X1 transforms traditional TV into an Entertainment Operating System - complete with apps, personalization and social media tools, second-screen integration and more
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast, a global media and technology company, today announced the launch of its cloud-based interactive television experience, the X1 Platform from Xfinity, in six New Mexico service areas: Albuquerque, Farmington, Las Cruces, Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Silver City.
Unlike any other video service available today, X1 is a cloud-based platform that transforms TV into an interactive and integrated experience. It integrates the largest collection of video with social media features, interactive apps, web content and more in one easy-to-navigate, sleek viewing experience. The launch of X1 is part of Comcast's ongoing and evolving effort to take advantage of its powerful network and IP technology to constantly bring new innovations to market.
"The X1 Platform is a huge leap forward for us and transforms traditional television viewing into an entirely new entertainment experience," said Chris Dunkeson, New Mexico vice president and general manager for Comcast. "X1 uses cloud-based technology to make the TV smarter, richer and more personalized, and allows us to deliver new features to our customers faster than ever."
New X1 features and capabilities available to customers in New Mexico today include:
In addition, the X1 Remote App lets customers use motions, gestures, and voice commands to control their TVs with their Apple handheld devices. For example, customers can use voice commands to navigate the guide and search for content; swipe their iPhones to page through the interactive TV guide and program personalized short-cuts and favorites ("Quick Links"); and shake their device to pause Xfinity On Demand content.
X1 will initially be available to new Xfinity Triple Play customers and will become available to additional customer segments in the future. The X1 Platform is currently available in more than a dozen markets, and Comcast plans to launch the service in all remaining markets by the end of the year.
