Comcast & Amazon Pact to Offer Prime Video


Comcast and Amazon have reached an agreement to launch Prime Video on Xfinity X1, marking the first time that the streaming service will be integrated on an MVPD platform in the U.S.

The move provides Xfinity TV customers with access to thousands of additional premium shows and movies over the internet. This includes exclusive and award-winning Prime originals like Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Goliath, as well as live events and TV, with titles available to rent or buy, or to watch with a Prime Video Channels subscription.

The Amazon Prime Video app is expected to launch on X1 later this year.

“Amazon Prime Video’s growing list of originals, movies, shows, documentaries and kids’ programming will be an excellent complement to the overall X1 viewing experience,” said Dana Strong, president of consumer services at Comcast. “We want to give customers easy access to all their favorite content in one place. X1 continues to be a platform that can curate live TV, on-demand movies and shows, and streaming internet video and music titles into one, easy-to-use, seamless experience.”

“Prime Video is dedicated to making your favorite shows and movies effortless to watch,” said Greg Hart, VP of Amazon Prime Video. “The addition of the Prime Video app to X1 will make navigating between Prime Video and live TV easier than ever. We are excited for our Prime members to seamlessly find the shows and movies they love.”
