Comcast Launches X1 Television Platform, Remote Control App


Comcast announced today it will launch its Xfinity TV on the X1 Platform, and a new X1 remote control app in the coming weeks.

The X1 platform, X1 (formerly Xcalibur), has been in customer trials in Augusta, GA., since 2011. The platform incorporates IP technology, using cloud servers on Comcast's network that allow Comcast to integrate interactive, customized apps and social media features with its traditional video services.

These new products will launch in Boston with several markets planned to follow this year, and will be available to new Xfinity Triple Play with HD/DVR service customers at no additional cost.

Showcased this week at NCTA?s The Cable Show 2012 in Boston, the X1 includes a main screen with a new user interface that integrates that enables one-click access to entertainment options. Through a new smart remote, users can search and instantly play content, get recommendations, find entertainment content from TV listings, record on DVR and access Xfinity On Demand.

TV features such as customized social networking and music, radio, sports, traffic and weather apps are also provided.

The X1 is also equipped with a new hybrid DVR set-top box with tru2way and IP capabilities.

A new companion X1 remote control app enables users to use motion and gesture control to drive their TV experience through the touch-screen of their handheld iPhone and iPod touch. For instance, users can swipe their device to page through the interactive TV guides on their television screen; program personalized short-cuts and favorites ("Quick Links") on the TV, and even shake the device to pause On Demand content playing on the television.
