XFINITY TV is serving up a binge-watcher’s dream: one week of free VOD and streaming access to more than 3,900 hours of award-winning and popular TV series from March 25-31.

And it’s top-tier TV. In addition to making over 100 television shows available for free, XFINITY will also offer up nearly the entire On Demand libraries for HBO, Showtime and Starz. Yep, that means during Watchathon, even non-subscribers can get their eyes on premium-channel offerings. Now you can finally cross “The Wire” off your TV Bucket List! Revisit dear old friends like the ladies of “Sex and the City.” Or get in on the addictive “Homeland!”

What’s all this fuss about “Downton Abbey“? What’s so great about zombies (“The Walking Dead“)? Why are over 8 million people watching “Duck Dynasty“? Is “The Sopranos” really one of the best shows ever? Why is “Dexter” everybody’s favorite serial killer? How come everyone’s mad about “Mad Men“? Should we join the “Revolution“? Why does “Game of Thrones” rule?
