I hope this post helped you figure out why your chromecast isn’t connecting to Peacock and now it works so you can enjoy watching it! We use a Samsung TV and I guess it doesn’t work unless you have something like Chromecast which is very cheap anyway and worth having to stream YouTube TV and other shows. I highly recommend it.

I downloaded the Peacock app to watch Escape to the Chateau, a show that so many people have been telling me to watch and I finally took the time to download and figure out how to stream it – WORTH IT! I was binge watching it like crazy!

Please let me know if this worked for you – it helps me rank better on Google and hopefully this will pop up elsewhere in searches so we can help everyone enjoy using Peacock app with Chromecast! Happy watching!  xx
