Comcast announced Thursday that beginning Friday, through Sunday, all Chattanooga Xfinity TV digital customers, including those that do not currently subscribe to Showtime, will get a “freeview” of Showtime content on Xfinity On Demand, Xfinity TV.com and through the Xfinity TV app. Customers will have free access to Showtime season premieres, series premieres, award-winning original series and hit movies.
“Comcast is always looking for new ways to serve our Chattanooga customers,” said Jim Weigert, vice president and general manager for Comcast in Chattanooga. “We are pleased to be able to give our customers a free sample of the outstanding programs Showtime has to offer, at home, on-line or on the go from their smart device.”
The free Showtime preview will begin Friday and last through the weekend, ending on Sunday. Highlights include the following:
Series premiere of House of Lies, a new series starring Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, about a group of management consultants, who stop at nothing to get business deals done.
Season premiere of Californication, a Hollywood based dramedy about a book writer, played by David Duchovny, who is always running into trouble.
Season premiere of Shameless, a series starring William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum about a wild, unapologetically “shameless” family.
Popular movies such as The King’s Speech, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Blue Valentine.
Episodes from TV series like The Big C, Weeds, Episodes, Dexter and Homeland.
Showtime Sports including Championship Boxing and Strikeforce MMA.
Customers can access the “freeview” by visiting their Xfinity On Demand menu and selecting Top Picks or by choosing Showtime in the Premium Channels menu section. Customers can also access the “freeview” online at XfinityTV.com and through their Xfinity TV app.
