  • You can make a free Peacock account to watch basic content or receive full access to all of the streaming service's content for a monthly fee.
  • Peacock is a streaming service from NBCUniversal allowing people with an account to stream content from NBCUniversal and other partners.
  • You can sign up for a Peacock account on a computer, a mobile device, or a streaming device.

Peacock is relatively new among content streamers, but it's making a name for itself due to the content it has available.

You have a few options for how to watch content on Peacock, though a free account will mostly be limited to NBCUniversal content like the first two seasons of "The Office." To watch shows such as Paramount's hit "Yellowstone" or ITV's "Downton Abbey," you'll need to sign up for a premium paid account.

Here's how to create either a free or paid Peacock account through the mobile app, Peacock website, or streaming device.
