Old man switching from old CRT to slightly less old Sony KDL-40S4100 LCD TV.

I'm switching from an ancient CRT #TV & ancient RNG100 cable box to an old but less ancient Sony KDL-40S4100.
Do I need a new box & or remote to take full advantage of what Xfinity can do for me? If so, what free kinds? What is available for free from Xfinity?
I have Xfinity internet that I pay for and an Xfinity cable TV package provided by the apartment complex. 
I'm looking for any info useful for an old man with this TV who's way out of touch with modern tv and streaming tech.
A Roku stick, which I'm totally unfamiliar with, will arrive within an hour.
