Extended Access for Xfinity Rewards Members

Also new this year, starting May 10,  all Xfinity Rewards members can extend their Watchathon experience with a complimentary download of the classic American action drama Top Gun through May 24.  And through May 31, we are expanding the ability for Rewards members to trial a new SVOD to include Stingray Karaoke,  Lifetime Movie Club, History Vault, Kidstream, DOG TV, and UP Faith & Family, . Xfinity Rewards members can access these and other great rewards in the Xfinity App or by logging onto Xfinity.com/rewards.

“Watchathon Week continues to be extremely popular amongst our customers with almost a billion hours of content being consumed during the event over the last ten years. Now, with the launch of Xfinity Rewards this year, we’re able to double down on providing our customers access to even more free content, alongside other great perks like $1 Movies, Discounts to Universal Parks and Resorts, Xfinity Mobile benefits, access to the latest Comcast technologies, and once-in-a-lifetime entertainment experience,” says Jason Wicht, Senior Vice President of Growth Operations. “It’s an exciting way for us to continue saying thank you, just for being a customer.”

 Xfinity Rewards, which was launched earlier this year, is a free program available to all eligible Xfinity customers nationwide. Signing up is simple to do through the Xfinity App or online at Xfinity.com/rewards. Upon registration, members will be assigned Silver, Gold, Platinum, or Diamond status based on how long they’ve been an Xfinity customer—and more rewards are accessible to those who have been with Xfinity the longest. Rewards are available immediately upon signing up for the program so members can start exploring and enjoying them right away with new opportunities added frequently throughout the year.
