Comcast brings Amazon Music to Xinfinity

Comcast has announced the launch of Amazon Music on Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex, marking the first time the ad-free and on demand streaming service will be available directly on the TV through a pay-TV provider.

The service will roll out “over the next few weeks” and will be accessible alongside the other content available on the service.

Users who are also Amazon Prime members can say “Amazon Music” into their remotes to browse.

“We’re thrilled to bring the Amazon Music experience to Xfinity customers starting today,” stated Ryan Redington, director of Amazon Music. “Now Amazon Music listeners can effortlessly explore millions of songs, including the latest releases by their favorite artists, and much more directly through Xfinity.”

Nancy Spears, vice president, Business Operations and Strategy at Comcast Cable said: “Music makes up a big part of people’s favorite entertainment experiences and we’re thrilled to add Amazon Music’s huge library to our X1 and Flex platforms. Amazon Prime Video quickly became one of the most-viewed services on X1 following its launch last year, so we are excited to expand our collaboration and enable our customers to also enjoy Amazon Music on the biggest screen in the home.”

This announcement continues the relationship between Comcast and Amazon, which saw Prime Video launched on X1 last year.
