Xfinity Streaming and Chromecast

Considering dropping our traditional Comcast service and going with the streaming service...much more economical...but my TV isn't 'smart'.  Can I 'cast' the streaming service to my TV?  Question #2: does the streaming service offer HD?  

Thanks!

If you use a pc you can cast using devices like chrome cast or just use an hdmi cable.

 

Yes some channels are in HD -

 

"Does XFINITY Stream package include HD channels?
Yes, most channels included in your XFINITY Stream package lineup are available in HD."

I know I can use a PC, but can I cast to the TV from a phone or tablet using Chromecast or Viziocast (from my soundbar)?

Casting or mirroring of any kind the screen of a mobile device is blocked when using the app to stream

I just had an agent tell me you can cast from a phone but you say you cannot. I believe you because it does not work. The sales agents will tell any lie to get you to sign up.

I would suggest giving YouTubeTV a try. Lower price/channel lineup and Chromecast support.
