If you want to save some money on a Peacock Premium account – or just don’t want to go through the hassle of creating your own – then it is possible to share your Peacock streaming with friends and family.
Find out here everything you need to know to do some simultaneous streaming. We also have similar guides for the likes of
Disney Plus and
HBO Max. Alternatively, why not check out the

Password sharing on a Peacock account
The first thing you need to be aware of is that there are no profiles on Peacock, which means that sharing is truly caring on this platform. You’ll have to be happy with having all your previous watch lists and favourites available to view by everyone who is on your account.
If you’ve not done so yet, you’ll need to create an account on Peacock. You can
sign up for Peacock Free on the website by just inputting your email address and a password, or opt for Peacock Premium by either paying $4.99 per month for ad-supported content or $9.99 for ad-free.
Then, all you need to do is share the login details with whoever you want to be on the account. As a word of caution, be sure to not share a password that is also used for personal or sensitive use, such as your banking.
There is also a limit on how many streams you can have going at one time. Peacock only supports three simultaneous streams on both free and premium accounts. Whilst this isn’t a lot, there is no limit to the number of devices you can register to the account, so you’ll just have to coordinate your schedules if you’re sharing an account with more than three people.
If you try to stream at the same time as three others on your account, you won’t be able to watch anything. You’ve been warned.
How to split payment for an account
You can only register one payment option for NBC Peacock, so if you want to split payment for a Premium account you’ll need to work out an option for this. One viable option is via PayPal – get payees to pay their share to your PayPal and pay for your subscription via this option rather than your credit card, and then their cost will go directly to the account.
Alternatively, you can look into other cost-splitting options. You can ask people to set up a monthly standing order, or apps such as
Monzo are also useful for splitting evenly between an awkward number.
