Comcast Bringing Apple TV+ Streaming Service to Xfinity Platform

Comcast and Apple March 7 announced the launch of Apple TV+ across Comcast’s entertainment platforms in the U.S., including Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex and XClass TV.

Apple TV+ will be available across all eligible devices in the coming days. Apple TV+ launched on Sky devices (Sky Q and Sky Glass) in the U.K. and Europe in December.

From March 15 through March 21, Apple will offer Xfinity customers a preview of some of its most popular Apple TV+ original series and films with no sign-up or sign-in required. Xfinity subs will have access to the first seasons of many of the platform’s most popular shows, as well as the Apple Original movie Greyhound.

“With the launch of Apple TV+, our customers now have access to all of today’s most popular streaming services through our aggregated user experience and award-winning voice technology,” Sam Schwartz, chief business development officer at Comcast, said in a statement. “By leveraging our global technology platform, our partners can distribute apps on one tech stack to reach tens of millions of viewers.”

“Apple TV+ offers the highest-quality programming from the finest creators in the world, and one of the best ways to enjoy it is on the big TV in your living room,” added Peter Stern, Apple’s VP of services. “Our work with Comcast lights up that experience for tens of millions of new devices, and we are thrilled that so many Comcast customers have a compelling way to enjoy their new favorite shows on Apple TV+.”

Customers can access Apple TV+ by saying “Apple TV+” into their voice remote or by saying the name of a desired title from the streaming service (like, “Ted Lasso” or “The Morning Show”).
