Comcast, one of the country’s largest cable, internet, and phone companies, is now offering the community more than just “triple play.” The Comcast headquarters, located in downtown Philadelphia, is showcasing a great holiday show until New Year’s Day.

The free 15-minute holiday show is played on the world’s largest mm LED video wall.  The screen’s 10-million pixels of clarity bring the actors featured in the show to life. When first entering the 975 feet tall Comcast building, large wooden panels face the opening doorway. But when a guest takes a closer look, the top half of the panels is merely a projection. Similar to a 3-D effect, the images portrayed on the screen look touchable.

Throughout the day, on the hour, The Comcast Holiday Spectacular begins. From a nighttime view of the skyline of Philadelphia to Santa taking off into the sky, every scene in the show is perfectly clear and life-like. The graphics are so realistic, guests feel as if the show is being performed right in front of their eyes.

From parents to teenagers, the Comcast show is great for people of all ages. Families should take the time to wrap up the holiday season by experiencing the exciting Comcast show.
