Ready to talk gear? Xfinity offers the following gadgetry to go with your TV package or bundle. Most of them include an additional monthly fee.
The X1 is Xfinity’s highly rated DVR/receiver and TV service. Each box costs an additional $7.50 a month. But if you don’t need or want the X1’s special features, you won’t save money by choosing a standard HD TV box. They’re also $7.50 a month for each box.
Data as of post date. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.
Depending where you’re located, and what’s in stock, you’ll get one of three Xfinity X1 models.
The X1 Cloud DVR service lets you save shows and view them on your X1, the Xfinity Stream app, and the Xfinity Stream website. Most packages include 20 hours of DVR storage, but you can upgrade to 150 hours ($10.00/mo.) or 300 hours ($20.00/mo.) of storage during the checkout process.
If you’d like to watch your Xfinity content on another TV, you can pay $7.50 a month for an extra X1 DVR—or choose a non-DVR Xfinity TV box for $7.50 a month to use on the additional TV. The non-DVR boxes can set and play recordings, but not store them (they’ll be on your primary X1 DVR).
It’s important to note here that Xfinity sends out various models of non-DVR X1 boxes. One, the RNG150N, is not compatible with the Xfinity voice remote. If you want that sweet hands-free navigation, you might want to ask an Xfinity rep which box you should expect in your region.

What is Xfinity Flex? We’re so glad you asked. If you have an Xfinity internet plan, but not TV service, and you don’t see a TV plan or bundle that fits your budget, consider Xfinity Flex, the provider’s free streaming device/service.
Flex houses free livestreaming and on-demand apps like Pluto, Tubi, Xumo, and YouTube (plus many more). That means you’ll have a combined library of 200+ live channels and countless on-demand titles (including 10,000+ movies and TV shows from Xfinity alone). Xfinity even provides free access to NBC’s Peacock Premium streaming service.
You can also use Flex to watch (or listen to) your HBO, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, Prime Video, and Spotify subscriptions, which is supremely convenient.
To get in on this action, request your Xfinity Flex box. You can add an extra Flex for $5 a month (limit two boxes total).

- Accessibility features (closed captioning, video description, voice guidance)
