As part of the expansion of TV+ across Comcast services, Apple will be offering Xfinity customers access to the "first seasons of many of its most popular shows, as well as the blockbuster Apple Original film “Greyhound" for free, without any sign up required.

Customers who are not currently subscribed to ‌Apple TV+‌ will be able to receive a three-month free trial of the streaming platform when they sign up on their Xfinity device by April 25.

‌Apple TV+‌'s expansion to Comcast services was teased by the company's CEO in October. "Our work with Comcast lights up that experience for tens of millions of new devices, and we are thrilled that so many Comcast customers have a compelling way to enjoy their new favorite shows on ‌Apple TV+‌," said Peter Stern, Apple's vice president of services.

Wasn’t there supposed to be a (an?) Xfinity AppleTV streaming app as part of this launch?

Yes. Still waiting for Xfinity Stream on my Apple TV 4K. Really don’t care if Apple TV+ is on my X1. It’s already on everything else I have.

Yes, it's time to give us what we really want which is the AppleTV Stream app so we can ditch all the expensive monthly charges for multiple TV boxes. It's already ridiculous I pay over $20 in "fees". In general, I feel like "streaming" services are headed to cable prices. I had to ditch Hulu+Live TV because it was getting over $90/month.

Maybe we'll finally get single sign on with Comcast.

And maybe we'll also get world peace and a delicious calorie-free ice cream.
