How to install Xfinity Stream TV app on Samsung Smart TV

Can the Xfinity Stream TV app be installed on a Samsung Smart TV? I've tried to download it from the Google Play Store website using the Samsung Browser, but I get a "no device selected" message.

some TVs might have a Roku built in, but other than that, 'no' at this time.

Yes, I had an on-line chat with an Xfinity Apps support tech earlier today, She confirmed that the only option currenlty available is to use the "Xfinity Stream Beta" app (downloaded via the Roku Channel Store) with a Roku device. I chose the "Roku Streaming Stick" device (3800). I set this up this evening and it is working extremely well.
