PeacockTV is a streaming service from NBC Universal in the United States. It is a fantastic service for those who love good TV series, movies, and live sports, such as Premier League football. But, how can you watch PeacockTV abroad? And how can you pay for PeacockTV outside the United States?
I have already written an article on how you can watch PeacockTV abroad. It is quite easy and by using one of the few VPNs that work, you can easily stream and watch the PeacockTV content abroad. But, if you want to stream the Premium content, you will need to pay for your subscription. And to pay for your subscription, you need to have an American payment card or an American PayPal account. What can you do if you have neither of those?
How to pay for PeacockTV abroad?
In order to use PeacockTV, you need to make the service believe that you are located in the United States. For this to work, I recommend that you use the VPN services of ExpressVPN. This is a brilliant VPN for unblocking streaming services such as PeacockTV. The service can be used on computers, phones, tablets, TV, and more. Purchase a subscription, download their application, and connect to a server in the United States. You now have an American IP address and you are ready to watch PeacockTV abroad.
ExpressVPN has a 30-day full refund policy, so if you don’t like it, you can easily ask for a refund. ExpressVPN works on all the big platforms, it is extremely easy to use, and you can use one subscription on five devices at the same time. It is the fastest of all the VPNs on the market at the moment!
You are ready to watch PeacockTV abroad, but you want to pay for the Premium subscription. However, you are not allowed to pay with your MasterCard/VISA card issued outside the USA, nor are you allowed to pay with your PayPal account. What can you do? How can you pay for PeacockTV without any payment card issued in the USA?
Two ways to pay for PeacockTV without an American payment card.
Get a virtual payment card issued in the USA.
The easiest way to pay for PeacockTV is by using a service named USUnlocked. This service will provide you with a virtual payment card issued in the USA. It can be used to pay for PeacockTV, Paramount+, Hulu, and other services requiring you to have a valid US payment method. How does it work? What do you need to do for this to work properly?
- Visit the USUnlocked website and register an account.
- Create a Shipito account in order to get a mail-forwarding address in the USA. This is completely free. This isn’t necessary, but it makes things easier.
- Deposit funds to your USUnlocked account.
- As your funds arrive at your USUnlocked account, unlock your virtual card and pay for PeacockTV Premium.
For even more detailed instructions and some illustrations showing this step-by-step, take a look at the following article.
Pay with an Apple account in the USA.
Some might finds this to be a much easier solution, while others will deem this to be more complicated. Decide for yourself.
- Use the VPN and connect to a server in the United States.
- Visit Apple.com and create a brand new Apple ID.
- Set your address to be in the United States (just use a random US address creator to get one or use your Shipito address).
- Finish the registration process.
Now you need to add some money to the account, so buy a US iTunes Gift Card and redeem it to your newly created US Apple Account. When that is done, use your US Apple ID on an Apple device you own, find the PeacockTV application in the Apple Store. Download the PeacockTV application, run it, and go get a Premium subscription. You will later pay with it from the money added to the iTunes Gift Card.
Both methods might sound complicated, but they are not really that hard. You will need to use the VPN to actually stream the content on PeacockTV, and it is well worth it. At the time of writing, I am watching Tour de France live race on PeacockTV, and in a few days, I will watch a Premier League match. Besides that, I can also stream all the episodes of Monk and Downton Abbey on PeacockTV, so it is well worth the pain. The gain is much higher!
