Xfinity customers will be getting access to select premium streaming service content for free as part of a new ‘Free This Week’ program announced by Comcast. While Xfinity has offered free content to its customers in the past, Free This Week is designed to be a much longer and more inclusive offering, providing access to premium content for free for the next year.

During the summer of 2022, Xfinity launched its Summer Of Free campaign, providing Xfinity Rewards customers with access to a selection of premium shows, movies, and more at no additional cost. Likewise, every year Xfinity launches a Watchathon Week, unlocking access to movies and TV episodes that customers would otherwise have to pay for.

Free This Week is similar to those previous Watchathon Week events although instead of only unlocking content for one week a year, it is designed to be a year-long program that unlocks free content each week from streaming services and premium networks. Essentially, X1 and Flex users will be offered the option to watch something new every week of the year for free.

To kickstart the program, Xfinity is opening access to various wellness apps and services including The Great Courses, Gaia, One Day University, Gaiam TV, Sweat Factor, and FitFusion by Jillian Michaels. This first free offering is due to last two weeks and Comcast has already confirmed that future weeks will unlock free access to a number of popular premium streaming services including HBO Max, Showtime, History Vault, and Lifetime Movie Club, among others.

Any of the content that is being offered as part of Xfinity’s Free This Week campaign can be found in a dedicated section on X1 and Flex devices, accessible by using the voice remote and the “Free This Week” voice command. Comcast has also confirmed that some Free This Week programming will also be available via the Xfinity Stream app and on the XClass TV platform.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
