Hi... when will xfinity/comcast introduce wireless cable boxes? When I had my x1 system installed, it took >8hrs across two days, and required a good deal of my attention and interraction with the tech during installation. It was tedious... and surely expensive for comcast. The breakeven date for my subscription must be years out!
While I know Comcast ran an ad campaign lampooning AT&T Uverse's wireless cable box launch, i have to say, it's a useful innovation and competitive advantage for them. In addition to the much quicker/economical installation, it allows me as an end user to easily move my TV and associated cable box from room to room, or even outdoors, which I have wanted to do on many occasions. For that latter use case, in order to accomodate, I would need to get an entirely new cable base unit installed on the outside of the house to facilitate that one addition cable run to the outdoor location... that I probably would only use 5x per year. But when I want it... I want it.
So that's it... many good reason here, but primarily 1. reduced installation cost, 2. increased customer satisfaction with the installation process, 3. ability to customers to move devices in an "untethered" manner throughout their home/property.
Thanks for listening!
