How the student Peacock plan works
Considering the big savings on offer with the student Peacock plan, the streaming service does require students to confirm their eligibility.
Similar to many other streaming services, Peacock makes use of a company called SheerID to verify student status. This process involves being redirected to the SheerID website and entering some personal information, including your full name, date of birth, name of school, and an email address.
Once verified, the user will then receive a promo code by email that they can then use to sign up to the Premium plan at a discounted rate.
If a new subscriber, the student will need to sign up to Peacock normally and then add the promo code in the Have a promo code? field during checkout.
If an existing subscriber, the student can use the promo code by heading to the Plans & Payments page of the Account section and entering the code in the box next to Have a promotional code?.
