Comcast® provides the best cable deals and internet plans to XFINITY® subscribers. With more and more networks to choose from, you can make your residential TV viewing experience a breeze. Recently, Comcast® and ESPN revealed the launch of ACC Network Extra, SEC Network+, and ESPN3 on XFINITY’s X1 platform. This gives XFINITY® subscribers the capability to stream over the web, or on their connected TV sets, extensive college football coverage with more than 150 live games, as well as coverage of over 5000 live events yearly, comprising international soccer, college basketball, collegiate athletics, and Grand Slam matches.

All content from the said networks of ESPN are searchable with the X1 voice-controlled remote and incorporated into the same menus and screens as the other programming that comes with a subscription of XFINITY® TV. “Simplicity continues to be essential in today’s dynamic media landscape,” Disney and ESPN Media Networks’ Senior VP of Affiliate Sales, Sean Breen, said. “We’re fortunate to have relationships with Comcast® to seamlessly serve customers and sports fans on a platform that delivers the best of both traditional and digital video viewing experiences, and the addition of ESPN3, ACC Network Extra and SEC Network+ are perfect examples of that.”

ESPN3, ACC Network Extra and SEC Network+ add a new dynamic to the already deep catalog of sports programming that’s currently available on X1. Combined with universal voice control and the X1 sports app, we are providing customers with the richest, most immersive sports viewing experience in the country.”
