Don’t panic… you’ll still be able to get your daily dose of soap!

As news began to spread that Days of Our Lives was no longer going to be airing on NBC, fans rightly freaked out. “Wait, was the soap cancelled?” they asked. Fortunately, the answer is, “No… but it will be moving to a new home.” And we’ve got all the details how, beginning September 12, you can continue to keep up with the lives and loves of your favorite Salem residents.

Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

The good news is that it will be incredibly easy to continue watching the show once it moves to NBC’s streaming service, Peacock. All you have to do is sign up for an account so that you won’t miss a single minute of the action.

Even better, you’ll be getting access to not only current episodes of Days of Our Lives, but a slew of previously-aired episodes. You’ll also be able to watch both chapters of Beyond Salem, the action-packed spinoff series, and the ridiculously adorable stand-alone holiday flick, Days of Our Lives: A Very Merry Salem.

How to Watch Peacock For Free

First, the good news: You don’t need to pay for Peacock in order to enjoy many of the shows and movies it features. You don’t even need a credit card. All you need is to click here with a valid E-mail address. Once you’ve had that address verified and created a free account, you’ll be able to start streaming a slew of shows.

That said, to truly experience everything that Peacock has to offer, you’ll want to get a Premium or Premium Plus package… and that means you’ll need to pay a bit of money.

How Much Does Peacock Cost?

Peacock offers a variety of plans, starting at $4.99 a month for the Premium package.This unlocks just about everything the service has to offer, including, as of September 12, Days of Our Lives. This includes both the new daily episodes, a slew of previously-aired ones, and both Chapter One and Chapter Two of the limited series Beyond Salem. (No word yet on whether or not the streaming service might be looking to add chapters to that saga, or perhaps even do another holiday movie like A Very Salem Christmas).

But if you want to watch Days and most other shows available on the streaming service without adds, you might want to consider signing up for Peacock’s Premium Plus package. This package will run you $9.99 a month (although you can save money on any of the various packages by signing up for a year in advance.

Of course, these plans won’t only be giving you access to Days of Our Lives. In fact, there’s a whole slew of shows available that soap fans will no doubt love. For example, Peacock has next-day airings of the various Real Housewives franchises, not to mention streaming rights to the wildly-popular horse opera Yellowstone, home to the irrepressible Beth Dutton and her infamous one-liners.

Peacock also offers a wide variety of original programming and sporting events, all of which are covered with the packages mentioned above.

Does Peacock Premium Offer Free Trials?

Unfortunately, no. Neither Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus are currently offering free trials. That said, it never hurts to keep your eyes peeled, because streaming services do sometimes run limited-time offers.

There is, however, good news… at least for some folks! Peacock Premium is completely free for people who receive their cable through certain outlets or subscription services. We’ll walk through what those services are and how you can register to get Peacock (and Days of Our Lives) free below.

Watch Peacock Premium Free With Xfinity Subscription

The first way you can get Peacock Premium free is to have a subscription through Xfinity. That’s because Peacock Premium is currently included for no additional cost to all Xfinity Flex customers and Xfinity X1 customers, as well as those who have a subscription to Xfinity Internet or Digital Starter TV (or equivalent or above). How can you take advantage of this offer? It’s simple, really!

• Visit Peacock.com.
• Create a free account.
• Link your Xfinity account.

If you’re a Spectrum customer — whether they provide your internet, cable or both — you might be eligible for between three months and a year of Peacock Premium… absolutely free! In order to register, all you have to do is the following:

• Visit Peacock.com.
• Create a free account.
• Link your Spectrum account.
• Start watching Peacock!

What Shows Are on Peacock?

There are a whole lot of shows available via Peacock, including next-day streamings of shows like The Real Housewives franchise and popular NBC shows such as Law & Order, Chicago Fire (and Med and PD. You can also receive advance access to shows such as Below Deck Med, meaning that you can be the first to check out all the crazy yacht-life action! Peacock also has the streaming rights to the first four seasons of the horse opera Yellowstone, as well as a wide variety of movies and sporting events.

But of course, the big draw for soap fans will be Days of Our Lives. Heading into fall, the show has huge plots percolating — including the return of Stefan (because you can’t keep a DiMera down, even after their heart has been donated to someone else), the reveal of Abigail’s true murderer, and… what are we forgetting?

Oh, right… the question of which lucky lady in Salem will find herself trying to change the bad boy ways of Alex Kiriakis (played by Robert Scott Wilson, who until a month or so ago was Salem’s notorious reformed necktie-killer, Ben).

As we say in the business, there are going to be a whole lot of reasons to “tune in tomorrow”… but the only way to do so will be by signing up for Peacock before the big move on September 12.
