Comcast Pushes Cable TV Technology Ahead of the Others

If you haven't been paying attention to TV technology lately, you've been missing some pretty impressive developments and the cable TV provider, Comcast, can bring them all to you. One of the most radical advances in TV technology in the past couple of decades- but the one that probably gets the least recognition- is digital TV.

With digital TV, the picture and sound of TV are converted into ones and zeros that can be transmitted over a wire or over the air and then converted back into the TV picture and sound by a digital TV tuner.

The fact that the signal is all digital makes it very easy for the tuner to separate interference from the actual television signal, and that in turn allows the tuner to clean up the signal and produce a very crisp, clear, and clean picture as well as sound that can then be delivered through the TV.

Another benefit of digital TV that Comcast takes advantage of it the fact that when TV programming is delivered digitally, a variety of other information can also be delivered along with it. This information, which is commonly called meta-information, can be used to assemble an on screen program guide and can be used by parental control software to determine whether or not the program is suitable for a household's children. Both of these are features that Comcast offers to its subscribers.

The on screen program guide is sure to save time and energy while avoiding the frustration of clicking up and down the channels in order to see what's on and decide what to watch. (This can be a real life saver when you look at the fact that Comcast can offer over two hundred and seventy five channels in its largest programming package.) Comcast's parental control software is just as valuable because it allows you to make the rules about what your children can and can't watch. Once you've made those rules, the software will then look at the meta-information of the programs that are about to come on the screen and then block any of them that break your rules. This provides real peace of mind for parents everywhere, and best of all it works with teenagers as well as with toddlers.

Of course Comcast also provides a lot of other types of advanced technology with its digital cable TV service. For example, it also provides HDTV. HDTV is a high resolution, wide screen version of digital TV that was designed to provide a cost effective way to get the same quality viewing experience that you'd get in a real movie theater.

While HDTV was designed to show movies, it's also very good for enjoying everything from news programming and programming about personal hobbies to sports and educational programming.

Video on demand is another cutting edge technology that Comcast can provide for you. Video on demand will allow you to enjoy things like recently released movies through the ON DEMAND pay per view service and special content from some of the best sources of programming through a special subscription service called Premium On Demand.

These are just a few of the ways that Comcast provides you with lots of the latest technology.

High Speed Internet Options From Comcast

One of the reasons that Comcast offers high speed Internet access along with its other services is because high speed Internet has almost become a necessity these days. Anyone who has used a dial up Internet service lately with any frequency knows that there are just a lot of places on the World Wide Web that you just can't go with that slow of a connection. For example, just about any web page that takes advantage of Flash media will be really slow to load, and some of them won't load at all.

Dial up Internet connections will also slow down almost to a standstill for no particular reason and will often simply stop in the middle of downloading a large file. Of course DSL is much faster than dial up, but it's still not an option for anyone who wants to take advantage of the rich variety of media that's offered by the World Wide Web these days.

For all of these reasons, a true broad band high speed Internet connection, like what Comcast offers, has become a virtual necessity. Comcast's broad band Internet service offers download speeds that can reach as high as eight megabytes per second. That's up to six times faster than DSL and one hundred times faster than dial up. With that kind of speed, it's easy to take advantage of lots of the multimedia experiences that the Internet has to offer. For example, there are now a variety of massive multiplayer online video games that encompass entire virtual worlds. One example of this is Second Life. Second life allows players to interact with each other through virtual avatars.

It's also possible to do business within Second Life and some companies are even holding board meetings in Second Life, and Reuters news agency even maintains a virtual office within the online video game in order to report on things that are happening there.

World of WarCraft is another virtual world where it's possible to built things like castles and make things like swords both of which can be sold to other people in the real world for real money. Comcast's high speed broad band Internet connection will allow you to take part in these two virtual worlds and more.

There are also a lot of different types of media to take advantage of online. In fact, there's so much video, music, and even literature online that you may never need to go to the library or the video store again when you have the bandwidth to take advantage of downloading all of those things. For example, you can download a huge variety of music and an ever growing variety of video from online stores like iTunes. If you ever do need a solid CD or a DVD or a paper based book, you can buy it online and online shopping is a lot more convenient with a high speed Internet connection.

Of course it's common sense that when you have access to the Internet, the malicious computer programs on the Internet and the people who create them have greater access to you. Because of that, it's a good thing that Comcast provides a lot of different levels of protection for you. This protection ranges from free anti virus software and regular updates for that software to optional firewalls.

High speed Internet access is definitely a good thing no matter where you get it, but with a variety of extra features to increase the value of the service, Comcast provides some very good options.
