Comcast/Xfinity TV Player App Arrives On Android, Good For Any Device Running Android 2.3 Or Above

Let’s take a trip back in time to January 2011 and a promise from Comcast/Xfinity that Android tablet owners would be able to stream on-demand content to their tablets sometime in 2011. Fast forward to 2012 and while Comcast may have been a little overzealous in their timeframe, they did go a little further than their original promise by bringing on-demand content to any Android running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and above.

Watch thousands of XFINITY ON Demand™ TV Shows & Movies anytime, anywhere.

Download the XFINITY™ TV Player and put a world of entertainment in the palm of your hand. Watch your favorite XFINITY On Demand TV™ shows and movies on your Android phone or tablet – wherever you go.

    Will Charter be doing the same anytime soon?

    See this is what rises every ones usage on data until they reach their cap. I am all for the smart phone or tablet or whatever being used like it was meant to. But sure as hell people always say ” the caps are for the data abusers” I say no it is not. We should not have any caps. This particular service is one of the reasons we should not. I have always said why do the cell companies sell smart phones or tablets that will do all this stuff and when people do use them like they should they get penalized for it.

      If you stream any video you should always use WiFi. Having said that Comcast missed the boat with me on this feature and I’m sure there will be plenty of commercials. Due to the lack of competition in my area, my Comcast bill was getting outrageous. I downgraded to the most basic of cable just to keep my internet connection “cheap” and bought a Roku2 XS. I save about $90 dollars a month and can stream to my phone just as much content through Netflix, Crunchyroll, etc. etc.

    Works when it wants to…. About 75% of the time it gets stuck on Loading

    The app itself is great and its working with no problems but the content SUCKS!

    No House, CSI, Cleveland Show, Person of Interest, no Awake…

    What’s the point then?

    • now_onTMO

      i think because of licensing issues..

      • MarcusDW

        That’s my exact thought.

        They have a chance to force us to watch commercials and they are not taking advantage of it.

  • now_onTMO
