More Sports on More Screens with XFINITY Sports
We are definitely a sports family. I played sports from the age of 3 through college and all three of my children plays various sports throughout the year as well. We love to see live sports and we all love to watch games together on television.
In fact, last month we traveled to stay with some friends to watch the big game. They had a house full of guests and we had an amazing weekend. These die-hard loyal fans relied 100% on Xfinity Sports to make our weekend as enjoyable as we hoped.
Two televisions stayed on along with the app throughout Friday-Sunday showing various games and other activities (like interviews) throughout the weekend. We loved the we could check scores on the XFINITY Sports app while we were watching live sports. Did you know that Google Fiber doesn’t offer a comparable place to see all scores and player stats, while watching another game live?
The XFINITY Sports app is a really cool feature available through the X1 system. This app makes watching sports a complete experience because you get easy and fast access to:
- live games on TV
- live scores of all games currently in progress
- coverage of games you aren’t watching
- upcoming game schedules.
Love Fantasy Football?
If you or anyone in your home loves Fantasy Football, you are in luck because this app is fabulous. Simply choose the Football Extras from the Sports app and check out what XFINITY has created as the ultimate football companion. You will find:
- more data
- real-time stats and visualizations
- pre-game player and team comparisons
- injury reports
- fantasy stats
- and more.
Google Fiber doesn't offer you the ability to set up a schedule.
Watch whatever you want but sports lovers can keep the X1 Sports app up on the screen regardless of what’s on.
XFINITY has even designed a really fun section of X1 designed specifically with kinds in mind called Kids Zone. Kids will find all of their faves on TV along with movies, shows, recording from DVR , On Demand and more! Kids get to be independent and make good choices while you still maintain control over certain features like channel up/down and the ability to purchase or rent programming so they don’t stumble across inappropriate programming. The fun interface, designed with kids in mind, is something Google Fiber doesn’t offer.
