OK, what service(s) do you have with Comcast? If you look at their stated policy, you don't get Peacock Premium for free with just standalone broadband service unless you also take their free Flex streaming box. This was exactly what happened with my parents. They have standalone Comcast broadband and I tried repeatedly to activate the free Premium tier for them but could not. Then I requested the free Flex box for them and as soon as that order was processed in their system (before the Flex box even shipped out), I was able to activate the free Premium tier.
Probably because I have the triple play..its some kind of package..i dont use the landline but its 40 bucks cheaper if you take it..

If you're on triple play, then I assume you have Comcast cable TV, meaning you fall in the first bullet point category I posted earlier. Comcast cable TV subscribers (at least those at or above a certain package level) automatically qualify for Peacock Premium. They don't need to have a Flex box on their account.

I still have Comcast at my house in Michigan, Broadband only, I get Peacock, activated here in Florida ( have Charter here) using my Comcast login, it is the $4.99 version, all the programming, but with Commercials.

By the way, have not used it once since I first activated it 2 months ago, just a bunch of older content I have already seen, most of it is on the OTA sub channels also.

I really didn't want it, but the pandemic stretched the EPL schedule, so I needed it to watch more Liverpool fixtures. Turns out, Peacock has an absurd amount of Alpine sports, cross country skiing, ski jump, all sorts of down hill skiing, biathlon, speed skating (both long track and short track roller derby), no announcers (but graphics), no commercials. Brilliant! Only complaint is you can't start an event over (or rewind) when live.

Don't think I've streamed anything not sports.

No idea what you like but I enjoyed Departure and The Capture as well as Yellowstone. Haven’t checked lately if there is anything new.

ESPN+ has FA Cup and the *Insert Sponsor* League Cup (all behind streaming paywall, but they provide access to almost everything).

TNT, turn CBS, did a great job of putting Champions League and Europa behind streaming paywalls.

You don't have a Flex box on your Comcast broadband account? If not, and you were able to activate the free Peacock Premium, then it was a fluke in their system. Here's the exact quote from Peacock's website:

Who is eligible to get Peacock Premium with their Xfinity subscription?
Peacock Premium is included at no additional cost for all Xfinity Flex customers and Xfinity X1 and video customers who have a subscription to Xfinity Internet or Digital Starter TV, or equivalent, or above. Peacock Premium has a $4.99/month value.

I know I had to activate the Flex box to get Peacock Premium. As soon as I got it working I put the Flex back in its shipping box and it sits until they ask for it back. The app still work even with it in the shipping box.

"The “WWE Network” branding will remain present on Peacock. WWE Network will be available on both Peacock’s premium ($4.99 per month) and ad-free ($9.99) plans, so current subscribers of the wrestling service, which costs $9.99 monthly, will actually be saving money if they opt for the $4.99 option."

My take is that Peacock is betting that all of the current subscribers will stay(why wouldn't they, they can pay the same price and get all of the non WWE stuff as well) and also hoping way more wrestling fans (new subscribers) will now pay the $4.99 premium plan to get WWE and peacock programming.

Talked to a friend who works at the WWE and to his understanding yes the paid Peacock tier will get everything including the events such as WrestleMania.

The WWE network will continue to exist just not in the USA. And the 24/7 live channel they have in Canada and the UK will still exist.

It would not surprise me to see Comcast own the WWE soon.

Hmmn..... Could WWE Network-Peacock Deal Set the Stage for Comcast Buying WWE?

Yeah, I got the Flex box out of curiosity, which activated Peacock Premium for me. I didn't like the Flex or its remote either. Just clunky and bad.

For my parents, I ordered the Flex box but never even connected it to their TV. Just kept it in the box and stuck it under a bed.
