Latest XFINITY news and offers: September 2018

What does XFINITY have to offer this month? Read on to learn the latest about XFINITY news and tech, plus get the details on popular XFINITY offers.

Xfinity launches beta XFINITY Stream app

September 7, XFINITY launched its XFINITY Stream beta app for TVs. XFINITY TV customers who have 2017 or 2018 Samsung Smart TVs can access cable TV without leasing an XFINITY set-top box.

XFINITY customers can already access the streaming app from a variety of Roku devices. XFINITY Stream is also already available on iOS and Android systems. By the end of 2018, Comcast will likely enable the app for Sony and LG smart TVs, too.

XFINITY offers TV and Netflix deal

While many TV service providers have tried to distance themselves from cord-cutting streaming services, XFINITY has embraced their relationship with Netflix.

XFINITY customers using X1 TV can access Netflix right from their smart TV and search Netflix using the X1 Voice Remote. XFINITY even allows customers who don’t have Netflix yet to sign up on X1 and get one month free. In addition, signing up for Netflix with XFINITY services allows customers’ monthly Netflix payment to be added to their monthly Comcast bill.

XFINITY xFi offers the Wi-Fi power that parents want

Wi-Fi  is convenient, but unlimited Wi-Fi access may be a convenience than some family members don’t need. XFINITY xFi is an easy way to monitor and manage home Wi-Fi use on every connected device.

XFINITY xFi allows users to:

  • Set parental controls for each device.
  • Pause Wi-Fi connections for any device.
  • Create time restrictions to limit Wi-Fi access.
  • Get alerts when new devices connect to your Wi-Fi network.
  • Access your Wi-Fi settings remotely with your smartphone.

XFINITY xFi service is currently included with XFINITY xFi Gateway router. A Gateway is available for rent with XFINITY internet plans.

How to save on your XFINITY bill

Looking for some ways to save on your XFINITY services? While XFINITY special offers are a good place to start, here are some ways you can take advantage of additional savings.

  • Agree to a contract – Signing a 1- or 2-year agreement with your new XFINITY services may get you lower introductory plan pricing, up to $10/mo. on select plans.*
  • Enroll in auto-pay – Enrolling in auto-pay for your monthly bill can save you up to $5/mo. for a limited time.*
  • Use your own modem – Using your own qualifying modem could save you up to $11/mo. off your XFINITY internet bill.* However, XFINITY xFi service is only available with the XFINITY Gateway device.
  • Bundle and/or upgrade plans – Combining or upgrading services may increase your monthly bill, but it could add up to savings elsewhere. For example, a monthly charge of about $10 applies to get HD DVR service with basic XFINITY cable TV packages, but HD DVR receiver is included at no extra cost with certain bundle packages.
*Savings based on current pricing and promotions. Actual savings may vary.
