Comcast announced that it will launch Amazon Music on its Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex on demand streaming service.

In the first pay-TV collaboration, Amazon Music will be integrated throughout the X1 and Flex user interface. Customers can say “Amazon Music” into the voice remote to instantly access millions of songs and thousands of playlists and stations.

Rolling out over the next few weeks, Amazon Music will be delivered over the Internet and accessible on X1 right alongside all of the live, on demand, and web content already available on the platform. Additionally, Amazon Music is now available on Xfinity Flex, Comcast’s recently launched service for Internet-only customers that enables them to enjoy many of their favorite streaming entertainment experiences on the big screen, while also offering them a TV-connected device to manage their digital home.

With Amazon Music, Prime members have access to more than two million curated songs and thousands of playlists and stations at no additional cost to their membership, and access to more than 50 million songs and thousands of playlists and stations with Amazon Music Unlimited, the premium subscription tier.

Last year, Comcast and Amazon launched Prime Video on X1, enabling Xfinity customers to seamlessly access Prime Video’s originals and catalog of thousands of premium shows, movies, and live events via Xfinity on Demand or through the Prime Video app.

Nancy Spear, VP, Business Operations and Strategy, Comcast Cable
Music makes up a big part of people’s favorite entertainment experiences and we’re thrilled to add Amazon Music’s huge library to our X1 and Flex platforms. Amazon Prime Video quickly became one of the most-viewed services on X1 following its launch last year, so we are excited to expand our collaboration and enable our customers to also enjoy Amazon Music on the biggest screen in the home.
