Comcast has the best Rio Olympics viewing
For Rio, Comcast has created the ultimate Olympics destination on X1, offering customers the best place to easily search, discover and access more than 6,000 hours of NBCUniversal’s live, on demand and online streaming Olympic programming available throughout the Games.
The Road to Rio homepage is accessible through the main menu that X1 customers already use. Comcast has enhanced the main menu (accessed by pressing the Xfinity key on your remote) to offer easy, instant access to real-time Olympic coverage as well as Front Row to Rio and customized content (such as your latest DVR recordings). Customers will also have the ability to personalize their Olympics experience by using the “favorite” feature on X1 to easily follow the athletes, teams and nations they care about most and navigate the entire Olympics experience with the sound of their voice using the X1 voice remote (in English or Spanish).
With the integrated X1 Sports app, customers can search and explore the latest medal counts, live results, and real-time stats for events, as well as browse all live and streaming programming schedules, select the specific event live stream they would like to view, and watch the latest highlights of their favorite events and athletes on demand.
Plus, X1 customers can also access GoldZone right on the TV or on their mobile device to watch any Olympics match that will result in medals for the winners.
Other new features debuting this year include real-time notifications around must-see moments, the ability to select from broadcast or specific online streaming coverage of individual events, video description of the primetime broadcasts for blind and visually impaired viewers and catch up on the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, or any edition of the full NBC primetime show, available the next day on Xfinity On Demand. Xfinity customers will also be able to watch the Opening Ceremonies and select events daily in 4K HDR through the Xfinity in UHD app on Samsung and LG Smart TVs.
