Comcast Internet-Only Customers Can Now Get XFINITY Flex Streaming Box for Free

Phillip Dampier September 18, 2019 Comcast/Xfinity, Competition, Consumer News, Online Video, Video, XFINITY Flex 3 Comments

Comcast internet-only customers that used to pay $5 a month for an X1-powered streaming video box with an X1 voice remote will now get their first box for free.

The XFINITY Flex Streaming Box, capable of streaming 4K video from Comcast’s own streaming video platform and supported streaming apps from services like Amazon Prime Video, Epix, Hulu, HBO, and Netflix, is Comcast’s solution for cord-cutters that might be thinking about switching internet providers or could be lured back to an inexpensive video package if the price is right.

The platform should be familiar to former Comcast video customers that used to use Comcast’s X1 set-top box, and includes access to Comcast’s large TV Everywhere on-demand content library, which includes over 10,000 free, advertiser-supported movies and TV series.

In fact, the only services not available on the platform are Comcast’s live TV streaming competitors like AT&T TV Now, YouTube TV, and similar services.

The first box is now bundled with internet-only service, with each additional box priced at $5/month.

(Small type) You must lease their new xFi gateways to receive a Flex box.

Do you own your own cable modem or rent one from Comcast? I own my own, won’t let me get a Flex Box.
