Free Calls to Mobile Phones in Six Latin American Countries Added to International Plan

Javier Garcia, Vice President and General Manager of Multicultural Services, Comcast Cable

 

When family and friends live abroad, keeping in touch can sometimes get expensive. Calling card costs and cell phone charges can add up quickly, so we’re always looking for ways to add value to our Xfinity Voice services.

Today we are improving one of our international long distance calling plans — Carefree Minutes Latin America 300 — by adding the ability to make calls to mobile phones in six countries: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, and Venezuela. There are about 6 million Hispanic households in our service area, and we serve large Hispanic markets including Albuquerque, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Miami, Philadelphia, Sacramento, and San Francisco. Plus, we know research shows Hispanics over-index on mobile phone usage.

In addition to these new calling destinations, customers who have our Carefree Minutes Latin America 300 plan can already make five hours of calls a month to landlines in 17 Latin American countries, including: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

The plan is just $9.95 more a month, and it is also included at no extra cost in select Xfinity Latino Triple Play packages.

Another upgrade to the plan includes discounted per-minute rates if customers go over the 300 minutes included. (Previously, the overage per-minute rate was at retail price.)

Our Xfinity Voice team will continue to look for ways to deliver value. We want to help connect our customers to whom and what they love in more ways than ever, for less money.

Se agregan llamadas gratis a teléfonos celulares en seis países latinoamericanos al plan internacional

Javier García, Vicepresidente y Director General de Servicios Multiculturales, Comcast Cable

Cuando la familia y los amigos viven en el extranjero, mantenerse en contacto a veces puede volverse costoso. El precio de las tarjetas telefónicas y los gastos de los teléfonos celulares terminan sumando rápidamente, por eso nosotros siempre buscamos maneras de agregar valor a nuestros servicios de Xfinity Voice.

Hoy, para mejorar uno de nuestros planes internacionales de llamadas de larga distancia —Carefree Minutes Latin America 300—, hemos añadido la posibilidad de realizar llamadas a teléfonos celulares en seis países: Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, República Dominicana y Venezuela. Nuestra área de servicio cubre aproximadamente seis millones de hogares de familias hispanas, y nuestros servicios llegan a mercados hispanos grandes entre los que se incluyen Albuquerque, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Miami, Filadelfia, Sacramento y San Francisco. Además, estamos al tanto de las investigaciones que muestran que los hispanos registran un índice muy elevado en el uso de telefonía móvil.

Además de estos nuevos destinos telefónicos, los clientes adheridos a nuestro plan Carefree Minutes Latin America 300 ya cuentan con cinco horas mensuales de llamadas a teléfonos fijos a diecisiete países latinoamericanos, entre los que se incluyen Argentina, Brasil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, República Dominicana, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, Uruguay y Venezuela.

El plan cuesta sólo $9.95 más por mes, y también está incluido sin ningún costo adicional en los paquetes exclusivos de Xfinity Latino Triple Play.

Otra mejora es que hemos agregado descuentos en el precio por minuto cuando los clientes superan los 300 minutos que vienen incluidos en el plan (anteriormente, el costo total por minuto estaba a precio de venta al público).

Nuestro equipo de Xfinity Voice seguirá buscando modos de entregar valor. Queremos ayudar a que nuestros clientes se mantengan conectados con las personas y las cosas que aman de la mayor cantidad de maneras posibles, por menos dinero.

MIAMI – Minion Mayhem is coming to Miami!  The lovable stars of the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment summer blockbuster hit, Minions, will be at the Ford Championship Weekend from November 20-22, it was announced today by Homestead-Miami Speedway.  The three Minions – Kevin, Stuart and Bob — will be a fixture throughout Homestead-Miami Speedway, making appearances with fans and participating in the Ford EcoBoost 400 pre-race ceremonies on Sunday, November 22.   Minions will be released November 24 on Digital HD and Blu-ray/DVD on December 8.

NBC News’ Anchor and “Today” Show co-host Hoda Kotb will serve as Grand Marshal at the Ford EcoBoost 400.  Ms. Kotb, the popular co-host of NBC’s “Today” fourth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford, is also a “Dateline NBC” correspondent and New York Times Bestselling author and has been at NBC since 1998.  She will give the command for drivers to start their engines prior to the Sprint Cup Series championship race on Sunday, November 22.

“We are extremely excited to have the Minions and Hoda Kotb join us for Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November,” Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer said. “The Minions are characters beloved by both adults and kids and we think our fans are going to enjoy seeing them around the venue throughout our NASCAR weekend. Hoda is a household name in national news, and we are thrilled to have her join us for what is going to be an electrifying Ford EcoBoost 400.”

In addition, the Minions will introduce the “Minionwagon”, a one-of-a-kind Ford Transit Connect Wagon that will be making appearances on a road trip at select locations, including as the Grand Marshal car for Ford Championship Weekend and a stop at Universal Orlando® Resort, on their way to the Today Show in New York City.  The Minions will also be the entitlement sponsor of the “Minions Kids Zone” in the Homestead-Miami Speedway display area, making an appearance on November 22.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to bring the Minions to the Ford Championship Weekend for the culmination of the NASCAR season,” said John Morici, Managing Director, US & Canada, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. “NASCAR is a hugely popular and important family entertainment brand.  This event at the Homestead-Miami Speedway is a great showcase for Minions, one of the most highly anticipated home entertainment releases of the year.”

The breakout stars the world fell in love with in the unprecedented worldwide blockbusters Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 headline their own movie for the first time in Minions.  After their latest explosive mistake leaves them without an evil leader, the Minions fall into a deep depression.  With the tribe on the brink of collapse, three unlikely heroes – Kevin, Stuart, and Bob—embark on a journey to find a new big boss.  When their quest leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), our three heroes must face their biggest challenge yet: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation. Minions also features the voice talents of Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and Allison Janney.

 Sicario_RGB-3D-BluRay-OCard1-887x1024[1]


SANTA MONICA, CA (November 16, 2015) – Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow), Oscar® winner Benicio Del Toro (Best Supporting Actor, Traffic, 2000), Oscar® nominee Josh Brolin (Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008), and Victor Garber (Titanic) star in the must-see drug war thriller Sicario, arriving on Digital HD December 22 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the film will also be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand January 5. An official selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, the edge-of-your-seat action-packed story follows a covert group of crime fighters on a treacherous cross-border operation to take down a Mexican drug kingpin.

From the director of Prisoners comes this taut, critically acclaimed thriller filled with pulse-pounding suspense, shot by twelve-time Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins. After an idealistic FBI agent (Blunt) is recruited by a government task-force official (Brolin) to pursue a drug lord, she begins a perilous mission that forces her to question everything she believes—and pits her against a shadowy consultant (Del Toro) with a dangerous agenda.

The Sicario Blu-ray and Digital HD releases include in-depth behind-the-scenes interviews with Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro and a look at the visual design of the film with director Denis Villeneuve. Also included is a look behind the creation of the score with Oscar®-nominated composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (Best Original Score, The Theory of Everything, 2014); and a discussion about writer Taylor Sheridan’s research for the script. The Blu-ray is encoded in Dolby TrueHD and features a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack, which delivers captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. The Sicario Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.
