Still no Apple TV App

Why is Comcast dragging their feet on this? Apple TV beats Roku anyday. They already have an iOS app that they should be able to easily port to Apple TV, but it seems to me like they have no interest in being competitive. Even Verizon has an Apple TV streaming app.

 

Us Apple TV users need answers Comcast. Definitely thinking about changing providers.

We shouldn't have to use a Roku. Apple TV is one of the big streaming devices, and is supported by other internet providers. Verizon and Spectrum both have an Apple TV streaming app, as does Direct TV. It seems to me like Comcast just really wants to stick it to their customers with Apple TVs.

why do you not presume apple just doesn't want comcast's streaming TV service on their apple devices?

Re: Still no Apple TV App

Because that isn't how publishing a tvOS app works. Like I said previously, every other major provider has a streaming app available on tvOS except for Comcast. I know I'm not the only one complaining about this.
