If there's one streaming service that's earned the title of "game changer," it's X1 by Xfinity. The X1 platform combines pretty much everything you love about entertainment, resulting in a viewing experience that's unlike anything you've ever encountered before.
Don't believe me? Here are six reasons why X1 is about to become your newest, can't-live-without-it obsession.
1. It's crazy easy.
We've all been there: having to scroll through a clunky, confusing guide can make watching TV feel more like a chore than something you actually want to do, but X1 cuts out the frustration by making it easier than ever to find and watch what you like. X1 has the ability to search live TV, On Demand options, and your DVR library all at once, so you spend less time searching and more time binge-watching.
2. The X1 DVR takes multitasking to a whole new level.
The name of the game here is choices. If you're currently obsessed with a ton of shows, that's not a problem; the X1 DVR lets you record up to six shows at once, so there's no more having to pick and choose which episodes you really want to see and which ones you'll have to miss out on. Plus at 500GB, the storage is practically never-ending, so there's plenty of room to hoard as many episodes as you want.
3. You can take your shows with you virtually anywhere.
Stuck out in the middle of nowhere with no internet connection? Dealing with a spiteful cousin who won't give you the WIFI password? Or are you just straight up out of data? Literally none of that matters. X1 lets you download your shows so you can have access to your DVR library even when you don't have internet access.
4. X1 + Netflix = Everything You Need For The Perfect Binge-Watching Session
No more switching between apps trying to choose what to watch and where. You can now access Netflix (as well as a bunch of your other favorite apps) on X1, meaning that all your entertainment addictions are in one convenient place.
5. You can use the voice remote to get recs on what to watch next.
You know that empty feeling you get when you finish an entire series and you have no idea what to watch next? X1 has you covered. Their recommendation feature is already super useful for those of us who are indecisive, but add in the fact that the X1 voice remote is a thing that now exists, and finding something to watch is now easier than ever — all you need is your voice. Just use the voice remote to ask what you should watch next, and X1 will supply you with tons of recs, right there on your screen.
6. The sports coverage is pretty much unbelievable.
Sports fans, this one's for you. Not only does X1 give you the ability to watch and record multiple games at once, as well as stream your favorite sports networks wherever you are, but you also have the option of taking your viewing experience to the next level by accessing real-time scores and stats right on screen. You can even track the score of one game while watching another, so no more flipping between channels in a feverish panic, hoping you don't miss anything good.
