Comcast’s free, ad-supported streaming service Xumo Play has added the NFL Channel ahead of the NFL Draft this week.

“The NFL Channel is a great addition to the growing collection of quality sports channels and programming now available on Xumo Play,” Stefan Van Engen, the vice president of content programming and partnerships at Xumo, said in a statement. ““Football is America’s number one sport, and our viewers will be delighted by all the great programming available on the NFL Channel, starting with three days of special NFL draft coverage to kick off the season.”

NFL Channel is the National Football League’s free, ad-supported streaming channel and is separate from NFL Network and NFL RedZone. The channel offers same-day replays of some NFL games during the regular season, as well as access to documentaries and series from NFL Films and other NFL-related programming.

This week, NFL Channel will offer some coverage of the NFL Draft, which begins on April 27 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time with “NFL Draft Center.” The program continues airing on April 28 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time and April 29 at 12 p.m. Eastern Time.

NFL Draft Center coincides with the airing of the 2023 NFL Draft, which takes place at the same time and will be televised on NFL Network, ABC and ESPN. On the final day of the NFL Draft, the streaming NFL Channel will offer the only live coverage of the final picks.
