NETFLIX NOW AVAILABLE ON COMCAST’S XFINITY
Comcast users who also have a Netflix subscription will be able to watch all content available through both services in one place
Comcast announced that Netflix will be available through its cable box, the X1 Platform, to all of its customers across the country starting next week. Comcast’s Xfinity users, who are also Netflix subscribers, will be able to easily browse and access the extensive online collection of the streaming service alongside the live, on demand, DVR, and web programming included with their Xfinity TV subscription.
“We are excited to add Netflix to X1 and give our customers access to all the content they love in a way that has never been done before,” said Neil Smit, the Chief Executive Officer at Comcast Cable. “Netflix has been a terrific partner, and our incredible teams of engineers and designers have come together to create an experience that is not only seamless and intuitive, but also lets viewers search and watch tens of thousands of movies, shows, specials and documentaries with the sound of their voice.”
Netflix content will be fully integrated into Xfinity On Demand, enabling X1 customers to watch past and current seasons of shows like The Blacklist, El Señor de los Cielos and The Walking Dead; explore popular Netflix original series like Narcos, House of Cards, and Stranger Things; or catch up on recent classics like Breaking Bad, Sin Senos No Hay Paraiso, and Mad Men, all in one place.
“The Netflix integration into the X1 platform means our mutual customers will no longer need to change inputs or juggle remotes,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Now they can seamlessly move between the Netflix app and their cable service, enjoying all the TV shows and movies they love without hassle.”
By combining the TV libraries of Netflix and Xfinity On Demand, X1 customers can:
- Launch the Netflix app by simply saying “Netflix” into the X1 voice remote.
- Browse Netflix content alongside other On Demand movies and shows
- Search for an actor like “Gael Garcia Bernal” or “Kevin Spacey” and see all the related titles across Xfinity and Netflix.
- Start watching from the beginning long-running shows like The Walking Dead or Señora Acero – prior seasons on Netflix and the current season on Xfinity On Demand – all in one place.
Current Netflix customers will have to sign-in to their account through the X1 platform only the first time of use, while those who don’t have a membership to the streaming service can subscribe using the same platform, choose to have it added to their Comcast bill, and begin to immediately explore and enjoy Netflix on the X1 and across other devices.
When MARCO POLO first arrived on Netflix – I was like, “What the hell…I’ll try it.” YOOOOOO!!! I’m so glad I did. This Netflix Original Series is pretty sweet!
I literally watched episode after episode…slept…watch more and finished it! (lol) I even got my boy DJ Wicked hooked on the series. You can say we’ve been patiently waiting for season 2 to arrive. (lol)
People…if you like watching GUUUUUUUUUUD stuff, martial arts and…HOT gals who can whoop ass…watch this series! It’s dope.
If you get your hands on a blu-ray copy like I did. Seriously watch the special features. Good stuff people…especially The Martial Arts of Marco Polo and Fight Scenes Rehearsals. Oh…the gag real is funny as well – – the show is so serious – it was funny to see the cast having fun. (lol) Once you’re done with the special features – you’ll realize that A LOT goes into making this series.
Season 2. I’m ready…actually…I’ve been ready.

Four everyday suburban guys come together to form a neighborhood watch group, but only as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood–and the world–from total extermination.
OK. I liked this one (lol)…even though it has a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes I didn’t think it was THAT bad. (lol) I thought it was a fun movie…a little predictable…but fun. Ben Stiller…I liked him. Vince Vaughn as a dad with an angry daughter…HILARIOUS. Jonah Hill as this wanna be Rambo cop…HILARIOUS. Richard Ayoade…not sure what else he’s been in…but…he fits right along side the crew. I think THE WATCH is worth a watch…ha. Get it?! Ok – never mind. (lol)
I give THE WATCH… 3 out of 4 popcorns!
Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director, co-writer and leading man, RZA–alongside an exciting international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu–tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold. Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
So I watched THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS the other night and I was little disappointed with this one. It just fell flat for me…and I soooooo wanted to REALLY like this one. It did have some high points though – some of the fight scenes were cool. Russell Crowe was cool to watch. Lucy Liu was killer…literally and Jamie Chung…sexy and deadly. I think if they wouldn’t have been in it…I wouldn’t have watched at all.
Some of the ‘blahhhhsss’ of the movie – – the fight scenes weren’t long enough for me. Couldn’t have used more blood. I remember watching Saturday morning Kung Fu movies and there was always a lot of blood…Blood’s cool. (lol) Another thing for me – RZA. I’m sorry RZA fans…he just didn’t do it for me. Just couldn’t see him in this movie. I couldn’t feel him in G.I. JOE: RETALIATION either. The Wu-Tang Clan is great…just keep RZA out of movies. (lol)
Anyone else see it? Let me know what YOU thought.
I give THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS… 2 out of 5 popcorns!
