Comcast has launched the XiOne, a new global wireless streaming device currently available in Italy and Germany to Sky Q customers and beginning its rollout in the United States to Xfinity Flex customers.
The XiOne supports WiFi 6, 4K UHD, HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, and it comes with a new smaller voice remote. The new device also boasts faster processing and increased memory as compared with the Xi6, the device used in building Comcast's X1 and Flex hardware. The pumped-up specs should enable quicker switching and navigation in and out of apps, which could be seen as future proofing as more and more content is being streamed online by consumers.
The new device is part of Comcast's larger hardware strategy to own "input A" on TV sets for both its internet and video customers across the globe - and better compete against the likes of Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Google Chromecast. Xfinity Flex comes with more than 10,000 free online movies and TV shows-including live streaming TV-from ESPN3, Xumo, Pluto, Tubi TV, Cheddar, YouTube, and more.
The Xfinity Flex box features an integrated guide and voice control, enabling customers to easily browse and access programming across apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, and Showtime, rent and purchase movies and shows from the digital store, access their digital lockers across platforms by pairing their account with Movies Anywhere, or listen to music from Pandora, iHeartRadio, and XITE.
