Comcast has revealed that it has launched its cloud DVR service, which provides users with the ability to stream television recordings to PCs, Macs, Android devices, and iOS devices, in San Francisco and Houston. The two cities join Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C, which have had access to Comcast cloud DVR since earlier this year. The service takes its aim at competing companies, delivering content to devices located within and outside of the home where DVR service is active. While the cloud DVR service is currently tied to a traditional X1 DVR box, recordings are duplicated in the cloud for viewing. DVR boxes that simply stream content and come without a hard drive should be released in the near future, providing additional functionality to cloud DVR by Comcast.

X1 users who currently have an X1 box will need to request cloud DVR functionality. Comcast expects all X1 users to receive cloud DVR by the end of the year.
