Univision Deportes subscribers can watch the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals live on the Xbox One® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The Univision Deportes app on Xbox One has been live streaming all 64 World Cup Matches - with group matches made available to U.S. Xbox Live members for free. All World Cup Matches have been streamed with real time play-by-play updates through a custom-built feature called "Simulated Snap View" built by Digiflare, the digital agency responsible for design and development of the Univision Deportes app. Viewers can easily "Snap" a side panel while watching the game that provides up-to-the-minute statistics for a more immersive soccer experience. "We're excited that the Univision Deportes app fully utilizes the power of the Xbox One through The Simulated Snap View, which provides soccer fans with a seamless experience that combines rich in-game statistics with over-the-air live gameplay," said Mano Kulasingam, Co-CEO of Digiflare Inc. "We are pleased to partner with Digiflare to extend the Univision Deportes experience to Xbox One," said Scott Levine, SVP, Product & Technology, Univision Communications Inc. "This is further evidence of our strong commitment to offer our audience great experiences tailored to the device and platform of their choosing."

Through Univision Deportes, soccer fans on Xbox One enjoy a destination that provides in-depth player and team statistics, highlight videos and photos to supplement the unprecedented in-app live coverage of the tournament. The Univision Deportes Xbox One app is the ultimate soccer application on Xbox One, offering content in both English and Spanish. Beyond the World Cup, the Univision Deportes app will continue to offer live streaming and VOD content from a variety of leagues including Liga MX and The Mexican National Team. Since the start of the World Cup, the Univision Deportes App has recorded over 3 million downloads.
