The holiday season is both joyful and jam-packed. To help you get through, we’ve compiled a checklist of tips to make your technology run seamlessly this holiday season.

  • Prepare for Internet-savvy guests

Are you hosting this holiday? Before guests arrive, customize your WiFi name and password to something easy to remember. This way your guests can quickly connect to your home WiFi without you having to search for the random piece of paper with your lengthy network information.

  • Stay connected at the mall, airport, and everywhere in-between

With Xfinity WiFi, you can update your gift list and check your fantasy football standings from anywhere, anytime. Simply connect to one of the 274,000 Xfinity Hotspots available across Utah.

  • Guard against package theft

One in four people are victims of package theft, and with more than 750 million packages delivered between Thanksgiving and January 1, there’s a lot of opportunity for doorstep delinquency. Our 24/7 video recording service connected to Xfinity Home uses AI technology to zoom in on the activity taking place on your porch and around your home and will send you real-time package alerts.

  • Keep kids’ screen time in check while school is out

No homework means more free time, with Xfinity xFi, parents can assign a time allowance for WiFi usage to their kids’ devices. This will help ensure your youngest family members don’t spend the entire holiday break screen-bound.

  • Give yourself the gift of extra bandwidth

Planning for multiple connected guests at your house? There are easy-to-plug-in tools that extend WiFi connectivity to the hard-to-reach corners of your home. These add-ons are especially helpful in houses where structural features can block coverage.

  • Offer the best holiday movies and entertainment to guests

When you and your guests want to relax on the couch, browse the entertainment options available with Xfinity X1. Discover new favorites with our curated recommendations, or sit back with an old classic. The Smart Search feature lets you search live TV, On Demand, and your DVR library for a specific actor, genre, or title that you’re looking for. Make sure to check out the latest X1 voice commands! You can also filter your X1 Guide by your favorite channels.

Make your lists (and check ours twice) — and you’ve got your tech bases covered through the new year.

From our Comcast family to yours, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
