Through X1, we’ve changed the game in how people experience sports. And on June 2, our second annual Xfinity Summer of Soccer kicks off and will feature the two best international soccer tournaments of 2016 – Copa America Centenario and UEFA EURO 2016.
X1 customers will have the best seat in the house and we’ve added a few new, exciting features for fans to enjoy:
X1 Sports App: By putting data, graphics and charts right on the same TV screen as the game, our X1 Sports App adds more personalization, interactivity and fun to the viewing experience. We’ve updated it for soccer and it will include real-time stats on players and teams across both tournaments, as well as information on upcoming matches, recaps, and tournament standings.
Xfinity On Demand Soccer Hub: we’ve built out a specially curated section of XOD – available in either Spanish or English – for viewers, including quick access to match replays and other news, commentary and special clips relevant to the day’s action.
Instant On Demand: Spanish-speaking customers will have a unique opportunity to access all 32 Copa America matches shortly after the live broadcast begins (and throughout the rest of the tournament) via X1.
Voice Remote: Our X1 voice remote gives viewers the power to search, find and navigate all of the summer’s soccer programming with the sound of their voice. Customers can say commands in English or Spanish like "Soccer," or "Copa America" and it will re-direct them to all the content available for that search term.
Watch Live. Anywhere You Are: Fans can live stream all Copa America Centenario matches in Spanish on UDN via the Xfinity TV App and website, as well as every UEFA EURO 2016 game in English and Spanish on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, respectively.
All summer long, our Xfinity Latino Entertainment Channel (XLEC) will offer special Summer of Soccer programming and up-to-the-minute updates, while the Xfinity Latino microsite (www.xfinity.com/latino) will feature daily blogs and a special guide to Comcast’s soccer offerings in addition to links to all matches (In English and Spanish).
Join me in kicking off a Summer of Soccer with a viewing experience only Xfinity X1 can provide.
