In case you had any doubts that Comcast is serious about improving your sports-watching experience, the cable giant is making its efforts abundantly clear. It just acquired OneTwoSee, a Philadelphia-area sports tech startup that has played a big role in the interactive sports TV upgrades for Comcast's X1 set-top box over the past year. No, Comcast isn't tipping its hand just yet, but it's reasonable to presume that real-time stats and other sports-related perks will become that much more central in the living room going forward. And no, OneTwoSee won't ditch efforts on other platforms -- you can still expect it to bring its technology to smartphones (not to mention other companies) in the future.
