XFINITY Watchathon Week 2017

[ Edited ]

**UPDATE: 03/16/2017**

 

TV fans, it’s time to pop the corn, put fresh batteries in your Voice remote and get ready to binge.

 

XFINITY Watchathon Week is returning for its fifth straight year.

 

For one week, April 3 - 9, XFINITY customers will enjoy many of the hottest TV shows from broadcast, cable, and premium networks – all free with XFINITY On Demand.

 

Watchathon Week is the time to satisfy every TV-watching desire. Catch up on current season favorites such as This is Us and Empire or go on a mega-binge of multi-season classics like The Simpsons and Orphan Black. Or just get real with reality favorites like Chrisley Knows Best, Fixer Upper, and 60 Days In.

 

More than 200 shows from dozens of networks will be available on TV, online at xfinity.com/watchathon or on the go with the XFINITY Stream app.

 

Last year, Xfinity TV customers watched nearly 60 million hours of TV in just 7 days. So rest up.

Watchathon Week is coming soon.

 

For more information about what is to come and specifics about Watchathon, all updates will be posted here. 

 

**UPDATE: 03/20/2017**

 

Comcast today announced that for the first time Netflix will join more than 50 networks participating in Xfinity Watchathon Week. The fifth annual TV binge-watching marathon runs April 3 - 9, giving Xfinity TV customers an all access pass to thousands of the best shows and movies from broadcast, cable, and premium networks. Xfinity X1 customers will also enjoy one-click access to Netflix throughout Xfinity Watchathon Week, with unlimited and seamless access to the Netflix catalog of movies and shows, including award-winning original series House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, Stranger Things, and The Crown.

 

X1 customers who are not currently Netflix subscribers will enjoy unlimited access to the Netflix online catalog throughout Watchathon Week and will have the ability to sign up on April 10. For more information on Watchathon Week, visit xfinity.com/watchathon or join the conversation on Facebook and on Twitter by using #Watchathon and following @xfinity. Content availability will vary across Xfinity On Demand platforms (TV, Xfinity.com/Stream and the Xfinity Stream app), and in virtually all cases can be viewed regardless of which video subscription tier the customer is subscribed to.

Re: XFINITY Watchathon Week 2017

Why so hard for anyone to state the year and dates for Watchathons in the same message? It's comming but when? Either dates are stated w/o year so you don't know how old the info, or like your post it says 2017 w/o dates!
