Posted by at 5:22 pm on March 3, 2010

Massive communications conglomerate Comcast has released a new version of the Comcast Mobile application, which now includes a remote DVR programming service (rDVR) that is being rolled out across the country. With the Comcast Mobile app 2.0, you might never have to miss your favorite show or movie because you can program their DVR at any time, from anywhere.

“The Comcast Mobile app is part of our vision to enable customers to enjoy their video, voice and data services wherever and from whatever device. Now our customers can easily program their DVR no matter their location, making our mobile app a -˜one stop shop’ for our services while on the go,” said Cathy Avgiris, SVP and General Manager, Communications and Data Services, Comcast. “In this age of anywhere, anytime communication, people want to stay connected, and our mobile app allows them to do that.”

The app is designed to let you utilize its new fully-featured TV program guide, which provides local TV listings line-up, to record programming at home. The app also allows you to:

  • Search for a particular program and schedule recordings.
  • View a list of scheduled recordings, cancel and create new recordings and switch between multiple DVRs.
  • Use the “Quick Record” feature to instantly record with a single tap.
  • Sort TV listings by category, such as Movies, Sports, Kids and HD.

Additional new features of the enhanced Comcast Mobile app include push notification alerts, which automatically indicate new emails and voice mails have arrived, as well as TV show reminders. You can also now forward pictures and voice mails as an attachment, mark unwanted emails as spam and access external email accounts (POP/IMAP) right from their mobile device.

The mobile rDVR feature is an extension of the existing online service, known as myDVR Manager, which allows customers with a Comcast DVR and high-speed Internet to remotely schedule and manage their recordings online using Comcast TV Listings. Comcast’s rDVR service is currently rolling out across the country as part of Comcast’s new Program Guide, now available in 3.1 million homes and in select markets within PA, DE, VA, MD, MA, AR, TN, AZ and UT. Additional markets will be introduced throughout the year. Customers can access myDVR Manager online by going to
