Xfinity Stream App on Apple TV

Xfinity Stream App on Apple TV

 

I've been using the Xfinity Stream Beta on my Roku device, but the Apple TV is my preferred media player. Since the Xfinity Stream app on iOS provides a great experience and works so well, are their any plans to roll out an Apple TV version of the app?

I have the same question - will there be an Xfinity/Comcast streaming app for the Apple TV soon?

Honestly, I don’t see it coming anytime soon, they need to create a contract with Apple to do so, most Apple devices don’t even support Comcast xfinity yet. It will come but it might be awhile.

my guess is you are not counting apple phones and tablets in your most devices sentence? They all work so far as far as I know.

Right why would they? Apple controls the largest market share of consumer electronics, yet comcast chose Roku... sigh ... I CANT wait until YouTube TV is available in my area!

Me too. I am waiting for this. It would make great sense from a consumer standpoint. Come on Comcast! Get the deed done. You already have a head start with the iPad and iPhone.

I just put a tv in my office and I have Ethernet to my Apple TV attached to it. I’d love to stream to the Apple TV and not have to get another box.  I’m willing to pay an additional fee but don’t want to run coax and I have my modem in bridge mode to my firewall disabling the Comcast WiFi so I don’t think a wireless box will work.  I’m even willing to stream from my phone or tablet using airplay but it’s disabled for some reason.

based on your current setup and desire you will need a Roku device. Did you check to see if the apple TV store has the xfinity Stream TV app available (yet)?

https://www.fastcompany.com/90205212/comcast-is-totally-ok-with-you-not-having-an-xfinity-set-top-bo... seems to say that you can use apple TV by end of the year (estimate).

Using Roku has worked great.  I too wanted Apple TV but alas, is not meant to be.  Roku will solve your no Cable Box/Coax and the Roku stick I'm using is better for me than Apple TV was.
