(NAPS)--If you're like most people, you simply cannot find the time to stay current with all the great TV that's available. Fortunately, there's Watchathon Week, an annual TV binge-athon that gives Xfinity TV customers free, unlimited access to the hottest shows from premium, cable and broadcast networks on Xfinity On Demand. With carte-blanche access to more than 250 series from April 18/24, there may be no better time to hunker down and catch up on all you've been missing. What's more, most of this great programming will also be available on the go via the Xfinity TV mobile app and website.

Of course, not everyone watches the same sort of shows. Depending on what you like to see, here are a few to view:

The One-Show Diehard:

You have no intention of moving from the couch until you finish your series from start to finish. Maybe you've heard co-workers gab about HBO's "Game of Thrones" or you've heard good things about STARZ's "Power" but never got around to watching. Or maybe you plan to use the week to watch every episode from every season of FOX's "The Simpsons." That's right--every single episode (nearly 600 of them!) from the series is yours for the bingeing during the week. Here's your chance to settle in, fire up your set-top box and let the episodes roll on Xfinity On Demand.

The One-Genre Fanatic:

Is any and all reality TV your thing? If so, use the week to catch up on current seasons of NBC's "The Voice," Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" and ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." If you prefer reality that broadens your horizons a bit more, you can check out every episode from every season of Discovery's hits "Bering Sea Gold" and "Gold Rush." Just looking for some good drama? During Watchathon Week, you can follow the infamous trial of the O.J. Simpson case on FX's "American Crime Story" or step into the historic worlds of HISTORY's "Vikings" and STARZ's "Outlander" and "Black Sails." If you simply prefer to watch some laugh-out-loud comedy, USA's "Playing House," NBC's "Superstore," FOX's "The Grinder" and TV Land's "Younger" can put a smile on your face and prove a great option for when you're in the need for something quick and light.

The Espaol Loyalist:

You know you've got options and choose to watch your entertainment in Espaol, because you can. Whether you're a fan of telenovelas or looking for a new top-rated show in English to obsess about in Spanish with SAP (secondary audio programming), Watchathon Week gives you free access to more of the programming you want in your language of preference. So what are you waiting for? Get in on the action today and catch up on all four seasons of Telemundo's super-series "El Seor de los Cielos." You'll also have access to programs available only during Watchathon Week like Nuestra Tele's "La Viuda de la Mafia" and Pasiones' "Xica da Silva," as well as all episodes of Telemundo's "Dueos del Paraso" and the current season of "La Viuda Negra" from UniMs.

The FOMO Inflicted:

In other words, do you have a "fear of missing out" and always want to be in the know with the latest pop culture developments? If so, Watchathon Week is your chance to catch up on current seasons of all the buzziest TV you've been missing, including FOX's "Empire" and AMC's "The Walking Dead."

You can also check out the entire first season of the hot new shows that had everyone talking, including USA's "Mr. Robot," FOX's "Scream Queens," ABC's "Quantico" and NBC's "Chicago Med."

Can't make a decision?

It's hard when there are so many options. Don't worry -- Xfinity's team of entertainment experts has you covered with a long list of recommendations on www.Xfinity.com//Watchathon to help you make the most of the week.
