Disney+ and ESPN+ have officially started rolling out on Comcast Xfinity, giving X1 and Flex customers easy access to the streaming platforms. Tens of millions of customers will soon have access to Disney+ in an easy-to-use, state-of-the-art user interface, and ESPN+ is now available to Flex customers via the ESPN app, with plans to launch on X1 in the coming weeks.
X1 and Flex customers can simply say “Disney+” or “ESPN+” into the Xfinity Voice Remote to access the platforms, or be even more specific with which title or program they want to watch, like “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” or “Stephen A’s World.”
“With the launch of Disney+ and ESPN+, our X1 and Flex customers will now be able to enjoy all the best entertainment from today’s most popular streaming services on one device that makes it easy for them to find their favorite programming, or discover something new,” said Rebecca Heap, Senior Vice President, Video and Entertainment, Comcast Cable.
“The launch of Disney+ and ESPN+ on Comcast’s Xfinity platforms comes at an opportune time with the new Disney+ Original series from Marvel Studios ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ in full swing, the return of Coach Gordon Bombay in a new series ‘The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,’ and “Secrets of the Whales” from National Geographic premiering on Earth Day. It will be a big April on ESPN+ too with UFC 261, the start of MLB and MLS seasons, The Masters, and more,” said Michael Paull, President, Disney+ and ESPN+.
