Apple will expand its Apple TV+ offering to Comcast’s US platforms, starting today.
Following the recent roll-out of its all original content streaming service to the UK and Europe last December, the Cupertino company’s streaming service is now rolling out across Comcast services and eligible devices, which include:
- Xfinity X1
- Xfninity Flex
- XClass TV
According to Comcast’s press release, from March 15 through March 21, Apple will offer Xfinity customers an unprecedented preview of some of its most popular Apple TV+ original series and films across X1, Flex and Stream, no sign-up or sign-in required. Xfinity customers will be able to enjoy the first seasons of many of its most popular shows, as well as the blockbuster Apple Original film “Greyhound.”
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. Customers can access Apple TV+ by saying “Apple TV+” into their voice remote or by saying the name of a desired title from the streaming service (like, “Ted Lasso” or “The Morning Show”).
Apple TV+ is the first app built using a common set of development tools and resources through Comcast’s global technology platform, enabling content providers to design, develop and rapidly deploy apps that can reach 50+ million devices including Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex, XClass TV, Sky Q, Sky Glass and devices from syndication partners.
