During the last 10 years. The web and the entertainment technology it has started to support have developed hugely. Both the number of valuable (i.e. with something interesting to say) web sites and the quantity of available TV have increased almost exponentially. You can’t take advantage of the growth in quality, quantity and technology unless you have a service package that gives you the right (i.e. quickest and most secure) kind of access to the connections.
Comcast cable now provides more than 250 high quality digital TV channels, plus one of the fastest low cost internet connections you are likely to find anywhere – and digital telephony too! The telephone service ties into everything else so you get a VoIP class system for one single monthly payment.
Comcast combines its broadband access and a cable TV service with a grab bag of the latest technological advances. You’ll get access to HDTV as well as regular TV; Digital TV; TV on demand; and even a highly advance digital recorder, which is good for up to 80 hours of normal digital programming or 15 hours of HD.
In the future maybe Comcast cable will even be capable of supplying us with a digital recorder that ups the ante on the number of HDTV hours it can capture. That said of course, anyone filling 80 hours of their TV recorder either watches waaaay too much TV or never has the time to watch anything – in either case I think 80 hours is a little more than overkill!
Comcast cable has actually taken the step of adding a proprietary mark to the idea of TV on demand – buying up a ton of recently released movies (apparently Comcast has up to 10,000 active films in its database, which you can watch when you want) and allowing you to watch them as and when you wish.
Comcast’s bigger programme packages contain hundreds of HDTV channels, all delivered digitally and all sortable using the rather snazzy in screen Comcast viewing guide – a different way of working out what you want to watch that really lets you control your viewing. No more time wasted and no more programmes missed because of course you can record stuff or go back and watch on demand as you like!
Concerned parents need worry no longer – with Internet, with telephone and with TV. Comcast cable packages are all totally parent controlled, with interactive, easy to use Parental Control settings for all content you don’t want your children getting involved in. The settings are simple to master and they’ll apply exactly as you have set them to.
Comcast’s powerful wireless router can handle every device in your home – even if all the family are watching different streams on different devices all at the same time. By investing in the transmission and routing technology necessary to achieve that 8 MBps, Comcast has ensured that its cable delivery is a sensible choice for most households.
From telephony to home work, and from entertainment to staying on top of the latest news, Comcast cable is blazing a top-technology trail to a new kind of communications media consumption. Cost effective and powerful, it’s a no brainer.
