    Does anyone know if the TIVO Roamio will get the Peacock Network, like Pluto TV app (which by the way won't load up), Netflix or Amazon Prime?

    Ask NBC. That’s who would decide.

    Highly unlikely they consider the number of TiVo subscribers worth the effort. So I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    Thanks for the replies to my question about Peacock. As to PLUTO TV, I waited 10 minutes to load then gave up. While I've accessed PLUTO via my computer, I'd prefer the convenience of getting through TIVO especially since it's connected to to projector. The reality is I have a lot of content to fill my time between Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu.

    I have a 1tb Roamio with my smart LG TV. Only use the Tivo peanut remote. Supposedly LG has included Peacock on their app list. Is there a way to access Peacock tv without disconnecting the TiVo in order for me to get to the smart lineup on the LG? Have not had any luck with the input button.

    You will need to use the LG remote, unfortunately unless you go out and buy some uber-remote, the two will have to work side to side.

    Press the Home button on the LG remote, find the LG Content Store, and from there find Peacock along with so much more. Unless you have an LG that's more than a few years old, there's quite a bit of the streamers there... I've been accessing Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Peacock, and several more via the LG built in apps. You do NOT have to disconnect the TiVo or any other devices.

    For what it's worth, I am a Comcast customer, and signed up for Peacock free access. On iPad/Computer, and can Chromecast to the TV. It would be nice if TiVo added an app for it.

    Peacock is NBC and NBC is Comcast which is Xfinity so no...there will be no Peacock app for Tivo. The 2 companies are at odds on many things and neither one is gonna do anything that may even appear to help the other. Of course the little guy gets hurt. I will say Peacock is free to Comcast customers and its a pretty good service.
