Clear your calendar for #XFINITY #Watchathon week #XFINITYreviewer

Are you a binge watcher? I am! In-fact I’ll admit to being the queen of “just one more episode”. When I fall into a series I want to keep going, not wait a week to see what happens next. If you can relate than you need to start clearing your calender for this year’s Xfinity Watchathon Week (April 6-12)!


Get your snacks ready, and get comfy because Xfinity is Offering access to 215 shows across more than 40 premium, cable and broadcast channel.

This year, quality is king, and Xfinity is giving customers an opportunity to catch up on every episode of the most-buzzed about new shows including American Crime, CSI: Cyber, Dig, Empire, Finding Carter, Fresh off the Boat, Last Man on Earth, The Last Ship, Madam Secretary, Outlander and The Royals. They’ll also be able to go back to the very beginning of award-winning series like The Affair, Black Sails, Game of Thrones, Girls, House of Lies, Orphan Black, Penny Dreadful, Power, Ray Donovan, The Sopranos, True Detective, Vikings and The Wire.

“Watchathon Week continues to be one of the most anticipated events of the year as the number of really great, high-quality TV series has reached an all-time high,” said Andy Hunter, Vice President of Programming for Comcast Cable. “Xfinity On Demand has become the go-to destination for catching up and staying current on all of the programming available today. Watchathon enables us to take that to the next level by unlocking the biggest and best TV content of the year for the ultimate TV binge week.”

Xfinity is also adding a sweepstakes to this year’s bingefest, that will offer viewers the chance to win a $20,000 grand prize, show-themed vacations (including a GoT-themes trip to Northern Ireland, and an Outlander-themed getaway to Scotland), and a daily giveaway of a “Binge Box” containing a mini tablet, headphones, snacks, and other items.

    Love the Blacklist. Never actually seen Nashville, I had meant to watch a bit of it before I actually went to the city last year but never did. Maybe I’ll use this week to catch up!

    We’ve been trying to catch up on great shows too, we don’t have a regular schedule where we will be home on certain nights for show times. I want to watch Scandal and the Good Wife.

      Cynthia, The good Wife is one of my all time favorite shows! Scandal is also very good. Can’t go wrong with those choices.
