Only if you add third party equipment like a Slingbox.

Re: watching dvr on computer

It has been more than a year since this was first posted and your teams were working on resolving the issue, my son would like to watch dvr recordings from his laptop while he is away at college. I hope we will soon be able to have this service or I will have to switch to another company for my service.

Re: watching dvr on computer

Hi Joe,

  I am trying to watch my DVR on my computer. I see that last year you said that was not possible.

It appears as if it is still not. I can use a SlingBox unit to do so but is there a reason why Comcast cannot provide this ability without the SlingBox? I ask because it is obviously possible as Slingbox can do it, but it would be so much easier if I could use the Comcast cable directly. And Direct TV can do it so I am thinking of changing my service, tho I would prefer not as I like my bundled service.

Sincerely,

Nelson13
