Ever since the NBC Peacock app was first announced, Amazon Fire TV users have been begging for this app. Sadly, Fire TV users have not had any luck getting the Peacock app. Both Amazon and NBCUniversal have not been able to make a deal, which has kept this app away from Fire TV users.
Since no deal was ever made, cord-cutters who use Amazon Fire TV devices have been forced into sideloading this app. Sideloading in itself has brought on many issues for cord-cutters but this could soon be over!
Surprise Announcement Regarding NBC Peacock App and Amazon Fire TV:
