Comcast’s Xfinity and Fandango businesses announced a unique integration that gives movie fans the ability to find local showtimes and movie tickets right on their television.
Starting with Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Xfinity X1 customers can say “Get tickets” into their X1 voice remote while watching the movie trailer to search more than 30,000 theatrical screens in the U.S., marking the first time this capability is available on a set top box.
The companies expect to extend this feature to additional new releases throughout the year.
X1 customers who watch the latest Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer on Xfinity On Demand will receive an on-screen notification prompting them to say “Get tickets” into their voice remote (or press the info button on the remote) to initiate the online ticket-buying process. From there, they’ll be able to review a list of showtimes at nearby theaters.
Customers can also opt to send the local showtimes to their mobile phone to complete the purchase via Fandango’s mobile app or website.
