Xfinity X1 now has Amazon Prime Video

THIS IS A SPONSORED POST: I was compensated for this post. As always, all opinions are my own.

Recently, I attended an evening at the Revere Hotel hosted by Xfinity to announce their partnership with Amazon Prime Video. It was a wonderful evening, complete with a candy bar, a performance by a local Lindy hop group before watching the season two premiere of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on a large movie theatre style screen.

X1 customers can now easily search Prime Video programming, by easily pressing the voice button on your remote and say "Amazon Prime Video". You can enjoy exclusive Prime Originals including Homecoming with Julia Roberts, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and more.

Other things you can do with your X1 subscription is say "Free to me" in your voice remote to enjoy free movies or other content available with your subscription. Can’t name that song that’s playing on your TV? All you have to do is ask: “What song is this?”

Comcast offers its customers free downloadable apps so you can enjoy your entertainment and communications services while on the go no matter where you are.  These apps include:

  • Stream – The Xfinity Stream app makes cloud DVR and live-in home streaming on mobile devices possible for X1 customers.
  • Xfinity My Account – helps customers manage their Xfinity services.  For example, you can schedule a callback from a Comcast representative, set up service appointments, troubleshoot devices, change your Comcast account password, and adjust your WiFi settings in one tap.
  • Xfinity Connect – provides access to features including e-mail; call logs and call forwarding, Universal Address Book; also includes complimentary Voice2go access, letting customers take Xfinity Voice with them on the go virtually anywhere (including overseas)

Comcast Xfinity X1 now supports Netflix and your Home!

Hey guys! Glad to bring you some updates for Comcast Xfinity service here in Massachusetts. Their X1 service which is pretty cool now supports Netflix as well as your smart home! The Netflix service should now be supported on millions of X1 boxes across the country! We've been X1 customers for the better part of a year now and it's pretty great. Some new updates include faster internet service (by 33% at no cost) in addition to the Netflix service.

Netflix content will be fully integrated into Xfinity On Demand, enabling X1 customers to watch past and current seasons of shows available on Netflix. If you're a current Netflix customer you can just sign in through X1 to your Netflix account. It's super easy to use and you can just start it by pressing the voice command button on your X1 remote and say "Netflix". If you're new to Netflix, you can sign up through this partnership and the service will be added to your Comcast bill which will make things easier to pay since it will be on a single bill.

The other cool thing about this product is that when you use the Last button on your X1 remote you will see Netflix shows and movies as well as regular TV shows and on-demand items in the last viewed list.

As for Comcast Xfinity Home service, this service can be added to your existing subscription as a bundle and you will get the peace of mind home security along with your TV, internet and phone subscription. You can add different devices like cameras, Nest thermostats and other items. You get 24/7 professional home monitoring that can be armed and disarmed remotely, live video monitoring, and remote control of the entire system through your Xfinity apps on your iOS and Android device.

NOTE: We were provided with a Nest thermostat as well as a gift card for this review. No other compensation was provided.

Brrrrr.... It's cold! A science experiment...

Brrrrr.... It's cold! I decided to do a science experiment...

It's about 4 degrees outside and I've seen a bunch of people throw boiling water into the cold air and it evaporates, so I tried it myself.... Luckily, I threw it away from me as it didn't evaporate 100% so when it fell, it was still a little hot!

I captured it in slow motion because, well, everything is cooler in slow-motion (pun intended)!

Here's the video:
