XFINITY becomes new cable brand for Comcast

February 17, 2011

Comcast XFINITY logoYou may have noticed that the word “Comcast” has been replaced in many places with the word “XFINITY” over the past year or so. But what exactly does that mean? Some probably thought a competing company called XFINITY bought Comcast. And some probably thought that Comcast just changed their name completely. Let’s set your mind at ease. XFINITY is just the new name for Comcast’s cable brand. It’s a whole new brand for a new technology platform and products. This new brand will serve as a foundation for Comcast’s customers, allowing them more options in high-definition (HD) television and more speed.

It’s like adding a second more powerful engine on an already fast speed boat!

Check pricing and available of XFINITY from Comcast in your area.

XFINITY TV, XFINITY Voice and XFINITY Internet are the new names for Comcast’s rebranded products in available areas. Those three products are available as one bundled offering called, “XFINITY Triple Play.” That deal comes for one low price, which is cheaper than all three products on their own.

With XFINITY Internet, you’ll get the fastest availabledownload speeds , which will allow you to stream HD movies and TV shows without buffering or waiting. This service also includes online security for no extra charge, featuring Norton Security Suite, one of the top-rated online security systems around.

And for your television, XFINITY TV has well over 3,000 HD movies. And the number of On-Demand HD television shows make them one of the leaders in the industry. Also available through On Demand is an ever-expanding library of 3D movies and sports. It’s pretty obvious that Comcast’s XFINITY brand continues to keep them ahead of the pack.

For those needing home phone service, XFINITY Voice includes unlimited long-distance and local calling with crystal clear clarity, in the United States, up north in Canada and down south in Puerto Rico.

XFINITY’s new Mobile app is just one more way that Comcast makes people’s lives simpler, in times — most would agree — that seem to be increasingly busy. You are able to get the application on iPhones, the Android and now, you can even get it on the iPad. You can also manage your XFINITY account from your smart phone, which enables you to view your latest invoice, set up automatic payments or just make a one-time payment.

Also, a great new feature is Comcast’s XFINITY TV app that allows you to change the channels on any TV in the house connected to an XFINITY box, or you can just access TV listings. This essentially makes your phone an extra remote control. That means no more missing out on shows because you were away from your house adn you forgot to program your DVR! You can remotely program it to record any show from one of the cable packages you signed up for.

XFINITY TV might be a new name, but just consider it an even better extension of the already great Comcast brand. Check to see Comcast’s prices for XFINITY in your area.
