"Businesses across the country can now offer their customers the same award-winning video experience that millions of people experience every day in their living room," said Christian Nascimento, vice president Product and Premise Services, Comcast Business. "X1 for Business is a game-changer - whether it's a bar or restaurant integrating sports stats into the viewing experience, a hotel or gym giving customers an easier way to find what they want to watch, or a small business helping their guests pass the time in the lobby or waiting room."

X1 for Business features include:

  • Voice control
  • On-screen guide
