Comcast Launches X1 DVR With Cloud Technology And Live In-home Streaming In Delaware, Maryland, Virginia And Washington, D.C.

BALTIMORE, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast today announced it launched X1 DVR with cloud technology and live in-home streaming TV to new Xfinity TV customers in southern Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The technology was recently launched in northern Delaware.

While in the home, customers will be able to watch their DVR recordings over Comcast's managed IP network on their mobile devices and computers; "check-out" DVR recordings by downloading them directly to a mobile device to take on-the-go; and access the X1 interface and live stream practically their entire TV channel lineup, as well as Xfinity On Demand choices, to IP-connected devices.

Comcast plans to roll these features out to additional markets throughout the year.

"We are continuing to give customers a more personalized viewing experience and provide them with a range of ways to enjoy their favorite programs anywhere, anytime," said Tom Coughlin, senior vice president for Comcast's Beltway Region. "The cloud technology and in-home TV streaming is a natural extension of our X1 entertainment operating system and one more way Comcast is adding value for customers through groundbreaking product innovations."

To deliver these new streaming and download features to Xfinity TV customers, Comcast has launched a new Xfinity TV app for iOS and Android tablets and smartphones and a dedicated portal for viewing on computers. To live stream their TV lineup or watch DVR and On Demand programming while on tablets or smartphones in the home, customers will simply download the Xfinity TV app from the App Store, open the app and sign-in with their Xfinity TV credentials. Once signed-in, customers may begin browsing their full channel lineup in the Guide, access thousands of free movies and TV shows via Xfinity On Demand, or scan available recordings for download in the Saved menu. On laptops and computers, customers can sign-in through the Xfinity TV site to access their X1 guide and DVR recordings. For more information, please visit the support page on Comcast.com.
