- Use the search bar to search for “Peacock.”
- Select the Peacock app and click “Install.”

that’s all you have to do.
What to Do If You Can’t Find the Peacock App on Your LG TV Store?
Typically, Peacock is available in almost every smart TV brand including LG.
But there are some limitations from their end.
There is an easy way to check this!
Simply go to the LG App Store and search for the Peacock app. If it’s available for download, your TV is compatible.
However, If your LG TV doesn’t support the Peacock app, you can use any of the following streaming devices to watch Peacock on your TV.
- Amazon Fire TV Stick
- Google Chromecast
- Apple TV
Connect any of these streaming devices to your TV and download the Peacock app.
You can then sign in with your Peacock account and start watching.
I installed it, but Peacock isn’t working on my LG TV
In this case, compatibility isn’t the problem here, but rather there seems to be an issue with the firmware, app’s core file, or other software malfunctions.
Step 1: Fix the software malfunction
Software failure is quite common in televisions, however, it often impacts the TV’s functionality and operation.
To fix this, all you need to do is reset the power; nothing more complicated is required.
- Unplug the TV from the power source.
- Wait for at least two minutes.
- During this time, press and hold the TV’s power button for roughly 15 seconds.
- Once done, turn the TV back on.
Now re-open the app and check if Peacock is working now.
Step 2: Fix the Corrupted App Files
If the app simply loads indefinitely, won’t launch, or keeps crashing, problem is with the app!
Software errors may also be to blame for this problem, but if a power reset doesn’t resolve it, the app’s internal core file is probably corrupted.
In such a case, uninstalling and then reinstalling the app might help!
Press the remote’s Home button and then go to the LG Content Store. From there, search for “Peacock” and select the Peacock app. Remove it and then reinstall it again.
Once you have uninstalled the app, restart the TV. Similarly, after reinstalling the app, reboot the TV once again.
