Xfinity Stream screen cast

Is there a way to stream-cast from Xfinity Stream mobile app to Chromecast (not just mirror screen)? Just like ok HBO Go. If not, will this feature be added soon?

Casting or mirroring from mobile devices is blocked by comcast, they have not mentioned any plans to allow this. The only way to get stream to tv is with a pc and hooking pc to tv using hdmi.

dominusdemonum, mvenanzi is correct. This is not an active feature at the moment. I have not been told of a release date for this feature.

Re: Xfinity Stream screen cast

Thank you both.
The whole point behind my question was to be able to watch videos from Xfinity on my large screen TV and surround sound without the hassles of cables. If casting is prohibited, perhaps you could create a smart TV app for Xfinity Stream (like Netflix or Hulu) that I can install on my player/TV. I would still have to log in with my valid membership, so piracy or security should not be an issue. This would be a "nice to have" feature.
