The latest offerings from Xfinity’s Day of Awesome and Xfinity Kids Week TODAY through 7/14!

This post is sponsored by Comcast.

Comcast Xfinity held a Day of Awesome recently at local Xfinity stores to showcase some of the latest offerings of their TV, Internet, Voice and Mobile services. I’d like to highlight a few things of interest to families. Also, don't miss the first ever Xfinity Kids Week starting today and going through Sunday, July 14. More details below:

APPS
Xfinity Stream is one of the apps that I use on my iPhone or iPad the most around my house as well as on my commute and family trips. Recently we went on a trip to Sesame Place and thanks to Xfinity Stream, I was able to download previously recorded episodes of the kids’ favorite shows to keep them entertained for the car ride!  You can watch more than 200 channels outside the home, download TV shows or On Demand programs so that you can stay entertained when you’re offline.

The xFi app allows Xfinity Internet customers to manage the home wireless network and router using a simple app on their mobile device.  This app and the xFi experience is another reason why you want to rent your wireless gateway from Xfinity,
                                       
Using the Xfinity My Account app, you can easily troubleshoot services, pay a bill, find an Xfinity Store near you, and you can even eliminate hold time by tapping a time that works for you if you need to speak with a Comcast representative! They really have thought a lot about saving time for their customers, which is a must for families when trying to juggle everything.

YOUR HOME NETWORK
We have high expectations when it comes to internet connectivity, especially when it comes to coverage, and Comcast helps this through their xFi Gateways and xFi Pods, giving you fast, reliable WiFi coverage throughout your home. The xFi Advanced Gateway can deliver 1G speeds over WiFi in the home. If you rent the gateway from Xfinity they will swap it out for newer devices whenever they increase their internet speeds. xFi Pods are a powerful mesh WiFi solution that extend reliable WiFi coverage to hard-to-reach areas. When traveling outside the home, as part of the Xfinity internet package you also have access to more than 19 million WiFi hotspots, so you can stay connected on the go at no additional cost.

X1
X1 offers a unique, integrated experience that provides you with access to You can access so many services with the voice remote: live TV, On Demand, Recorded video, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, NPR, Sling International, and iHeartRadio. They are going to be partnering with Amazon Music to offer that option as well on the X1 platform! One of my favorite things about the X1 remote is that I can have it turn on my TV, Surround Sound system and wake up my X1 box all by pressing the power button. Magical!

TV
If you have a 4K TV, Xfinity just added a bunch of new content – including the Women’s World Cup coverage as well as 4K content from X1-integrated apps like Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video. Xfinity offers the largest 4K library that aggregates 4K programming from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and more (as long as you have 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. You can have a 4K box shipped to you or arrange for a professional installation. There is no additional cost for 4K service from Xfinity.

KIDS WEEK 7/8-7/14
From Monday, July 8 to Sunday, July 14, Xfinity is hosting the first ever Kids Week offering dozens of movies and shows for kids for free all week long, at home and on the go! During Kids Week, Xfinity TV customers will have access to the full catalog of Xfinity On Demand programming from networks and premium services such as Disney Story Central, Kids Central, Kids Central en Espanol, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Nick en Espanol, PBS Kids, Primo TV and VME Kids.
