Comcast's new Xfinity app to bring 3,000+ hours of content to Apple iPad and Android tablets
With content providers like Netflix and Blockbuster getting paid to stream movies and television shows to mobile devices, Comcast has announced that it will join the club. The cable firm's Xfinity app for the Apple iPad and Android tablets will provide more than 3,000 hours of content via a data connection anywhere.

Comcast CEO Brian Roberts said, "Comcast has a series of upcoming online enhancements and app releases that are part of a much larger effort to reinvent how customers interact with their entertainment on TV, online and on mobile devices." No word on how much the app will cost or when it will be released. Also unknown now is what type of special Comcast or Xfinity monthly plan you might need to receive the streaming programs.

They should try getting it to work first! I've had it since the very first day and Comcast customer service nor their techs can get it to work at all.

That's not good to hear that ya'll seem to be having problems. When I heard that Comcast was going to join the "TV Everywhere" club I was excited to see what they were gonna bring to the table. From what I've been hearing the only thing I find a little exciting would be their on-demand content that you can stream through your Ipad. It's not really fair that they are only going to be offering live TV feeds to it at home. Kinda defeats the purpose. Being a DISH Network employee and subscriber, I have the sling adapter. I get live TV everywhere on my phone, even recorded programming if I want. So anywhere I have signal on my phone, I've got my fav show! Haven't had a problem with it at all!
