Qn65q7f xfinitysteam app

Qn65q7f xfinitysteam app

I bought a Samsung qn65q7f because it was announced that the xfinitysteam was available on ruku and samsung smart tv. Now the app is unavailable and samsung said xfinity needs to build the app. I would like to go to you guys for my streaming instead of directgo or playstation vue. I've been a dish customer 22yrs with grandfather rights so your X1 is about 55buck to high, but you can have me for streaming instead of dish. Plz build the app.

The only xf app for samsung tvs that I've ever heard about is the uhd sampler app. Where did you see that the stream tv app was available on samsung tvs?

Re: Qn65q7f xfinitysteam app

From the verge I beleive. Your CEO was saying Feb 2017 that they were going to roll out a competing app with Hulu and directgo app partnering with samsung and ruko for instant tv. Seeings how I have xfinity internet. if i cord cut I should give xfinity a shot instead of directgo. So i picked up my tv after thanksgiving. I thought the app would there. Just that ulta hd xfinity app. So i started calling xfinity support and samsung support. Now i should have not bought the tv just a ruko. My wife needs simple systems. Not 3 to 5 clicks to see here wheel of fortune. So the tv app would have been the best.
