Comcast Business today announced the company’s award-winning X1 video platform is now available to the millions of bars, restaurants, hotels, gyms and other businesses across Comcast’s footprint, including the company’s Twin Cities and Kansas City service areas.
X1 for Business includes easier search and navigation features, voice control functions and the X1 Sports App, a picture-in-picture, sports content platform with team and player profiles and stats, and real-time, game-specific data.
The launch of X1 for Business arrives just in time for the NCAA Basketball Tournament, one of the most profitable times of the year for sports bars and restaurants. According to the American Gaming Association, 70 million college basketball brackets are filled out annually, with last year’s first-round coverage averaging 8.6 million TV viewers.
Businesses can now offer their clients the same award-winning video experience our customers enjoy every day in their living rooms, said Kalyn Hove, vice president, Comcast Business, Twin Cities. X1 for Business is a game-changer whether it’s a bar or restaurant integrating sports stats into the dining experience, such as Comcast Business customer, Wooden Hill Brewing Company in Edina, or a small business providing entertainment options for guests in a lobby or waiting room.
Today, about two-thirds of Comcast’s residential customers have the industry-leading X1 platform in their homes. The company won an Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering, honoring teams that developed the Xfinity X1 Voice Remote and the innovative software platform that powers it.
