Comcast today announced Xfinity X1 is the exclusive home of live 4K coverage in both English and Spanish for the FIFA Women’s World Cup from FOX and Telemundo, enabling customers to enjoy every moment in pristine 4K ultra high-definition.
In addition, Xfinity TV customers will have access to a robust soccer destination that aggregates all of the live, on demand and streaming events in one place, along with real-time scores, standings, highlights, and more.
“The Women’s World Cup will be one of the biggest sporting events of 2019, so we made Xfinity the best place to watch it by providing our customers with every minute of every match, live in 4K UHD, in both English and Spanish,” said Vito Forlenza, Executive Director, Product Management for Comcast Cable. “And once again, we’re excited to bring it all together in a comprehensive, bilingual viewing experience that makes following all the action of the tournament easier than ever, whether at home or on the go.”
The Xfinity X1 soccer experience for the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ includes:
Xfinity customers can catch the action anytime, anywhere with the Xfinity Stream app and portal. With Xfinity Stream, customers can stream all the action on computers and laptops, anywhere in the country, including live matches from FOX (in select markets), FS1, FS2, Telemundo (in select markets) and Universo, full-event replays and highlights on demand, pre-game predictions and post-game analysis.
The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup™ takes place in France from June 7 to July 7, involving 24 women’s national teams playing a total of 52 matches in nine cities. Two networks have exclusive broadcasting rights in the U.S. – with FOX/FS1/FS2 serving as the exclusive English-language broadcaster and Telemundo/Universo serving as the exclusive Spanish-language broadcaster.
Of course the Women’s World Cup isn’t the only time Xfinity has offered 4K. After all, Xfinity offers customers the largest 4K library that aggregates 4K programming from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and more (as long as the viewer as a 4K TV and a 4K box from Xfinity). In years past, Xfinity has made signature events available in 4K on demand including the Olympics and World Cup. Interested customers can have a 4K box shipped to them or they can arrange for a professional installation.
