    So I,m paying almost 200 a month tv and internet and don’t get a lousy 5$ service  this is stupid.

  • You should still be able to receive access through either their website or the app on a mobile device with just regular TV Essential but would need a Contour 2 receiver or a Contour stream player in order to be able to watch the Peacock app directly through a cable box.

    Requirements:

    Any level of Cox Internet service.
    Any level of TV service when using the Peacock app through any tablet, smartphone, or online.
    For the interactive Receiver app, you must have Contour 2 or Contour Stream Player service.

      Unfortunately, your Cox plan is not eligible for Peacock Premium, but you can still enjoy your Peacock Free account!

        You must have Contour TV or CoxTV to get access to the Peacock app. If you only have the Basic Box (Mini box) you cannot get access to the Peacock app.
