Cord-cutting is sure the ongoing fad. But while TV watchers in the U.S. spend about 26% of their TV time on streaming services, the larger - 64% chunk - still goes to traditional broadcast and cable networks via a pay-tv service. One of the biggest reasons why pay-tv is still going strong is access to the variety of sports networks, and the ability to tune in to live games via a single service instead of having to hold multiple OTT subscriptions.   

When it comes to Xfinity however, that is not the only advantage. You get a variety of sports networks included in your primary lineup, and there are exciting add-on sports networks to customize and personalize it as you want. Not to forget the Xfinity Sports Zone feature that you can enjoy when you subscribe to Xfinity TV with X1!  

So, if you have been thinking about switching to Xfinity TV as a sports fan, read on and learn about what the service has in store for you.
