Comcast will celebrate Native American Heritage Month this November by offering a collection of free movies, TV specials and music to digital Xfinity TV customers on television, online and on mobile devices.

All programming will be available on Xfinity On Demand, and select content will also be on Xfinity.com/TV and Xfinity TV Go.

"Xfinity TV is proud to bring the rich culture of the Native American community through relevant content available to customers on our platforms,” said Ruben Mendiola, Vice President and General Manager of Multicultural Services, Comcast Cable. "We feel our new partnerships with Red Nation and LA Skins will help deliver significant content to a much broader audience, and we plan to continue to bring customers even more relevant cultural programming in the future."

The film festivals, which feature content produced by and about Native Americans, include the following features, documentaries and short films:

Additionally, classics like The Last of the Mohicans, Windtalkers and other feature films will be available for rent on Xfinity On Demand.
