How to Watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES on Peacock
On Friday, Sept. 9 NBC’s last remaining daytime drama will end its run on the network to stream exclusively on Peacock beginning on Monday, Sept. 12. But if you’re one of those fans wondering “How do I watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES on Peacock?” we’ll try to break it down for you.
Peacock is NBC’s streaming service and will include not only brand-new episodes of DAYS but also past episodes as well as other television and movies. While it is possible to sign up for a free account, the programming on that tier is very limited, and DAYS will not be included. There is an ad-supported Peacock Premium tier that normally costs $4.99 a month, but as part of a special promotion in September for new members, the price has been slashed to just $1.99 a month for the first 12 months, or you can get an entire year for just $19.99. There is also the Peacock Plus tier which costs $9.99 a month, and allows you to watch ad-free as well as download select titles for viewing offline.
If you have a smart TV, you can simply download the Peacock app to your television and sign up there. If not, there are also various devices such as Roku and Amazon Fire sticks that will allow your television to access streaming content like Peacock. The app is also available on tablets, smartphones, and of course, on computers via web browsers at PeacockTV.com. For a full list of devices click here.
Then, beginning on Monday, Sept. 12, fans simply need to navigate to the Peacock app and select the newest episode of DAYS to start watching. New episodes will be available every weekday at 6 a.m. ET, so you can watch whenever you like during the day. The soap’s executive producer, Ken Corday, has already promised that it will be the same show that fans have known and loved for years. And in fact, episodes could actually become longer now that they no longer have to leave space for so many ads in the one-hour time slot on network television.
DAYS has been going out of its way to assure fans that nothing is changing except how you watch DAYS (unless, of course, you were one of the viewers already watching the soap on Peacock) with a series of videos featuring the cast. Like this hilarious one where Billy Flynn (Chad) discovers that Bill Hayes (Doug) and his wife, Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) don’t really need his help setting Peacock up on their TV!
We hope this helped clear some things up, but if you still have any questions about Peacock and how to continue watching DAYS on the streaming service, you can visit PeacockTV.com/Help.
