Will the XFINITY stream app use my data?

Will the XFINITY Stream app use the data on my phone? I have a limited plan and want to avoid overages.

Yes, unless you're using wifi for data.

the stream app is set by default to not use cell data (that is that it will only work while connected to wifi. If you have gone into settings at some point and turned on the ability to use cell data, you can go back into settings and turn off the 'use cell data' switch.
