September 18, 2019

Xfinity Flex, the OTT service from US cableco Comcast, is now included with an Xfinity Internet-only subscription, providing millions of new and existing customers with the ability to easily access streaming services and manage their connected home devices right on the TV.

The service comes with an Internet-connected, 4K streaming TV device, Xfinity Voice Remote, a redesigned guide, and more than 10,000 free movies and TV shows.

“Xfinity Flex gives customers a radically simple, aggregated television experience that personalises their streaming choices across a sea of apps and services,” said Matt Strauss, Executive Vice President, Xfinity Services, Comcast Cable. “Today’s Internet customers need more than speed—they want wall-to-wall WiFi coverage, simplified control of their connected home, and the best streaming experience. With Xfinity xFi and Xfinity Flex, we are including all of that and more with our Internet service, all in one place, on the best screen in the home.”

Xfinity Flex also provides customers with an easy way to better manage, control and enjoy the connected home by enabling them easily to access their entertainment, find their Wi-Fi password, see what devices are connected to their network, set parental controls, and even pause Wi-Fi access on their home network. They also can use voice control to access their camera feeds, arm or disarm their home security system and find their Xfinity Mobile phone—all on the TV.

An Xfinity Flex box is included, along with the Xfinity Voice Remote, at no additional cost as part of an Xfinity Internet-only subscription. Additional boxes will be available to lease for $5 per month per box (limit of two boxes per customer).
