Text Messages to phone appear on tv?

My son signed up for the comcast triple play, and he did say that when I call his home number the info appears on his tv, my question is, could I txt message his home number and would that appear on his tv screen as well?  Thanks!

No, it is ony simple caller ID with name that shows up.  Nothing more.

Re: Text Messages to phone appear on tv?

I'm not sure if it's technically feasible, since text messages (technically known as SMS - Short Message Service) are part of the cellphone protocols, not more general telephony. But it seems like it would be a nice feature, you should suggest it in the Comcast feedback link.
