Comcast has announced it has deployed over one million Xfinity Flex devices, a major milestone since its launch last year that further underscores the differentiation of the 4K UHD TV streaming device and award-winning Xfinity Voice Remote, the company said.
Included with Xfinity Internet for free, the device leverages Xfinity X1 technology to deliver an incredible experience, value and control for streaming-first Internet customers.
Flex offers great value and choice to customers by aggregating programming from over 200 streaming services including most recently Peacock, Hulu, CBS All Access, Radio.com and Black News Channel. These services join Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Music, HBO, YouTube, EPIX, STARZ, Pandora, and many more that are all accessible with the Xfinity Voice Remote via Flex´s simple and personalized dashboard.
Xfinity Flex also provides customers with an easy way to better manage, control and enjoy the connected home by integrating with Xfinity´s xFi platform to find their Wi-Fi password, see what devices are connected to their network, set parental controls, and even pause Wi-Fi access on their home network. Customers can also use voice control to audibly ring their Tile devices making it even easier to find lost items nearby, access their camera feeds, arm or disarm their home security system, and find their Xfinity Mobile phone — all on the TV.
Last month, Flex customers were also among the first to enjoy a preview of Peacock, the new streaming service from NBCUniversal, before its national launch on July 15. Peacock Premium is now available to Xfinity X1 and Flex customers at no extra cost. The service offers over 15,000 hours of shows and movies, and Flex customers can simply say “Peacock” into their voice remote to explore iconic shows and movies, NBC favorites, plus trending news and pop culture updated daily.
