Fall means football and football means live streaming.
With more than 20 sports networks available to live stream on Xfinity TV Go, we’re streaming more than 50 games each weekend so our customers can keep up with every touchdown, every field goal, every turnover, every season-defining win and every shocking upset while on-the-go.
Sports has always been a major driver of live streaming on our platform. In fact, live viewing increased by 59 percent over the last year. We saw huge live engagement numbers from the NBA playoffs – during which we served nearly 5 million streams, up 73 percent from last year, and the 2015 NHL playoffs, up 138 percent from a year ago. That’s on top of the great response we saw from users during the 2014 Sochi Olympics and FIFA World Cup.
As for college football? For the 2014 season, college games accounted for 60 percent of sports streaming. The first installment of college football’s New Year’s Six bowl games drew more than half a million live streams alone.
We want to provide the best entertainment experience possible for our sports fans whether watching on a laptop via Xfinity TV Go on the Web or the Xfinity TV Go mobile app on iOS, Android and Kindle devices. With our ultimate suite of live college football coverage, this fall, our customers can get the most live college football action anytime, anywhere.
