While the platform does not offer much in this field, we have some tips you can use to save data. Moreover, these are simple steps and can end up saving tons. Check them out down below:
1. Avoid downloading heavy files on Peacock
Peacock provides an offline viewing feature for Premium Plus users. However, downloading the content will eat up a lot of your data. Instead of downloading it, you should stream it directly.
2. Close other apps
Whenever you’re streaming on the Peacock app, it is recommended to close all other apps as they use your data in the background.
3. Avoid using multiple streams
Streaming on multiple devices on the same network will compromise your data and internet speed. So stream on one device at a time to save a lot of your data.
4. High Internet speed
This is the most important factor which saves a lot of your data. If your internet is faster, it will not let you face buffering. Most of the platforms eat our data during buffering, and an internet speed of 30 Mbps should be enough to save your data.
