Today, WarnerMedia and Comcast announced that the HBO Max app is now available on Xfinity X1 and Flex.
Xfinity customers can access the app by saying “HBO Max” with their Xfinity Voice Remote. The app will also be available in the app library and HBO Max content will be included in collections including “Best of 2020,” “Kids and Family,” “Black Film & TV,” and more.
The addition of HBO Max for Xfinity customers comes just in time for customers to sign up and have access to Wonder Woman 1984 when the film launches on HBO Max on Christmas Day – the same day the film premieres in theaters.
“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,” said 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 favorite live, on demand or streamed entertainment— all accessible with the award-winning Xfinity Voice Remote,” said 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.”
The app will begin rolling out today.
