Comcast today announced a new partnership with Breaking Glass Pictures, a community-renowned content distributor for LGBTQ cinema, that will add over 80 new LGBTQ titles to Xfinity on Demand. More than 30 titles, including End of Love, An Englishman in New York, Marathon, The Long Coast, Seeing Heaven, The Stranger in Us, Alex and Leo, and Bite Marks will be made available immediately across all platforms including the recently established Xfinity LGBTQ Film and TV Collection. Additional content from Breaking Glass will be made available throughout the year.
"This partnership with Breaking Glass Pictures reinforces our commitment to providing our customers with the largest and most diverse library of LGBTQ content," said Jean-Claire Fitschen, Executive Director Multicultural Services for Comcast. "They have a focus on finding unique and visionary content, inclusive of all genres, from around the world, and we’re proud to be able to put those films on a platform that reaches millions of people."
Xfinity TV customers can also access Breaking Glass by saying "LGBTQ" into their X1 voice remote. Alternatively, customers can navigate to "Popular Destinations" and then choose "LGBTQ Film & TV."
'We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Comcast on this LGBTQ initiative and commitment to the community," said Michael Repsch, SVP of Distribution and Sales at Breaking Glass Pictures. "It is important to bring diverse audiences together and having a partner with the scale and reach of Comcast will help ensure those voices are properly heard."
