According to the service provider, music consumption among its TV and broadband users has grown exponentially by double digits year-over-year – a trend significantly boosted by populations working from home during these COVID-19 quarantine times. Effective this week, all of Spotify’s 50 million music tracks and 1 million plus podcasts are available on Xfinity.
“Music streaming on Xfinity X1 and Flex is at an all-time high,” said Rebecca Heap, Comcast Cable’s SVP of Video and entertainment. “We’re pleased our customers will now be able to enjoy Spotify’s Free and Premium tiers and extensive library of on demand music, curated playlists and podcasts right on the TV alongside the growing catalog of entertainment already available on these platforms, adding even more great value to their Xfinity service.”
To access Spotify on Xfinity X1 or Flex, customers can simply say “Spotify” into their Xfinity Voice Remote, with the platform showing up as an option in search results for specific songs, artists or podcasts. Additionally, users can login or create an account directly on X1 or Flex devices and have immediate access to the free, ad-supported version of the service. Comcast offers a range of other music and audio streaming services on X1 and Flex including Pandora, Amazon Music, Radio.com, iHeartRadio, XITE, NPR One, Music Choice, Stingray Music and Baeble.
