7th Annual Watchathon

Comcast® is one of the best cable providers in the United States of America who often comes up with the best cable deals for both their residential and commercial subscribers. On April 02, 2019, the Telco giant announced about the launching of their 7th annual Watchathon from April 08 to 14, 2019. This weeklong event will offer free access to thousands of movies, shows, and more than 200 series including the Game of Thrones, Billions, 60 Days, Manhunt, The Hills, and This is Us, etc., to their Xfinity customers. In addition, X1 customers can enjoy free access to more than 70 networks and streaming services free of cost.

The Vice President of the Video Entertainment Services wing at Comcast®, Daniel Spinosa said, “Last year, our highest day of on-demand viewing happened during Xfinity Watchathon Week and we are excited to once again offer this event to our customers with more great content to enjoy across networks, studios and streaming partners.” He further added, “As we continue to bring more of the entertainment our customers love to Xfinity TV platforms including X1, Watchathon Week is more exciting every year for both our customers and partners and its continued success is a testament to X1’s ability to make search and discovery of content fast and easy—all customers have to do is get to watching.”

The event is actually launched in response to the rising-over-the-top rivals of Comcast® such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Hulu. Besides, Xfinity customers can enjoy this weeklong Watchathon event across devices by employing their stream app as well as the web portal.
