Before explaining in detail how Infinity+ works , I want to answer one of the most frequently asked questions relating to Mediaset’s paid VOD service, i.e. how much does Infinity+ cost ?

Well, the Infinity+ monthly plan is the one for 7.99 euros/month , which includes the viewing of all the contents present in the service catalog (films, TV series, cartoons, documentaries, TV shows and football to watch the matches of the UEFA Champions League (specifically, you will have access to 121 matches, of which 17 are free on Mediaset Infinity and 104 on Infinity+ and you will also be able to see the other Tuesday matches and 7 of the 8 Wednesday matches of the group stage, including the semi-finals and final ) Regarding football, you should also know that you can also watch free content from Mediaset Infinity, therefore all the matches of the Italian Cup .

As regards films, however, only first-run films are an exception (those that have just arrived on the home video market, which are not included in the price) and must be rented separately, even if, on a weekly basis, some of them are included in the offer Infinity+ base for a few days, through the Infinity+ Premiere initiative .

As an alternative to the monthly plan, it is possible to subscribe to the six-monthly plan (39 euros/six months) or the annual plan (69 euros/year) . Other subscription plans available are those that also include the subscription to other Infinity+ Channels , such as the monthly Infinity+ and Midnight Factory plan , the cost of which is 9.99 euros/month .

Finally, it is worth underlining the availability of some offers for ADSL and mobile which include the viewing of Infinity+ for a few months or more at no cost. Read my post on Internet offers if you want to know more.

How to use Infinity+

The Infinity+ interface is extremely intuitive: at the top there is a convenient menu through which you can choose the type of content to view (e.g. Cinema , Series , Champions League or Film rental) and by clicking on each of the items in question , access all available sub-categories, such as Animation , Adventure , Comedy etc. for films or TV series. By using the search field located at the top right, however, you can type a specific keyword and search for the contents of your interest.

On smartphones and tablets, first press on the Infinity+ item to access the service section, then refer to the Cinema , TV Series , Champions League , Film rental menu items to see the available content.

In the center of the page, both on computers and on smartphones and tablets , you will find the list of the latest arrivals, the most viewed contents , the list of first-run films available on Infinity+ Premiere (the initiative that allows you to see first-run films free for a week); those you were watching (via the continue watching section , playback of content resumes from where you left off, regardless of the device used), plus some collections of films and TV series selected by Infinity+ based on various criteria.

After having identified the content you are interested in in order to view it, click first on its poster and then on the Play/Watch button on the page that opens (if it is a series or a TV program made up of several episodes, you must click on the Play button relating to the episode to watch).

The Infinity+ player can be moved anywhere and includes all the basic controls: full screen view , volume adjustment , play/pause and time scroll bar . Furthermore, it contains a speech bubble icon which, when clicked, allows you to select the audio tracks and subtitles available for the content being played. The controls are the same on computers, smartphones and tablets.

If you stop watching content, Infinity+ will remember where you left off and allow you to resume watching from there. To view the list of content you have “pending”, connect to the Infinity+ home page and consult the Continue Watching section .

Another very interesting function of the streaming service offered by Mediaset is the one relating to the favorites list , which, called Your list, allows you to create a list of contents to watch at a later time. To add content to your favourites, press the Your list button next to the poster of a film or TV series. Next, you’ll find the titles added to the list in the Your Lists section of Infinity+.

Rent movies

In addition to the many films included in the subscription, Infinity+ also offers a wide range of first-run titles for rental , which can be purchased at varying prices.

To rent content, connect to the Infinity+ main page from your PC or launch the official app of the service on one of the supported devices, then access the Films for rental section and browse all the available titles, which are divided into categories: the most rented , new releases , blockbusters and so on.

Manage profiles

Infinity+ profile

Infinity+ allows you to create different profiles for each account, so that each member of the family can freely watch and manage the content of their interest. Furthermore, the service learns about the user’s tastes and automatically suggests content that may be of interest to the user.

To create a new profile in your account, connect to the Infinity+ home page from your PC or launch the Mediaset Infinity app on your smartphone/tablet , press on its profile icon (top right) and select the Change profile item from the menu that appears.

Now, on the page that opens, select the Add profile item and fill out the form that is proposed to you with the name , the type ( adult or child ) and the avatar to assign to the profile. However, I remind you that by selecting the child type , every time this profile is selected, the interface will change, switching to a protected section in which only the contents dedicated to children are shown.

Finally, at the end of the operation, confirm the changes made by pressing the Save button located at the bottom.

Use Infinity+ on smartphones and tablets

Use Infinity on smartphones and tablets

Infinity+ can also be used via the Mediaset Infinity app which can be downloaded from the Play Store or alternative stores for Android and from the App Store for iOS/iPadOS . Its operation is very intuitive, also because it perfectly follows the Web version of the service.

To download the Mediaset Infinity app on your smartphone or tablet, open the device store ( Play Store if you use an Android terminal, App Store if you have an iPhone or iPad and search for “Mediaset Infinity” in this last. Then select the app icon from the search results and proceed to download the app by pressing the Install or Get button .

One recommendation I make is to keep the Mediaset Infinity app constantly updated : in this way you will be able to avoid viewing problems and be able to take advantage of all the most recent features of the service. If you don’t know how to update Mediaset Infinity, open your smartphone’s store (e.g. Play Store or an alternative store on Android or App Store on iOS/iPadOS), access the app download page and, if present, press the button Update . More info here .
