Comcast Trademarks 'Download2Go' For Video Service
Could be Sign of Looming Verizon Joint Product
by Karl Bode 08:35AM Wednesday Oct 17 2012 Tipped by Russ6 See Profile
Comcast has filed a new trademark for DOWNLOAD2GO ahead of what appears to be a new mobile video offering by the cable giant. According to Fierce Cable, the patent application covers "computer application software for mobile devices, mobile phones, smart phones, cell phones, tablet computers, handheld computers, computers and/or other portable computer devices, namely, software for downloading and viewing audio-video content on such a device." Comcast's co-marketing deal with Verizon so far only covers giving bundle users prepaid gift cards, though both companies have promised they're working on tech that allows users to share cable content between their fixed line and wireless services. Many cable operators are also planning on services that allow place-shifting of content from DVRs to local devices.

Download content over in-home WiFi saves cellphone data

By downloading content to your cellphone over in-home WiFi instead of over 3g/4g cell service saves customers from using up cell service data caps. Comcast gets to get fees for on-demand content transferred to mobile devices. I am not sure what Verizon gets out of the deal.

This hasn't really been very exciting in the past, and I doubt it will be any better in the future. The whole point of cable is crystal clear HD you can watch on a nice big screen with surround sound. Not crappy mobile screens.
