Comcast and Apple announced today that the Apple TV+ app is launching across Comcast’s entertainment platforms in the U.S., including Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex, and XClass TV.
Apple TV+ will begin rolling out on Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex and XClass TV today and will be available across all eligible devices in the coming days. Apple TV+ launched on Sky devices (Sky Q and Sky Glass) in the UK and Europe in December.
“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.” said Sam Schwartz, Chief Business Development Officer, Comcast. “By leveraging our global technology platform, our partners can distribute apps on one tech stack to reach tens of millions of viewers.”
For the launch, Apple is giving Xfinity customers a preview of some of the most popular Apple TV+ series and films from March 15 – March 21. Xfinity customers will be able to check out the first seasons of many of the app’s series, as well as the blockbuster Apple Original film “Greyhound” with no sign-up or sign-in required on X1, Flex, and Stream.
Additionally, Xfinity customers who are not currently Apple TV+ subscribers are eligible for a three-month free trial of Apple TV+ when they sign-up via their Xfinity device by April 25.
“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,” said Peter Stern, Apple’s Vice President 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+.”
