Use DNS Server – Method 1

DNS server is a service offer to watch geo-blocked content on devices that do not support VPN apps directly, such as PS4 and PS5. 

There are many VPN services that offer DNS servers, but I found ExpressVPN’s DNS server (known as MediaStreamer) the best among all to watch Peacock on my PS4 and PS5.

  1. Subscribe a reliable VPN, then connect to a US server ( I recommend ExpressVPN).

  3. A verification code will be sent to your email address to get DNS settings access.
  4. Enter that code to access DNS settings. 
  5. Now on the DNS Settings page, under IP address registration, click on Register my IP address. (Note if you only see “Register” instead of “Register my IP address”, there is no need to do anything).
  6. Now enable the “Automatically register my IP address.”
  7. Go to www.expressvpn.com/setup#playstation
  8. When the page opens, you will see the DNS server IP address, copy that address. 
  9. Now open your PS4 and PS5, Settings → Network → Settings → Set Up Internet Connection. 
  10. Go to the Advanced Settings of the Internet connection that your PS4 and PS5 is using. 
  11. In Advance Settings, do the following:
  • IP Address Settings: Automatic 
  • DHCP Host: Don’t Specify 
  • DNS Settings: Manual 
  • Primary DNS: Use the DNS IP address you copied before 
  • Secondary DNS: leave as it is
  • Proxy server: Don’t use 
  • MTU Settings: Automatic
  1. Now click OK and wait for the process. 
  2. Once you are connected go to the PS4 and PS5 main menu, search Peacock, sign in and start streaming.

How VPN Allows Me to Watch and Download Peacock in New Zealand?

Due to content licensing Peacock is not available in New Zealand. This means if you try to access Peacock on New Zealand, it won’t allow you to stream the content. 

But, there’s a way around this! With VPN, you can mask your local IP address and change it with a US IP address, tricking Peacock that you are somewhere in America.   

When you use a VPN and connect to a server in the USA, your device pretends to be in America. After that, when you try to access Peacock, The streaming service believes that you are actually there since an IP address is the only way to identify the user’s location and allows you to watch the content.
