How Caller ID appears on TV screen

How Caller ID appears on TV screen

I have the comcast/Xfinity cable bundle (TV, Internet,and voice) service.  My question regards  my  Caller ID as shown on the TV:.   I am on a Verizon cell phone family plan with 3 others.  When I call my home landline from my cell, the CID that shows up on my home TV is the main cell phone account holders name but with my cell #.  This also happens on other TV's at other locations with Comcast TV service.  However,  If I call any  landline or cell phone  with my cell phone...my name and number appear on that phone CID.  Question is "Why does the main Verizon account holders name appear with my  cell # on the TV (Comcast cable service)" ?   I should mention I am also listed as an account holder on this plan.  I have been around the horn with Verizon and nothing they suggest seems to correct the probelm.  If you understand the above  problem...any thoughts  as to how to resolve it???
