The cord-cutting concept has become more popular over the past couple of years as people continue to become convinced there is better value and greater freedom in subscribing to online streaming platforms. That said, cable TV brings out the real essence of television watching.
There has always been fierce competition within the cable TV industry, and with cord-cutting becoming more common, this competition has become more multifaceted. Because of all the pressure on cable TV providers, each endeavor to introduce newer ways of watching cable TV, just so that you have all the flexibility and convenience that you get to enjoy with subscription streaming services.
Xfinity from Comcast is one of the leading cable TV providers in the U.S. In fact, Xfinity is the largest cable provider in the country. While being a cable TV provider, Xfinity is primarily an internet service provider, with its internet services spread in 39 states, accessible to 112.3 million people.
In recent years Xfinity has started to upgrade its digital cable TV offerings towards a smart TV platform based on the X1 operating system?essentially an “entertainment operating system” which takes away the complexity of dealing with various entertainment options available to you. Instead, it offers straightforward access to all the content you love to watch via a single interface?live TV, On Demand, web video, and more than 100 free & subscription-based streaming services encompassing games, video, and music?all that is there at the beck and call of the award-winning Xfinity Voice Remote.
Moreover, you get to enjoy the FREE Xfinity Stream App with your Xfinity TV package, allowing you to stream your favorites on the go! Above all, Xfinity has an impressive channel lineup on offer when you bundle Xfinity Internet and TV.
As you spend more time with your new Xfinity subscription, you are sure to discover its full value, but for now, let us get to STARZ®.
