XFINITY partnered with bloggers such as me for this program. As part of this program, I received compensation for my time. They did not tell me what to purchase or what to say about any product mentioned in these posts. XFINITY believes that consumers and bloggers are free to form their own opinions and share them in their own words. XFINITY’s policies align with WOMMA Ethics Code, FTC guidelines and social media engagement recommendations.
We all know Google Fiber is coming to Nashville soon, so when XFINITY reached out to me to see what features they offer, I did some research to see what they offer versus their competitors!
XFINITY reached out to me, asking for my help in getting the word out on some of the features that they have to offer.
It’s no secret that here on Family Friendly Daddy Blog, we are a family who loves to travel. Every summer, we fly out to California where my wife is from, and spend time with her side of the family.
Plus here recently, we’ve made 4 day weekend trips to Atlanta in Georgia, Pensacola and Destin in Florida, as well as Asheville and Bryson City in North Carolina.
We are a family who road trips together, that’s for sure. Our 5 and a half year-old son does amazingly well on these long drives; but of course, my wife always loads up the Kindle with kid-appropriate shows for him to watch.
That’s one of the ways that XFINITY comes in to play: With X1 DVR, we can watch our recorded shows from anywhere. That’s a feature that Google Fiber doesn’t offer.
Not to mention, this is our son’s first summer off from school; he’s always been in preschool. But with a baby sister due to be born next week (!), he’ll be home with Mommy and the new baby. I have a feeling XFINITY X1 DVR can come in handy on those rainy summer days.
It allows for 500 GB of storage, meaning there is access to plenty of shows and movies after you download them.
I was curious- I went ahead and checked out which of my son’s favorite shows I recognized in the Family & Kids section of XFINITY TV:
From Disney Junior, I spotted Chuggington, The Octonauts, and Special Agent Oso.
From Sprout, I saw Animal Mechanicals, Caillou, and The Berenstain Bears.
From Cartoon Network, I noticed Legends of Chima and Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.
On Nick, there is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Henry Danger.
And on Nick Jr., there’s Blaze & The Monster Machines as well as Paw Patrol.
These shows I’ve named are only scratching the surface. The ones I’ve named here are simply the ones I recognize that my son likes and already watches. There are dozens more shows, not to mention movies- and even more channels I didn’t mention.
So there’s my overview of some the features that XFINITY offers in Nashville. I have more to say about XFINITY, but I’ll save it for another post in May. Stay tuned…
