Comcast has a new Xfinity app, but it’s still not on set-top boxes
Successor to the Xfinity TV app brings Xfinity X1 functionality, including a Spanish guide, filtering, music channels and Common Sense media ratings. In the home, users can watch their entire TV line-up on phones, tablets and laptops.
But not on the Apple TV or other set-top boxes. sigh Because why would I want to watch TV shows on my nice big TV set? Look, I’m paying for Comcast’s TV streaming option, which gives me access to these apps, but it’s utterly ridiculous that I can’t watch the shows on my Apple TV. They’ve already got my money, so just give me a product I’ll want to use.
