Popular channels available with Xfinity Ultimate

Xfinity’s Ultimate package has all* of the top 30 most popular channels. And 26 of those are high-definition (HD) channels. That’s one more HD channel than the next plan down, Starter.

(*Variety1 lists Adult Swim at #30, while Cartoon Network sits at #50 on the publication’s list. They’re separate networks, but Adult Swim airs at night on Cartoon Network. So Xfinity considers Cartoon Network a single channel.)
