Peacock is now available to download on Fire TV streaming players, such as the fire TV Stick, as well as Fire TV Edition smart TVs. This brings to an end a device support issue that has been in effect since the service first launched. Thanks to the agreement, subscribers now have an additional way to access the streaming service on their preferred devices.

Peacock launched in April of last year albeit only on Comcast’s Xfinity platform and devices. By July of the same year, the service had rolled out nationwide. However, the service was somewhat limited in terms of device support at at the time, due to the lack of either a Roku or Fire TV app. Before the end of 2020, Peacock did arrive on Roku, leaving Fire TV as the only major platform without Peacock app support. That is, until now.

Peacock is now available to download on Amazon’s Fire TV platform and devices, including smart TVs running on Fire TV OS. As a result, existing subscribers can now download the Peacock app from Amazon (link) on their Fire TV devices, while those that have been waiting for Fire TV support to arrive before signing up, can now start a subscription without having to worry about device support.

The only subscribers that will remain affected by the lack of Peacock support is those still using an older Fire TV device, with the support limited to second-generation devices and newer. The app can also be downloaded on Fire tablets as well, so long as they are running a minimum of Fire OS 5.

For those now considering signing up to Peacock to watch on their Fire TV devices, there is a free plan available with limited access to shows and movies. Otherwise, consumers can choose between the $4.99 and $9.99 per month plans. While these two plans don’t differ in terms of the content, the more expensive Peacock Premium plan removes the ads.
