Comcast Launching Android DVR/Home Phone Application

Comcast has announced that they will soon be bringing their DVR app (now available on iOS) to Android. The  app will be extremely full featured and offer you full control over your DVR (being able to set up recordings, look at your list of recorded content, and manage season passes on the go).  In addition to this,  you will also be able to hook your mobile phone up to their direct phone service. Awesome!

With having the ability to hook in directly to their phone service, users will be able to have have calls routed from your home phone to your cell phone, so you won’t miss a beat. According to the Comcast site, “Comcast’s solution will make it a quick and painless process for anyone subscribed to their service. It’ll also take advantage of Android’s notification features to send you push notifications whenever someone leaves a voicemail on your home phone.” As someone who has Comcast, I have to say I am very excited.

Overall, it’s nice to see Comcast embracing Android. Anyone else out there looking forward to this?
