Xfinity X1 continues to be a platform that brings together the best in technology and content, and now we’re leveraging some new X1 features to deliver our most immersive viewing experience ever for football’s biggest night.
Starting today, we’re launching a new collection of voice commands leading up to the NFL’s big day. For example, saying “The Big Game” into the X1 voice remote will pull up a comprehensive on demand destination featuring:
- The latest postseason news and analysis
- Team comparisons for the Eagles and Patriots
- Playoff highlights including the AFC and NFC Championship games
- Game replays from year’s past on demand
- And a compilation of YouTube playlists such as iconic halftime performances or the top commercials
Customers eagerly anticipating the halftime show can also choose from video playlists featuring music by this year’s performer Justin Timberlake, Pink who will sing the national anthem and previous halftime performers Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Coldplay and others.
X1 customers can also say things like “Tom Brady vs. Nick Foles,” “Eagles vs. Patriots” or “NFL touchdown leaders” into the remote to launch our new X1 sports knowledge cards that provide quick and real-time access to stats, standings and comparisons spanning the league, divisions, teams and players.
During the game on February 4th on NBC, customers can pull up the X1 Sports app on the right side of their screen to track the action live with real-time game stats. They will also be able to re-watch all of the 2018 commercials immediately after they air on X1.
Customers who want to tune into the game on secondary screens, or are stuck on Sunday away from their TVs, can use the Xfinity Stream app and web portal to watch the game. The Xfinity Stream app is available to all Xfinity TV customers at no additional cost on devices in and out of the home.
At home, customers can stream their entire channel line-up in any room, on any device… including live sporting events. Outside of the home Xfinity Stream gives customers access to more than 200 live channels over the Internet including sports networks such as ESPN, Fox Sports and NBC Sports. This means football fans can stream the game on the go with access to 18 million Xfinity WiFi hotspots nationwide!
