Xfinity has the largest cable network of any broadband provider in the US, and it’s putting it to good use with bundles that give the biggest bang for your buck. It’s also been adding new perks and features for existing customers for free.
We’re impressed with some of the recent news from Xfinity, including the addition of 20+ channels to the Xfinity Stream app for all Xfinity customers. Recent promotions from Xfinity customer service are also by far Xfinity’s best deals yet.
Here’s why we think Xfinity Internet + TV deals now deliver more value than ever before.
Xfinity Stream App Has Added 20+ Free Channels for All Xfinity Customers
The Xfinity Stream app allows Xfinity TV customers to access everything included in their TV plan on mobile devices from anywhere. Just recently, Xfinity announced the addition of 20+ free ad-supported FAST channels from NBC, Xumo Play, and Sky to the app. And the best thing is that you don’t have to be an Xfinity TV customer to watch these channels. They’re available to all Xfinity customers at no extra cost.
The app now has Sky News, NBC News NOW, and 19 channels from Xumo. These include news channels and TV shows/movie channels covering a wide range of genres such as lifestyle, reality, crime, comedy, and kids.
Xfinity customers have come to expect such free upgrades from Xfinity, but TV isn’t the only service Xfinity is adding value to.
Xfinity’s 10G Network is Increasing Speeds and Lowering Cost for both Coax and Fiber Customers
Xfinity has devoted significant funds to developing what it considers the next generation of connectivity. Grouped under the brand name “10G Network” are cutting-edge technologies Comcast has been working on to make its internet faster, cheaper, and more sustainable.
One such technology is vCMTS which allows Xfinity to create virtual CMTSs with existing hardware. This saves space, improves energy efficiency, and lowers deployment time. Xfinity received an Emmy Award in Technology and Engineering for its work on vCMTS technology.
In late 2022, Xfinity demonstrate successful implementation of converged Distributed Access Architecture for the first time in the industry. This development brings the separate technologies used for fiber and coaxial networks, promising a more harmonious future for both.
Xfinity is also building ML and AI algorithms to detect and fix unexpected problems early. Since deterioration of equipment and bad weather conditions are leading causes of outages, this will significantly improve the actual availability of Xfinity Internet.
All existing Xfinity customers are benefiting from these improvements at no extra cost. The title of this article will probably hold true indefinitely in the future.
