COMCAST CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY, INTRODUCES NEW PERMANENT COLLECTION “BLACK HISTORY ALWAYS ON”

 

COMCAST CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY, INTRODUCES NEW PERMANENT COLLECTION

“BLACK HISTORY ALWAYS ON”

image001

 

With the intent of offering content that celebrates Black History year-round, Comcast launched a new permanent collection in the ‘Black Film & TV’ destination of Xfinity on Demand called “Black History Always On”.

This collection includes more than 100 titles of content including historical documentaries, biographical films, Comcast’s original Voices of the Civil Rights Movement profiles, specials from networks like Smithsonian Channel and more. It will serve as the permanent place on the Xfinity on Demand platform to learn about the achievements of African-American people year round.

In fact, a recent study by Nielsen DBS showed that over 60% of black millennials agree that it feels really good to see stars in media who share their ethnic background. That’s one of the reasons that this month the Black Film & TV destination includes a section called ‘Black Women Behind the Scenes,’ which puts a spotlight on women directors, producers, writers, costume designers, and even stunt doubles. Included in this section are intimate one-on-one conversations with talented women like Gina Prince Bythewood, Susan Fales Hill, Effie Brown, Kay Oyegun, LaFaye Baker, Quinta Brunson and Franchesca Ramsey to name a few. There are also a few men like Prentice Penny, David E. Talbert, Malcom D. Lee and Reggie Rock Bythewood weighing in. Comcast’s network partners also participated by capturing conversations with their women behind the camera including Tasha Smith and D’Angela Proctor for TV One, Zola Mashariki and Connie Orlando for BET, Terri J. Vaughn for Aspire and Lucy Chodota for The Africa Channel, to name a few.

Lastly, Comcast believes in independent black filmmaking. The company has officially announced a partnership with American Black Film Festival and BlackStar Film Festival to launch a special collection through our Streampix on demand service, which is licensing short and feature length films and webisodes from alumni filmmakers who screened their works at past festivals. With these new partnerships, Comcast is using the Xfinity on Demand platform to invest in the black filmmaking community and showcase its work to an even broader audience.

Comcast is proud to create and launch a collection of content and stories that parents can sit down with their kids and watch together, not just in February but whenever they choose, because for Xfinity, Black History is Always On.

Users can find all of this content in the ‘Black Film & TV’ destination, on X1 on demand, by selecting the On Demand menu and scrolling right or by saying “Black Film & TV” into the X1 Voice Remote.

So what are you waiting for? Happy watching! #BlackHistoryAlwaysOn #XfinityBH

Entertaining Ideas
What Kind Of TV Watcher Are You?

If you’re like most people, you simply cannot find the time to stay current with all the great TV that’s available. Fortunately, there’s Watchathon Week, an annual TV binge-athon that gives Xfinity TV customers free, unlimited access to the hottest shows from premium, cable and broadcast networks on Xfinity On Demand. With carte-blanche access to more than 250 series from April 18 – 24, there may be no better time to hunker down and catch-up on all you’ve been missing. What’s more, most of this great programming will also be available on-the-go via the Xfinity TV mobile app and website.

Of course, not everyone watches the same sort of shows. What kind of TV watcher are you?

The One-Show Die Hard:

You have no intention of moving from the couch until you finish your series from start to finish. Maybe you’ve heard co-workers gab about HBO’s Game of Thrones or you’ve heard good things about STARZ’s Power but never got around to watching. Or maybe you plan to use the week to watch every episode from every seasons of FOX’s The Simpsons. That’s right – every single episode (nearly 600 of them!) from the series are yours for the binging during the week. Here’s your chance to settle in, fire up your set-top box and let the episodes roll on Xfinity On Demand.

 

The One-Genre Fanatic:

Is any and all reality TV your thing? If so, use the week to catch up on current seasons of NBC’s The Voice, Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. If you prefer reality that broadens your horizons a bit more you can check out every episode from every season of Discovery’s hits Bering Sea Gold and Gold Rush. Just looking for some good drama? During Watchathon Week, you can follow the infamous trial of the O.J. Simpson case on FX’s American Crime Story or step into the historic worlds of History’s The Vikings and STARZ’s Outlander and Black Sails.  If you simply prefer to watch some laugh out loud comedy, USA’s Playing House, NBC’s Superstore, FOX’s The Grinder and TV Land’s Younger can put a smile on your face and prove a great option for when you’re in the need for something quick and light.

 

The Español Loyalist:

You know you’ve got options and choose to watch your entertainment in Español, because you can. Whether you’re a fan of telenovelas or looking for a new top rated show in English to obsess about in Spanish with SAP (secondary audio programming), Watchathon Week gives you free access to more of the programming you want in your language of preference. So what are you waiting for? Get in on the action today and catch up on all four seasons of Telemundo’s super series El Señor de los Cielos. You’ll also have access to programs available only during Watchathon Week like Nuestra Tele’s La Viuda de la Mafia and Pasiones’ Xica de Silva, as well all episodes of Telemundo’s Dueños del Paraiso and the current season of La Viuda Negra from UniMás.

 

The FOMO Inflicted:

In other words, do you have a “fear of missing out” and always want to be in the know with the latest pop culture developments? If so, Watchathon Week is your chance to catch up on current seasons of all the buzziest TV you’ve been missing, including the FOX’s Empire and AMC’s The Walking Dead. You can also check out the entire first season of the hot new shows that had everyone talking, including USA’s Mr. Robot, FOX’s Scream Queens, ABC’s Quantico and NBC’s Chicago Med.

 

The Indecisive:

Can’t make a decision? It’s hard when there are so many options. Don’t worry—Xfinity’s team of entertainment experts has you covered with a long list of recommendations on www.Xfinity.com/Watchathon to help you make the most of the week.

So, binge on.
