Comcast Cares Day: Volunteers needed!

2015 Cares Day PRINT

If you’re looking for the perfect opportunity to get involved and give back to your community, consider participating in Comcast Cares Day. Comcast Cares Day is the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort with employees, families, friends, and local partners all joining together to clean, rejuvenate, and beautify the communities where we work and live. This year Comcast Cares Day will take place on Saturday, April 25th.

In 2014, a record 95,000 volunteers contributed 570,000 hours to improve more than 820 parks, schools, beaches, senior centers and other vital community sites around the world. 8,558 of these volunteers came from Utah and in 2015 we want to continue our tradition of making a big impact.

The day will begin with sign-in and breakfast at 7:00 AM and conclude with lunch by 1:00 PM.

Celebrating Black History Month

black history month

During the month of February, Xfinity will offer a collection of Black History Month programming with a special focus on content featuring African American icons who have achieved historic “firsts” in the African American community, including films like: Venus and Serena, The Great Debaters, Pride, TheMedgar Evers Story, Bird, I Am Ali and Malcom X. Other features include TV specials like The Black List on TVOne and Angelique Kidjo on Al Jazeera America.

All programming will be featured on Xfinity’s Celebrate Black TV website and on Xfinity On Demand, with select content available on mobile devices via the Xfinity TV Go app.

This month, Comcast is also expanding “His Dream Our Stories” — which was launched in 2013 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom – with new interviews and an extended collection of videos that will feature key moments in civil rights history. In partnership with the Equal Justice Initiative, Comcast will feature “Moments in Civil Rights History with D’Army Bailey” — a collection of historical events in the civil rights movement. Both sites will be updated weekly with original videos hosted by legendary activist Judge D’Army Bailey, covering key civil rights milestones and events.  Users will also have the ability to directly upload their own personal stories of activism, memories from marches and demonstrations, or similar stories from their loved ones.

Comcast has had a longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion since its founding more than 50 years ago and focuses its efforts in five key areas: diversity in governance, attracting and retaining a multicultural workforce, developing a diverse supply chain, offering a wide selection of multicultural programming, and community investment in national, regional and local diverse organizations.

Hold music can be a thing of the past

No one wants to wait on hold if they can avoid it, so we are giving customers the option to skip holding altogether through a new Xfinity My Account App feature.

With the new feature, customers can schedule a time for a Comcast representative to call them to resolve whatever issue they may be dealing with – no waiting.

Here’s how it works.  One of the main features of the My Account app is the interactive troubleshooting guide, which takes customers through steps designed to help them fix whatever issue they are having themselves.  If your issue is still not resolved after going through the troubleshooting steps, there is an option to call us.  But here’s where it gets good.  If you don’t want to call us, we will call you.  Simply enter in your phone number, select the time you want us to call you (call times are available in 15 minute windows), and you’re all set.

Not a phone person?  There is an option in the app to chat with an expert on Twitter as well.  You can even snap a photo of your screen and Tweet it to us, so we can see exactly what you’re seeing.

These features are available to all customers today on the My Account app.  But, don’t think this means we’ve stopped working to make the phone experience the best it can be. It’s the opposite. We’re working hard to make sure we are serving our customers as quickly as possible across all our channels.
