Comcast: DirecTV ‘Built This Thingy on Tech That’s Old’

Comcast pokes fun of AT&T subsidiary DirecTV in a new series of promotions for its Xfinity products. Its latest spot features actors holding satellite TV antennas while dancing to a parody of “We Built This City,” the 1985 hit from Jefferson Starship.

While touting the next-gen features of its X1 platform, including a remote control that responds to voice commands, Comcast suggests that DirecTV’s tech is outdated.
