How to Cancel a Peacock Subscription

It When NBC’s streaming service Peacock came out in early 2020, it was a huge hit right away. is one of the biggest competitors in the streaming market because it has 28 million subscribers and a wide range of content.

Still, if you want to cancel your subscription for any reason or just switch from a paid plan to a free one, we’ll show you how to do that in this article. We’ll also show you how to switch to a higher or lower tier.

How to Cancel Your Peacock Subscription

One amusing fact about Peacock is that even if you cancel your Premium plan, your account will not be deactivated. You will instead be put on the free, limited plan.

Here’s how to cancel payments and take care of your subscription:

  1. Use your web browser to sign in to the Peacock site.
  2. Click on the picture of your account in the top right corner.
  3. Click Change Plan in Account Settings. The plan you have right now will stand out.
  4. Find the option that says “Peacock Free” and click on it.
  5. Click on “Change Plan” to stop paying for Peacock and go back to the free plan.

You’ll get an email letting you know that the payments have been stopped. The date that your paid plan will end will be in the email. Don’t forget that this doesn’t delete your account; it just stops payments for now. If you change your mind, you can use the same method to start your paid subscription again.

Cancelling Peacock on Mobile

Peacock can be used on your phone, just like most other popular streaming services. The native mobile apps are available for both Android and iOS, so we’ll talk about how to cancel on both platforms in this section.

Cancelling Peacock on Android

You can also manage your subscriptions through the browser on your phone, but there is also a Peacock app for Android. But we won’t be canceling the subscription through the app. We’ll use Google Play instead:

  1. Start the Google Play app and go to your profile.
  2. Tap Subscriptions after choosing Payments & Subscriptions.
  3. Find Peacock in the list of active subscriptions and tap on it.
  4. Tap Cancel Subscription on your phone to stop paying for Peacock Premium.

Just like with iOS, you can only manage your subscriptions if you signed up through the mobile app. If you created your Peacock account through the website, you’ll also have to use the website to stop payments and manage your subscription, as we’ve already said.

Using iOS to Manage Peacock’s Account

Through the iOS app on your iPhone or iPad, it’s easy to change the level of your subscription. Here’s how to do it in a few easy steps, but keep in mind that you can only do it this way if you signed up for Peacock through its iOS app:

  1. Open up the Apple App Store and use your Apple ID to sign in.
  2. Find the section called “Subscriptions,” and then tap “Manage.”
  3. Find Peacock on the list, tap Edit, and then choose Cancel Subscription.

Summary of Peacock Plans

The US, the UK, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy are all able to use the Peacock streaming service. If you live in one of these places, you can try Peacock for free. If you can’t, you’ll need a VPN to get to it.

There are three levels of service, each with different prices and features:

  1. The free level has some features.
  2. Peacock Premium costs $5 a month and has unlimited content. Ads pay for it.
  3. Peacock Premium Plus is a $10-a-month unlimited plan with no ads.

The Final Word!

Like any other service that requires a subscription, Peacock is easy to stop using. Keep in mind that when you cancel, you stop making payments. Your last payment to Peacock won’t be given back to you. But when you cancel the service, at least you don’t lose access to it completely. This is one way that Peacock is better than more popular services like Netflix.
