Prepare to say goodbye to the Xfinity TV app as you knew it. Don’t worry, you should like the change. Comcast has unveiled a replacement mobile app, Xfinity Stream, and this one promises to cover just about everything you can do with your TV subscription.
See, you like it already, don’t you? I know you do.
With this new app you’ll have in-home control, out-of-home live streaming and remote DVR access, and you’ll also get some of the features you’re used to from your X1 set-top box, like music channels, favorite channel filtering, Common Sense content ratings and a Spanish guide. So what this means is that you won’t have to stay in the living room to get some of the nicer perks. Pretty sweet. The app will arrive on Android and iOS on February 28th.
The cable giant also says that Xfinity Stream will be the home for viewing its Stream TV service. It will have a rebranding however. After all, it is a good idea to change the name to avoid confusion when the app launches nationwide later this year in 2017.
