Xumo, the free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) service, is now available on Comcast’s Xfinity X1 platform, the company announced on Monday morning. This is Xumo’s largest pay-TV partnership to date and is now available in more than 35 million households in the U.S.

Comcast subscribers with an Xfinity X1 box will be able to find Xumo by searching for the service in the apps section or by saying “Xumo” into their X1 voice remote.

“We’re focused on bringing our service to the most popular devices available and have expanded to a record number of new platforms this year alone,” Xumo’s senior vice president of product Chris Hall said. “Partners like Comcast are embracing FAST apps like Xumo that provide easy access to a wealth of additional top-quality programming.”`

Additionally, the service is now available on more than 10 Android TV-supported devices, including select Sony smart TV models, Nvidia Shield, and Xiaomi Mi Box. The new partnerships increase the availability of the service in the U.S. to over 30 different devices.

Launched in 2011, Xumo offers over 160 digital channels of free programming across 12 genres, including sports, news, kids and family entertainment, live events, comedy, lifestyle, and movies. The Irvine, California-based company streams on-demand and live content from companies like CBSN, PeopleTV, NBC News, Food52, History, and PGA TOUR.
