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 May 11-17, 2020.
The Watchathon includes free access to many of the most popular shows and movies from, SHOWTIME®, STARZ®, HBO® and, for the first time ever, Hulu! Here’s the press release.
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?

Content will be available to Xfinity customers via X1, Flex, or Xfinity Stream to catch popular series, movies, and more from May 11 – 17.
