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.

For those of you with Peacock, how is the 4k streaming? Do they have Dolby Atmos? From my basic searches it looks like a no go but thought I'd ask those that have the service.

Haven’t gotten Atmos on anything, and I wouldn’t have known anything was 4K if you hadn’t told me.

That sucks. I was really hoping to watch Halloween Ends at home and have some friends over. Looks like it will take a trip to the theater later in the month.

Re: Peacock -- NBC Universal streaming service

Assuming you have good theaters- the ones here don’t even list if they have Atmos and they’ll probably show Halloween letterboxed with no masking anyways. Might as well stay home.

Atmos support has not been added yet. They finally added 4K and HDR, you’ll see it badged under the description.

However, good luck figuring out if it is in 4K. I never got the HDR notification to come on for any of the badged HDR content on my Apple TV or XBox Series X.
