Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, more people stay at home under the lockdown measure. And with more activities indoor, streaming music consumption sees a surging trend.

As a large television services provider, Comcast rolled out its Xfinity X1 in 2012 which now has integrated with major online streaming providers such as Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, YouTube, Amazon Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and NPR One. But, is Spotify available on Xfinity? Not until June 22, 2020, music streaming service Spotify arrived on X1 giving millions of customers a new way of listening to over 50 million songs and 450 thousand podcasts.

In this passage, we’ll introduce you how to play the newly arrived Spotify on Xfinity X1 and give you some noteworthy details about this latest feature.

Best Way to Stream Spotify on Xfinity X1 via ViWizard

Q1: Can I play Spotify on Xfinity X1 using free account?

A: Yes, you can. But it’s ad-supported, which means your listening experience will be interrupted from time to time.

Q2: Does Spotify use my monthly data on Xfinity?

A: Yes, Spotify music is streamed through the internet, so it does consume your monthly date.

Since Spotify on Xfinity TV requires premium account to play its songs without pause and ads, that really makes this feature less worthy for charging customers an extra 9.99$ per month. What’s worse, the Spotify app will count against your monthly data on Xfinity. If you’re streaming Spotify at high music quality, that will drain your data very soon.

Thanks to the ViWizard Spotify Music Converter, you'll be able to download all songs from Spotify. After that, you can import the downloaded audio files in your Xfinity X1 TV and play them without Spotify premium account. And that will not use your Xfinity monthly data.
