The way television is delivered to customers is slowly becoming archaic. Previously, in my old apartment, I was forced to use a small cable company to deliver my television entertainment. The company provided high definition but that was about all of the extra features it offered. They did not provide any extra features like viewing content on my iPhone or scheduling digital video recordings(DVR) through a website. Recently I moved into a house and I decided to try satellite. After comparing services I decided on Dish Network and their Hopper DVR

While Dish Network may not be perfect, I have been happy with their service and the Dish Anywhere app. It allows Dish Network subscribers to view featured content, browse the guide to see what is on, schedule and maintain DVR events, and also view live TV and DVR events with the optional Sling Adapter.

How do you interact with your TV? Wouldn’t it be nice to touch it and feel it. Wouldn’t it be nice to pan through the TV listings using only the swipe of a finger. Wouldn’t it be nice to control your TV from the same device that you use to browse the web or check email from. Well with the help of the new Xfinity TV app from Comcast, you can do all that and more.

The Xfinity TV app makes it easy to interact with your Comcast cable boxes (check your box eligibility). Scroll through a listing of available shows and with the push of a button you can wirelessly change the channel from your iPhone or iPad. No more fighting over the remote or wondering where you had it last. Sort, Browse, Watch, and more.
