December 16, 2020

WarnerMedia and Comcast have confirmed the rollout of the HBO Max app on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex, providing Xfinity customers with access to HBO Max’s full portfolio of original series and programming in one integrated experience.

X1 and Flex customers will be able to access the HBO Max app over the Internet by saying ‘HBO Max into the Xfinity Voice Remote or, for example, by saying the name of a desired title (such as, ‘The Flight Attendant’). Xfinity customers will also be able to find the HBO Max app content library integrated throughout the X1 and Flex experience, including in current and evergreen collections such as ‘Best of 2020’, ‘Kids and Family’, ‘Black Film & TV’ and more.

The launch on Xfinity comes just in time for the release of the highly-anticipated feature film Wonder Woman 1984 starring Gal Gadot debuting on HBO Max on Christmas Day – the same day it hits theatres across the US. Wonder Woman 1984 will be available in 4K Ultra HD, HDR 10, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos to Xfinity customers on supported X1 and Flex devices.

“Since launching HBO Max, our teams have worked closely to deliver an HBO Max experience that would provide more frictionless access to Xfinity X1 and Flex customers, and we’re thrilled to debut the app today,” declared Jennifer Mirgorod, Head of Sales and Account Management, WarnerMedia Distribution. “Millions of Xfinity customers can now easily explore all that HBO Max has to offer with a simple voice command.”

“The addition of the HBO Max app is another example of how we make it easier for customers to find their favourite live, on demand or streamed entertainment— all accessible with the award-winning Xfinity Voice Remote,” commented Rebecca Heap, Senior Vice President, Video and Entertainment, Comcast Cable. “I’m incredibly proud of our team’s efforts to bring the HBO Max app to X1 and Flex in time for the holidays and the anticipated premiere of Wonder Woman 1984.”
