Comcast Launches X1 DVR Interface, Tips Next-Gen 'Dayview' | News & Opinion | PCMag.com (click for full article) "Comcast said Monday that it will soon launch its X1 cloud-based DVR user interface in Boston for Xfinity, and tipped its next-generation "Dayview" UI, which will provide a Metro-inspired look at all of the services Comcast offers. Monday's announcement gives more details on the X1 service that Comcast has been promising Xfinity customers for months. The new UI will only be available to Triple Play customers - those who get voice, TV, and Internet. The X1 interface will roll out to other markets later this year, Comcast said. Comcast will also integrate X1 into an iPhone app, it said, which will replace the slow virtual keyboard Comcast currently integrates into its current DVR UI. Comcast designed the X1 UI to be a cleaner, more organized look at the content it offers. It also takes advantage of the cloud, providing up-to-date information to its subscribers and recommending shows it thinks the viewer would like to watch. For example, the X1 UI integrates traffic and sports applications: the first provides live traffic information, apparently sourced in part from Google; while the sports app places related information, including live scores, in a box to the right of the action. Other integrated apps include Pandora, while Facebook and Twitter support have also been included."
