Xfinity offers a bilingual World Cup experience

With the World Cup taking over the realm of sports this summer, Xfinity has “created an unparalleled viewing experience for today’s increasingly bicultural soccer fanbase.”
The Xfinity X1 platform offers screens, menus and voice commands in both English and Spanish, integrating all live coverage from FOX and Telemundo. Xfinity TV viewers can check out features such as full-game replays, highlights, and real-time analytics, as well as on-screen player and team stats.
And now, for the first time, customers can receive notifications about when their favorite team is about to play via their TV or mobile phone.
