Bill Connors

Comcast innovation is in fine form with these three on the case. Connors oversaw a suite of new Comcast Cable products during the past year, including the Storm Ready WiFi device, the Xumo Stream Box and the EntertainmentOS platform and introduced Apple’s AirPlay feature for the Xfinity Stream app. Significant milestones under Herrin’s leadership in 2023 include the launching of the first entertainment OS-powered device in the U.S. with Xumo Stream Box; the debut of NOW TV, the first streaming offering in the market to combine a live TV streaming service, free ad-supported streaming TV channels, and subscription VOD service in one bundle, and the delivery of multigig symmetrical speeds to the first residential customers in world-first DOCSIS 4.0 deployments in several markets. Butz, meanwhile, oversaw Xfinity’s launch of Storm Ready and also oversaw advancements on the Xfinity network, laying the groundwork for multi-gigabit symmetrical speeds for more than 50 million homes and businesses before the end of 2025.
