Status On Samsung Smart TV App?

Has anyone heard anything lately on the status of the Xfinity App for the Samsung Smart TV? I'm holding off buying a new flat screen,and that App may be my decision to go with Samsung.

if I may ask what is it about the app that would make you wait to buy a tv?  Your going to need a cable box anyway, this is just for my own curiousity.

Thanks for the reply Rog.

 

I thought the app will allow me to view online content through Xfinity? Like I do on my laptop now?  I already have cable with a dvr and Internet with them. But some shows aren't available On Demand or cable. Yes I could hook my laptop up to my 52 inch plasma,just thought it be more convenient to have the app,in order not to have to do that each time I want to watch something on a big screen. Would you want to watch the Stargate series on a small 17 inch screen or a 52 inch screen?  I always say the bigger the better when it comes to some movies and shows.

I looked this up and it looks pretty cool, here is a link below about what you can do.  There is no info on integration into samsungs tv though.

I will also add that if you have an xbox 360 comcast is going to be showing programming through that also.
