XFINITY LGBTQ Joins Watchathon

TV’s biggest binge-watching week just got a whole lot gayer!

XFINITY Watchathon Week is almost upon us! Returning for its fifth-straight year, Watchathon gives customers the chance to enjoy many of the hottest TV shows from broadcast, cable and premium networks–all free with XFINITY On Demand. This is the LGBTQ Film & TV Destination’s first Watchathon, and you better believe we intend to turn it out. Our inaugural year will be nothing short of spectacular. Think: Gaga at the Superbowl Halftime Show. I couldn’t convince any of my colleagues to jump off the roof of the building with me, though, so you’ll just have to live without that image.

Here TV Unrestricted Mega-Binge

Find your perfect partner in binge-watching bliss. Looking for someone who’s well-traveled? Maybe someone to make you laugh? How about a drama queen? They’re all there with Here TV, and they’re all free. Best part is, if you aren’t feeling your choice you only need to grab your remote to switch it up! You can’t do that with a Tinder date, now can you?
