Comcast has announced plans for its second Xfinity Watchathon Week, which brings together the hottest content from the biggest networks for free on Xfinity On Demand.

Watchathon kicks off on Monday, and customers with Xfinity On Demand service will have free access to 5,000-plus episodes of more than 130 TV series.

Customers can watch the entire current season of hit shows including "Bates Motel,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Chicago PD,” “Downton Abbey,” “The Mindy Project,” “Nashville,” “Suits” and “The Walking Dead,” and go back to the very beginning of acclaimed series like “Black Sails,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” Friday Night Lights, “House of Lies,” “Parks & Recreation” and “Parenthood.”

In total, Xfinity TV customers will have access to more than 40 percent more choices this year: 5,000-plus episodes from more than 130 series from 48 premium, cable and broadcast networks, many of which are available across Xfinity On Demand platforms (TV, Xfinity.com, television and the Xfinity TV Go app for tablets and smartphones).

“Watchathon Week is TV-nirvana for every type of fan,” said Matt Strauss, senior vice president and general manager for Comcast. “Whether our customers decide to catch up on current shows their friends have been talking about all year or see as many different past programs as possible, Watchathon is a free, all-you-can-watch feast for the binger in all of us.”

Xfinity TV customers can catch up on hit shows like “Awkward,” “Californication,” “Orphan Black” and “Veep” before their new season premieres in April. At the same time, Watchathon is an opportunity to get current on programs like “Archer,” “Da Vinci’s Demons,” “Hannibal,” “The Millers,” “Justified” and “Trophy Wife” before this year’s season finale.

“Since last year’s event, we’ve steadily built our Xfinity On Demand platform with more of the season’s top shows and are able to make this year’s event bigger than ever,” Strauss said. “We can’t wait to hear how our customers choose to watch this year and see the fun they have doing it.”
