Peacock: How to Choose Specific Episode

If you have previously watched a TV series using the Peacock app, then go back to watch the show later, the app will throw you right back into the episode you were watching. This threw me off when I wanted to watch a different episode. This isn’t how many other apps work. Usually, you are given a choice of which episode to watch when you open a series. But Peacock doesn’t work that way.

So, how in the heck do you simply choose a specific episode to watch in the Peacock app? I figured it out, and here are the steps.

  1. Open the Peacock app.
  2. Choose the show you wish to watch. If you have watched the series before, Peacock will likely start playing the episode you last watched.
  3. Press Up on the directional pad on the remote. A menu will appear. Press Up again on the remote to display the menu selections.
  4. Press Right on the directional pad 3 times to toggle the selection to More Episodes.

There you have it! You can now choose a specific episode to watch.

I hope these steps helped somebody else out there. Let me know how it worked out for you in the comments.

  1. I figured this out too.

    Peacock has the WORST user interface of all the streaming apps.

    It’s like the designer/programmer doesn’t watch any series or re-watch series. They must be super young; missing lifelong experiences.

    I’ve started creating a unique profile for each series I’m watching. It helps reduce screen touches. But, sadly, it doesn’t help with episode selection.

    I’ve not met anyone—I spoken with over a hundred friends, family, colleagues—Everyone hates the Peacock app experience especially series/episodes selection.
