Posted August 22, 2012 6:14 pm | Filed under Local News

Comporium Cable customers will soon have a new option for whole-home DVR service.

The Rock Hill-based company announced Wednesday the launch of the whole-home DVR system dubbed “Moxi,” a system Comporium’s Executive Vice President and COO Glenn McFadden says comes with many new advanced features.

“Moxi will transform how our customers enjoy our digital video service,” said McFadden. “In addition to adding the flexibility of watching any recorded show in any room that they choose; and at 500GB, the Moxi system has more than three times the storage capacity for recorded shows than the older set-top boxes.”

Comporium tested the Moxi system for several months for several months with select customers. The company said that feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

“Very few wanted to turn their Moxi back in and return to using traditional DVRs,” McFadden added. “Many enjoyed the fact that it could save up to 75 hours of their favorite shows in HD. Some said they liked the Emmy award-winning ARRIS interactive guide to navigate their video choices.”

Among the advanced features:

  • Connect up to six TVs – record or watch up to six shows in any room of the house.
  • Expanded Menu – slide side-to-side through the expanded menu, then click to expand the options within a menu category; go back to the traditional grid with one quick click.
  • Organized categories – Moxi allows organization of current and upcoming programs by category and more.
  • Whole Home DVR – Watch any recorded show on any TV, regardless of where you clicked record.
  • Easy searching – Use the remote to type in the first few letters of a show or movie, then see the options available.
  • Computer to Big Screen – View personal media on the big screen by connecting a computer to the Moxi home network wirelessly. Moxi provides a built-in wireless Internet connection; no extra router needed.

Comporium officials say the Moxi service is now available, while plans are in the works to roll out a video on demand service by the end of the year.
