Comcast and NBC Universal Give a Front Row Seat to Rio
By now you realize that it's easier than ever to experience wall-to-wall Olympics coverage from Rio. Thanks to Comcast/Xfinity and NBC Universal.
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.
This is in fact, storytelling with the best use of technology and your voice.
The best way to experience Rio is their X1 platform. For the first time, they have built a destination that will combine live television, online streaming and on demand content, athlete profiles, and up-to-the-minute stats – in one integrated NBC Olympics dashboard.
And it’s all searchable, with your voice and the platform's X1 voice remote, you can say "Watch Olympics primetime," "Find Michael Phelps," or "How is the USA doing in the medal count," and X1 will take you right there. It’s a glimpse into the future of television – with unprecedented choice, personalization, and discovery.
For most of the world, the Olympics are 17 days of excitement. But for Comcast NBCUniversal, the Games represent years of preparation, passion, and commitment from thousands of people who work around the clock to bring us every event, every medal, and every moment. The Olympic viewing experience keeps getting more high tech, but it keeps getting easier thanks to the Comcast and NBC Universal.
