How can I watch Peacock on my TV?

Since the gods have determined that the hundreds of dollars I pay for cable TV are no longer sufficient to watch English Premier League Football (thanks NBC), how can I watch the Peacock network on my TV? I don't want to watch on my phone, tablet, laptop or computer, I want to watch on my giant TV! I don't see a Peacock app on my DVRs, so the 'free trial' that Spectrum offers doesn't seem to provide this ability. Am I wrong? Do I now have to go buy some other device or service to get this?

    Hi @DrL

    Is your TV a Smart TV? You will probably need to use the manufacters' remote control that came with the set if it is, and do an App Search for Peacock TV. Spectrum had a one year free trial, I don't know if it is still in effect. Peacock TV gives you several free options of shows, owned by NBC. If you want to unlock Preacock Premium TV, it is $4.99 a month or $49.99 a year according to Google Search.

    I wish Spectrum had a Peacock app on the DVR like they do for Netflix, YT and HBOMax. I really don't want to buy and deal with another device like a Roku, that's the whole point of cable to me. Otherwise I'd drop Spectrum and just go all streaming.

    Sup @DrL ?

    Spectrum has to get permission rights from NBC/Comcast to bring Peacock TV to their boxes.
