XUMO may be a popular brand with cord-cutters, but that has not stopped it from linking with one of the biggest cable delivery companies in the country. XUMO announced a partnership with Comcast that will deliver its free digital Internet-based channels through the X1 platform. The X1 platform is Comcast’s ecosystem built into its own TV set-top boxes that features a number of on demand options along with of course programming from Comcast pay TV partners.
X1 customers are now able to access XUMO by saying “XUMO” into their X1 voice remote or by finding it within the apps section. XUMO continues to be available on Xfinity Flex, Comcast’s recently launched service for Internet-only customers that enables them to enjoy many of their favorite streaming entertainment experiences on the big screen, while also offering them a TV-connected device to manage their digital home.
“We’re focused on bringing our service to the most popular devices available and have expanded to a record number of new platforms this year alone,” noted XUMO’s senior vice president of product, Chris Hall. “Partners like Comcast are embracing FAST apps like XUMO that provide easy access to a wealth of additional top-quality programming. Providing expanded live channel options for customers on Xfinity X1 and Flex, Android TV and our entire app portfolio is core to our mission to provide the best free entertainment experience available in streaming today.”
XUMO’s continued expansion and support of a growing array of new and popular platforms – including pay-TV providers, connected devices, smart TVs and mobile handsets – is bringing the company’s FAST service to a wealth of new viewers. In addition to prioritizing as-it-happens news and events, XUMO offers a deep library of premium on-demand content, including thousands of movie titles; quality programming spanning several genres including from popular channels such as This Old House and Divorce Court; and full seasons of popular shows such as Unsolved Mysteries and Forensic Files from FilmRise and Nurses Who Kill, Wonderland and animated series Black Jack from AMMO.
