As a former Comcast Xfinity subscriber, I wanted to get the best deal with TV and internet. I want to help you get the best value as well. So I’ve compiled every bit of information about Xfinity’s channel offerings.

Xfinity
This table lists what Xfinity television channels you can get on specific Comcast Xfinity TV plans.

Xfinity Comcast may lose the contracts to some channels on this list. Thus, the availability of these channels will change over time. Xfinity may also shuffle what plans support each channel at any time.

So do further research before using this list to help determine the right Xfinity TV plan.

How To Check My Xfinity Lineup?

Follow this link to the ‘My Channel Lineup’ page on Comcast Xfinity’s website. Upon opening the page, log in with your account’s credentials.

You’ll also see what channels Xfinity Comcast will remove.

Yes, they can remove channels. Because Comcast may have unsuccessful attempts at renegotiating contracts for the rights to use other network’s channels. So you’ll want to pay attention to the link I mentioned for changes.

Xfinity TV Packages

Here’s a breakdown of every Comcast Xfinity TV plan you can find:

TV PlanNumber of ChannelsCost Per Channel* Price (New Customers)Price (After Contract)
Basic/Choice10+$2–4.9$20–49/mo.NA
Extra/Popular125+$0.39–0.54$49.99–68/mo.$70/mo.
Preferred/Ultimate185+$0.32–0.42$59.99–78.50/mo.$88.50/mo.
Premier185+$0.32–0.42$89.99/mo.NA
This table shows different Xfinity TV packages in varying regions. It compares the number of channels, cost per channel, and price. The price for new customers and once the contract passes.

Important:

These prices don’t include Xfinity’s $24.95 per month broadcast TV fee. Or the $9.95 per month regional sports fee. And these prices include the $10 a month discount you get from enabling the paperless and automatic billing features on your account.

You can only avoid the sports fee by not getting a plan that includes Regional Sports channels. And there’s no way to avoid the broadcast fee.

* These numbers will vary based on location and time. Xfinity Comcast may also add taxes to your transaction. This will increase the amount you pay based on your local and state taxes.

Preferred/Ultimate and Premier offer the lowest price per channel. And sometimes, when you bundle with other services (like internet), you may get free Premium Channels. Depending on Xfinity’s current promotions.

Premier and Preferred/Ultimate are virtually identical. You can only get Premier if you live in the Northeastern United States.

Once you pass the initial 12, 24, or 36 months of using Xfinity TV, you’ll have to pay up to an additional $50 more. You COULD contact Comcast Xfinity’s customer support and try to negotiate with them.

This table presents all the channels you will find on Xfinity’s Preferred/Ultimate TV plan.

Xfinity Premier Channel Lineups (Northeastern Division)

The Xfinity Premier tier includes every channel that Ultimate/Preferred has. The differences between Premier and Preferred/Ultimate lie in these factors:

  • Price
  • You can only get Premier in Northeastern states
  • Channel numbers: these will likely differ by region

If you’re not in that area nor plan on moving there, you won’t need to worry about this plan.

Comcast Xfinity 4K Channel Lineup

You can only watch certain sports events in 4K with Xfinity that include massive sporting events (like the Olympics). Otherwise, they don’t have any specific 4K UHD channels.

You can, however, use the Xfinity Flex to watch 4K-supported streaming apps on your TV. That’s the best way you can utilize Xfinity on your TV.

Or if you use devices like the NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro or Roku Ultra to upscale Xfinity Stream content to 4K. Upscaling is when hardware will increase the incoming resolution.

You won’t have as much detail as native 4K. In my experience with the NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro, you’ll get pretty close.

You’ll have to pay for each of these Premium Channels individually. However, if you were to get HBO, you can also watch HBO Family, HBO Latino, and other channels under its umbrella.

Otherwise, you’ll have to pay separate subscription fees for each premium channel.

Sometimes you may get free Premium Channels as a promotion when you bundle certain Xfinity services. Here’s an example:

This is a 1,200 Mbps internet speed and 185+ channels bundle. It includes HBO Max and SHOWTIME free.

That’s at least $27 a month’s worth of value included.

You can manage your Premium Channels through the Xfinity My Account mobile app. Or log in to your Xfinity account by typing the following into your browser: customer.Xfinity.com.

Upon logging in, scroll down to the section labeled ‘Need To Change Something?’ and you’ll see a box labeled ‘Manage Premium Channels.’

From there, tap or click on the checkboxes by each channel to add or remove them from your account.
