The very first step is to install a VPN to unlock Peacock TV if you’re not located in the US after which we’d proceed to install it.

Note: Connecting to a US-based server will allow you to use the Peacock TV app from anywhere in the world despite the fact that it is only restricted to the US.

Using a VPN connection has many necessary benefits. It masks your IP address so you can surf and stream without having to worry about malware attacks. It also stops the government, your ISP, and hackers from tracking your activity online and protects your privacy.

Therefore, it is wise to install and use Surfshark VPN to stream safely on FireStick.
