Loupe announces its streaming art service is now available to millions of Comcast’s Xfinity customers over the Internet on Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex.
X1 and Flex customers can say “Loupe” into the Xfinity Voice Remote to enjoy Loupe’s streaming art galleries, featuring pieces from emerging and cutting-edge artists across the globe expertly curated into unique collections to complement a variety of tastes and moods, directly on the TV.
“Our progression to new platforms would not be possible without two major assets: breath-taking content and flexible technology,” said Loupe CEO Dot Bustelo. “The launch of Loupe on Xfinity X1 and Flex is an important milestone in our efforts to drive significant growth in the back half of 2020 and well into 2021.”
Loupe features pieces from culturally relevant artists around the globe, such as this one:

Bustelo, an internationally recognized music and entertainment software strategist, has driven Loupe’s tremendous growth over the past five years. Initially launched as a streaming service for art, Loupe began monetizing the content with an art marketplace and channel sponsorships, and most recently moved into both free linear programmed channels and streaming channels supported through advertising. Across all of its available platforms, Loupe is now accessible to an estimated, combined 210 million potential users in the United States alone.
“Loupe is a unique streaming experience. For entertainment providers, it provides another touchpoint with the consumer – something to augment their space and set a mood,” said Loupe investor and Goal Ventures Partner Ned Sherman, also CEO and Publisher of Digital Media Wire.
