The Xumo Stream Box is now available to Xfinity Internet and Now TV customers. While there are plenty of streaming players available, the Xumo Stream Box has been specifically designed with ease of use in mind.

Powered by Comcast’s EntertainmentOS, the Xumo Stream Box was officially announced back in October of this year. At the time, the new streaming player was only made available to Spectrum customers, with the promise that Infinity customers would gain eligibility in due course.

That time has now come. Beginning today, Xfinity Internet customers and Now TV customers can get their own 4K Xumo Stream Box. While the first player is free to those signing up to either service as a new customer, additional boxes will come with an additional monthly fee.

One of the main selling points with the Xumo Stream Box is that it is designed with simplicity in mind. For example, the streaming player comes preloaded with hundreds of streaming apps, prioritizes live TV channels, and users can search across available apps and services with voice commands.

Finding something to watch across streaming apps can be frustrating and time consuming for customers,” said John Dixon, Senior Vice President, Entertainment. “Xumo Stream Box helps simplify streaming so customers can spend less time searching and more time watching with key features like live TV at start-up, leading voice search, an integrated guide, and all the most popular apps preloaded and ready to watch.”

In addition to Charter’s Spectrum and Comcast’s Xfinity services, it was also previously confirmed that Mediacom will offer Xumo Stream Box to its Xtream Internet customers in the coming months.
