Comcast® is arguably the best internet provider in the US, but they are surely amongst the top cable providers in the country because of their amazing offers and TV deals. Currently, Comcast® further raised the bars for other cable providers with their tie-up with Fandango.
Comcast® joined hands with one of the best American ticketing companies in order to offer a unique deal for the Xfinity® customers. They can now see the latest movie details including the show timings and availability of movie tickets on their television. The cable provider is also offering the option to buy movie tickets by using a voice-activated X1 remote.
People who are using Xfinity® set-top boxes can enjoy this amazing offer from May 30, 2018, onwards. The first movie that you can watch by availing tickets through your TV at your home is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which will hit the theaters on June 22, 2018. For this, all you have to do is to say “get tickets” into your voice-activated X1 remote while watching the trailer of the movie on your Xfinity® TV. Instantly, around 30,000 theater screens to be playing the movie will be displayed on your screen from which you can pick your desired one.
Note that you can also press the Info button on your remote in order to begin the online ticketing process. Comcast® and Fandango may soon extend this feature to almost every new release throughout the year. You can also choose to send the local show timings to your smartphone in order to book tickets via the website or mobile app of Fandango.
The vice president of strategy and execution wing in Comcast® cable, Nancy Spears, said, “Fandango is the perfect partner to help us give customers a fun, easy way to go right from watching TV at home to enjoying the newest releases in the movie theater.”
She further added, “Xfinity® X1 enables us to continually explore one-of-a-kind experiences that complement the TV viewing experience, allowing viewers to interact with content where and when it is convenient for them. We’re launching this experience starting with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in conjunction with the film’s trailer and look forward to further enhancing additional movie titles with this functionality throughout the year.”
The Senior Vice President and Head of Business Development and Strategy wing at Fandango, Mark Young, said, “At Fandango, we are always looking for innovative ways to super-serve movie fans, when they are engaging with movie content so that they can easily act on their interest and purchase a ticket to the theater on the platforms and devices they use. We’re thrilled to team up with Xfinity® to offer millions of X1 customers across the country a convenient new way to use their TV set and voice-activated remote to buy movie tickets right from their living rooms.”
