Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can play?

Everyone in the room can join! You can even play Movie Night by yourself for a fun way to discover new content in the OnDemand library. If more than ten people play, it might get hard to find a movie to match everyone's taste, but it can still be fun to find out what you all have in common

What if one player cannot continue?

Sometimes players get disconnected and appear to be stuck. Try refreshing the browser on their device. If that doesn't work, and you'd like to advance the game without them, press the Right Arrow button on your TV Remote. Unfortunately, that player will not be able to rejoin at a later step.

How are movies selected?

Movie Night uses information in our database to find movies that have moods or themes in common. We also look at movie ratings, reviews, and popularity to guess which movies will please the audience. Its not rocket-science, but it is fun. Since movies come from the XFINITY OnDemand library, they may be free, free with subscription, or paid (typically $2.99 to $5.99).
