An easy way to see if other people have issues you’re facing is using Downdetector. This website allows people to report issues with an app, and it works with several different things, whether it’s Discord, Facebook, or Peacock. If there are problems, you’ll see a massive spike in reported errors at the current time. You can also check social media sites such as Twitter/X to look for keywords such as “Peacock down” and the Peacock subreddit to see if other Redditors are complaining about it.
Of course, that’s not going to magically fix the issues you’re facing, but it will let you know you’re not alone with them. Prolonged outages with streaming services typically aren’t all that common, but that doesn’t mean they don’t happen.
Peacock’s help page says to close the app on your device, along with all other open apps, and then reopen Peacock if you’re having problems. Another suggestion it gives is to unplug or power down your advice, wait 20 seconds, and then reboot it. You can also clear your device’s cache and data if that doesn’t solve the problem. As a last-ditch effort, you can uninstall and reinstall the app. The process of reinstallation shouldn’t take too long since it’s a small app. If none of that works, then you’ll have to wait for Peacock to solve the issue on their end.
