Xfinity Ultimate TV Package

The Most Entertainment

When you want everything Xfinity TV has to offer, Ultimate TV is a solid option. It's Xfinity's biggest TV plan and features over 185 channels for a no-contract price of $68.50/mo.

Compared to the Popular TV plan, Ultimate has 60 more channels for $18 more per month. That's good value and, especially for movie and sports fans, a pretty tempting upgrade. All that extra programming can be watched on Xfinity's new high-tech receiver, the X1 DVR. The X1 lets you combine your Xfinity and any streaming services you may have all in one place.

Cable

Compared to top plans from other providers (satellite, streaming, etc.), Xfinity's Ultimate TV stacks up quite well. It neatly covers all the major channel themes without much fluff or part-time channels.

With respect to new channels found in this package, you'll get favorites such as Cartoon Network, Cooking Channel, Discovery Family, Disney Jr, Hallmark Drama and more. For sports fans, new programming includes ACC Network, CBSSN, ESPNU, MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, PAC-12 Network and SEC Network. So, quite a big list and perfect for most college and pro fans.

Finally, regarding price, Xfinity tacks on a couple extra fees to this plan. They're standard with all Xfinity plans so be sure to factor that in before you decide.

PERFECT FOR: mid to large families with a variety of tastes.

TrueCost: Ultimate TV Plan

If you're like us, you don't like surprises with your bill. It's never fun signing up for a new service and finding a ton of fees never discussed on that first bill. That's the point of this section - transparency in pricing.

With Xfinity and the Ultimate TV plan, you have to pay 3 extra fees: Broadcast TV (local channels) Regional Sports fee (access to one of the 6 local NBC Sports channels) and a Residential Tax (depends on your region/state). All three come to total of around $45/mo. Yeah, not great. For the most part, Xfinity's pricing is classic marketing psychology. They advertise a lower flat plan price and tack on fees to offset the extra programming. We'd much rather they combined all the fees into one price and let customers decide.

When you do combine everything, the total cost for Ultimate TV runs around $114. Value-wise, we don't have a huge issue with that number, especially considering the big chunk of extra programming added to this plan. Hopefully, Xfinity gets rid of the somewhat-hidden fees in the future.

With regard to specials, you can save $10/mo for signing up to Autopay and paperless billing. Overall, here's the full cost breakdown:

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a contract required for Ultimate TV?

No, and that's one of the advantages of Xfinity TV. In contrast with old school cable or satellite TV, there's no long-term commitment and you can cancel anytime (with no termination fee).

Why is Ultimate TV so expensive?

It's certainly not cheap but if you compare it to other live TV plans, it's generally in the same cost/channel range. Overall, it's best suited for families or subscribers that want as many options as possible, in lieu of having to pay for separate pay-per-view or specialty sports programming.

Can I install and setup Ultimate TV by myself?

While it's not a complicated installation, you need an Xfinity receiver to get everything setup. So, even though Xfinity internet can be self-installed, an Xfinity technician will need to make sure everything is wired and working as it should (and properly connected to your internet).

Can I get an ACP discount with Ultimate TV?

Yes, but only with an internet bundle. The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) offers a $30/mo. discount for lower income households. It only applies for connectivity-type services (internet and mobile phone), not for TV alone. So, if you bundle Ultimate with any Xfinity internet plan, you can apply for an ACP discount.
