Extreme Makeover: Cable-Interface Edition

Comcast to unveil new layout for Xfinity cable

Right after announcing plans to bring Skype to your TV, Brian Roberts is ready to show off the cable conglomerate’s “next generation Xfinity TV experience.” Comcast is teaming up with leading technology companies to add some versatility to the cable package. The new interface, which is built on the premise of making your cable experience more personal, will include faster speeds and a new “MyTV” feature to act as a hub for your personal tastes, preferences and viewing habits. Facebook and traffic feeds will also be featured with the new layout through “interactive apps.” The Scoop is wondering what this means for last month’s incorrect billing statement. Is there an app for that? [Business Wire]
