NBC Peacock is the latest streaming offering from NBCUniversal that is now available to stream in the US on both free and paid tiers.
Though a version of the service will eventually be rolled out internationally via Sky, other countries will miss out on Peacock. However, there is still a way to watch through using a VPN.
VPNs (virtual private networks) assign you a new IP address, so not only can you browse the internet securely and privately, but you can also bypass geotargeting blockers by appearing as if you’re from another country.
We have full instructions on how you can login to Peacock through using a VPN. However, actually choosing which VPN is best for you can be tricky. Fortunately, we’ve rounded up the best ones, along with succinct summaries of each of their benefits.
Best VPN for NBC Peacock
Right at the top of our VPN chart sits NordVPN, featuring a large range of servers from 62 different countries (and all the US states), rapid speeds and decent pricing to boot. It’s extremely easy to use, and includes lots of premium features that rivals cannot match.
You can get NordVPN from £2.68 per month if you sign up for the three-year deal, but you can also opt for two-year, one-year, six-month and one-month plans should you prefer.

Our other top recommendation would be ExpressVPN. Though it’s a bit more expensive than Nord and other providers, the service you get in return is definitely worth the price-tag, with over thousands of servers and a promise to keep your data safe as the company does not keep any logs.
Right now ExpressVPN is offering 15 months for the price of 12, plus there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee available.

PureVPN states that they are the fastest VPN service provider available right now. It has a big range of servers - with more than 200 in over 140 countries. Though you’ll only need the US for Peacock, this will be useful for any other geo blocked sites you may want to visit.
Another easy service to work with is Surfshark, with multiple servers in many different countries (including the US) With it you also get an ad-blocker tool built in, and a MultiHop feature for added privacy.
Starting at £1.59/US$1.99 per month, it's one of the cheapest VPNs on the list.

TunnerBear looks a little different to all the other options on this list, but once you’ve got past that this service is pretty simple to use. There’s quite a few US servers, and this VPN even has a free option - though this comes at a limit of 500MB a month. Regardless, you can still try it out without spending a penny.
