So apparently you get the discounted rate of $9.99 for 4 months no matter what now. Their promo code of PEACOCKMANIA doesn’t work and the deal is automatic, so what was the point of advertising the promo code every week for 2 months? Then I tried to sign up and I already had an account from the free version so it didn’t let me. Then I had to upgrade my account instead and the autofill inexplicably didn’t work. So after filling in everything again they finally took my money. And the platform sucks. My wife is using the account to watch the reboot of “Saved By the Bell” right now so it’s clearly money well spent.
I had a very similar problem. Peacock insists that I automatically have Peacock Premium since I'm an Xfinity customer, and it won't allow me to use the promo code to pay $2.50 a month for the first 4 months. It acts like I already have access to everything for free as an Xfinity customer, but that can't be right.
