CBS All Access to Become Available on Xfinity X1 and Flex Boxes

By Gabriela Vatu / January 9, 2020

CBS All Access is expanding its platform reach later this month as it becomes available for Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex boxes.

According to a newly renewed content carriage agreement between ViacomCBS and Comcast, CBS All Access will become available for Xfinity subscribers via the Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex boxes. The same deal allows Comcast to continue transmitting 23 CBS-owned stations in 15 markets in the United States. The list includes Showtime, CBS Sports Network, Smithsonian Channel, and Pop TV.

Comcast is boasting about the move because it means it will be the first cable or satellite TV provider in the US to offer the CBS All Access app. Of course, it doesn't mean that if you're an Xfinity user you'll get to watch CBS All Access for free - this is a subscription-based service, after all. But, as long as you pay for the service, you'll get to watch it via the Comcast box. CBS All Access already works on iOS and Android phones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, Samsung Smart TVs, Roku, PS4, Xbox One, and more, so there's no shortage of devices you can watch the content on.
