Comcast Android App Coming Soon

Want to tell your Xfinity to record the Jersey Shore while creepin’ at the bar just after GTL’in’?  Then Comcast has your back.  They managed to fist pump their way into announcing that an Android app is in the works, we just aren’t really sure when…

Finally, we have introduced a mobile app that runs on the i*hone and i*od Touch and we’ve blogged about that here. While one of the most popular features of this app is the ability to remotely control your DVR so you can record your favorite shows on the go, it also provides a number of other very useful phone features. My favorite is the ability to auto-forward calls to your home phone directly to your mobile device. In this way, if you’re at the beach or out of town, you’ll never miss a call. You can also receive “push” notifications that someone has left you a voicemail at home and you can check and listen to your home voicemail via the app. We hope to make the app work on as many different devices as possible, including Blackberry and Android.

So it’s like DVR with Google Voice mixed in.  Wait, people have land lines?

    I’m sure there are many people who have Comcast that are very anxious for this app to release. Fortunately I work for DISH and I already have the new Sling adapter for my 722 receiver and I can watch TV anywhere I want to through my phone provider’s 3G network. The beauty of it is I can use my laptop too and I take it with me when I go visit the in-laws to catch up on my teams that are playing when the “ladies” are watching how to make quilts. (Not my thing.)

    It costs me less to have comcast phone service than not to have it. If you purchase internet, tv and voice they give you a bundle price reduction.

    Any update on this app? One I will actually USE… and Its taking forever to come out! COME ON COMCAST! Not EVERYONE has a DAMN iCrapfone!!!!

    DVR is great – what about an app that has better surfing / viewing TV shows and movies available depending on your account setup? Blockbuster has a decent app – would be nice to get my on demand shows and such from Comcast, too …

    Wait a minute, Contrash is coming out with an app? WTF???? They should try to come out with better service first!!! I mean Xshititty, I forgot they're trying to change their image. Directv and Verizon FiOS already have their own apps and their service works. It blows when a company like Contrash can bully you into their service, never truly repair the issue you my have with their service, charge you an outrageous amount for their service and get away with it because in most areas they're the only ones available as a tv/internet/phone provider

  • Thisguy

    Love the idea of apps like this, but please wake me up when Comcast is finally irrelevant in the television programming space. There are few companies I hate as much as Comcast. No doubt they will find a way to charge for this, tangle the interface in advertisements, and create such an unusable piece of crap that it makes you want to pull your own teeth out as your phone crashes. Have I mentioned I hate Comcast?

      this is the truest statement ive ever read in my entire life :)

    Why all the hate for Comcast? I had Dish and Direct TV, and Comcast is far better than both. Less downtime, and their customer service has been far superior.

    That being said, does this app allow me to watch cable on my phone a'la Slingbox? Or is it just for phone/e-mail/internet stuff?

    I hear that land lines are something that comes out of a wall? Is that true?

    Someones a faaaann ;D

    This is great — I don't have comcast TV (I got dish network) but I do have comcast for my landline and home internet. I live in the sticks and they were my only option for internet, so I got phone too. This is nice because of the way the comcast phones are set up, you have a voicemail — which is nice — but there's nothing like a blinking light on an answering machine telling us we have a message. If I could push the call or the message to my cell, I'd be set.

  • NuclearFluxx

    Won't this app need to be specific to your cable, satellite provider depending on their cable boxes and programs?

    On a side note, what is GTL, I have heard it thrown around a lot lately but I am ignorant, I don't have TV at my house.

    First off Comcast Suc*s! Fios baby.. and the Verizon app is flawless!

    • Bret

      TOTALLY AGREE! I switched from Comsuck to FiOS a year ago, and love it. Plus, the Verizon (soon to be Frontier?) app has been around to control my DVR for a long time! Welcome to the 2010's Comsuck.

  • Droidzilla

    I'll hook up a landline for my telegraph and then pay my phone bill via Pony Express. Then I'll get this app.

    • Droidzilla

      Like a mirage, the sweet succulence fades before your eyes with nary a drop to quench your thirst. Though you have no less, you still feel as though the keenest loss has been borne upon you. So sad.
