Comcast has integrated its X1 platform with IFTTT


Users of Comcast’s Xfinity X1 set-top box can now make use of IFTTT to receive messages on their TV or even change the channel upon a certain event. Comcast’s Chief Business Development Officer Sam Schwartz unveiled the integration at a press event in San Francisco Wednesday, where he showed off a recipe that linked a WeMo switch to the X1, allowing users to change the channel whenever the switch was used. Other possible integrations include messaging on the TV, or the ability to switch to a sports channel whenever a viewer’s favorite team is in the news.

Please tell me that IFTTT is working with Comcast on an Xfinity Home Channel! I would very much like to see this extended- there are so many things that I want to do with IFTTT and Xfinity home that you can already do with Wemo!

Can you make a formula to automatically change to the Comcast Shopping Network when your Netflix is stuck buffering through your Comcast throttled internet?
