Purchasing movies through Xfinity

It’s easier than ever to buy Xfinity On Demand movies. Sometimes you can even enjoy new releases weeks before they’re available on DVD or for rental. Here’s how to get started buying movies through Xfinity On Demand.

Participating digital retailer services

“If I purchase a Movies Anywhere eligible movie through another participating digital retailer service, can I watch it on Xfinity?” The answer is yes. To do so, the movie must be available with Xfinity On Demand, eligible for Movies Anywhere and both your Xfinity account and participating retailer accounts must be connected to Movies Anywhere. The movie will be added to your Xfinity account in the Saved → My Purchases area and you’ll be able to watch all the action unfold! Please note that Movies Anywhere movies should show up within about a minute after syncing to Movies Anywhere, but some titles may take up to 24 hours to appear on your Xfinity account.

Bring your eligible movies on these services to X1 and the Xfinity Stream app:


Disconnecting your Xfinity account from Movies Anywhere

If you’d like to disconnect your Xfinity account from Movies Anywhere, just follow these steps on the Movies Anywhere website or on the Movies Anywhere mobile app:

  1. Sign in to your Movies Anywhere account
  2. Select “Manage Retailers” under Account Settings
  3. Select “Disconnect” Xfinity

You can only connect one Xfinity account to Movies Anywhere at a time. If you have more than one Xfinity account, you can switch Xfinity accounts connected to Movies Anywhere once every 180 days.

After you’ve disconnected your Xfinity account from Movies Anywhere, only the titles that you’ve purchased through Xfinity will remain in your Saved → My Purchases area, subject to Xfinity’s policies and terms of use.

While your Xfinity account remains disconnected from Movies Anywhere, any Movies Anywhere eligible movies you purchase through other Movies Anywhere participating retailers will no longer be added to your Xfinity account.
