Comcast Offers Great Values For Families

By: Julia Hall

When you go shopping, you always want to make sure that you're getting the best possible item for your money. This is a simple truth of the American economy: Americans appreciate a good value. This should be true regardless of whether you're shopping for a good or a service, and therefore you'll want to make sure that you're getting the best possible telecommunications services for use in your home. That's why there's Comcast! Comcast has expanded its business from simply offering cable TV to encompassing digital cable TV, high speed Internet service, and home phone service. The fact that Comcast offers all three services means that you can save plenty of money while only having to deal with one customer service center for all of your needs. Since we live in the information age, in many ways high speed Internet access will be your best way of communicating with the outside world and getting entertainment. That's because the World Wide Web- which is the multimedia component of the Internet- is getting more and more complex and comprehensive. Just about everything online is now a multimedia experience. This is a great feature to have added to many different types of applications, but it's also extremely data intensive. Fortunately Comcast's high speed Internet service provides the speed that you need to access all of those data intensive applications.

In fact, at eight megabytes per second maximum download speed, this type of Internet technology is the fastest that you can get in your home and will be more than enough to allow you to do whatever you want online. You'll be able to share videos through YouTube, email photos to all of your friends, download music files from iTunes, and maybe even download a movie in high definition video format! All of these things and more- including participation in virtual worlds like Second Life- will all be open to you through Comcast Cable.

While access to the World Wide Web has become a virtual necessity and a huge source of entertainment and enjoyment, Americans still love to watch TV. That's why Comcast has put together a truly world class cable TV service. First, its entire cable TV system went digital for the best possible picture and sound quality, as well as features like an on screen program guide and an ability to automatically restrict children's viewing. Next, lots of complementary types of technology were added. These include the ability to record TV shows and then play them back later by using a Digital Video Recorder, or DVR. Finally, Comcast rolled out the technology of the future in the form of HDTV and video on demand!

HDTV, which is short for High Definition Television, is an all new TV format that was designed to allow viewers to watch movies in the exact way that the directors intended from the comfort of the viewers own homes. This means the same wide screen aspect ratio as a commercial movie theater screen, a high resolution picture, and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound to envelope the viewer in sound!

Video on demand technology allows viewers to watch what they want to watch, when they want to watch it. Right now it's primarily used for Comcast's pay per view service which is called ON DEMAND.

In addition to all of these great featuresScience Articles, Comcast will provide you with a great alternative to dealing with an old fashioned phone company with its digital voice service. Digital voice provides free domestic long distance and lots of different features that will enhance how you keep in touch with your loved ones.

All of these features make Comcast a great value for you and your family.
