Using Xfinity Stream App With Google TV?

For the new Chromecast with Google TV, can Xfinity Stream be added as an app?  Or is the only way to use Xfinity Stream app to cast directly from the Xfinity Stream app to a Chromecast device?


Also, for those with a Chromecast with Google TV, is it basically true that the picture and sound quality using the cast function directly from the app directly to a Chromecast device may be of lesser quality versus adding streaming the same streaming service from Google TV?

using the chromecast device the resolution is limited to the signal quality available to the chromecast device. Some older chromecast devices are not capable of over 1080p.  A modern Roku device would allow direct use of the service wirelessly or using ethernet.
