Over the weekend Vin and I attended a fantastic concert at Hartford’s Xfinity Theatre hosted by you guessed it Xfinity. Did you catch some of the action on snapchat? We even met with the opening act country group Dan+Shay for a private demo. I must say they were fantastic and although I’m not a country music fan by any means, I think I may have just been converted! Later in the evening we finally watched the featured guest star Darius Rucker (formerly of Hootie & The Blowfish). I wasn’t familiar with his newer country music since he ventured on his own but he did play some of the older tunes I remember listening to. Regardless, he was a badass!
While at the venue we were also introduced to Xfinity’s new X1 platform with some of the latest features for live streaming the upcoming #Rio2016 Olympics. The best way to experience Rio is on X1. For the first time, Comcast has 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.[jwplayer mediaid=”13798″]
- The company’s award-winning X1 platform will blend more than 6,000 hours of live, on demand and online streaming easy to navigate content.
- This includes over 1,000 hours of live coverage airing across 9 of NBCUniversal’s broadcast and cable networks, 650 hours of on demand programming and 4,500 hours of NBC Sports Live Extra online streaming content – all in one place.
