iTunes to Continue to Offer NBC (Comcast) Downloadable Content

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Apple News" @ 07:00 PM

http://www.appleinsider.com/article...bc_content.html

"Comcast agreed to continue licensing of NBC content to online video services like Apple's iTunes in order to receive government approval of its acquisition of broadcast network NBC."

Owning both the content and a primary delivery mechanism, Comcast has agreed to continue providing NBC programs to the iTunes Store. Obviously being scrutinized by the regulatory folks has had an impact, but, now a user can cancel their Comcast account, and still buy and watch NBC content via iTunes, and, pay Comcast indirectly. Seems like a win-win for Comcast, but, alas, they're still holding-out on providing streaming content for Apple TV 2.

Comcast App Adds DVR Functionality

"Comcast's app acts as a hub for the company's video, voice, and data services. Now the just released version 2.0 of the app adds new DVR control functions for select markets. Previously Comcast customers could use the iPhone OS app to manage their Comcast voice mail, sync address book, access email, view TV listings, and watch trailers for on-demand programming."

Unfortunately for my friends that have Comcast, it doesn't work yet in Oregon. The only states they are using it in are PA, DE, VA, MD, MA, AR, TN, AZ, and UT but they say additional markets will be brought out soon. The app is free for the iPhone and iPod Touch, and require compatible Comcast services.

Comcast App for Subscribers

"Comcast's new iPhone and iPod touch app allows subscribers to check and send e-mail, listen to their VoIP voicemails, check out TV listings, and more. It may not be of much use if you don't subscribe to those services, but hey, it works."

If you are a Comcast subscriber, you could probably get some use out of this with all the features they have on it. Limited customer base for this application but I'm glad companies put them out, it makes managing your accounts with them that much easier. AT&T, Chase and Well Fargo are some of the company specific applications I use regularly and if I was a Comcast subscriber, I'd be adding this one too.
