What good is xFinityTV's mobile app for android if it doesn't do video streaming?

I switched from iPad to Android and was sorely disappointed to learn the XfinityTV mobile app does allow streaming of videos.  This, to me, makes the mobile app for androids totally worthless. 

 

At the very least, Xfinity should allow android users to view xfinityTV via their mobile device's web browser.

 

I'm actually debating on whether to take the Android tablet back to the store, or to find another tv service provider.

We're excited to announce that we've just launched the Xfinity TV Player app for Android, which provides streaming capabilities.

make sure you do your research either way.  its widely known the app only works for on demand for ipad.  its all based on the provider and the app.
