A few months ago we made the switch from our old cable provider to Comcat X1 and I couldn’t be happier with my service. There are so many features we’ve quickly grown to love (hello voice remote!) and it’s just seems Xfinity gets busy moms. From the Xfinity Kids Zone that is set up for the kids to their newest partner ship with Netflix, Xfinity knows what a mom wants. If you haven’t heard the news already Netflix is now fully integrated and available now for X1 customers.
That’s right your Netflix catalog is now available on X1 and you can easily search for shows and movies all in one place. No more having to find and switching remotes or HDMI connections (that’s the worst) and no more guessing if that movie you can’t wait to watch is available on Netflix. You can even use X1 voice remote to find a show just by talking. This is a huge deal for me. As it is, I don’t get much time to myself and when I do, I like to unwind by catching up on my favorite shows. Now it’s even easier for me to watch my favorite shows.
That may be one of my favorite features on the entire platform. Especially after a long day, I don’t have to search through channels to find what I want to watch, I can just talk to the remote. Now my favorite series I watch on Netflix are available right on the X1 platform,.
X1 Customers Will Be Able To Seamlessly Access the Entire Netflix Catalog Via the X1 Voice Remote, Xfinity On Demand or the Netflix App
My husband is a big fan of The Walking Dead but he only started watching a few seasons ago so he tuned into the series late. Now he can watch older episodes through Netflix all while keeping up with the newest season all in one place.
Netflix content will be fully integrated into Xfinity On Demand, enabling X1 customers to watch past and current seasons of shows like The Blacklist, How To Get Away With Murder or The Walking Dead; explore popular Netflix original series like House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black and Stranger Things; or catch up on recent classics like Breaking Bad, LOST and Mad Men, all in one place.
By combining the TV libraries of Netflix and Xfinity On Demand, X1 customers can:
- Launch the Netflix app by simply saying “Netflix” into the X1 voice remote.
- Browse Netflix content alongside other On Demand movies and shows
- Search for an actor like “Adam Sandler” or “Kevin Spacey” and see everything they are in, across both Xfinity and Netflix.
- Start from the beginning of long-running shows like The Walking Dead or Scandal — with all prior seasons from Netflix and the current season from Xfinity — available in one place.
If you’re already an X1 and Netflix customer you’ll just be prompted to sign in when accessing the Netflix service on X1 for the first time. If you’ve been thinking about signing up for Netflix then you’ll be able to sign up for a new Netflix membership directly on X1, have the service added to their Comcast bill and begin to immediately explore and enjoy the service on X1 or across devices.
The Emmy-award winning X1 platform will be in 50 percent of Comcast video customer homes by the end of 2016. For more information about X1, interested customers can visit www.xfinity.com/X1. To learn more about Netflix on X1, visit www.xfinity.com/netflix.
