Xfinity Home adds EcoSaver, a new cloud-based solution that learns heating and cooling patterns of a home for additional energy savings. Comcast, a global media and technology company, today announced the launch of Xfinity Home Control, a new product under the Xfinity Home umbrella of services.
Additionally, Comcast is adding to its Xfinity Home service today with the launch of EcoSaver, a new cloud-based solution that can help customers potentially reduce their energy use and save money on their utility bills year-round. Xfinity Home is a broadband and cloud-based platform that provides next-generation home security, control and energy management features that allow customers to stay connected to their home and family through the use of an interactive Web portal, mobile devices and the free Xfinity Home app. Xfinity Home is one of the primary services that takes advantage of the WiFi speeds that Comcast delivers. Comcast Cable is the nation's largest video, high-speed Internet and phone provider to residential customers under the XFINITY brand and also provides these services to businesses.
Gary Zenkel, who also serves as President of Operations & Strategy of NBC Sports Group, offered a behind-the-scenes look at the NBC Olympics team, on the ground in Rio, and at NBC Sports headquarters in Stamford, CT.
For the first time ever, United States active duty and retired service members and their families worldwide will be able to a view NBC Olympics’ streaming coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics from their personal computers and devices – all 4,500 hours of coverage.
We sat down with Jim Bell, Executive Producer of NBC Olympics to discuss how he and his team prepare for one of the biggest televised events. NBC Olympics, Facebook and Instagram are partnering to bring fans together with unique content surrounding the Games of the XXXI Olympiad from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Comcast said it will launch its next-generation TV service, Xfinity TV on the X1 Platform, along with a new remote-control app starting in Boston and followed by other major markets in the coming weeks.
The X1 service will be available to new Xfinity triple-play customers with HD DVR service at no additional cost.
The MSO touts the X1 platform -- which it debuted at last year's Cable Show as Project Xcalibur -- as a "cloud-based" service, which combines interactive, customized apps and social media features delivered over IP with traditional TV services. The X1 service will be delivered via new hybrid DVR set-top boxes, running tru2way and IP, as well as an enhanced remote control that Comcast said offers greater responsiveness and does not require a line-of-sight connection to the set-top.
In addition, Comcast is introducing a new companion X1 remote control app that lets customers use motion and gesture controls to control their TVs through the touch-screen of an iPhone or iPod touch.
Also Monday, Comcast announced that it is developing a personalized "dashboard" user interface -- spanning TVs, laptops, tablets and smartphones -- that combines up-to-date information with customers' Xfinity TV, voice, Internet and home security services. Codenamed "Project Dayview," the dashboard is scheduled to be available to Comcast subscribers later this year. For customers with the Xfinity Home security service, Project Dayview shows home alarm system status, lights, thermostat and room temperatures and security video feed.
The Project Dayview interface can be used as a screensaver for when the TV is not being actively used, and displays content based on time of day; for example, showing rush-hour traffic in the morning or the night's primetime television lineup in the late afternoon.
Comcast today announced its next-generation television experience, Xfinity TV on the X1 Platform, and a new X1 remote control app is available in Houston. The X1 platform incorporates IP technology, using cloud servers on Comcast’s network that allow Comcast to integrate interactive, customized apps and social media features with its traditional video services to create an entirely new television experience. The new companion X1 remote control app enables customers to use motion, gesture and voice control to drive their TV experience through the touch screen of their handheld iPhone and iPod touch. Customers can now watch DVR recordings on devices in the home and download recorded content to take on-the-go. Comcast today announced it will launch X1 DVR with cloud technology and live in-home streaming TV to new Xfinity TV customers in the company’s Boston region. To deliver these new streaming and download features to Xfinity TV customers, Comcast has launched a new Xfinity TV app for iOS tablets and smartphones and a dedicated portal for viewing on computers.
The flexibility of the X1 platform allows for innovative new features and functionality that extend far beyond the existing television interface and create a convenient and intuitive TV experience.
We’re changing TV from something that hangs on the wall to an advanced platform for every screen.
Families can now use Common Sense Media ratings to filter age-appropriate content for live programming in addition to On Demand and online. Comcast Launches X1 DVR with Cloud Technology and Live In-Home Streaming in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.


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. 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. Over the years I’ve treated my TV viewing as a personal sport — with the primary objective of getting as much of my favorite content as I can while spending as little money as humanly possible.
At various times I’ve plugged my Mac into my television using an HDMI adapter, used the PlayOn service to stream content from my computer or my wireless network, and even cut the cord completely for a while in favor of over-the-air broadcast channels, supplemented by Netflix and other streaming services. I have been testing this sleek black cable box for the past three weeks, but to call it a cable box really doesn’t do it justice. Here are some of the highlights from my usage of the X1 over the past few weeks, and some of the areas where it needs to get better. Apps: There are several Internet-connected apps on the X1, including weather, stocks and traffic.
But the app that shows the most promise is sports — displaying mini box scores of NFL, NCAA and MLB games in progress or coming up, with quick links to watch or record games as part of your cable package. While watching a game or browsing other channels, the sports app can be positioned off to one side of the screen, showing the score and additional details about the game, such as runners on base or a graphic of the latest scoring drive.
One big opportunity for improvement: It would great to be able to click to watch highlights from games after they’re finished. But as I explained on last week’s GeekWire radio show, this one place where the current state of cable TV starts to feel like an interim solution.
No doubt we’ll get there eventually, and Comcast is taking a step in this direction with the X2, by making DVR recordings available via the cloud.
Search: The X1 remote is straightforward and easy to use if you just remember to hit that big Xfinity button repeatedly. Personally, I prefer this to alternative input methods such as barking out commands to my Xbox 360 Kinect sensor.
For easier searching, there’s an iPhone and iPad app available for the X1, letting you locate and launch a program by typing into the device keyboard, or using voice commands. One nice touch: The clock and green light on the front of the box can be dimmed from a simple on-screen interface. So for the time being, at least, it looks like I’ll end up with two powerful but incomplete boxes under my television.

It wasn’t long ago that home automation was a concept for the future, but today Comcast is utilizing cloud and broadband-based technologies that make innovations like remote home security and lifestyle management accessible to consumers right from their smartphones.
Xfinity Home is a new generation of services that allow users to control or monitor security cameras, smoke detectors, thermostats, lighting and motion sensors, all through an in-home touch screen console or remotely through a Web-based portal or Internet-connected device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
Cloud technology and Comcast’s large-scale network — including the largest private cloud in the country — have made it possible to deliver these services to customers across the United States.
Comcast has established new partnerships that will drive additional innovation in this realm. This advancement is just one example of what is possible when combining Comcast’s vast network and cloud technology. We strive to create the best content and constantly pursue innovation to delight our customers. Xfinity Home Control is for customers who want smart home solutions like video monitoring and the ability to either schedule or remotely access lighting and thermostat controls, but do not choose the professional security monitoring that is offered with other Xfinity Home services, which are now called Xfinity Home Secure. The EcoSaver service, paired with the Xfinity Home thermostat, learns the unique heating and cooling patterns of a home and makes automatic and incremental adjustments to the thermostat based on real-time weather data, the thermal characteristics of the house and the temperature preferences of the occupants. Last week, Comcast and OSRAM SYLVANIA announced an agreement to offer energy efficient light bulbs that can be controlled remotely from anywhere through the Xfinity Home platform. Comcast recently introduced a new Wireless Gateway that gives customers the nation’s fastest wireless speeds with the most coverage throughout the connected home. For the first time, Comcast NBCUniversal has built a destination that will combine live television, online streaming and on demand content, athlete profiles, and up-to-the-minute stats – in one integrated NBC Olympics dashboard that marries the storytelling of NBCUniversal with Comcast technology. The service pulls information from other integrated applications to regularly refresh content that's most relevant, Comcast said.
The dashboard also is designed to let users to put their personal media and photos on TV, by synching with various third-party media sources. The live TV streaming feature provides access to channel lineup and the X1 guide on devices in the home.


To live stream their TV lineup or download DVR recordings 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. Comcast has invested in technology to build an advanced network that delivers among the fastest broadband speeds, and brings customers personalized video, communications and home management offerings.
Additional features coming to X1 include a talking guide, instant On Demand, voicemail apps and Spanish language guide and navigation. Watch as Charlie Herrin, Senior Vice President, Product Design and Development for Comcast Cable, talks about X1's latest advancements and a look ahead at what's to come.
Within the Kids Guide view, families can ensure that kids only have access to age-appropriate content. Live TV streaming feature provides access to channel lineup, Xfinity On Demand and X1 Guide on devices in the home. 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. It is a nice blend of Internet content, live television, apps, a multi-tuner DVR and on-demand programming, in one of the cleanest user interfaces that you’ll find from a cable company. The X1 experience is at the opposite end of the spectrum from the new Google Chromecast, which GeekWire columnist Frank Catalano wrote about this week. Why can’t we just get everything on-demand from the cloud — whatever we want, whenever we want it? On last week’s show, my colleague John Cook rolled his eyes when I explained the process of searching using the alphanumeric keypad. Another feature request here: It would be great to be able to use the hardware volume controls on the phone itself to control the TV volume.
It’s actually only a little more than a foot wide, and probably smaller than other cable boxes that you’ve had. Xfinity Home can further reduce their energy usage and save more money on utility bills year round. It shows that the future of what’s to come in home automation is limited only by our imagination.
A "starter pack" of Xfinity Home Control monitoring equipment is available starting at $99.95. This is part of Comcast’s broader strategy to create the foundation for customers to power their Internet-connected devices and experiences, in and out of the home.
It displays alerts, appointments, texts, emails, voicemails and DVR data; and aggregates updates from social media, news, and local information sources for updates on traffic and weather. Once signed-in, customers may begin browsing their full channel lineup in the Guide or scan available recordings for download in the Saved menu. 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. If the Chromecast is a Smart Car, the X1 is an Escalade, as I mentioned when we discussed this topic on last week’s GeekWire radio show. The whole notion of recording a show and saving it to a local hard drive starts to feel a little odd when you can see on-demand and DVR recordings of the same episode side-by-side in unified menu.
Through a collaboration with EcoFactor, a leading provider of energy management solutions, Xfinity Home will be able to adapt home temperature settings automatically, taking into account personal habits and preferences, as well as unique heating and cooling patterns.
Over time, the system adapts to user inputs to help reduce energy while keeping the home comfortable. By combining WiFi speeds with the latest Xfinity apps, home control technology and other Internet-enabled services, Comcast is giving customers new, simple and convenient ways to take advantage of the speed delivered on its broadband and WiFi networks.
On laptops and computers, customers can sign-in through the Xfinity TV site to access their X1 guide and DVR recordings.
Both serve a purpose and could work well depending on exactly what you’re looking for in a television experience.
But the reality, with most searches, is that you only need to hit a few keys before the program you’re looking for shows up at the top of the list, to select easily.
Unless you’re adding services such as DVR functionality to your bill (as I will be) there’s no extra charge for the X1 beyond an installation fee of approximately $90 for the triple-play setup.
