Comcast, the largest U.S. cable operator will will own Fancast.com and also point fans to where they can watch any show, be it on television
, On Demand, DVD
or in theaters.
Comcast plans to move some Fancast features to the set-top box so a TV viewer could, for instance, check up-to-date information about an actor in a show they are watching.
A proposed feature would allow users to program their digital video recorders
later this year.
