Question   Where can I get a local printable Xfinity channel lineup?   Answer   Comcast may have it online at  https://www.xfinity.com/learn/channel-lineup  or  https://www.xfinity.com/support/local-channel-lineup/. From there you will see the option to "Print".   A lineup may also have been included with one of your recent bills -- check  https://customer.xfinity.com/ .   Service Centers should have printed channel lineups. Check locations and hours at http://www.xfinity.com/support/service-center-locations/ to pick one up, or call Customer Service at 1-800-Comcast and have them send a lineup to you.   For more details, see here: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/id11-channel-lineup

Once logged in, they can connect their Xfinity TV account, as well as their accounts from any other participating digital retailers, to Movies Anywhere and create one centralized digital movie collection that can be accessed on Xfinity X1, the Xfinity Stream app and other Xfinity TV platforms. With the addition of Comcast to the Movies Anywhere lineup, customers’ Movies Anywhere collections will be accessible for the first time directly on the TV through Xfinity On Demand, and on devices via the Xfinity Stream app and web portal. All Movies Anywhere users are also able to access their collections via the Movies Anywhere app and web portal on an array of additional platforms.   Movies Anywhere extends Xfinity TV customers’ ability to purchase digital movies across their favorite platforms and retailers, including the Xfinity Digital Store. One of the top digital retailers for new releases, the Xfinity Digital Store offers Xfinity TV customers the ability to easily purchase and access thousands of movies, many featuring   enhanced extras   via X1 and across devices via the Xfinity Stream app and web portal.
