Last year the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory was the most-watched broadcast in US history. As the excitement builds for a Denver-Carolina match-up, Xfinity has created a unique and unparalleled experience, whether you’re watching on the TV or your favorite device.
For those who plan to watch on the big screen, Xfinity X1 will give football lovers the chance to engage with the game, players and teams like never before. We kicked off football season by dramatically re-engineering the X1 Sports app and launching Football Extras, giving football lovers the ultimate game companion. And fans are loving it, with 1.6 million Comcast homes using the Sports app at least once a week and over half of those using it multiple times each week to view real-time stats and visualizations. Before the first pass is thrown, Football Extras provides pre-game player and team comparisons, injury reports, and win/loss probabilities. During the game, stats will update constantly, keeping you up to speed, and afterward, Extras will even serve up a full post-game analysis including a drive chart summary.
People also love to watch football on their devices. This season, streaming of Monday Night Football on our Xfinity TV Go website was up 94 percent from the prior year, and mobile and online streaming of the College Football National Championship game went up 107 percent. With the Xfinity TV app, users can watch the Super Bowl on their devices from any room in the house – so you don’t miss a pass, tackle or touchdown. Planning to be on-the-go during some or all of the game? You can take it with you and watch anywhere you have Wi-Fi service via the free CBS live stream found here.
Need your football fix before the first Super Bowl commercial runs? Customers can watch a full library of Super Bowl content on Xfinity On Demand – including America’s Game, 30-Minute Super Bowl Recaps and The All-Star Countdown from CBS. Plus – you can watch full seasons of football-centric shows Football Town and Undrafted.
And last, but not least, for those who are only in it for the commercials, we’ll also be featuring two compilation specials on the greatest Super Bowl Commercials on Xfinity on Demand.
We’re always looking to up the ante to give sports fanatics the best possible experience for enjoying the big game wherever and however they want to watch it. Last year's game was the most-tweeted about football game of all-time, so make sure you're following me @XFINITYSports on Twitter for insight and fun on the biggest game of the year.
