Stream TV App on Android TV.

Regular Contributor

Stream TV App on Android TV.

When is Comcast going to release a Stream TV App for Android TV devices such as the NVIDIA Shield Android TV? Also why does Comcast still rufuse to offer support for many TV Anywhere apps on Android TV? I know I am going to get the "contractual" excuse as always. Funny how most other service providers have no trouble making such deals.

There's no trouble making the deals, they just have to be willing to pay for it, comcast isn't.

Guess that means it is time to look more into the streaming TV service providers who seem more inclined to spend money on 21st century technologies while Comcast can stick to doing business like it is still the 20th centrury. Comcast is so cheap they won't even modify their Stream TV Android app to work on Android TV or Fire OS or their IOS app to work on TVOS. No wonder they have one of the lowest customer service ratings.

It not that they won't do, its that they would have to pay the providers, the networks, more.

Like I said most other providers don't seem to have a problem paying while Comcast does. Other providers seem to want to invest in current technologies while Comcast does not want to do so. That is their decision. With more TV streaming providers available now, Comcast's local monopoly on TV service isn't as big a deal as it was a few years ago. Now their monopoly on local broadband service is still a big problem. Most likely why they invest most of their bandwidth and money in their broadband service while pretty much neglecting the TV side of their business.

adding to others, Comcast has to pay per set top outlet so we have to pay per set top outlet. the streaming rights are separate from that. you can use a desk/laptop and HDMI connector or use the currently free Roku beta Stream app.
