Xfinity Cable TV, Internet, and Phone Bundles
While there are no senior-specific discounts, Xfinity offers multiple bundles and promotional offers throughout the year. Bundling (combining more than one service, such as TV, internet, and phone) is one of the best ways to get the most for your money. Xfinity offers several bundle deals just for TV and internet, for the same price as TV-only, in some cases.
The company also offers internet and mobile deals for people who want a new phone carrier. You can choose to build your own bundle or select one of Xfinity’s advertised options. These bundles are customizable and vary greatly by location and the packages available in your area. Below are our top picks for older adults.
Best overall streaming deal for seniors
If you want to try “cutting the cord,” Xfinity offers Flex, a voice-controlled 4K streaming box with access to over 10,000 free movies and TV shows, along with popular streaming apps like Netflix and Hulu. You can also rent and buy your favorite movies and shows.
Xfinity Flex combines internet and TV through a “streaming dashboard” box with DVR. While it may have more perks than you need, the X1’s voice remote and ease of use are especially beneficial for customers over 65. You can control almost anything on your TV with the Voice Remote. All your shows, movies, music, podcasts, and apps are available across all of your screens.
400 Mbps Internet + Over 125 Channels
This bundle offers excellent value at $85 per month with a one-year term contract. It includes 400 Mbps internet speeds, which is more than enough for most older users. You can play games, stream movies, and make video calls all at the same time on different devices. The bundle also comes with the same number of channels as the Popular TV package, which costs $60 per month on its own. That means you’re only paying $25 extra for fast internet speeds.
Keep in mind that prices will increase after the first year. The package may also come with broadcast TV or regional sports fees, and taxes are not included in the price. Prices may also vary by location.
