using voice commands to change channels, search for shows or favorite actors,
get recommendations, and more

·  Embedded Zigbee RF4CE for low power use and reliable
performance across all XFINITY services

codes and software upgrades

to Comcast for many years,” said Jonathan Palmatier, V.P. of Product
Development at Comcast.  “We feel
confident that our continued relationship, backed by UEI’s expertise in
advanced control technology and quality manufacturing will continue to meet our
high expectations.”

“Comcast has always been a
leader in implementing advanced technology that will improve the consumer
