Go way beyond just what you’ll see of the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea on TV with Xfinity X1.
If you remember the 2016 Summer Games, then you know that NBC Universal really outdid themselves with their coverage of the event. Fans of practically any sport were able to watch their favorites compete thanks to over 6.500 hours of television coverage or the fact that each and every minute of the Games were streamed live online.
And if you had X1 from Xfinity, you could curate channels, find out how a particular athlete did on a given day or watch whatever you may have missed anytime you wanted.
Pretty cool, no?
Well, for the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, NBC Universal and Xfinity are taking the whole concept of “cool” to a whole other level.
For the Winter Games, Xfinity plans to put over 2,400 hours of coverage at your fingertips thanks to X1. From your X1 remote you’ll be able to access Olympics Home, which is your one-stop shop for all things Winter Games. Catch up on what you missed, replay the days events or see how your favorite athlete did in competition.
But let’s say you only enjoy Olympic curling. Why I don’t know but hey, to each their own. Anyway, X1 will have over 50 channels that will curate the Games into that day’s events or the biggest, most exciting finishes or even particular sports.
Yes. Thanks to Xfinity and X1 it will be like you have your very own version of Wide World of Sports all about curling.
What a world we live in.
But what if that’s just not enough curling for you? You need more curling and you don’t care who knows. Pick up your X1 voice remote, hit the button and say “curling” and viola! You will see everything Xfinity has to offer about curling at the Winter Games waiting for you.
