* Some channels require bundling with Xfinity internet service.

Xfinity advertises 220–260+ live TV channels in Premier, its top-tier TV package. That means that Xfinity guarantees at least 220–260 channels in Premier plus the possibility of more. By our count, Premier currently has 288 channels—that’s every non-premium channel Xfinity carries.

But get this—the next plan down, Preferred, which Xfinity says has 200–220+ channels also has 288 channels.  We’re not sure why both plans now include all of Xfinity’s available channels. Wouldn’t you go with the cheaper package (Preferred) if it has the same content? We would.

See below to read more about Premier’s channels, plus the various premium channels and channel packs you can add to your plan (for a fee).

Popular channels available with Xfinity Premier

Xfinity Premier has all of the top 30 most popular channels1—with all but four of those in high-definition (HD). That’s the same amount of HD channels as Preferred, and one more HD channel than Starter.

(Adult Swim and Cartoon Network are the same channel, but Variety1 lists Adult Swim at #30 and Cartoon Network at #50. Xfinity rightly considers Cartoon Network a single channel and does not list Adult Swim separately.)

Sports channels available with Xfinity Premier

Only two of Premier’s 23 sportsball channels aren’t in HD (the SD channels are Olympic Channel and Stadium). And while it’s fun to say “sportsballs,” we’d be remiss not to mention that Premier’s sports channels cover all sports—not just the ones that involve balls. So rejoice, NASCAR and disc golf fans.

Inclusion and diversity channels available with Xfinity Premier

Why include channels focused on inclusion and diversity? Because it’s nice to be included. Premier has 27 channels that tell stories by and for the LGBTQ+ community, people of color, Spanish speakers, and women. To be fair, there’s only one LGBTQ+ channel in Xfinity’s regular channel packs—but you can add the HERE TV on-demand channel for $7.99 a month.
