Comcast Brings AnyRoom On Demand to New England28 May, 2008 By: John Latchem
New England customers of Comcast's cable service now have access to AnyRoom On Demand, a feature that lets viewers start an On Demand program on one TV and continue to view it on any other TV with a cable box in the same home. No changes to the service plan or equipment were required for AnyRoom, which is offered at no additional fee.
The service works by sharing the saved programs list with all digital cable boxes within the household registered to the same account. This list can be accessed from any TV with a converter box. All On Demand programs 19 minutes or longer are included. Any free, premium channel or paid program can be watched on any TV during the rental period.
Comcast's On Demand library includes more than 10,000 titles every month.
