Watchathon Week Round 4: TV’S Biggest Week for Binge-Watching is Back With More Complete Series
Good news TV fans! Watchathon Week is returning for its fourth year, offering Xfinity TV customers a free all-access pass to some of the hottest and most talked-about shows from premium, cable and broadcast networks available on demand. Xfinity On Demand has become the go-to destination for catching up and staying current on all of the great programming available today, and Watchathon Week takes that to the next level by unlocking the biggest and best TV content for the ultimate TV binge week.
Kicking off on April 18, this year’s Watchathon Week will give Xfinity TV customers access to more than 250 shows from 50+ networks, across multiple platforms – at home on the TV, or on the go via the Xfinity TV mobile app and website.
Watchathon Week is the perfect opportunity to hunker down and catch up on every episode from all the acclaimed new series you may have missed, including FX’s American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson, NBC’s Chicago Med and USA’s Mr. Robot. It’s a chance to discover great series you may not have heard of – for instance TBS’s The Detour, Sundance’s Hap & Leonard and TV Land’s Younger. And this year, almost all of the participating shows will be available to watch from the beginning, so you can view complete series of favorites like HBO’s Game of Thrones, FOX’s The Simpsons and STARZ’s Outlander.
Last year, Xfinity TV customers broke every prior viewing record across platforms, catching up on more than 56 million hours the year’s most buzzed about shows. Mobile viewing during the binge-watching event grew 64%, and for the first time ever, Xfinity On Demand exceeded one million consecutive Xfinity On Demand streams on both Friday and Saturday of Watchathon 2015, highlighting our customers’ evolving viewing habits and growing preference for watching their favorite content.
