Comcast today announced that Xfinity TV customers will have access to the third annual Xfinity Festival Infantil, a two-week all-access pass to hundreds of hours of the best kids content in Spanish and English at no extra cost. From June 19 through July 2, Xfinity TV will make available popular kid’s shows and movies from networks such as Vme Kids, Univision Networks, Kids Central, and Discovery Familia. Festival Infantil’s content will be available through Xfinity On Demand and on-the-go through the Xfinity Stream TV app.

"Festival Infantil allows us to showcase our commitment to providing the best age-appropriate and quality content in Spanish and English," said Javier Garcia, SVP Multicultural Services, Comcast. "We are proud to provide kids with great entertainment options and the opportunity to practice their Spanish all the while giving parents peace of mind knowing that all content available has been deemed age appropriate."  

During the two weeks of Festival Infantil, Xfinity TV customers will enjoy:

  • Hundreds of hours of free movies and shows in Spanish including family favorites such as Univision’s El Chavo Animado, Chespirito and El Chavo; popular family movies Open Season, Stuart Little and Next Karate Kid from Cine Sony; Discovery Familia’s DOKI and Luna; Kids Central’s Fishtronaut, Franny’s Feet, and Dragon; Sprout’s Ruff-Ruff Tweet & Dave, Nina's World and Terrific Trucks; and Vme Kid’s new show Louie plus favorites such as Tayo, Dougie se Disfraza, El Mundo de Rosie, and many more!

  • Premieres of two original Baby First en Español feature films, Harry y Su Gran Aventura en el Circo & Harry y Su Gran Conteo de Cumpleaños on the XLEC.

Festival Infantil’s content from Baby First en Español, Discovery Familia and Vme Kids will also be available to all Xfinity TV customers for the first time via the Xfinity Stream App, which now includes more than 200 networks that users can enjoy live through their mobile devices while away from home.

Marking a first for Xfinity Festival Infantil, Baby First en Español will premiere two original movies Harry y Su Gran Aventura en el Circo & Harry y Su Gran Conteo de Cumpleaños on Xfinity On Demand and also simulcast it via the Xfinity Latino Entertainment Channel (XLEC)."We are so thrilled to have Baby First en Español as part of Xfinity Latino’s third annual ‘Festival Infantil’," said Sharon Rechter, Co-Founder of Baby First Americas. "Being involved in this viewing festival represents a great opportunity because it allows us to showcase our extensive Spanish-language educational content to even more viewers. At Baby First, we aim to create children’s content that inspires, educates, and entertains the bicultural and bilingual families in America and knowing that Comcast also has a commitment to bilingual education and entertainment, we are even more inspired to continue with our mission."

During Festival Infantil and throughout the whole year, Xfinity’s Kids Zone destination provides a safe space for children to watch TV independently while parents can get peace of mind knowing the content has been deemed age-appropriate. The Kids Zone feature, a truly bicultural experience that is available in customers’ language of choice, also provides parents exclusive access to Common Sense Media's age-based ratings and reviews in Spanish, directly on the TV.
