Peacock TV is a popular streaming service for cord-cutters, offering a wide range of TV shows, sports events, and channels. However, some users have reported issues with Peacock TV not working on their Amazon Fire TV Stick. If you’re facing the same problem, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with some simple solutions and fixes.

1. Check Network Connection

To stream high-resolution content on Peacock TV without any glitches, you need a reliable high-speed internet connection. Here’s how to check your network connection on the Fire TV Stick:

  1. Go to the Settings menu on your Fire TV Stick.
  2. Select Network.
  3. Click on your current Wi-Fi network and press the play/pause button on your Fire TV Stick remote.
  4. Check the current network connection and run a speed test to ensure a high-speed network.

2. Restart Fire TV Stick

Sometimes, a simple restart can resolve many issues. Try rebooting your Fire TV Stick and then play your favorite titles on Peacock TV. Here’s how to restart your Fire TV Stick:

  1. Go to FireStick Settings and open My Fire TV.
  2. Select Restart.

3. Check Peacock TV Subscription

If your Peacock TV subscription has expired, you may face issues with playing the app content. Here’s how to check your Peacock TV subscription details and update your payment details if required:

  1. Head to the Peacock TV website and sign in with your account details.
  2. Go to your account and check your subscription due date. If it has expired, renew it and try again.

4. Check Simultaneous Connections

Whether you’re on a Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus plan, you’re allowed up to three simultaneous connections. If you have shared your Peacock TV plan with friends and family, you may soon hit the device limit. To prevent others from piggybacking on your plan, sign out from unnecessary devices or change your Peacock TV password.

5. Check Peacock TV Servers

If the Peacock TV servers are down, you may face issues with loading the app content on your Fire TV Stick. To confirm if the servers are experiencing issues, visit Downdetector and search for Peacock TV. If there are high outage graphs and user comments complaining about the same, wait for some time until the servers are back up and running.

6. Force Stop Peacock TV

You can force-stop Peacock TV on your Fire TV Stick and then try again. Here’s how:

  1. Go to FireStick Settings and open Applications.
  2. Select Manage Installed Applications.
  3. Scroll to Peacock TV.

7. Clear Peacock TV Cache

Peacock TV collects cache in the background to improve app performance. However, if the cache becomes corrupt, it can cause issues with streaming on-demand content. Clearing the cache can help resolve this problem. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Applications menu in FireStick Settings.
  2. Select Manage Installed Applications.
  3. Scroll to Peacock TV.
  4. Hit Clear cache.

8. Reinstall Peacock TV

If none of the previous solutions worked, you may need to reinstall the Peacock TV app. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Applications menu on your Fire TV Stick and select Peacock TV.
  2. Press the options menu and click Uninstall from the bottom right corner.
  3. Head to the Amazon AppStore, download Peacock TV, sign in with your account details, and try again.

9. Update Fire OS

An outdated Fire OS build can cause issues with installed apps on your Fire TV Stick. Make sure to install the latest Fire OS version to ensure compatibility. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the My Fire TV menu in FireStick Settings.
  2. Select About.
  3. Select check for updates and install the latest software version on your device.

By following these simple fixes, you can get Peacock TV up and running on your Amazon Fire TV Stick. Enjoy your favorite TV shows, sports events, and channels hassle-free. Remember to disable any VPN connection since Peacock TV is only available in the US region.
