Peacock Premium Plus thru Rewards

I receive Peackock Premium thru Xfinity Rewards. I also have Flex.  I read that I am unable to upgrade to Peacock Premium Plus thru Xfinity or thru Peacock at this time.
This appears to be true but thought I'd check with your team. Thank you.

I am in the same boat with you. I have contacted Xfinity and no one knows how to upgrade to ad free or access the account on "their" website like it says on peacocks website. Then when I contact peacock they state you have to go through Xfinity. I did the websites the websites from the answers and got nowhere. it seems like you can't do anything.

Thanks for your reply! Using the Peacock reward (from Xfinity) evidentally negates any possibility of upgrading to Peacock Premium Plus. Good to have this forum in case any of us finds a solution.

Most definitely! You can always create a new account under a different email if you would like to upgrade. Thats been a workaround for a lot of our customers.

Yes you can do that but then you have to pay for both the peacock premium and then also peacock premium without ads. So what is the point?

@mkiefer96 if you haven't seen this article on our website: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/peacock-subscription-faqs. At the bottom of the document in the frequently asked questions section there is the update that if you're receiving the free Peacock Premium, you cannot upgrade to Premium plus: 

 

Can I upgrade to Peacock Premium Plus if I receive Peacock Premium from Xfinity?
If you purchased Peacock Premium through the Peacock app on X1 or Flex, see how to manage your Peacock subscription on Xfinity for upgrade instructions.

If you receive Peacock Premium through NOW TV, Gigabit speed internet or Xfinity Rewards, you cannot upgrade to Peacock Premium Plus through Xfinity at this time.

I would gladly pay the $6/mnth to go add free if only the rewards-given Peacock Premium would allow that upgrade.

Same here. This is such a ridiculous situation.

Same here. I'm pretty sure I had this working for some months, but no more.

@Reclaimer11, thank you for reaching out using the Xfinity Community Forum. I can definitely understand the desire to upgrade to the ad free version of Peacock. You should be able to create another Peacock account to sign up for the paid subscription.

@user_lv3wgh​ Yes. So did I, until the policy change. Now it's "If you receive Peacock Premium through NOW TV, Gigabit speed internet or Xfinity Rewards, you cannot upgrade to Peacock Premium Plus through Xfinity at this time." At least they did say "at this time" which prompted me to raise the question. Worth a try.

Wow! This is just frustrating, isn’t peacock owned by Xfinity anyway. It’s ridiculous to have to pay full price to get the ad free option, when we are willing to pay the difference. it seems like there’s supposed to be an option based on this article, but don’t have a set top so can’t even try

Apologies for any frustration this may have caused, @user_nm4n85. It depends on how you acquired your Peacock subscription. For example, if you receive Peacock Premium through NOW TV, Gigabit speed internet, or Xfinity Rewards, you cannot upgrade to Peacock Premium Plus through Xfinity at this time.

If you purchased Peacock Premium through the Peacock app on X1 or Flex, the article you shared would be the one used to manage your subscription.
