Comcast Xfinity Watchathon Week Includes Free Netflix

If you're a Comcast Xfinity TV customer without Netflix, watch for free from April 3 through 9.

Xfinity Watchathon Week

Comcast's fifth-annual Xfinity Watchathon Week event is coming, and this year there's a new perk: Netflix.

The annual binge-watching event runs from April 3 through 9, giving Xfinity TV customers free access to premium channels to which they might not already subscribe. More than 50 networks are participating this year, and for the first time, Netflix will also be free to X1 customers who don't already subscribe to the streaming service.

"We know consumers love to binge watch new shows and old favorites, and this is the biggest binge-watching event of the year with so many networks involved," Bill Holmes, global head of business development at Netflix, said in a statement. "Whether customers are eager to start Stranger Things or catch up on Orange is the New Black, Watchathon Week is a great time for Xfinity customers to see for themselves what the buzz is all about."

Participating networks include Starz and Showtime, so you can catch up on Outlander or Billions.

Other networks participating in this year's Watchathon Week include: A&E, ABC, AMC, Animal Planet, BBCA, BET, Bravo, Cartoon Network, CBS Broadcast, CMT, CNBC, CNN, Comedy Central, Crackle, The CW, Discovery, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, E!, ESPN, Food Network, FOX, FreeForm, FX, FXX, FYI, GSN, HGTV, History, ID, IFC, Lifetime, Logo, MLB Network, MTV, National Geographic, NBC, OWN, Oxygen, PBS, Science, Spike, Sprout, Syfy, TBS, TLC, TNT, Tru TV, TV Land, USA, VH1, Viceland, We TV and WGNA.

So, grab the popcorn and get ready for a marathon of AMC's The Walking Dead, A&E's 60 Days In, FOX's New Girl, or whatever else you're into.

"The focus of Xfinity Watchathon Week is to provide complete, unlimited access to the best programming and give our customers the ability to sample, binge and explore everything our content partners have to offer," Comcast's Vice President of Programming Andy Hunter said in a statement.

If you're not an X1 customer, you can still try Netflix for free. The streaming service offers a free month of service for new customers.
