You know I’m all about convenience, right? That’s why I was so excited to be invited to check Xfinity’s new store in Cherry Hill! The location is so perfect, you grab a latte, finish your shopping spree and head to relax and check their new features out!
I’ve learned all about some of their great features such as their great apps, which give you power to control your TV, home and security systems at your fingertips, on the go :
Xfinity Connect app:
Will change the way you experience TV. Some features include X1 voice remote, integrated Xfinity apps, Common Sense Media, Kids Zone, X1 DVR with Cloud Technology, personalized recommendations and now Netflix too (Netflix release below)!
Comcast’s total home security and automation solution. Features include 24/7 professional security monitoring, at home or on the go access to your home security system, live video monitoring, remote thermostat control, real-time text and email alerts, battery and cellular back-up, rules to have your system work together and more.
We talked about Connect, but there’s many others including Xfinity TV app – where you can take your shows with you, download and watch anywhere – Xfinity My Account app where you can manage your account, change your WiFi password, pay your bills and so much more…even troubleshoot and schedule service!

But my most favorite news was about Netflix content which is now fully integrated into Xfinity On Demand, enabling X1 customers to watch past and current seasons of shows like The Blacklist, How To Get Away With Murder or The Walking Dead; explore popular Netflix original series like House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black and Stranger Things; or catch up on recent classics like Breaking Bad, LOST and Mad Men, all in one place.
By combining the TV libraries of Netflix and Xfinity On Demand, X1 customers can:
· Launch the Netflix app by simply saying “Netflix” into the X1 voice remote.
· Browse Netflix content alongside other On Demand movies and shows
· Search for an actor like “Adam Sandler” or “Kevin Spacey” and see everything they are in, across both Xfinity and Netflix.
· Start from the beginning of long-running shows like The Walking Dead or Scandal — with all prior seasons from Netflix and the current season from Xfinity — available in one place.
Current X1 and Netflix customers will be prompted to sign in when accessing the Netflix service on X1 for the first time. New Netflix customers will be able to sign up for a new Netflix membership directly on X1, have the service added to their Comcast bill and begin to immediately explore and enjoy the service on X1 or across devices.

More than selling tech gadgets, or competing with large stores, the concept was to offer a curated selection to make the customer’s options easier while at the store, to match their needs with new possibilities!
I personally love that you can program your locks and let people in and out without giving them the key!
I love the convenience of traveling abroad and yet, having access to your Xfinity content on your device and make calls as well! It would have saved me so much money If I had had that when I went to Brazil! My carrier overages killed me! All I needed was to access a WiFi and I would have access to all these amazing features!
I also love as a Latina, that Xfinity has a whole option to view titles and channels in Spanish and you can use your voice activated control to access that! This alone, tells me that #XfinityEnEspanol is forward thinking and in tune with the Hispanic Market needs!
It was great finding out that the future is here and that Xfinity has many other surprises in store for us in 2017! I can’t wait to share more with you in the new year!
Here is our FBlive video, hope you enjoy learning even more about it. I had the privilege of experiencing it first hand with Jenn B. Vice President of Communications for Comcast:
Hope you’ve enjoyed learning all about the new Cherry Hill Store in New Jersey and features and that you stop by the next time you are in the area!
Can’t wait to hear what you think. As usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
