Comcast enhances Xfinity TV remote app

Comcast Business has unveiled enhancements to the X1 for Business entertainment platform with a new mobile app that simplifies the way businesses — including bars and restaurants — manage multiple TVs, enabling them to spend less time channel surfing and more time serving customers, the company said.

With football continuing to reign as Americans´ favorite spectator sport, professional and college football fans will soon be gathering at bars and restaurants across the country to watch this year´s live match-ups. As these establishments offer game-day food and beverage promotions to attract customers, wait staff cannot afford to waste time finding the right remote and channel.

The Xfinity TV Remote App enables staff at bars, restaurants, gyms, retail stores, waiting rooms and lobbies to manage up to 16 TVs at once using a single smartphone or tablet — eliminating the need for separate remotes to control each of the corresponding TV boxes.

The Xfinity TV Remote App is a great example of how Comcast is leveraging its innovations in residential technology to help businesses run their operations better and improve the customer experience. With the remote app business customers can now manage the content and programming on their TVs from a single mobile experience — just as they can at home.
