Apple TV+ has launched across Comcast’s U.S. entertainment platforms. These include Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex and XClass TV — according to Comcast. The rollout began Monday and will be available across eligible devices “in the coming days,” the company said.
The launch will be supported by a preview of some of Apple TV+’s original series and films across X1, Flex and Stream. The preview, which will not require a sign-up or sign-in, will run from March 15 to March 21. Xfinity customers who are not currently Apple TV+ subscribers will have access to a three-month free trial of the service if they sign-up via their Xfinity device by April 25.
“With the launch of Apple TV+, our customers now have access to all of today’s most popular streaming services through our aggregated user experience and award-winning voice technology” Comcast Chief Business Development Officer Sam Schwartz said in a press release. “By leveraging our global technology platform, our partners can distribute apps on one tech stack to reach tens of millions of viewers.”
The stack to which Schwartz refers is a common set of development tools and resources that are available through its global technology platform. This enables content providers to design, develop and rapidly deploy apps that can be consumed on more than 50 million devices including Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex, XClass TV, Sky Q, Sky Glass and those from syndication partners.
In August 2021, T-Mobile said that it would give a free year of Apple TV+ to all new and existing customers of Magenta, Magenta MAX, Sprint Unlimited Plus and Sprint Premium.
