Free Comcast Watchathon. Comcast is having their annual Watchathon Week! Let the binge watching begin! All Comcast X1 subscribers can watch, for free, certain premium channels from April 27-May 3, 2021.
The Watchathon includes free access to many of the most popular shows and movies. Xfinity customers can enjoy free access to the best shows from Hulu, HBO Max™, Peacock, SHOWTIME®, STARZ, and more via X1, Flex, and Xfinity Stream. Here’s the press release.
4/28/21 update: Some channels are only available on certain platforms on certain dates. More info here.
Of course Comcast doesn’t offer the Watchathon Week out of the kindness of their hearts. It’s an attempt to sucker us into upgrading our service. Don’t do it! It might be a good week to take some time off work. Or watch on your phone while commuting or on your lunch hour. Start your list of shows and movies to watch now!
Fun fact: If you cancel your $50 a month cable premium upgrade and invest the money at 5% over 30 years you will have $41,856. At $100 a month you would have $83,713. Is it really worth it to watch Game of Thrones?
