Beginning today, Xfinity TV customers will be able to purchase Warner Bros. movies and TV shows to own and access anytime, anywhere, on any device, often several weeks ahead of DVD release through the Xfinity On Demand digital store. The Xfinity On Demand platform provides customers with the most current content, where and when they want it.
Gravity, one of the top-grossing movies of 2013, earned 10 Academy Award nominations including Best Actress, Best Director and Best Picture and will be among the first titles for purchase, beginning February 11. Additional Warner Bros. titles that will become available for purchase include: 42, Argo, The Great Gatsby, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Man of Steel, Pacific Rim, Prisoners, We’re the Millers, The Conjuring, The Following, Getaway, The Hangover Part III, and Veronica Mars.
In November 2013, Comcast became the first pay-television provider in the country to sell Digital HD content for download and streaming. The company’s Xfinity TV customers quickly embraced the new feature and, according to Universal Pictures, helped make Comcast the nation’s top digital seller of Despicable Me 2 for the week ending December 3.
Comcast customers have the ability to purchase movies and television shows - often weeks before they are available to rent or purchase on Blu-ray and DVD - and store them, seamlessly, in the cloud. Their content can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime, on their TV, PC or mobile devices, without the hassle of managing discs or remembering passwords. Purchased titles are added to the customer’s On Demand menu which is easily accessible on the TV, online at XfinityTV.com or via the Xfinity On Demand Purchases app.
Comcast’s Digital HD catalog now includes content from FOX, Lionsgate, NBCUniversal and Warner Bros.
