Comcast has launched its Xfinity suite of products, including expanded on-demand choices, to some of its customers in Vermont.
The nation's largest distributor is rolling out the new brand under the Xfinity TV, Xfinity Internet and Xfinity Voice banners, which delivers increased Internet speeds, more on demand and HD choices as well as converged services like 150,000 choices of "anytime, anywhere" online entertainment with XfinityTV.com.
Brattleboro, Rutland and Bennington are the first areas in Vermont equipped with the Xfinity platform following Comcast's completion of its Digital Network Enhancement project there. This initiative paves the way for Comcast to offer 100 high-definition channels
, along with more than 25,000 on demand choices a month, including 6,000 in HD, 50 to 70 foreign language channels, and 50 Mbps download speeds. That capacity will increase to 100+ Mbps and faster in the future
The Digital Network Enhancement project will continue across the state of Vermont on a rolling basis in the coming months.
"Xfinity represents the future of our company and it's a promise to our customers that we'll keep innovating," said Mary McLaughlin, senior vice president of Comcast's Western New England Region, in a statement. "It also demonstrates our commitment to continually enhance our products and services so our customers can enjoy the best entertainment and communications choices wherever, whenever and however they want."
Additionally, the company recently completed a statewide launch of a new on-screen program guide that delivers a faster, more user-friendly experience for the company's digital TV customers and paves the way for future enhancements. The company has also launched the Xfinity TV and Xfinity Mobile apps.http://www.multichannel.com/article/...In_Vermont.php
