Comcast releases Xfinity TV Player, finally allows you to stream content


Comcast subscribers will be glad to learn that the cable company has just released a new app – Xfinity TV Player. This applications allows subscribers to watch on-demand content like HBO and Showtime shows. One can also use Comcast’s video streaming service Streampix, if subscribed.

It is nice to see this coming to Android after a very long wait. Try not to confuse it with the other Comcast app, though. The other one works as a remote for your DVR and is called Xfinity TV, just one word short of the other app.

Comcast subscribers that want to get their video-watching on can simply download the app from the Google Play Store now. It is compatible with all devices running Android 2.3 or higher, so the vast majority of us will be covered.
