The explosion of streaming, new technologies, and artificial intelligence are fundamentally transforming people’s lives. To kickoff 2024, Comcast hosted its Converge event in Philadelphia where it showcased its latest tech developments and network advancements, designed to seamlessly integrate media and technology. The mission is simple: ensure customers can easily connect to what they need and love, on any device, anywhere, now and in the future.
