Comcast has announced a $5-a-month streaming video service for cord-cutters. It essentially replicates some of the elements of Comcast's X1 cable video service but delivers it over the internet rather than cable.
Xfinity Flex, priced at $5 per month, is packaged with an internet-connected, 4K HDR streaming TV device which comes with voice remote. The service will only be available to Xfinity internet customers in Comcast's footprint and is set to launch on March 26.
Flex will offer access to subscription services like HBO, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Epix. Flex users can sign up for these services on the platform or access existing subscriptions.
Flex also allows users to purchase movies and shows from the digital store and pair a Movies Anywhere account to watch movies already owned. Music streaming from Pandora, iHeartRadio, and XITE is supported. Comcast says that soon Xfinity Flex customers will be able to upgrade to full Xfinity X1 cable service from within the guide providing live channels, on-demand titles, and a cloud DVR.
