“Our Xfinity TV customers now have access to hundreds of movies and shows they can own digitally and enjoy anywhere, on any device,” said Michael Schreiber, Senior Vice President of Content Acquisition at Comcast. “Our digital store was a hit with customers from day one, and we expect continued success with the addition of the incredible film and television content from MGM.”

“MGM is thrilled to join the Comcast store and to offer its premiere content, including our newest film releases and television series, to Xfinity customers,” said Damien Marin, Senior Vice President, Domestic Pay TV & Worldwide Digital Media. “Through Xfinity, Comcast provides an incredible platform for subscribers to enjoy MGM’s latest releases including RoboCop, Carrie and Vikings as well as beloved movies such as Rocky and The Silence of the Lambs.

Their content can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime, on their TV, PC or mobile devices. Purchased titles are added to customers’ On Demand menus, which are easily accessible on the TV, online or via the Xfinity On Demand Purchases app.
