Urban Movie Channel (UMC), the SVoD created for African American and urban audiences, is now available to Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers across the US. A subsidiary of RLJ Entertainment, UMC’s launch on Xfinity TV marks the first time the SVoD service has been made available on an MVPD set-top box. Featuring programming in Black film and television, UMC is accessible in the home through Xfinity On Demand and on the go via the Xfinity Stream app and portal. UMC costs $4.99 per month.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring Urban Movie Channel to Xfinity on Demand,” said Traci Otey Blunt, President of UMC. “UMC offers an array of feature films, original series, drama, comedy, documentaries, and more. We’re excited to offer even more customers the ability to watch UMC’s quality urban content at their leisure.”
