Big News: Xfinity and Netflix Integration!

This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Comcast New England. I received an Amazon gift card. All opinions, as always, are my own.

comcast, netflix, xfinity

I have a confession. I am dramatic-movie-obsessed, especially now that I’m pregnant. I just watched Into The Woods and Selma – amazing! I spent a considerable amount of time switching between my Comcast Xfinity and Netflix apps trying to find the right movie or show to engage me for a couple of hours. I have another confession. Switching between apps is exhausting. With baby #2 making his/her arrival in just a few months I’m on a journey to live a more minimalist life. This will hopefully mean a more zen home with less stuff and that goes for technology as well. Less is more as far as I’m concerned!

Earlier this fall I wrote a post about how Comcast, the nation’s largest video, high-speed and Internet and phone provider, is working tirelessly to make their customers experiences user friendly, convenient and seamless. And their newest announcement is a great addition to their goal. Want a more seamless viewing experience? Tired of switching between remotes (when you can find them)? Get excited because Comcast Xfinity and Netflix are now BFFs!

Comcast Xfinity and Netflix sitting in a tree…..why is this collaboration so amazing? “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 Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Comcast Cable. This news is incredibly exciting for me, a loyal Comcast Xfinity and Netflix customer because it means I have even more options in one place than ever, which makes me very happy.

Available on Xfinity On Demand, X1 Voice Remote or Netflix app customers can seamlessly browse an extensive catalog of shows and movies alongside live and on demand programming. During the week leading up to Halloween I indulged in the Halloween series on Xfinity live and it was awesome! I always seem to move towards On Demand and the live option offers another layer of options sure to fulfill whatever content you’re looking for.

If you are an existing Netflix customer it’s super easy to integrate the two apps. Simply sign-in Netflix service on X1 for the first time. Don’t have Netflix yet? I have three amazing reasons to join:

My favorite shows EVAH!

So to recap – this integration is AMAZING! Why?

  1. If you have a X1 voice remote simply say (or sing) “Netflix” in your remote to launch the Netflix app
  2. Search for your favorite shows, actors or movies across both Xfinity and Netflix (I’ve been on a Rachel Weisz kick and recently found this feature super amazing)
  3. Don’t get left out while your friends watch current shows. Easily watch the new shows from the first season all in one place
  4. Browse without switching apps

Signing up for Netflix is super easy and additionally Netflix customers can choose to add their Netflix service added to their existing Comcast bill. E-A-S-Y.

In the words of my soul sister Gwen Stefani…..

Shark Week is Here!!

I love nothing more than sitting by the ocean, taking in the sights, the smells, closing my eyes to listen to the water move gently, forcefully. There is something interestingly calm and relaxing about the crashing waves. Who doesn’t like lounging in a beach chair near the water and looking out into everything…and nothing. But what lurks underneath utterly freaks me out!

The great blue ocean, sharks, the unknown. I want nothing to do with it! You won’t catch me on a cruise, out boating, nope, not me!! I was forced into watching Shark Week a few years ago and was disgusted…and then intrigued. And every year I set aside some time to marvel in the mystery of these giant sea animals. Along with my fascination with my creatures has come my daughter’s love for seeing sharks in action, which I wasn’t prepared for!

It’s that time again, it’s Shark Week and as the Discovery Channel kicks-off their annual Shark Week this Sunday, August 12th, Disney Pixar would like share a very special message: Fish are Friends!

 

And who doesn’t love Finding Nemo and Anchor, Bruce & Chum! If you’ve got shark enthusiasts in your house, be sure to check out these Shark facts!
