The service, which costs $5 per month, includes over 10,000 free online movies and TV shows — including livestreaming TV — from ESPN3, Xumo LLC, Pluto Inc., Tubi TV, Cheddar, YouTube LLC and more. It will also allow users to browse and access programming across apps such as Netflix Inc., Amazon Prime, HBO (US) and Showtime (US).

"For just five dollars a month, we can offer these customers an affordable, flexible, and differentiated platform that includes thousands of free movies and shows for online streaming, an integrated guide for accessing their favorite apps and connected home devices, and the ease of navigating and managing all of it with our voice remote," Matt Strauss, executive vice president of Xfinity Services for Comcast Cable, said in a March 21 news release.

Xfinity Flex is packaged with an internet-connected 4K streaming device, which comes with a voice remote as well as Comcast's home Wi-Fi, mobile, security and automation services.

The Xfinity Flex service will allow users to see which devices are connected to their network, set parental controls, pause Wi-Fi access and access camera feeds.

Comcast earlier launched the Comcast Business' X1 video platform for bars, restaurants, hotels, gyms and other businesses across its footprint in the U.S. Comcast's NBC News is also gearing up to launch a new streaming service, called NBC News Now.
