Comcast XFINITY app for BlackBerry allows you to manage your programming on the go
For those Comcast customers sporting a BlackBerry smartphone, they can download the app right now for free – though, it has to be a compatible device running OS 4.6 and higher. Meanwhile, it’s mentioned that the following devices are currently supported: Curve 8900, 8520, 8530, 9300 and 9330; Bold 9000, 9650 and 9700; Storm and Storm 2; Tour; Torch.
Rather than being glued to the tube at home, you can use the app to access and execute a ton of neat functions – all in the palm of your hands! Specifically, some of the app’s features include:
- Schedule recordings on your DVR so you never miss a show
- View TV Listings, filter by Movies / Sports / HD / Kids, set up reminders that are integrated with your Blackberry Calendar
- Forward home phone calls to your Blackberry or any other number
- Sync your XFINITY Address Book with your Blackberry contacts
- View On Demand movie trailers

Its nice to see other systems being supported. Everyone seems to forget Blackberry when making apps for Android or IOS. Its cool that I can use this on my phone but I wish it did more. VOD movie trailers? Wheres the full streaming? I have the DISH Remote Access app, free from DISH Network, my TV provider and employer. With it I can stream all of my TV channels live to my phone. Not only can I view the TV schedule and set DVR recordings, but I can watch those recordings streamed to my phone too. Comcast gave some streaming to IOS and Android but they didn’t show the same love for Blackberry users. That’s ok, DISH made streaming available to me, I will stick with them.
