Comcast users will soon get better Amazon Prime Video integration. Comcast and Amazon announced today that the Prime Video service will launch over the next week on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 service. X1 customers will be able to search Prime Video programming and enjoy exclusive Prime Originals without the need for a third-party system. It’s a pretty great time to dive into Prime Video, which is now streaming “Homecoming” with Julia Roberts, “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “The Romanoffs,” “Goliath,” “Bosch,” “The Man in the High Castle,” “The Grand Tour” and more, all in 4K Ultra HD and HDR. You can checkout the entire collection of Prime originals on amazon.com/prime.
“We are thrilled to give X1 customers access to Amazon Prime Video just in time for the holidays,” said Matt Strauss, Executive Vice President, Xfinity Services, Comcast Cable. “Prime Video is a fantastic extension of the programming choices available to our customers. By integrating hundreds of thousands of live and on demand choices from the best networks, studios and streaming services, our customers can instantly search, control and watch all of their entertainment in one place with their voice.”
Customers can just say, “Watch The Americans,” ”Show me Sneaky Pete,” or “Find comedies” into the voice remote to access the content. Customers can also simply launch the Prime Video app by saying “Amazon Prime Video” into the voice remote, or by navigating to the X1 apps menu.
”Streaming Prime Originals is now easier than ever for our Prime members with X1,” said Greg Hart, Vice President of Amazon Prime Video. “The launch arrives just in time for Season 2 of Emmy-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Season 3 of The Grand Tour and holiday classics like It’s A Wonderful Life, which is now available exclusively on Prime Video.”
There’s also a wide-array of family-oriented content in Prime Kids Originals. There you will find hits like “Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny,” “Pete The Cat,” “Tumble Leaf,” “Just Add Magic,” “Lost in Oz” and “The Stinky & Dirty Show”.
