TAKE YOUR OLYMPICS VIEWING TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH XFINITY

0 Permalink

Do you guys watch the Olympics? We’re a little obsessed at this house.  You know what I love the  most? Hubby would probably roll his eyes because I’m not about to write “the competition” – I love the back stories, and watching the parents of the Olympic athletes get emotional when their kids perform.  I know, I know, I know.  But just think about the time and effort we put into driving our kids to soccer, or ballet, or baseball and then times that by 10,000 for these Olympian parents!  I get choked up just looking at pictures like this one:
140204130517-25-parents-of-olympians-horizontal-large-galleryI’m excited to introduce our kids to the Olympics this year since they are now old enough to understand and appreciate them.   Plus, this summer Olympics location holds a special place in my heart – my own parents used to be ex-pats in Brasil and we loved going down and visiting.  The country is beautiful, the people are affectionate and compassionate, and the food is amazing.

What are your favorite sports to watch? Mine are synchronized swimming, soccer, and gymnastics; which are the complete opposite of my ex-rugger husband’s love for the game of rugby.  Did you know the last time rugby was played in the Olympics was 1924!? (I do, because he’s told me everyday this week.)  Needless to say he is excited for it’s return.  We can both agree on Track & Field at least.  And lucky enough for us we can use the Comcast Xfinity X1 platform to cover it all.   I’ve been an #XfinityMom for awhile now but recently learned all about their new Olympic-viewing features, check them out!

Favorites: You can tag your favorite athletes (Bolt!) teams (USA!) and nations (Brasil!) by providing a “bookmark” for quick and easy access to the content you care about most. Plus, you should use this feature to easily find the most popular shows you (or your kids) want to watch.

Front Row To Rio: This is the ultimate Olympics destination – a truly binge-worthy viewing experience with over 6,000 hours of Olympics programming to choose from all in one place. If you want the abs show, (aka Men’s Swimming) favorite it NOW!  Plus, you can even watch the Olympics Trials On Demand to help get ready for the Olympics.

Voice Remote: {I love my voice remote.} Now you can get to Rio even faster with your X1 Voice Remote.  For the first time ever, you can quickly and easily search for your favorite Olympic sports, countries and athletes with just the sound of your voice.

NBC Sports App: For the first time, all of the online streaming content from the NBC Sports app will be on X1 for you to easily search, discover and choose from up to 40 different matches each day. Here’s a real example: if you’re interested in watching the U.S. gymnastics team you could select from the live broadcast of the floor routines on NBC, the online live stream of the balance beam, or the online live stream of the uneven bars.

X1 Sports App for the Olympics: This 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. Since it’s built into X1, it will allow you to browse all live and online streamed programming schedules, tune to any event, or watch the latest highlights of their performances on demand. Just press the “C” button on your X1 remote to use the sports app.

If you sign up for Xfinity’s X1 you’ll automatically get the Road to Rio Experience. If you’re an existing Xfinity customer you can upgrade to X1 at no extra cost. The Rio Games will offer the most comprehensive coverage of any event in sports history with unprecedented programming for the Games of the XXXI Olympiad from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, starting Friday August 5th (hey, that’s today!)

Don’t miss a moment of the Olympics action with Xfinity X1 Road To Rio!
