Comcast to launch Xfinity Stream app

ComcastUS cable giant Comcast is due to launch its new Xfinity Stream app to Xfinity TV customers at the end of the month.

The Xfinity app update is designed to let Xfinity customers watch their entire TV line-up on phones, tablets and laptops in the home, and when they’re on-the-go.

Users will also be able to tune-in to more than 200 live channels, access and program their DVR and watch 40,000 on demand titles via the app.

“We’re focused on creating the best entertainment experiences across platforms and continuing to give Xfinity TV customers more choice in how, when and where they access their content,” said Comcast Cable’s executive vice-president and general manager, video and entertainment services, Matt Strauss.

“With the Xfinity Stream app, we are giving customers access to the best content in and out of the home with a growing list of advanced features and capabilities that make the mobile experience nearly identical to the cable experience they enjoy at home.”

Xfinity TV customers will be able to download the Xfinity Stream app for free from February 28. The app will be available on iOS and Android and customers that already have the latest version of the Xfinity TV app installed will see it update to Xfinity Stream via an app update on that date.
