Both the on screen program guide and the parental controls are software that will help you manage all of the programming coming into your home. The on screen program guide will allow you to read up on all of the different TV shows that are being shown on all of the different channels that are coming into your home. You'll be able to see what each program is about, when it was made, and who stars in it. You'll even be able to get this information in advance of when each programs starts so you don't have to miss any of the program while you're making your decision. It's a much better way to see what's on TV and decide what you want to watch than haphazard channel surfing. Parental Controls will allow you to make rules about what your children can watch and then get your TV receiver to enforce those rules. That way you can let your kids watch TV even when you're not around and have confidence that they won't get into anything that you don't approve of.
These features are included in all of Comcast's programming packages, but the need to keep track of what's available to watch- as well as what your kids can and can't get into when you aren't looking- is a valuable option to have if you get some of the larger programming packages. For example, Comcast's Platinum Plus package has over two hundred and seventy five channels! You can also opt for the Gold Plus package, the Silver Plus package, the Digital Classic Package, or the Enhanced Cable package. Enhanced Cable is a very affordable programming package, but it's by no means bare bones. In fact, the Enhanced cable package has all of the basic features that's available on each of Comcast's programming packages. That's because, you'll get a digital TV receiver, all of your local channels, access to Comcast's On Demand pay per view service, and forty five channels of digital music. On Demand takes advantage of video on demand technology to bring you all of the latest movies when you want them and on your own terms.
With all of these features, it's pretty obvious that Comcast is a serious contender for the business of the modern TV viewer.
