NBC Peacock is now available to stream in the US (though you can
access it in the UK through using a VPN). But if you’re looking to watch all those NBC classics and new Peacock exclusives offline, is it possible?
Sadly, the answer is no. According to
Peacock’s help section, this isn’t something that the platform currently provides. However, the company is looking into it for the future.
If it does, we expect downloads to maybe be limited to Android and iOS, just as they are on the likes of
HBO Max and
Disney Plus. They could also be limited strictly to those on the Peacock Premium tier, rather than Peacock Free.
If you’re searching for a workaround, the best option we can suggest is using screen-recording software. Whilst this isn’t exactly a perfect replacement for downloading or offline viewing, it will allow you to re-watch your recordings on your laptop/PC without the need for the internet.
You can capture whatever is playing on your device and store it on your PC to watch later on. Some of our recommended screen recording software includes
Bandicam, with the latter offering both free and paid versions.
However, we must stress that these recordings should only be played in your home, on your own PC, and not be shared with anyone else or on any other device.
If you’ve not yet signed up to the platform, you can sign up for Peacock for free by
heading to the website and inputting your email address and a password. You can also choose to sign up for a paying subscription, which gives you more access to exclusive originals, lots more series and films and sporting events such as the majority of the Premier League matches.
Peacock Premium costs either $4.99 per month (or $49.99 per year) for ad-supported content, or $9.99 per month (or $99.99 per year) for ad-free content. Both offer a seven-day free trial.
