Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with Xfinity

Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month X1

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and Xfinity has multiple ways for our customers to celebrate and honor Asian American and Pacific Islander culture all month (and all year!) long. Learn more about all the great ways to celebrate with Xfinity and don’t miss some of the great content features and exciting events going on.

Movies, music, events, and more!

It’s worth noting that during the month of May, over 2,500 hours of content will be available to Xfinity customers, including content from Music Choice, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Tubi, YouTube, iHeartRadio (music and podcasts), Pandora, Stingray, and more. That’s a lot of Asian American and Pacific Islander content to choose from, so where should you begin? Well, we have a few ideas.

During Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Xfinity customers will have the opportunity to experience uniquely crafted X1 collections, including anime, K-Dramas, trivia, Bollywood films, our “Featured Editor’s Film Picks”, LGBTQ Stories, and more! There’s even a dedicated collection highlighting “Game Changers,” influential Asian Americans across entertainment.

If music is more your thing, you should head to the World Music Experience and check out all of the content from Music Choice, Stingray, TVK-Pop, iHeartRadio, and Pandora, including music videos and interviews with Steve Aoki, Kris Wu, NCT 127, Jackson Wang, and K-Pop legends BLACKPINK (who may or may not have “broken the Internet” recently with the release of their hotly anticipated music video, “Kill This Love”).

All of the content mentioned above (plus four movies from Well Go USA network, select content available in multiple Asian languages and dialects, and even more) will be available to customers all month long, with Xfinity supporting Asian American and Pacific Islander culture and heritage throughout the entire year during celebrations such as Lunar New Year, Diwali, and so on.
