Titles on the service include fan favorites like “Yellowstone” and “The Office.” New content coming to Peacock this fall includes original series “Last Light,” “Vampire Academy,” “A Friend of the Family,” “The Calling,” “Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin” and “The Best Man: The Final Chapters.”

Yes, it's called getting the ad tier and then using an ad-blocker.

Well that’s close at least. I wouldn’t watch it through a web browser but if someone can come up with a Kodi app it might work (already does with Hulu and several free services).

There's no ad-free deal. But after you sign-up for the $1.99 deal, you can add-on the Ad-Free option for $5/month. Just go into the Account section and click on "Change or Cancel Plan".

All you have to do is cancel. Wait for your subscription to lapse then resub with the promotion.

I can’t get 4k working on any device other than my Fire 4k stick, even though it stays 4k/hdr on all of them.

There is no HDR yet from what I have seen. Any thing that is labeled 4K UHD is just 4K SDR.

It's a start, though.


EDIT - I am using an ATV4k / PS5.

Shrek is listed as 4K HDR as is Jurassic World: Dominion (both versions). Neither played in HDR on my AppleTV.

As usual with Peacock, the FAQ remains to be helpless:

https://www.peacocktv.com/help/article/4k-uhd

It tells you to check your device for 4K playback and only compatible devices play back in 4K.

What kind of runaround answer is this? Peacock’s technicians should have a list to reference. Unless they never test the updates.
