Xfinity TV Watchathon Week – Comcast Cable
Launched in March 2013, Watchathon tapped into the cultural phenomenon of binge viewing and allowed Xfinity TV customers to mass consume their favorite series for free across Xfinity On Demand, and the Xfinity TV Player app. It was an undisputed success and reminded cable customers of the kind of value that authenticated content can create when paired with traditional linear TV. The effort delivered almost 4K hours of unrestricted access to TV series content across Xfinity On Demand platforms, including 3,500 episodes of award-winning, top-rated and recently premiered shows. Viewers loved it. And we already want more.
