Comcast brings Jackbox's Party Packs to X1 set-top boxes

Two gaming packages are currently available for purchase.

Comcast is rolling out some new gaming options for its X1 set-top box users. Multichannel News reports that Jackbox Games has begun to show up on X1 this month with two gaming packages being offered. Jackbox Party Packs 3 and 4 are available for $25 each and include games like Quiplash, Trivia Murder Party, Fibbage and Monster Seeking Monster.

To purchase the multiplayer game packages, look for the Jackbox Games app on your X1 or say "Jackbox Games" into your Voice Remote. Once you buy the package, instructions will pop up telling you how to access it.

Though new to X1, Jackbox's games have been available on a number of other platforms including PS4, Xbox One, Steam, Nintendo Switch, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, PCs and others. Gaming packages will show up on customers' Comcast cable bills and users should note that playing the games on X1 will count towards their monthly internet data usage and Jackbox Games purchased on other platforms cannot be played on X1 boxes.
