live games and extended highlights. Will they offer a replays for subscribers who missed live games? It kinda disappointing not to have this option absolutions maddening considering nbc gold is going away. Also you can’t pause live stream or start from beginning if you missed it. Espn+ set up so much better compared to this.

      There was one Arsenal game a couple of weeks ago that was on Peacock. It showed up there days before gameday. I clicked on it and then clicked ‘add to watchlist’. The night after the game aired live, I was able to find and play it. I don’t know if this will work in the future and/or this is a way to “DVR” matches or a way to replay or whatever, but it worked, that one time.
      Yesterday, since the games weren’t added into website till last minute and I was working, I wasn’t able to do this and don’t know if it was an option. Based on yesterdays coverage though, I’m not happy with Peacock. Games showing up last minute, not knowing if I can record them and if I can will they show up far enough in advance to set up the recording, replays available shortly after, etc. Lot of unknowns and again, not impressed.

      I hope Christopher can contact someone there and get more answers for us as there are a lot of questions.

    Looked at Peacock today. If you can’t watch live then it’s only highlights for you. No stream after the game has finished.

    Anyone living on West coast is going to suffer with 4:3o and, at least for me, 7:00 kick offs.

    Vey disappointing.

    Why is it that we seem to get great football coverage then they go and #&%$ it up!

    Watched today’s games on Peacock on my LG TV. The picture quality was like night and day compared to the blurry juddery feed I have grown to expect from NBC Gold.

      I had problems with the app on an Apple TV. It crashed three times and one other time the picture froze with the audio still going. I guess some hiccups are to be expected at launch.

      It is a better picture than the awful one from Gold, but it looks like it is locked at 30 fps. When the games are in NBCSN, the picture is much more fluid through my Hulu Live subscription. I think many of the channels were upgraded to 60 fps earlier in the year, so I hope they do the same on the peacock app.

    Unlike Gold, we can’t use external monitors. I have THREE additional ones attached to my MacBook Pro (2 x 30″, 1 x 37″) – I’m damned if I’m going to be forced to watch it on one 15″.

    No ability to record Peacock games, so those of us on the West Coast are supposed to get up for 4.30am starts, or wait until the next day to watch them!

    Let’s hope this isn’t the future and that NBCSN isn’t cut, and with it the handful of games being shown in 4K (without, thank goodness, Arlo White’s non-stop verbal diarrhea).

    PeacockTV.com rejects valid configurations for NBCSports.com. It told me I had to disconnect my external monitor. Like hell I do…

    • John G.

      July 15, 2020 at 3:16 pm

      Gold accepts my current setup. Peacock had better do the same by the launch of Peacock as a Gold replacement… or else.

      The entire point is to make it so that you can’t work around their dispute with ROKU or FireTV. This is to purposefully make it so you can’t watch on your TV with an HDMI cord. It isn’t an “accident” or a “glitch.” It’s intentional.

      • Ritchie

        Do you have a chromecast? They are like $30, I think.

      I was curious, HDMI’d up the laptop with the stream running live, and it popped up the Puss ‘n Boots pic with that message. This is ridiculous. I would understand if you had an option to purchase the rights for TV streaming, so this keeps you down to small screens with a cheaper price, but if there is no option for TV streaming at all, why would they hamstring the user with a smaller product, if they aren’t given an option for a TV streaming product.

      I didn’t get Gold (with Stoke City gone), and I’m certainly not getting Peacock, if it can’t stream on TV.

        You have to wonder who will blink 1st. Roku seems to hold all the cards as they are the #1 streaming device. Hell im subscribing to Cbs all access 99.99 a year and Hulu / Disney/ ESPN plus 18.99 a month yes commercial free for both. So i wont be subscribing to Peacock since we would need a live service to watch (all) the matches anyways. So no more Premier league for me

    NBC botched the roll out of Gold badly. Today’s roll out of Peacock isn’t the best, either. The link for the noon ET pregame show didn’t appear until 15 minutes into the show. The links for the three 1 PM games didn’t appear until 12:59. Since there is not as yet a Peacock app for android TV’s I watched the games on Gold. However, throughout the first half the link for the City game wasn’t working. Of the five streaming services I subscribe to the Gold picture is the worst. Today seems even worse than normal.

      The app should be available in the App Store–I found it last night.

  10. David the Yank

    My principal issue with NBCSN vs Peacock/Gold is that if today’s matches (at least some of them) were on NBCSN, I could record with my online TV subscription, start games a bit late if I am busy with work, etc. But with Gold, and now Peacock, there have been issues with joining games in progress and not being able to start at the beginning. And then sometimes very long (and unexplained!) delays in watching matches that have just ended. This is just AWFUL service when you are PAYING expressly for that content!

    • nosferatu

      July 15, 2020 at 1:09 pm

      This has been my biggest pet peeve with Gold and it’s crazy to think they’re not improving it with the move to Peacock (not yet, at least). Pretty much every other sports streaming service I’ve used, from MLB to NHL to ESPN+, has DVR controls for live games, and replays are pretty much instantaneous. So we’re not talking about some wildly advanced technology here.

    Those of us who have subscribed to NBC Gold for the matches NBC has not shown on NBCSN or NBC were just informed that for next (2020-21) season, Gold is defunct, and all of these overflow games will move to Peacock Premium. Best I can tell Premium will be offered at $5/month, or free if you pay for Xfinity. Chris, is this how you see things?

    • Christopher Harris

      July 15, 2020 at 9:10 am

      Correct on all counts, yes.

      • John G.

        July 15, 2020 at 3:18 pm

        But will Peacock Premium get the same support as Gold? For example, today, I got told by PeacockTV.com that I couldn’t connect an external monitor _AFTER_ I had already logged in to Premium. If they are claiming those who took advantage of the “early” option discount aren’t going to be able to use desktop monitors… mine is not an HDTV acting like a monitor… that is going to be a deal breaker.

        To make things clearer… it is clear that the “free” Peacock service will not allow HDTVs or desktop monitors to show games… just built-in monitors. On mobile devices, that would mean just the device’s monitor… another deal-killer for an iPhone that might be acceptable (barely) on an iPad.

    Anyone know how to find the matches on Peacock? I’m searching for them through Comcast and there is nothing there for today, July 15. Only highlights in Sports menu, nothing in Search menu, nothing in Browse menu, etc. 🙁

    • Christopher Harris

      July 15, 2020 at 9:10 am

      They’ll be there. When I used Peacock to watch Bournemouth-Palace in the first-ever Peacock game, they had it front-and-center on the Featured section. I’m sure they’ll push that live closer to Noon ET today.

      • Ritchie

        July 15, 2020 at 12:26 pm

        How do you view peacock games from last week on demand? I can’t seem to find them anywhere.

        Thanks!

          Peacock free version won’t include any replays.

          Peacock Premium ($5/month) will have replays of non-televised games available the next day.

    Free for a day is great… except for the people that paid for it.

    Also, why in the heck is Arsenal v Liverpool on NBC Gold? They already had their stretch on NBC Gold including the first Mercyside Derby!

  15. Ritchie

    July 8, 2020 at 2:49 pm

    Dumb this down for me:

    So 7/15’s EPL games will be on the lowest-tier, “free” version of Peacock…not the Premium version that is included with Comcast subscriptions, correct?

    However, the “free” version of Peacock will NOT have EPL games going forward after that, correct?

    • Ritchie

      July 8, 2020 at 3:00 pm

      To clarify, I mean the 7/15 games will be on the free and “premium” Peacock, but after 7/15, EPL will only be on Premium. Correct?

      • blahblahblah

        July 8, 2020 at 3:31 pm

        I’m not sure if even NBC/Peacock knows………

        • Christopher Harris

          July 8, 2020 at 6:17 pm

          Ritchie, the future looks like even more Premier League games will be heading to Peacock.

          The benefit for NBC is that they can pivot very quickly and add games to Peacock whenever they want to. And it feels like they’re making some relatively last minute decisions on those programming choices.

  16. John G.

    July 8, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    How long before live PL games are only available on Peacock and not on NBC, NBCSN and NBC Sports Gold? I’m surprised they haven’t done it already! The irony of Comcast being involved in this is their arrogant disregard for access to the same content via cable box several years ago. First, they limited it to X1 and then pretty much said “you’ll get it if it’s working and if it isn’t working, don’t bother calling us… stream an Internet connection to your TV instead”.

    • John G.

      July 8, 2020 at 2:31 pm

      What they are doing this time is making PL games only available while Peacock is free. I meant doing it when it isn’t.

      July 8, 2020 at 6:29 pm

      Doubt it – this seems like a one-time only ‘stunt’ to get people to sample Peacock on its launch day

    • Yespage

      July 13, 2020 at 4:59 pm

      NBCSN can’t afford to lose that content, unless they can displace it, which is doubtful in that time range.

      • Azer

        July 13, 2020 at 10:15 pm

        I wish all games would go on Peacock. There are no commercials running on the screen like you see on NBCSN. Instead you’ll get premier league productions, an IMG produced company.
