How you can personalize your family’s Olympic viewing experience with Comcast NBCUniversal!
posted by: Amber Johnson
You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who loves the Olympics more than I do! I’ve lived in two Olympic cities (Calgary and Salt Lake City) and in 2010, I was Microsoft’s accredited blogger at the Vancouver Games. And after a looong COVID season (and the postponement of the Olympics), I’m thrilled that The Games Must Go On.
Back in the Olden Days, you had limited options for watching the Olympics but Comcast (an official Team USA partner Olympic sponsor) will bring the Tokyo Olympics to all their entertainment customers through X1, Flex and Stream, offering them more choice, more streaming, and more ways to ensure you never miss a must-see Olympic moment.
Where to Watch the Games
X1 will once again offer Xfinity TV customers the premiere Olympics viewing experience. For these Games, they are delivering an unparalleled content offering to customers with more personalization and more ways to discover the Games than ever before which includes:
- All 7000+ hours of NBC’s live, on demand and streaming coverage will be available to Xfinity TV customers via X1 and the Stream app.
- X1 will also offer customers access to all of NBC’s live and on demand 4K HDR coverage, including every night of NBC’s primetime show, the Opening and Closing ceremonies and popular sports like gymnastics, track & field, swimming, diving, beach volleyball, golf, and tennis.
Personalize The Games To You and Your Family
Involve your family in the fun by personalizing your Olympics destination on X1 to make it easier than ever before to find the sports you want to watch. You’ll see the personalization first within the “On Now” row and also a custom highlights row with all the can’t miss moments from your chosen sports.
Your favorites will carry over to the Stream app on iOS and Android devices, so you’’ll see the same personalized experience you’ve set up on your TV when accessing the Games on the go.
For the first time you’ll also find a personalized playlist based on the favorite sports you set. The playlist will be updated daily so you can stay up to date on the latest action of your favorite sports. You can either lean back and watch all videos included in a playlist or, by pressing the down arrow on your remotes, browse the entire playlist and select the highlights and replays most interesting to you.
You will also be able to set notifications for your favorite sports and get live tune-in alerts for major moments and quick links to trending highlights on the device of your choice.
First-of-its kind Olympic Viewing For Streamers
If you’re a Flex customer, the platform will feature a robust X1-like Olympics destination easily accessible via the home screen and by saying “Olympics” into the Xfinity Voice Remote. Either interaction brings all the Olympics-related programming available to stream on the platform into one integrated experience.
Anchoring the destination will be all of Peacock’s free live and on-demand programming, including six themed channels; four live-studio shows; hundreds of short-form highlights and trending news clips; and several original docuseries and documentaries.
Are You a Bilingual Household?
X1 and Stream will bring NBCUniversal’s 300 hours of Spanish-language coverage to customers at home or on the go, and special in-language voice commands, such as “Olimpiadas,” “natación” and “medallero,” will help customers navigate the Games in Spanish.
Get Inspired Together
From connecting people to the Internet; to supporting young, diverse storytellers; to opening doors for the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs; Comcast wants everyone to have what they need to build a better future for generations to come.
When kids think they can do anything, they’re right.
