Best in Cable Technology - Comcast

By: Julia Hall

The past 25 years have brought us the numerous advances in technology with cable television services improving in spite of satellite competition. Comcast, with its beginnings in 1963, has continued to over come all obstacles with grace and cable TV still ranks high as a competitor in home entertainment services.

Comcast's programming has grown from analog to totally digital, and this affords a plethora of benefits to customers - including imaging quality and crispness of sound. Technology has enabled the use of features and options once thought impossible to help make programs more enjoyable and easy to view. Comcast Cable Service offers viewing flexibility with TiVo and digital video recorder capabilities as these devices enable owners to digitally record and store favorite shows for viewing at more opportune times. The feature-rich remote also includes a Parental Guide to allow absolute owner control over what is viewed in the privacy of the home. This enables one to block unwanted programming by using ratings, titles, channels, or content. An on-screen programming guide makes it simple and convenient to choose a program and includes information about each program to make choosing more informative. Comcast offers more than 275 exciting channels in attractive packages with all being delivered in digital format that provides crystal-clear clarity of picture and sound every time one decides to watch. On Demand Pay-Per-View is a service offered by Comcast that lets one select and view movies when they desire and includes new releases and recent award-winning movies and specials. Live programming may be paused and resumed during unexpected interruptions, and this is an added plus for those whose families and activities create distractions. On Demand offers convenience for the viewer as it gives one freedom from visits to video rental stores.

Comcast services are not limited to only television services - they offer more to their overall customer base by also providing high speed internet service as well as telephone services arranged together in one monthly bill. Bundling enables Comcast to offer services at more manageable rates and makes it easier and more convenient for subscribers to have all three services for one fee. High speed internet services provided by Comcast are from 70 to 100 times quicker than dialup services and enable you to download video and music in addition to the ability to enjoy virtual interactive games and listen to digital music. Broadband services definitely change website access and supply more computer protection from virus-infected software thus making computer experiences more enjoyable and safe for everyone. Phone services offered by Comcast are affordable and a great value and convenient for budget-minded people. All the extras options are included for one low price - voice mail, call forwarding, and caller ID. All local and long distance domestic calls are free with discounted international fees much lower than other providers.
