Enables iPhone and iPod touch Customers to Program their DVR While on the Go
Comcast today announced it has released a new version of the Comcast Mobile application, which now includes a remote DVR programming service (rDVR) that is being rolled out across the country. With the Comcast Mobile app 2.0, customers never have to miss their favorite show or movie because they can program their DVR at any time, from anywhere.
Comcast Mobile, the free downloadable app now available for the iPhone® or iPod touch®, serves as a single access point to some of Comcast's most popular services including Comcast.net email; visual voice mail, which enables customers to view and select which voice mail messages they want to hear; address book sync; real-time TV listings and trailers of On Demand movies.
Customers can utilize the app's new fully-featured TV program guide, which provides their local TV listings line-up, to record programming at home. The app also enables them to:
* Search for a particular program and schedule recordings.
* View a list of scheduled recordings, cancel and create new recordings and switch between multiple DVRs.
* Use the "Quick Record" feature to instantly record with a single tap.
* Sort TV listings by category, such as Movies, Sports, Kids and HD.
In the coming months, the Comcast Mobile app also will make its debut on BlackBerry® devices.
