Spotify Launches on Comcast's Xfinity Flex and X1

Users of Comcast's Infinity Flex and X1 platforms can now listen to Spotify tracks and podcasts on their televisions through those platforms.

Starting today, all Xfinity Flex customers can say “Spotify” into their Xfinity voice remote and log in with existing credential to access Spotify's free or premium service levels. Spotify also began rolling out to X1 customers today, as an Internet app alongside the live, on demand and streaming content on the platform.
