Nobody can call the 2016 Election season boring. And with a recent poll showing 73 percent of voters are likely to watch the upcoming debates starting Monday, September 26th, interest in the election has never seemed higher.
Voters can catch up on political news and speeches from the primaries to the conventions to today’s headlines via the Election Central destination on Xfinity On Demand (a division of Comcast NBCUniversal No. 29 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity). With more than 150 hours of content today and growing, Election Central is a hub for accessing election-related programming.
Need a quick refresher on Trump and Clinton’s biggest campaign moments? Just say “Election Central” into your X1 voice remote, and X1 users can quickly access content from this year’s earlier debates, town halls and forums. Election Central also features content and web clips of current predictions and previews from a variety of networks and news providers, including ABC News, AP, CNBC, CNN, Fox Business, Fox News, MSNBC, NBC News and Newsy.
Want to see Ronald Reagan’s 1980 Republican National Convention speech? Or Bill Clinton’s from 1992? We’ve got that, too. X1 users can watch archived coverage from Republican and Democratic National Conventions and speeches dating back to 1948, and specials on presidential history like “The Roosevelts” and “Living with Lincoln.”
