Don't really care what they say, it's just trying to hide all the negativity that has become attached to the "COMCAST" branding.... Thanks entirely to their seemingly tireless efforts to earn it.

I rose by any other name.....

From what I have heard about Comcast the rose would be something that does not smell as sweet...

Anyway maybe the name change will come with better service for those stuck with it.... (I know this is just wishful thinking for my internet brethren.)

No, the name change means a bunch of new decals for their subcontractors to plaster on their truck and new stationary for their customer complaint center. Those costs will of course be passed along to the fertilizer customers..... I mean XFINIKY

here's a good idea....get a satellite, i have directTV, order extra receivers for "other rooms" (free at install, extra cost to upgrade). Get a few friends to use those "other room" receivers in their house/appt (extra old dishes are very easy to acquire i got my 2 free, 1 is HD) they can't tell if the receivers are on one or 3 dishes as long as you don't plug in a phone or cat5/6 into the receivers.... split the bill, win win.... 200+ channels with lots of HD for 30 bucks a mth each

Perhaps it is an attempt to fool the FTC into allowing the takeover of NBC.

FTC: "Allow Comcast to absorb NBC? Never! But this Xfinity company... now that's a whole different story. We certainly haven't heard years of complaints about them."

Most rebranding is done to mask the fact that the product is itself is bad or is not evolving.

For example:

Phillip Morris->Altria
Nvidia's 8800GT->9800GT->GTS240 (or whatever it is now)

Phillip Morris->Altria

Is an incredibly well ran company from a business perspective.

My reaction..... [insert sound of crickets]. Seriously, if they think rebranding themselves will somehow erase that fact that their technology sucks harder every day and their customer service is a &*$%ing joke, then they are more delusional that we all suspected. I agree that now, instead of just hating Comcast, I can hate Comcast and Xfinity as well! Yay for me!

If it weren't for the continual degradation of my HDTV service in Comcast's efforts to keep up the the HD channel count of Directv and Dish, I would not have switched to Directv. They have done NOTHING to make me consider going back and I doubt they EVER will. : )
