    No you would have to have an app to support that.

    You might be able to find an app if you have a Roku or Firetv etc. streaming player.

    Apparently, this comes with the "X1" service which is evidently another name for using their DVD/settop box. I use a cable card, so I guess I'm out of luck.

    I'm pretty sure you just have to be a Comcast cable customer to get Peacock, but you will have to run the app on something other than a Tivo. I installed the app on my AppleTV and it works fine.

    This is the list of devices/platforms it runs on from the Comcast site:

    Thanks. I went to the Microsoft store to see if they have a Peacock app for my Windows 10 computer. They don't.

    Edit: I went to the Peacock site, created an account and given access to Peacock premium. There is no app... apparently Edge IS the app.

    From the post that you quoted:
    You don't need an app if you have access to modern web browsers on a variety of operating systems.
