The XFINITY TV app for Samsung smart TVs is still in active development. We haven't announced a release date yet.

Re: Xfinity app for Samsung

You are confusing me Dan.

 

The "Ultra HD Sampler" has been around since May 2016. I have watched everything ever put on the app. The announcement on the app was back then and still pinned under a different posting section. The app has been a work in progress since before that date.

Sorry if my post was confusing. I am not referring to the Ultra HD Sampler app. I'm am referring to an "XFINITY TV" app which will be similar to the Roku app which is also in development.

Re: Xfinity app for Samsung

Is there timing for the Xfinity app for Samsung yet.  I recently bought a Samsung Smart TV with the promise of the Xfinity app....Any sense yet of when that will be live?

Pending a firmware update from Samsung. Timing is TBD until that is ready and tested. Sorry for the delay.

Avoiding cable box and using smart TV

I need to fill a new house with TVs (4). I'm looking at using Comcast as my provider and buying Samsung TV's. I see that the built in app is not ready but the rep told me I can download it as long as the TV has a Play Store download capability. Is this correct, is there a particular Samsung model I should look for, and do these TV's have update capability like a computer so I can add your app separately when it is ready (vs. being locked into hardware restrictions once I buy it)?

 

Thanks
