Good article. Thank you for sharing.

 

From the article:

 

'Strauss says his product team is actively developing the X1 interface for additional platforms to roll out over the next year. (The big remaining TV platforms are Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Vizio’s SmartCast OS, and various gaming consoles.)'

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

I had an Xfinity rep come to my door a couple of weekends ago. He was trying to get me to go with their internet and apparently didn’t know we already had it. We struck up a convo and he told me that it would be available for the Firestick in January 2019. Don’t know how true it is but I have my fingers crossed.

I will definitely check out XFinity Stream again once it is available on Amazon FireTV!

 

Thanks for the info.

Not on my Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV stick...

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

The app has been available, but it isn’t compatible with the Firestick or Fire tv. It updated Nov. 28, but still shows as incompatible with those devices.

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

And what really angers me is every time Xfinity calls to try and get me to upgrade my constantly problematic internet, they tell me it is compatible. Wrong!

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

Rustyben,

 

Any word on just the Fire TV or Fire TV stick that you have heard?

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

I too would love to get the Xfinity app for my Amazon Fire TV. I am paying extra for Xfinity streaming service so like to see it happen soon!

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

Your link shows devices that are compatible but doesn't show how to install on Amazon Fire TV.. do you have a link that shows how to do this since it isn't in the Amazon app store ?

 

Thanks

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

Good answer. These all share the same Android code base as you are obviously already aware. Why then does it take forever to get this on Fire TV? Do you have any type of soft date you can provide?

Re: Xfinity Stream App - Amazon Fire TV

a modified app allows the theft of services not granted by Comcast. the maker of the app would have to give written permission to modify the app, and to approve of the 'free' use of their bandwidth and video services with the modified app. If the app is not supplied by the device's actual store authorized by Comcast then the app has no such permission to be operated on that device. Stay safe and just use the very inexpensive Roku and enjoy the beta channel stream app while it is free of monthly charge.
