I agree that Comcast's Xfinity app is a good move, but that's still pretty much a feature today. It will get really interesting when Comcast lets you watch your home content on-the-go.


Phil, I'm impressed you filmed that "Taxi Cab Confessions" style. You are this archetypal on-the-go customer, I see.

Yes, Comcast are certainly taking baby steps with Xfinity. The challenge now will be to do what you said -- give consumers mobile access to content they care about -- and to provide apps that will enhance the home product and add value to that.


Wish it had been more Cash Cab and less Taxi Cab Confessions.
