Re: Xfinity Movie Week

I assume those of us with only linear cable service and one of the standard cable-boxes (HD or SD) will not have access to these specials. At least by using our televisions at home.

 

Is this true?

Re: Xfinity Movie Week

Evidently Free Movie week won't work for people who can't afford HDTV. I can afford only SD, so people who can't afford the extra HD TV are not privy to Free Movies week.  It would be nice if, up front, Xfinity tells us that.

Free movies 1/18/19 Epix, History Vault, Lifetime

How come almost all of the free movies listed for Epix are in HD?  Not everyone has HD.

Re: Xfinity Movie Week

I did check a few hours ago.

 

Nothing shows up under On Demand (linear cable), so the special is only for Xfinity users with a X1 cable-box, etc.

Free Movies 1/18/19

Yeah right,

Epix has  HD movies listed, so unless you have HD you cannot watch, including Quiet Place.  Cannot even find TCM
