Comcast Lets X1 Subs Use Remote to Buy Tickets to Kelly Clarkson Tour
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Comcast and Ticketmaster today announced an industry-first integration that enables Xfinity X1 customers to find tour dates and request concert tickets for their favorite performers directly on the television through Ticketmaster’s open ticketing platform. This integration launches with three-time Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson and her 2019 "Meaning of Life" tour. Beginning today, X1 customers can simply say "Kelly Clarkson Tour" into their Voice Remote to take advantage of a special presale window and see a list of Clarkson’s local performance dates and venues right on the TV.
Saying "Kelly Clarkson Tour" into the X1 Voice Remote brings fans to a dedicated Kelly Clarkson destination. There, X1 customers will see a Get Tickets promotional tile that enables them to review a list of performances and corresponding dates at nearby venues, powered by Ticketmaster's open platform and API, and initiate the online ticket-buying process. Customers can then opt to receive a text message featuring a unique code that will enable them to complete the purchase online.
Kelly Clarkson’s highly anticipated Meaning of Life tour will kick off January 24th, 2019 in Oakland, CA. The 28-city trek will see Clarkson playing arenas across the United States on her first headline run in three years. She will be joined by special guests Grammy-nominee Kelsea Ballerini and last season's winner of NBC's The Voice, Team Kelly's Brynn Cartelli.
Comcast and Ticketmaster will extend this ticketing capability to additional concerts and events on X1. This interactive integration with Ticketmaster follows a recent partnership with Comcast and Fandango enabling customers with X1 to browse local showtimes and theaters for some of the year's most popular theatrical releases on their television.
