It’s a pretty well-known fact around my house that when the Olympics come around every two years, I am all in! I love every second of the games. I love the thrill of the victory, seeing which favorite will live up to the glory and which underdog will steal the glory. I actually have a countdown on my phone as to how many days until the Rio 2016 Summer Games begin. Did you know you can Elevate Your Olympic Viewing Experience with Xfinity X1?
I was recently invited to attend a Philadelphia Phillies game to hear about the amazing Olympic features of Xfinity X1. This summer in Rio, NBCUniversal will have more coverage than ever. Eleven networks. 6,000 hours. 306 events. Everything live-streamed. And nobody brings the stories of these remarkable athletes to life like NBCUniversal.
Xfinity X1 is your front row seat to the 2016 Rio Olympics. It is the ultimate Olympics destination, uniting all of NBCUniversal’s award-winning Olympics coverage – including 1,000 hours of live programming airing across 9 of NBCUniversal’s broadcast and cable networks, 650 hours of on demand programming and 4,500 hours of NBC Sports app streaming content – all in one place. Customers can access Front Row to Rio from the main menu (accessed by pressing the Xfinity key) or Xfinity On Demand sections of the guide, under “TV” and “Sports.” Hello! That’s a whole lotta Olympics coverage – all in one convenient place! This gets me so excited.
In addition, the X1 Sports App is a first-of-its-kind Olympics companion TV experience that will enable users to search and explore the latest medal counts, live results and scores, and real-time stats for all events. Seamlessly integrated into the X1 experience, it will allow viewers to browse all live and online streamed programming schedules, tune to any event, or watch the latest highlights of their performances on demand.
I love that NBCUniversal is bringing the power and pageantry of the games to us. This is Olympic coverage like we have never experienced before. It’s a win for the Olympic lover like myself because we can watch what sport we want when we want. That sounds like a win to me! Are you all in too? Be sure to check out Xfinity X1 before the games begin. Let me know who your favorites are. Go Team U.S.A!
