Comcast Announces iPad Remote App
Comcast is showing off a new app at The Cable Show 2010. The app turns the Apple iPad into a web-based TV remote.
Comcast calls the app Xfinity Remote, which allows users to search for television shows, movies and videos on demand. Users can also change channels on a cable box and program DVR recordings remotely.
I find this app interesting since the living room is where the iPad is used the most. I expect to see more cable companies with similar iPad apps in the near future.
The app is not available yet. There’s no word on when the app will launch or its price. Just a look at what is to come.
