Comcast: Xfinity Debuts Interactive Voting in Spanish for Telemundo’s ‘La Voz’

Originally published on Comcast.com

Customers can now say “Vota por La Voz” into their Bilingual X1 Voice Remote to cast votes for their favorite artists.

Since 2017, Xfinity X1 customers have been able to use their voice remotes to cast votes for their favorite artists on NBC’s “The Voice.” X1 has since become one of the top voting methods for fans of the popular singing competition. Now, for the first time, Xfinity is also offering voting in Spanish for the much anticipated final round of season two of Telemundo’s “La Voz.”

Telemundo’s “La Voz” returned on Sunday, July 26, welcoming back superstar coaches Luis Fonsi, Alejandra Guzmán, Carlos Vives and Wisin, and 28 finalists, who will compete for the grand prize of $200,000. Fans can vote in Spanish for their favorite artists using their bilingual X1 Voice remote, simply by saying, “Vota por La Voz” and confirming their choice using their remote. For Battles, viewers can cast up to one vote for seven artists during the broadcast. And, during the Semi Finals, viewers can cast up to ten votes per artist during the broadcast.”

This enhancement is one of many in Xfinity’s continued investment to provide Hispanic customers with programming and services that are specifically tailored to their needs. The strength of our content catalog, coupled with the advanced technical capabilities of our Xfinity platforms, such as the X1 Spanish guide, Xfinity xFi in Spanish, and now interactive voting in Spanish, enables us to create entire destinations tailored to the interests and experiences of our diverse customer base.

To vote on X1, tune in to “La Voz” on Sundays at 9/8c on Telemundo until August 9th, 2020.
