Comcast Launching New XFINITY Stream App to Access 200+ Channels, DVR In/Out of Home

Phillip Dampier February 14, 2017 Comcast/Xfinity, Consumer News, Online Video No Comments

Comcast today announced it is launching a new streaming television app for XFINITY TV customers allowing access to more than 200 live channels and DVR recordings on-the-go at no extra charge.

XFINITY Stream works with phones, tablets, and laptops in or out of the home, and will replace the XFINITY TV app when released for iOS and Android devices on Feb. 28.

The app will expand the ability of Comcast customers to watch their television lineup and DVR recordings anywhere there is a broadband connection. Many cable companies do not allow customers to watch DVR-recorded shows on portable devices and only have a small selection of cable channels available for viewing outside of the home.

“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,” said Matt Strauss, executive vice president and general manager of Comcast Cable’s video and entertainment services.

Among the improvements claimed by Comcast:

  • availability of a Spanish language guide
  • X1-like experience
  • favorite channel filtering
  • 50 Music Choice music channels
  • Common Sense Media reviews and ratings
  • 40,000 on demand movies and TV shows
  • full access to your XFINITY DVR and its recordings
  • ability to download “thousands” of shows for offline viewing

Customers who have already installed the latest version of the XFINITY TV app on their devices need not do anything. The app will transition through an app update on Feb 28.
