COMCAST4U Simplifies Service

comcastcallme.jpg

COMCAST4U is now accessible to some Comcast subscribers. You simply text a command to 'Comcast4U' or '266278' followed by 'NOW' to get TV, VOD, Sports and Primetime listings. There is also access to account info including 'CALLME' for customer support. Best of all, aside from it being free, is that it works with most phones and providers. The catch? It is only available in Philly and its suburbs, Jersey and Delaware until mid-2011.
