Xfinity Watchathon Week is fast approaching, and a number of your favorite TV shows and movies will be available to watch for your viewing pleasure for free.

From May 11-17, Xfinity video and Internet-only customers will have more than 10,000 programs to choose from; as millions of people across the country practice social distancing. What perfect timing to stay home and binge your heart — or shall we say eyes — out.

On Thursday (May 7), Comcast made the major announcement. “Over the past month with so many customers still at home, we’ve not only seen a 50 percent increase in Xfinity On Demand viewing across genres of programming from drama and comedy to reality but we’re noticing other interesting trends like a more than double-digit growth for discovery-related voice commands such as ‘what to watch’ and ‘surprise me,’ said Rebecca Heap, Senior Vice President, Video & Entertainment, Comcast. “Watchathon Week lets customers enjoy free access to the best shows and movies that they haven’t had the chance to watch and that everyone has been talking about, no strings attached.”

Some of the programs you can binge at no additional cost include, but are’t limited to, “EPIX’s ‘Godfather of Harlem’ and ‘Belgravia;’ STARZ’s ‘Outlander,’ ‘Power,’ and new series ‘Hightown and SHOWTIME® drama ‘Billions.’” Comcast’s website reads. “Free programming will be available across Xfinity platforms including X1, Flex and Xfinity Stream.”

Moreover, networks where you can watch these free shows and movies include REVOLT, Acorn TV, A&E, AFRO, Aspire TV, Bravo, Bluprint, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Cine Mexicano, DOGTV, EPIX, FOX, HBO, HISTORY Vault, Hitz, Lifetime, Lifetime Movie Club, NBC, Nick Jr., MTV, National Geographic, Pantaya, PlayKids, SHOWTIME, STARZ, TBS, USA Network, VH1, Hulu, and dozens of others.

All of these great series and film options take Quarantine and Chill to a whole new level. To learn more about Xfinity’s Watchathon Week, click here and happy watching.
