Comcast has relaunched its Xfinity TV Player app as Xfinity TV Go for iOS devices, allowing subscribers to now stream TV shows and movies from the service's premium channels on both the iPhone and iPad. The app also allows users to download TV shows and movies to their devices for offline viewing, and also includes parental control options. Currently, streaming and downloading of video is only supported in the United States.

xfinitytvgo

XFINITY subscribers can watch thousands of XFINITY On Demand™ TV shows and movies anytime, anywhere. (formerly XFINITY™ TV Player app)

• NEW - Watch your favorite sports, news and kids networks live.
• Stream TV shows and movies from premium channels like HBO, Starz, Showtime, Cinemax and cable channels like TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network, A&E, AMC, WETV, Food Network and HGTV
• Download TV shows and movies from Showtime, Streampix, Starz, Encore and MoviePlex and watch them when you’re offline.
• Set parental controls for privacy and peace of mind.

Previously, the Xfinity TV Player app only allowed for streaming of on demand movies and TV shows for viewing, as Comcast originally rolled out streaming video to iPod and iPhone in 2011. The company also rolled out its "AnyPlay" live TV streaming for iPad in January 2012, and notably dropped its 250GB data cap in favor of “improved data management“ this past March.

Xfinity TV Go is available as a free app for the iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]

Streaming over cellular is only available over Verizon. Come on Comcast...what a terrible decision! Not everyone has/wants Verizon.

Just a note, there is an option in the settings menu for cellular streaming.

Only for Verizon. Crappy decision by Comcast. My AT&T LTE is faster then Wi-Fi at home.

I hope they add it to the Apple TV. It would be nice to ditch cable boxes & use an Apple TV as a box. Having two remotes would be difficult but saving money on boxes would overide it.

I hope they don't. I like content creators having apps. Companies like comcast provide NOTHING but headaches and make it more difficult for consumers to get content from creators and for creators to get paid by consumers.

It's certain channels. Like CNN, ESPN, FOX News, MSNBC, etc.

Sucks, I wanted to stream channels like NFL Redzone, and local channels. :(

I usually stream ESPN live but I already have the WatchESPN app.

I hope they add more channels.

I rag on Comcast as much as anyone else, but this is a really nice app that lets me watch live tv on my terms.

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
