To honor Hispanic Heritage Month, Comcast is offering thousands of hours of programming and a unique virtual experience that will provide families and individuals of all ages with the opportunity to learn about Hispanic culture and traditions, celebrate this special community, and share their stories with others.

"The activities we have planned for Hispanic Heritage Month will provide a space to highlight Latino culture, and celebrate stories of resilience and achievement while allowing customers to share their own stories with their voices."

Some of the highlighted collections include pioneers and revolutionaries, immigration stories, innovative filmmakers, music legends, Afro-Latino and Afro-Taino pride, Oscar winners, Emmy winners, and more. All content can be found within the  Xfinity On Demand Latino destination or by simply saying "Latino" on the Xfinity Voice bilingual remote control.

That, and no other, is the future of Hispanics in the United States.
